It's loud. Seriously. Pay attention to the 'it's loud' reviews.

If I had to re-buy a burr grinder, I would pay way closer attention to the reviews of the volume. This does a great job grinding, but it's awfully loud.
Other reviews mention it's loud - it is. It's quite loud. Loud enough I've actually got it in the basement, away from the kitchen in our split-level house so I don't wake my small children in the morning when they're sleeping and I absolutely want to grind my beans to drink my coffee in peace and quiet.
Make no mistake, though. Burr grinders will improve your coffee drinking life. Get one. Maybe not this one, if you want a quiet model, but definitely get one.
