I agree with everything everyone else has said above. The Prusa I3 MK2s is an out of this world printer, and is the perfect printer for someone who wants to get into 3D printing, but also wants to learn how a 3D printer works.
However, I personally went with the Anet A8, which is more hands on than the Prusa i3 MK2s and only about $160 but it does require a fair amount of upgrades that can be printed out to compete with the MK2. The Anet A8 has a MASSIVE community that provides lots of help, similar to that of the MK2 and Joe Prusa.
If you want something a lot less expensive, go with the Anet as it is an excelent printer, but otherwise the MK2 is your best bet. Good luck!!! Hope this helped.
