    I found the best for me, as someone who like to have a go at anything, a kit printer was the way forward, that way i knew hiw it went together and whag each part did, meaning i could sort out any issues as they arouse, i bought a ctc i3 clone, not the usual dual head enclosed CTC. The best way is to take your time building and make sure everything is square and true, watch youtube videos and read reviews,
    My printer is about 18 months old and has only had a few problems, mainly caused by a ham fisted idiot (me)
    Take your time, ensure the bed is levelled and the extruders are calibrated properly and any printer will work as good as a 2000 one

                Its difficult to make money from printing, its ok to make beer money, but you wont be retiring in 3 years, Its a very time consuming hobby, with a huge learning curve
