I use an Airwolf 3d HD. Had it for over two years and I love it! Can't wait to buy another at some point.

Mine started off as a Lulzbot Kittaz, but has been upgraded to a Taz 5. It has a large 298x275x250 build volume. I have consistently printed down to .08mm layer heigh with a .25mm nozzle. It's open source, which makes it much easier to upgrade and modify. I have printed in HIPS, ABS, Moldlay, Wax and PET-G.
Love this machine. Upcoming upgrades will be 12mm rods on the X axis, and changing to a 1.75mm hotend to get more granular filament feed rate to try and decrease the nozzle size and layer height.

Late to the discussion... I bought a FlashForge Creator Pro about 1-1/2 years ago. After buying 26 different spools of filament in various colors, types, etc, and dozens of hours fine tuning the machine, I've achieved great results.

I use a dial indicator to check the build platform before every print. I don't expect it to be 100% perfect all of the time, but it seems to work better than the paper method between the platform and extruder nozzle. I also changed out the ugly and barely readable LCD with a Vacuum Fluorescent Display.

That being said, it irritates me when I see people offering 3D printing services here and they produce nothing but junk. If you're going to offer the service, you should have a layer height of 0.10 mm or less and print incredibly slow for super nice results. The longest print took the machine 40 hours. It wasn't a large part, but because it ran slow and had a tiny layer height with 90% infill, the part appeared as a solid object.

Turnigy Fabrikator bought it during the Holiday sales last fall at HK. It works very well, even with the original hot end once I figured out the hot end needs active cooling rather than passive. Once I installed a fan on the hot end almost all the jamming stopped. Calibrated it once for all axis including the extruder, seems to be holding calibration well. Level the bed occasionally and it seems to do a decent job on PLA, ABS, PetG. Stock hotend can't handle the higher temps for nylon, etc. Unfortunately, HK seems to have abandoned the unit.

I have owned 9 printers at this point in time

I use a Gcreate Gmax 1.5xt+ now...
In order of printers ive had and how much I liked them. order is my favorite to worst.

1. Gmax
2. Flashforge Creator Pro
3. Muve3d
4. Makerfarm prusa i3v 12"
5. CTC Riverside SLA
6. Taz 5 - most people will find this shocking its so low, but the quality is just not up to my liking. The Flashforge is the gold standard of quality prints. I get that now out of my gcreate with a huge volume.
7. Rostock Max v2
8. Customer made rep rap.

cant remember the last.
