You can buy this at Walmart for 170 bucks!

you get what you pay for. my first printer was a cheap kit. it worked, and you could tweak it to print great… but that's the thing… i've spend just as much or more tweaking the stupid thing or replacing parts than actually printing. when you print things that go for 10-20+ hours, then you'll see why $170 bucks don't cut it.

Jakob Stahrfisher it's a derivative design that doesn't have the auto calibration features. Still, I've heard good things about this printer, especially if you're on a tighter budget.

Original Prusa i3 MK2First off "The worst customer support ever!!"Secondly if your in a US time zone good luck trying to get in touch with them even via email.It will be a back and forth brief one sentence email that will last weeks.Thirdly, when you receive your box from Europe, it will most likely be damaged and a very good chance the printer will need not only adjustments from being banged around so badly, but likely cracked and/or broken parts.Now that we discussed the good, on to the bad.Once you have a problem that you cannot fix or repair yourself… Read more »

buy from china…. $150 including shipping…. leaves hundreds of dollars for spare parts… or maybe four printers for the price of one prusa

he's the original creator of that type of printer. its more like supporting the guy and improvements to the industry. no chinese company does any of that. also house fires are real thing with those cheap printers. just a month ago an anet a8 burnt down a house.

So, on Amazon, it seems all the prusa printers are shipped or fabricated by other companies…For example, HICTOP Filament Monitor Desktop 3D Printer Kits Reprap Prusa I3 MK8. Would this be considered the same thing (though Mk8 instead of Mk2)? Or is it better to try and find a Prusa specific device? Thanks!

this is the original prusa cause he invented this designed years ago, open sourced and all those others use that design. this one is actually made by him and has a few things much better than those other printers have.
