We're about 60-40 in favor of the electrics on this list.
We're about 70-30 for the SMP over the Kitchen-Aid on this list.

  Great stats, thanks!
I happen to love my Zasses and my Trossers.  I also have a Cory electric which was made by Hobart/Ketchen-Aid in the 50's.  I also have a Rocky doserless which I love. 
   
  I haven't heard much about Trosser grinders.  Are they easy to come by? I've read a lot here about getting a Zass on Ebay Germany but I am lost there.  Spreken ze no Deutch!  (nor can I spell it)
Some people don't like the zass because they don't like or cannot grind manually.  Some have bought recent zasses and been disappointed in the grind.  Most Zass owners love them and won't part with them. 
Some people disparage the Solis Maestro Plus because only the top burr is removable.  Turned out that the bottom burr aslo comes out, but unscrews opposite what you'd expect.  Also the SMP is reputed not to be fine enough and consistent enough for espresso, though some use it. 
   
  Some don't like the Kitchen-Aid because apparently they don't get the grind they want.  I love my Cory for drip - it's essentially an old Kitchen-Aid.
Maybe you should ask a more gentle question, like religion or politics...
