It's the same price at Monoprice. Although you'll need to pay for shipping (but not tax) there. Same price at Jet too, and you can throw in a 15% off coupon there. (There's a 15% off coupon for Monoprice, but the printer is exempted).

$199 seems like a normal price, but still a killer price on a 3d printer. Saddly I see A LOT of unboxings and FIRST prints, which is so NOT what I want for a 3d printer review. I need videos of several prints later, and then a list of any issues that come up. Unlike many other gadgets, you cant take 3d printers at face value, shortfalls only pop up after it has been used.

(There's a 15% off coupon for Monoprice, but the printer is exempted). Somehow, I'd never heard of jet before. Just ordered the printer for $183.59, so cheaper than Amazon (even before taxes or Monoprice themselves with shipping.)
They are awesome if you are a modder or designer. Especially if you like to work with the mini computers like raspberry, you can easily print out cases for them. I believe Ben Heck just built a hand held clam shell emulator using a raspberry, and printing the case out in a 3d printer.
Like most things, you will know if you need a 3d printer or not. It is like any other power tool really.
