What other 3D printer brands do you recommend?

While I've had fun converting my CNC router to a 3D printer, I am ready to get it back to its intended purpose. My first thought was to go with a Metal Plus upgrade kit, but I'm not sure I want to spend that kind of dough. Then I saw the MendelMax 3 kit, which is absolutely beautiful, and I am soooo tempted, but it starts at $1300. I've looked at MakerFarm, and I know they get excellent reviews. I have realized, though, that my two Simples have spoiled me to, well, simple design. Especially the Printrbot metal printers. It looks like they really streamlined the printer and the process. I don't want a build that will take days.

So what would you recommend around $1k? Obviously less is better, but in the end I don't want to have to mod (too much, anyway) or spend countless hours tinkering to get things to work just ok.

Do you recommend the FlashForge over the Metal Plus?

Thanks for the recommendation! I realized a moment ago that I hadn't been looking at the creator pro, but rather a different model made of wood, which was kind of a turn off. After looking at the correct model and reading reviews, I'm seriously leaning in that direction.

If I could start over I would get a FlashForge or Ultimaker Original... But then again, I would have missed out on all the maddening print failures that make this a "hobby" of mine. ;-)

I will also recommend the flashforge or similar type printers that only has the bed moving in the Z axis.

I bought a Kossel Pro off of kickstarter and have been using it for about three months now. It's an awesome printer! I highly recommend looking into delta style printers if you have experience using cartesian printers.

One of my coworkers has a Lulzbot TAZ 4. He seems to get good results with it.

I was also facing the same type of issues when I started my career in 3D printing. It becomes difficult to choose the best one when you have a lot of options in front of you. I was under the same situation, then I research a lot on this topic. I found some good blogs and articles that actually helped me to take the right decision. I have found some of the articles for you to read and take the right decision.

I have bought Inova 1800 a few weeks ago. It is a good printer and working fine as per my expectations.
