PROS: Ready to print out of the box.
CONS: Smallish build area, relatively low max. temp

The first thing many people do with their printers is to print out upgrades or even print out parts for building a better printer. Have a look at places like Thingiverse that have models available for download, keeping your build area in mind. Also, 3d printing is not a fast process in this price range, so you will need to find a location where the heat, noise, or smell (ABS) won't cause problems, especially if you do overnight print jobs.

Printing on something basic like this reminds me of downloading a great game over a 56k modem hoping when you woke up in the morning nobody picked up the phone

What previous poster said is correct. You'll need a location with good ventilation and you'll need patience.

Get yourself an inexpensive roll of PLA plastic. Do not get nylon, abs, or anything fancy yet. Those are extremely hard to print for beginners and stock machines.
You can probably find a 2.2 Kg roll for $10-15. Cheap is fine for learning. Color doesn't matter.

I bought version one of this machine and even though it wasn't crazy good, I still like it and recommend it as long as you're okay with the 4 inch build space. If you're not, then get a bigger machine.

$175 is close to the typical sale price.

Ender 2 has perfect prints and bigger build volume but you have to build it (not completely). About the same price.

So from the pictures it looks like the main use of this would be printing tiny plastic cats?
