Alas, there may not be one grinder that meets our needs for a high quality grinder for home use. I have a Solis Maestro Plus and a Mazzer Mini with my version of the Andy-Dan(dy) mods.

IMO the mini was designed for high volume commercial use. Lots of doses in succession with minute adjustments to dial in exact grind for one type of coffee at a time. When we try to use it at home for one shot at a time, of multiple varieties of coffee, or different types of grind, we run into the "extra trouble".

IMO the smp was designed for low volume home use. Easily grind just enough for one dose at a time. Switch varieties easily. Switch types of grind easily. Press pot, drip, espresso, turkish, etc. with just a few clicks. But the price point of a low volume home machine like the smp does not allow for quality output, especially for the more critical grinds like espresso.

So, which grinder is a coffeegeek going to buy? We accept the shortcomings of the mini because of the quality of the grind and the taste of the coffee. It's the price we pay :-( in addition to the price we pay :-) for the best results.
