Having said that, I *do* like the open source bit about the Ender and the ability to use different firmware *but*, at this time, I wouldn't know the differences between the capabilities so that point is almost moot.

Looks like Amazon has the Mega S "new upgrade" for $299 and I just happen to have $200 in Amazon gift cards.

Regardless of which unit I choose, I'll probably buy from Amazon since I do have those gift cards...

You have to take a bit of those must have upgrade posts/reviews with a grain of salt. Watch the YouTube's and check out how printer behaves as it comes. Everyone geeks out later and does all sorts of mods.

Having more hobbies than time, I somehow convinced myself that printer mods were not going to be a new hobby.
