It looks like a good price. Why is TD?

It's about Average sale price. If you have a few more dollars buy the pro version for the much needed upgrades.
V2 E3 is ok.

I have 2 Ender 3 Pros and I agree 100%
In fact Creality just made an announcement that moving forward all their Ender 3 Pros will include 32 bit boards.
I'm not confident this one has thermal protection.

Ridiculous price, especially if it comes with the newer 32-bit board.

I'm pretty sure it has thermal runout protection, the SainSmart Ender 3 I bought last year had it.

I have an ender 3 and it has thermal runway protection. All you need to do is flash the board with a newer version of Marlin.

Its average. But you'll want the pro version for the extra $. Best bang for your buck. Or if no $ you'll be upgrading this one very soon

If you font have a printer and can't get the pro version this is a steal if it comes with 32bit board. But that to can be upgraded. Lol

I agree.... and then do you need a CAD program, what materials, what upgrades, etc.? And then of course, you are going to want a CNC machine; one for wood and one for metal with maybe a plasma cutter and all that goes with it.... including a learning curve, a larger workshop that maybe you can build after your wife kicks you out of the house for spending too much in both time and money.... maybe there is an upside to this.

Yep. But anyone asking about if an Ender 3 non-pro is a good buy would have no idea about flashing firmware much less to even know what thermal runaway is

I'm not sure but I'm willing to bet it has the 8bit board considering the announcement was made Sept 1.
Prior to March (I believe), whether or not your stock came with thermal runaway protection or not was a hit n miss. My first Ender 3 Pro did not have it. My 2nd I'm not sure but don't care either since I have a skr e3 mini enroute to replace stock 8bit board

Depends... How you look at it.
Put it this way, if you buy a nonpro version, you'll wish you did after 2 months tops.

I don't think it is a good deal. For many spec reasons. If you can afford $156 for a non pro then you should be able to afford the $200 for a pro version.
That's just my opinion.... and I've spent many many many many hours on my Ender 3 and learning about every aspect of it.

It won't have the 32bit board. And that's probably why they're trying to get rid of their stock. Again, this isn't confirmed but if I was a bettin' man, which I am, I bet 8bit

Given an upgraded extruder, hot end and nozzle you can print from PLA to Carbon Fiber and everything in between.

Completely stock I would say just PLA and PETG... Maybe TPU WITH an upgraded nozzle and vent tent. TPU fumes are toxic when hot/printing.

Basic prices for upgrades from memory and based on Amazon.
Extruder (aluminum) ~$25
Hardened Tool Steel nozzle $8
All metal hotend (if you want to go carbon fiber and other difficult materials) $50 to $100+

Hope this helps
