Some great info in Lizard Spock's last deal so have done a copy & paste. Thanks Lizard Spock & ca1ypso

Helpful comment by ca1ypso comparing the 3 Models (Ender 3, Ender 3 Pro, Ender 3 V2):
The only major differences between the V1 Ender 3 and Ender 3 Pro are that the pro includes:

  • A magnetic bed (meaning that it's 'easier' to remove prints.)
  • A meanwell power supply (this is a name brand power supply which usually means it 'can be' safer, and is quieter - compared to the regular generic unit)

The Ender 3 V2 was essentially an update that put all the community modifications people made to the V1 and had them come stock, from the factory. This is mostly a time saving/ease of use factor and includes upgrades such as;

A 32bit mainboard that runs quieter and more efficiently compared to the previous 8bit mainboard. This also comes with other benefits such as the ability to update firmware easier
A 'fancy' colour screen
A glass bed
Belt tensioners
Overall, this means that the Ender 3 V2 is usually a more enjoyable out of box experience. However, if you're someone that dosen't mind tinkering (upgrading your printer is half the hobby) then I would say that the V1 is a better option. This is because it is cheaper, and you can buy the upgrades as you see fit. I've included some examples below.

SKR Mini E3 (A 32bit plug-in replacement mainboard that is arguably better than the one in the V2)
You can buy the 'official' glassbed seperately yourself
Printable upgrades (Tool box, belt tensioners, extruder knob etc)
BL-Touch (A probe that you can install and it will level your bed for you, instead of you doing it manually every print)

    You're welcome 😊 (Thank you for the acknowledgement)
    By the way, I am absolutely loving my my Ender3 Pro. I am currently printing a 1.6m Trex Skeleton.

    Here is the skull

    And here is what I've printed so far

          Oh thought it was a silk. Looks pretty glossy

  •  

    Also an important note - a lot of the current stock of the base Ender 3 include the 32bit main board on v4.2.2 which helps a bit for other mods!

  •  

    I bought the 3 pro recently came with 32 bit main board and silent drivers the z axis has a bit of slop but it is manageable dual z steppers are on my upgrade list. Great first printer. I just bought a ender 5 that has the old mainboard and non silent drivers. I consider this a downgrade of the ender3 Pro.

    •  

      Yeah after swapping my non-silent Ender 3 board for a BTT SKR Mini, I could not go back to a non-silent one.

    FYI only 7 in stock (not enough for its own post) but it's on ebay for $215
