Noise: It's (relatively) loud. This isn't a big deal if you're just at home but I use this in an office setting and I don't want to attract too much attention. No model is whisper quiet but the motor and beans produce quite a cacophony.
Mess: The design of the top fitting into the base isn't thought out. The plastic safety top fits around the base instead of going into it. As a result, there's some slight spillage of grounds when you take the top off. In addition, you'll be hard pressed if you want to pour the grounds into the top after grinding and then measure the grounds from there because there's a indentation in the top that prevents easy scooping, thereby producing more mess.
Grind quality: There is something is the blade design (I think because the blades sit a little higher from the bottom of the container) that prevents it from producing a fine grind no matter how long you hold the button.
The better models are those from Krups and Black & Decker. They are about $5 more but are worth it in terms of the above considerations.
As for the motor, it is smooth running, the blades are well balanced, and I expect a long life. I had to buy a new grinder because my older brand name unit broke the top when dropped. I did not like the top cap being used as a switch on that older brand name unit because it would let grounds escape when I use my 3 step grind to get all the big pieces down to the blades.
The grind size is proportional to how long you hold the button down - about 3 one second bursts are sufficient to make beans into grinds for a drip maker. A little more might make cappucino (sic?) grinds, but I'm not that exotic. It's a great price and a bargain compared to what I paid for a worse design years ago!

Works great! I've used for coffee beans and peanuts so far.
My tip to prevent a mess: I grind, then flip upside down and shake everything into the lid. Read more
Very powerful and grids well. Great for grinding small quantities of coffee beans, nuts or seeds. Love it.Published 13 months ago by Txlaw
I am not happy with this grinder at all. It is really messy, the lid collects static and the coffee sticks to the lid and then spills out when you take the lid off. Read morePublished 15 months ago by kendra marceau
