Original Prusa Mk2 to Mk3 are the best.

since around of 2 years i working with this equipment and i dont have  problems.

the printer is chip compared with others brands, we can used any Brand of filaments, print all materials and if you combinate the prusa with Olsson ruby, this printer is powerful because dont need careful for the good print of materials and problems with the nozzle.

The best printer!

All around great printer

Bought mine as a kit. Directions were ridiculously good. Just like building a Lego set. Worth every penny. Replacement parts are readily available. Tons of info and help available as this is a very popular printer. This is absolutely the way to go. My only complaint is it looks like upgrading the firmware through Linux is a bit complicated. That said, it looks doable as long as you follow instructions.

Not always perfect

First of all, this is a kit printer. It was my first personal 3d printer. I had had some experience with my high school's stratasys fortus 250mc, so I knew my way around 3d printing in general. Assembling the kit wasn't difficult, but I feel you should have a bit of a mechanical/computer inclination to mess with assembling/calibrating/operating such a bare and raw printer.

Pros;

Inexpensive

Open source

Replacement parts

Print volume

There are certain issues I have with the machine, but they aren't anything that can't be fixed with a little tweaking. 

I would definitely recommend getting a prusa/anet/any kit printer as a first 3d printer. There is a learning curve, but you will know so much more about the workings of the machine than if you simply buy a factory built, factory leveled, ready to go machine.

Don't go cheaper, this is a winer horse!

I've bought it more than a year ago. I've made somre updates, the big one te "The bear update", but I can say that prints almost perfect out of the box. And beafore some adjustment it's a ten.

I love my Prusa Mk2S

Built from a kit and as long as you follow the instructions you'll be fine, some things in the design may have been improved to aid in the build for the price you pay, great support community as JP very proactive with the group, printing quality is on par with more expensive printers.

Prusa i3 MK2s RULES!!

This was my first printer and it made me feel like a pro right out of the box. I have had a lot of fun printing and I am still learning.

Best purchase of 2017

6 months in,  whenever something goes wrong, I know it is not my printer, but something I did wrong or a poor filament.      Amazing quality and consistency for the price, decent speed and build volume, and ability to handle different materials quite well..

Printed a thin wall large RC airplane ( 1.7 M wingspan) on 9 successive days, without a single problem!

I have tried some 3dprinters before and it was always a coin toss to find if you would be looking at a finished piece or a mess of molten filament...  Not with the Prusa

Only missing for me is to be able to see the estimated remaining time.    This is curiously not provided in the interface.        Ultrasoft flex material does not feed well, but there are few printers that can handle it.

When doing the assembly, make sure to follow the instructions very carefully.  (Kit form).   They are well described, but you could go wrong if you are not careful in the assembly sequence.... 

Autoleveling works like magic

Fully reccommended
