The Ender 2 for $99 is a good starting place if you are willing to tinker and have some basic mechanical skills. Creality has been putting 100 units up for sale each day at the $99 price https://store.creality.com/products/ender-2-pro-3d-printer-gdrs?sscid=b1k6_rh7rk&

I'm hoping that it's the Ender 3 v2 NEO, because that's what I'm aiming at.

Considering when searching creality deals you find a walmart expired one at 99 I would say.. no.

Your comment cannot be blank.

Ender 3 Pro was a royal pain. Constant tweaking and upgrading. Out of all Ender 2 Pro if you're broke and Ender S1 Pro if you have a bigger budget as they seem to have decent reviews.

If I had the money, I'd probably buy a Prusa MK3S. But those are like 850 as a kit shipped.

The Elegoo Neptune 3 Pro seems like a steal at $230. The specs look like they're somewhere between an S1 and S1 Pro.

Ender-3 V2 or Ender-3 V2 NEO? I've noticed a lot recommending the NEO before.

I bought the ender 2 last week. I haven't heard anything about it since and received no email confirmation or anything. Is this normal for this company? How long did it take to get delivered?

get the neo. comes with a metal extruded and cr touch. if youre a newbie that will help you greatly. even if you arent, for $20 those parts are normally ~45 for the creality branded stuff. i would advise against the cantilever e2 design, and spring for at least an e3v2. gives you the silent stepper drivers, and easy enough to flash new FW on it. check this page out to calibrate your new printer Smilie https://teachingtechyt.github.io/...ation.html

I bought an Ender 3 v2 and it was nothing but a nightmare. I bought a Ender 3 S1 from micro center a couple weeks ago and its been a dream in comparison. Make sure you watch YouTube videos on initial setup. Even after leveling the bed manually and then using the auto leveling, I still made a large negative adjustment to the z-axis in the settings on the printer.

I'd be comfortable buying a Neo 3D too.

Realistically, none of these, if by newbie you mean you want something that just works out of the box. The only printers I know that are close to that right now are made by Bambu and have the associated price tag premium for it. Also, comparing to similarly priced brands and models, Creality has essentially non-existent support and poor quality control regardless of how high in the line you go. I've owned an Ender and own a Bambu and am speaking from experience.

If you're willing to roll the dice on the QC of the unit and are willing to settle for likely low print quality that may or may not be solved by many hours of tinkering and modification then it more comes down to the feature set you're looking for. Supposedly the S1 series are pretty good assuming you don't get a bad one like I did.

I chose the ender 3s1 plus as a noob myself. S1 line seems easiest to use.

I'm a pretty big diy-er, tinker-er, and tech savvy. For the life of me I couldn't get this balanced or to stick to the base. After it sitting for a year I ended up giving it away and got a flash Forge. Set it and forget it. Plus, the museum in Chicago was the one that was giving demos using it anyways that got me into 3d printing.

Bought an S1 a few months ago and love it. As someone else noted, you need to watch the videos online to get it set up and printing right. Prints WILL occasionally mess up but that's just par for the course. And a PEI bed is just about a must.

S1 with PEI plate sold out? Can't find it via search and the link takes you to the non plate one.
