Got the Pro for $192.49 two weeks ago from Woot after tax. This may be the best deal at this moment but with the release of the V2 I think lower prices than even what I got are shortly in the future.

Got the pro from the micro center deal a little while ago. It is pretty fun to use and bed leveling isn't as hard as people make it out to be. I have printed a few things out and sometimes supports are a pain to get off your print. Also, 3d modeling isn't easy Frown.

Almost bought the V2 yesterday. Hopefully the Pro will keep going down in price. I'm holding out and going to splurge on the Ender 6.

A guy I work with went cheap with an Ender 3 Pro, and then a month later added over $150 worth of mods to address various shortcomings, and it still isn't as good as my $349 Prusa Mini right out of the box.

I don't even know how you buy $150 worth of upgrades for an ender3. The only way to get close is auto bed levelling, which isn't a shortcoming, that's just convenience

Board $40
Glass bed $20
Metal extruder arm, bed springs, capricorn tube, $25
Official bltouch $40

"As good as your Prusa" is subjective. It's a lot better at printing something 200mm long.

This has gone cheaper before, but for those who need/want it now its good to get some money off. I have the regular Ender 3. Great printer, works well right out of the box and a big community that can point you n the right direction if you want to upgrade it to make it perform even better.

Pretty easy to get 150 dollars of upgrades. You forgot change y carriage, convert to non Bowden then upgrade to all metal hot end. That should hit your 150.

Someone in another thread was saying this really isn't that good of a printer for the money nowadays... There was another one that came out last fall that's better for same price.

I just bought the ender 3 v2 from Microcenter. I could have bought the pro for 199 but I believe the extra 60 or 70 is worth it. Upgrading hardware can get pricey. I also have an old ender 2 and after over 120 in parts I am still struggling with it. If you consider the v2 look into the biqu b1 I would prefer that over the v2 but I dont want to wait for shipping.

I've spent a bit on mine but mostly in pursuit of whisper quiet operation. Upgraded board with tmc2208 steppers if I remember right ($20-$25). I guess I was lucky, mine has been fine and silent. Upgraded fans with voltage step downs for noctuas including the power supply (bought some crappy ones then went noctua so $$40-$60). I started with the regular ender 3 though and don't have some of the nicer upgrades that comes with.

It's only a couple feet away from me and is inaudible over a gaming headset and very quiet in person. Auto bed leveling would be a nice upgrade next but it's been working well with a glass or whatever bed I bought (forget the material type). That was $15-$20 I think but definitely an improvement in adhesion and uniform level.

Edit to say: Ender 3 is popular but their are plenty of printers in this price range offering many different options and upgrades as technology improves and production efficiencies bring prices down. do some research and get a printer that fits your needs: speed, silence, accuracy, convenience - these can all affect price and options.

Bought the Artillery Sidewinder X1 V4 in June and highly recommend as it has worked well. My son manually levels it perfectly. I have tweaked my printer settings for PETG (functional prints) which I use and my son uses PLA for his prints. Facebook groups have helped a lot.

The print bed is 305x305x400 which is perfect for my projects

Does your have the Z banding? It is killing me right now. Other than that, changed out the PTFE tubing, changed out the nozzle and printed a new lever and it was working fine.
