Your best bet is to go vintage. There are a lot of quite decent older turntables going for cheap, that will beat the pants off all those current low end junk.
Technics, Pioneer, Dual, Harman Kardon, Kenwood, Akai, Taya, and many more made turntables 30 years ago, that were built to last. The Curtis, Crosley, cheap Denon, Ion, etc. you see to-day for up to $200 or more will not last 5 years. For reasonably decent entry-level new ones, look at Rega or Project.
Keep them spinning.
