Quality coffee bean grinders to invest in?

Hello everyone. I'm currently looking for a well-built coffee bean grinder to purchase. To give a little more detail, I'm looking for a grinder that can do coarse (cold brew, French press) and medium (pour over Chemex) grinds well. I currently have an electric Hamilton Beach blade grinder that was recently gifted to me, but the grinds are kind of inconsistent, especially when I'm trying to do coarse grinds.

I have been looking on Amazon for bean grinders. There are some that catch my eye that are well reviewed. But I'm hesitant to purchase one of them because a lot of third party sellers (even some name-brand sellers to my knowledge) have reviews that are bought or generated by bots.

I'm trying to keep the budget for it $80 or less (might be unrealistic, I know). But if the grinder is built to last and can get the job done, I can shell out a little over my budget if necessary. I would prefer a hand/manual grinder, but I'm open to electric ones as well.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
