Ken,
head over to www.coffeegeek.com and read the grinder reviews - look up the

I've been happy with mine so far for drip, press and vacuum pot.  I've =
got the metal case version, and I've had no static problems.  Did you =
get the plastic case version?

It got good reviews on coffeegeek. Not adjustable or consistent enough  =
for espresso, but a good grinder for french press, drip, etc. My  =
second grinder (Rocky for espresso) is a Breville conical which I'm  =
very pleased with.

I have a Macap M4 stepless i use for espresso and got the Capresso last month for drip.
I roasted some Kona Friday night in the Behmor.  Ground it up this morning and gave it
to my husband to take to work not telling him what coffee it was.  he called
and said I must have ground it too fine b/c it never dripped thru.  I was SO bummed!  
I went away with my sisters last weekend and took the Capresso in my suitcase along
w/ my roasted beans and it worked fine.  I guess I was careless this morning...too bad it was Kona.

you'd be aware of static issues.  when you open the canister that holds the
grinds, grinds would fly everywhere!  if that's not happening, you're not
having static issues.
we just finished the last extensive thread on grinders.  why did you open
this can of worms??

I was given a Capresso 560 Infinity conical grinder over the holidays and it 
is great!  Around $89 on several internet sites.  It'll do everything from 
coarse to a very fine powder.  Very even grind.  Slow conical movement and 
quiet.  Believe it or not, it's a comparable grind to my commercial La 
Pavoni ZIP grinder.

I had the infinity chrome and it did do a good job for drip but i
couldn't get consistent enough for espresso.  i got the rocky for that
and then I lucked into the mazzer, so now the rocky does daily grind
for drip and my infinity is a good backup.  I made excellent coffee
with it for a presentation I did for my wife's kitchen chemistry
class, where the college freshmen were introduced to the joy of Jacu
bird coffee!

I have to respectfully disagree with Brett - Ken, I say, make a cup of your
homeroast -
and then you decide.
Take in all the information you can, but don't let others decide for you.
