I'm not knowledgeable about the Bunn, but have heard that it grinds 
a lot of coffee quickly and would be perfectly adequate for an drip
maker.
I've got the Mulino, and while I like it just fine, I wouldn't want to =
grind
that much coffee in it everyday.  It's not that fast.  The hopper is =
kind
of a pain.  You have to do the Mulino "shake" once in awhile to get 
the last beans to feed.  It's messy, and static can be a problem.
The Mulino's big plus is that you can use it for espresso (it can be
adjusted to grind finer than factory settings).
The Mulino wouldn't be my choice if I had your needs.

The bean feed chute is far superior on the Maestro versus the 177. Not =
almost flat on the bottom of the bin like the 177 but a good steep =
angle... Also, even though the grind rpm is slower on the Maestro being =
1/2 the Mulino for some reason it actually seems to grind faster. Maybe =
it's do to the better bean feeding...

Have the Bunn home grinder and it grinds quite adequately for drip and
vac-not tried it for espresso but assume it would work just fine.  It is not
the fastest grinder in the world but I think it is very durable.  Static is
not a big issue and it is fairly clean-has a rubber gasket that seals it
fairly well.  You do have to jiggle it a couple of times to get the last
beans to fall into the burr.  I clean it every year or so whether it needs
it or not.  Takes about 1/2 hour.  It also is not the quietest thing on the
planet either.  Have ran several rocks through it and the burrs are still
ok.  Probably ground maybe 70# so far.  Someone did a test of the grounds
for consistency and this Bunn got one of the best ratings.  Maybe the
biggest negative for some is that it is butt ugly.
Have a Bunn G2 on the way-will time how long it takes enough for one vac
pot-in 30 seconds it will do a pound-am guessing about 5 to 7 seconds.
