You'll spend a lot of time getting those things to print well. I prefer the out of the box experience of my Prusas to any cheap printer I've ever owned. Even my ancient Makerbot Replicator 2 was better than the cheapies. Spent way too much time screwing with $300 printers when I could have just been printing.

Yeah, the entry level had been around $300 before, $160 for a decent sized printer is crazy.


Agreed that it's gonna be a lot of tuning and hacking if you want really good results, but for largish parts with 200um layer height, a cheapy will do the business at least for a while. If you want reliable tolerances, good basic profiles, broad option and material support, and repeatable performance, you pay a bit more. If you're just tinkering, maybe that's not required, but if you're trying to make replacement parts, production parts, or anything with a timing constraint, it goes a long way, and it's why I ended up getting a Prusa as well ($750, if I remember right, without the MMU).
