The Ultimaker 2 3D Printer

Ultimaker has long been regarded as one of the fastest and most reliable personal 3D printers. But it's been quite a while since it was released. Now the company has announced a new version: Ultimaker 2. 
 
The new unit is not simply more attractive with its shiny case: 
 
Every part has been redesigned to create one of the highest performing 3D printer available on the market, but also a very reliable one.
 
Other specs: 
 
  • Expanded print volume to a large 230 x 225 x 205 mm
  • Heated print bed
  • Super quiet - only 49dB
  • 0.2mm accuracy
  • Print speeds up to 300mm/s
  • SD card slot to accept print jobs; also connects via WiFi
  • OLED display
  • Single extruder
  • Generic plastic filament capability
 
The Ultimaker 2 remains an open source solution, although it is sold in assembled form at a price of €1.895,00 (USD$2562). We suspect they've priced the unit to directly compete against the MakerBot Replicator 2, which retails for USD$2199 (or USD$2549 when you include their support package). 
 
It's a high price compared to many of the 3D printer kit solutions, which tend to be under USD$1000, but for a quality assembled, solution, why not?
