So a couple weeks ago I bought my 3rd 3D printer, a Makerbot Replicator 2.
Things have come a long way since I started with a Makerbot Thing-o-matic kit, then building a reprap Prusa, and now this guy.
My first two were pretty much ABS printers exclusively, this Replicator 2 is basically PLA exclusively unless you do a few upgrades to it.
Quite impressed with it's prints right out of the box, and if you put Sailfish firmware on it, it's even more wicked.
Defineatly a different experience buying it from a local store too, Microcenter, instead of a kit.
Overall quite impressed with it so far.
They've released their 5th Gen replicators now, but I've been hearing lots of extruder issues with them, so the 4th Gen, which is more user serviceable and upgradable was the best choice for me.
