Amazing Grinder May 31, 2018
Reviewer: Emilio from Fountain Hill, PA United States  
Zero retention, weight dosing, straight through chamber, tool less burr removal, fast grind time, plenty of adjustments coarse and fine. These are just some of the reasons this is the best grinder on the market. I can't begin to explain how much time and effort it saves me daily making coffee from pour over to espresso. The tech in this grinder should make it closer to $1000, but it's half that retail cost! You can't get a better bang for your buck and Baratza has one of the best customer service I know of should you have any issues.

Big drawback March 16, 2018
Reviewer: Oscar from Providence, RI United States  
The grinding mechanism is excellent , but unfortunately this grinder suffers from a massive flaw: it lacks heft (it's basically plastic), which makes the scales extremely susceptible to vibration.

Unless your hopper is full of beans, the grinder will occasionally stop a few grams short of the target. So you need to use a second, external scale to weight the portafilter before in case this happens, and then play with the manual grind button to try and top up the correct amount. Very frustrating. Contacted Baratza support and found them unhelpful and uninterested in solving the problem.

If you're considering this product, you might as well get the the Sette 270 (no W), which works on a timer instead, and buy a good external scale with the money you save. Or perhaps find another brand that cares a bit more.

Good Grinder, but takes patience... January 20, 2018
Reviewer: Mike Morgan from Eliot, ME United States  
The grinder itself is super fast.    I did have a problem with the one I received here, but Baratza replaced it, and the new one has been problem free.   The 270W is a bit finicky about being level and as I use it on a table, rather than a counter, it can get upset if the table moves at all while grinding.    That said, if I just power on, put in the portafilter, pick my pre-set 9 or 17gm, hit PLAY, it hits the weight target usually within 0.2 gm of target.    ...

Followup on this, 8 months later ...
I am now on my 4th 270W grinder.   Baratza has sent me 3 replacements as each one works for a while and then either the grinder stopped booting up or would fail to start grinding or decide to grind all of the beans in the hopper overflowing everywhere...     I have about 2 mos left on the warrantee and the next time I'm going to request a different model because I would never buy this again.     Maybe I've been unlucky, but from where I sit ... this grinder is just not worth the price.

Fast and consist January 19, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Japan  
Powder quality is constant and good for every time. (You have to calibrate once after grinding a pound of beans as described on manual.)
Weighing system is not as stable as I wished. It gives a few gram short sometime. Also control button is sometime jammed.  But these are easily avoided by pushing 2 arms back before placing a filter on it.
Static electricity may annoy you until you calibrate after first 1 pound bean. A washer which is included in package for calibration would reduced it. I also used unit-static elect tape for arms. Now I am no longer bothered with static electricity.
