I've been using the Cuisinart Supreme Grind since October.  I  purchased it 
at Sam's Club for $29.00.  I think it's a good purchase  for the price.  The 
grinds are even, I keep it set at a notch or  two above medium.   It's grinds 
better then my Bodum  C-Mill.  It's quite noisy, but I don't mind that because I 
get an even  coffee grind.  ......Dorothy

I have one also.  My first one died on me after a while (maybe month or two),
the motor just stopped working.  Got it replaced and haven't had an issue
since.
Its my first grinder so I don't have much to compare it to.  I mostly use a
french press and a course grind works quite well.  I may experience a little
sludge at the bottom of a full 32oz brew but nothing to be unhappy about.
hope this helps...

I have been using one of these since December.  (My first grinder, too,
though I have used a few others.)  Overall it does the job just fine for my
paper filters.  That said I would hesitate to use it with a press due to
not-so-impressive evenness of grind.  (Lots of "fines" mixed in...I think
it's due to to the cheap burr design.)  The only other thing I don't like
about it is noise level, as it is far louder than some of the other (I
admit, smaller) consumer burr mills that I have used.  The base
feels extremely solid, and the switches are probably "good enough."  The
hopper and grind collector won't take much abuse but are, again, "good
enough."  The dosing feature is very convenient.  The only hitch to that is
that I tend to spend a few seconds pulsing it at the end to get the last few
bits of coffee through the burrs.
I would rate it a 5 out of 10, but worth the $50 I paid.  ("On sale" at a
mall store...don't pay any more than that.)  I think that the little mill my
girlfriend's parents have is a Black&Decker?  The thing is probably 20 years
old and I didn't see anything like it while I was wandering between
retailers looking for a mill.  The grind quality on that one isn't
fantastic, either, but it makes much less noise.
