Yes, there are many thngs you can 3D print.. however you always have to keep in your mind the limitations:
- structural strength is always lower compared to injection moulding of the same material
- dimensional tolerances are usually > +/-0.15mm or even more

I usually apply post-printing machining where needed... of course that means the model must be appropriatelly dimensioned (by 0.5mm or so on surfaces to be machined)

The printer you linked is OK (price is certainly attractive)... judging by reports from some of my friends who also use similar concept (my printer is DIY, cartesian type. Firmware is Repetier, which also support Delta geometry, which is potentially capable of moves Cartesian printer cannot do ).
