Creality Ender 3, thinking about grabbing one
Found this printer and have heard mostly good things about it. It is sub $200 (plus shipping) and has been out for a month or so. Going to wait a little bit and see if anything comes up, but going to keep an eye on it.

Oooh nice! I've really been wanting to get larger printer. I'll have to keep my eye on this one!

Looks like a fantastic deal, good find! At this price they will do well once the bugs get worked out.

220 x 220 x 250 mm build volume with a heated bed? Very nice. That's double the volume of the printer I'm looking at for almost as much. It looks like the temps are higher too. I'll definitely keep an eye on this one.

I found this guy yesterday: Flyingbear P905

It has a big build volume, full metal cube frame. Seems stout, but not a lot of review info online.

I've been following the owners group on facebook, seeing a lot of user error or just results from sub par extruders , platforms, nozzles and levels. I'm also seeing a lot of success too but they are from highly experienced people who own a bunch of them. Also seeing people printing extra support hardware or tension hardware to get it to print nicer.

I like how affordable it is, but am feeling like I would like something better all around quality for my first one.

I've been watching this model very closely along with the Monoprice Mini Delta. The more I think about it, the Ender 3 is really looking like the top contender in my search. They're both in the same price range. They both have heated beds. Reviews for the Ender 3 seem to be really good across the board. Plus the build volume is double that of the Mini Delta. Also, while the Mini Delta claims to be able to print ABS, users are reporting that the heated bed can't get up to temperature in order to do it without modding the power supply.

I'm invested into the BuildOne that I saw on kickstarter. Still waiting on it, but it should be good when it comes out. It is local to me (2hr drive) and the company is Digistump, who already puts out great products. The Ender 3 however, looks pretty good. I may have to get one of these in the future.

Banggood has them on sale until May 31 for $199 ($215.92 shipped to my address)

Thanks for the tip. I'll keep them in mind.
