Ender 3 v2 from Creality only cost ~ £180
Purchased mine 4 weeks ago, delivery was ~ 1 week to the UK. Prints appear to be fine for what I need.
You can get the ‘slicer’ software for free. Some people use ‘Cura’ but I’ve been using PrusaSlicer (which is also free).
If you get really keen you can always buy a Prusa in the future for ~£1000 !!!
