I've been enjoying the Niche Zero as well.

Noise was a definite criteria and while the Niche is not whisper quiet like the Eureka Atom, it's a world away from the Sette, which while a low retention value grinder is remarkably loud . For comparison, the Niche is also noticeably quieter than a Baratza Vario/Encore.

could you comment on a) build quality and b) whether they could deliver a product?

Those are basically my main reservations, as there a) is no long-term track record of performance and b) indiegogo thing is a donation, not a purchase.

For me, with exception of the Lexan polycarbonate lid, there is a reassuring heft to the build. Would I rather it be built like a Monolith or a commercial Malkohnig? Sure.

The first few runs were UK made, which was enough for me to go with the donation platform, though I believe the are transitioning production to the far east.

Here's a detailed write up which may be of relevance:
