I've been playing around with 3D printers for about 6 years and they have certainly come a long way! My original printer was a DIY one from kit parts and took a lot of fiddling to get it to print correctly.
Earlier this year, I bought a Creality Ender 5. Mostly pre-assembled , printed near perfect out of the box - i.e. no tuning require.
I've since done some modifications (mostly 3D printed parts) and upgraded the stepper drivers. Quality is excellent and with the driver update, almost silent.

It's current job is printing stepper motor mounts for my Vixen GP mount so I can install the OnStep controller. I've had to make a few changes from the only stepper mounts I could find that suit an SP mount but all that each test takes, is a bit of time and a few metres of extrusion.
