The Encore is lauded by coffee experts as THE go-to entry level grinder for those brewing coffee at home. The Encore gives a great grind for drip/manual brew and also grinds fine enough for espresso. Featuring 40 individual grind settings, from fine to coarse, the Encore can please any palate with its gamut of accurate and repeatable grind settings. The Encore has an accurate medium to coarse grind for the increasingly popular manual brew methods such as pour-over, Aeropress, Siphon and Chemex. The specially designed burrs give a precise grind with minimal fines for a flavorful, balanced extraction when making espresso. And, of course, the Encore is built with the quality Baratza parts you've come to trust. The efficient DC motor keeps your beans cool, even during extended grind times, while a combination of electric and gear speed reducers slow the burr to 450 RPM, ensuring a smooth bean feed and reducing noise, heat and static buildup. Beyond a great coffee-drinking experience, the Encore makes for a great coffee-making experience. A convenient, front-mounted pulse button makes it easy to grind on demand into your brew basket. Whether you are looking for an espresso grinder or a grinder to help you explore that extensive range of brew methods, the Encore is a great all around home grinder.

Grind for espresso on setting 1, which is what I wanted it for, is OK with quite a heavy tamp. I think it is possible to adjust it further by moving shims, so I might look into that. My Rancilio Silvia seems to have a very powerful pump which requires a very fine grind, more-so than my old Gaggia Classic needed.
Grind for filter is very good with quite a lot of adjustment in the region of 13-14. Not tried it for Cafetierre/French Press yet.
The additional power button on the front to just grind enough for straight into the portofilter is a really useful little touch.
All in all, it seems pretty good.
Update December 2014 - Review upgraded to 5 stars...
As per the original review above, I was a bit concerned about the fine grind for espresso being fine enough. Anyway I was thinking about adjusting the machine from the advice on Baratza's website (Thanks for the link in the comments area Mr.S Mellins) but when I had a look I noticed the opening advice from Baratza was don't be too hasty to adjust, let the machine settle down first.
You're probably ahead of me here, but guess what, after about 5 hoppers' worth of beans ground, the fine grind is quite a bit finer. In fact on the finest level it now chokes out the Rancilio. So on that basis, I do think this is an excellent grinder for the money, worth 5 stars and if you do get one, give it some time to bed in before recalibrating it finer. It may well sort itself out.
Despite some people's reservations as to whether this is suitable for the UK, the 110 figure quoted in the product title is actually the wattage, it does indeed operate on 240 volts!
Grind is adjusted by rotating the hopper (while grinding) but the indicator line on the hopper is a little difficult to see (it is raised so I just have my thumb touching it as I rotate it). Hopper lid is dished, so you could weigh your beans on it before tipping them in if you are particular. Grind seems to be pretty consistent: I set it to about 7-10 for espresso and around 22 for cafetiere (finer than the guidelines I think) and it goes up to 40.
A tiny bit messy when you remove the container, more so if you grind directly into your portafilter/group handle (but that's a nice option). Obviously it's a bit noisy when grinding but you expect that, and miles quieter than a blade.
Torn between 4 and 5 stars.
I absolutely recommend this grinder as a big step up in quality from the £30-£50 range.
