Welcome to the forum Weagles.
Regarding reviews, try typing in the machine name with the word review after it i.e. Rancilio Silvia review, first one to come up for me was a 2012 review.
With espresso machines like most other things you get what you pay for, perhaps if you keep your eye open for a good second hand machine and grinder.
Combo machine grinders are in my opinion generally a compromise.
