Make: magazine recently did a comprehensive review of 26 different 3D printers.

It chose 10 printers as Standouts:

  1. Best in shootout print quality / overall winner: Ultimaker 2
  2. Thin wallet win: Printrbot Simple Metal
  3. Most maker machine: Lulzbot Taz 4
  4. Feature packed: Replicator 5th Generation

  7. Smart software integration: Deltamaker
  8. Reliable performer: Afinia Up Plus 2 (a.k.a. Up Plus 2)
  9. Most upgradable: Ultimaker Original+

We’ve personally tested a number of these machines and have had the best overall experience with the Afinia/Up printers using ABS plastic (especially using the Zortrax filament).
