What 3D printers do you recommend?

3D Printers are a fast-changing market, with new models being introduced all the time, and different printers are better for different audiences.  Sometimes there’s even growing pains when new models come out.  We recommend using a resource like Make Magazine’s annual printer review (click here for the 2014 review), and then visiting 3D printing forums, maker events, or a local 3D print shop to talk to current owners before making a decision.
