Seeking burr grinder for paper filter coffee-making

Hi folks,

Sebby & I aren't happy with ground-at-the-store beans, let alone pre-ground ones, and our few forays into grinding at home with our bladed grinder (purchased for spices, not coffee) have been predictably unsatisfactory (loud, slow, powdery and chunky all at once, you know the drill). Since we don't seek espresso enlightenment, I'm hoping we can get away with one of the sub-$200 burred units that don't weigh a ton or take a lot of counter space.

I have done the obligatory board searches, and nearly all posts deal with espresso uses - we use a manual paper filter holder dripping into a carafe 98% of the time, and a french press once in a blue moon.

Any suggestions?
