Now that's a deal! Highly recommend this for your first printer if you're willing to put in some work.

this is the best 3d printer for a beginner if you are the tinkering type, you will learn in the process of tweaking it to get the best print. you will probably get good prints out of the box but will have to make adjustments to make it perfect.

Also, there is a Version 2 of it which launched a couple months back with an improved motherboard, bed and tension knobs.

depends on what you are trying to print, elegoo use resin, which produce smoother finish. This one is FDM which uses filament, layers will be visible.

Resin prints need post processing and produces toxic fumes. FDM does not not produce it unless you are using ABS.

ender 3 also has a bigger build area as compared to elegoo.

The Pro doesn't include bltouch and glass bed. It has a better magnetic bed though, and is more sturdy. It has 40x40 aluminum extrusion and upgraded PSU. The Pro is probably worth it at $204.

why people see it as a entry-level basic machine beacuse it's cheap, and durable..also the mechanism is easy to understand,,and easy for trouble shooting too. It has alot room for upgrade in the future. $165 price is like the lowest u can find in market., especially the idea is from official store.

The Creality printers come with slicing software and a few preloaded prints on the microSD card. They usually come with a small roll of PLA filament, snips, scraper, and some Allen keys to get you started.
The Ender series are good machines and have a big following. You'll have plenty of growing room and may never outgrow it.
YouTube and Reddit helped me get started, and upgrade as I go along.
You'll probably want to get a different color filament. I'd stick with PLA, or any variant of it, for now. You may look into getting a different slicer program (they're usually free), Cura is pretty popular, Slicer from Prusa is also popular.

I suggest that you learn the basics from the stock printer for now, then work your way on doing upgrades. You will know what upgrades you will need after you understand how your printer works.

Its extruder(stock - single gear), for example, can be a hit or miss, sometimes it works fine or just need some tuning but there are instances when you need to replace it with something better (dual gear, or BMG).

if it is not broken dont fix it.
