This Victoria (Corona) Grain Mill with high hopper has been working fine for me, but if you can splurge get a double roller one. I picked mine up at my LHBS for about $50.

Many of us use the corona style mill (the same one that CHarlie Papazian gets 87% efficiency with) that can range anywhere from 15-40 dollars, and can be easily tweaked. We have a big thread on it here. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/my-ugly-junk-corona-mill-station-90849/

Another option is the modded 20 dollar pasta machine from Michael's Arts and Crafts, plenty of folks are getting great efficiencies with them as well. There is a great thread about that here as well. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/using-pasta-maker-mill-grain-75784/

If you want cheap and you aren't running 10gallon grain bills through it the corona can suit you otherwise yeah you are looking around at least 150$ (someone correct me if I'm wrong)

I run 12 gallon grain bills through my Corona mill. I do use a heavy-duty drill to power it, though.

Yeah, I've run 20 pound grainbills through mine with a drill. The grainbill size doesn't really matter, no more than any other grainmill.
