Best budget studio monitors?

hey guys,not sure if this the right place to post (feel free to move it,mods)

anyway,i know this question has been asked already but there is so many
varied opinions on this topic.

im moving from south east asia back home to italy,and sadly i can not take my studio monitors with me.way too heavy.so im looking to buy something quick and easy on a budget.not planning on staying in italy for too long.what would you suggest?
everybody seems to be praising the mackie cr3 but to be honest,they feel like a "toy"(more like glorified pc speakers than studio monitors).i need something a little more serious.i need honest to god studio monitors.willing to go second hand (price range 200$ tops).im not expecting mind blowing quality (you get what you pay for...or as we say in italy : "pochi soldi poca musica").but STILL...i would rather have a not so good STUDIO MONITOR than a glorified pc speaker.

what should i go with?what are my best options for 200$ that would still fall under the category of REAL/PROFESSIONAL/SERIOUS studio monitors?(even if just barely)

let me know,thanks in advance

Absolutely buy second hand. JBL LSR305 for example. They are everywhere. I used them for a couple of years. They do great for the price.

Behringer is very hit and miss. I'd buy just about anything BUT Behringer

I love my Yamaha HS5s, if you can find some used.

I have the jBL LSR305 too, great budget monitors.
Maybe you can find a pair secondhand IK Multimedia Iloud Micro Monitor or KRK Rokit 6 G3
Great monitors too.
