Advice for espresso grinder, $500-$1000 budget

Fellow Ode brew grinder review

Interesting, the website I'm looking at buying from states that the white model comes with the new V2 burrs, but maybe they are on "pre-sale" although they usually indicate when things won't be immediate shipped. I'll send a message to the website to enquire
