Recommend a 3D Printer?

Can anyone recommend a good 3D Printer for a personal project?

Thanks

It depends on your requirements. Do you need high detail? What size of parts do you need printed? Do you care about speed? What material do you want to print with?

High detail. Speed is not important. Something I can paint afterwords as a model.

Oh, I might also add, I'm looking for company not a machine.

Thanks
Mike

What about price?

You must know that 3D printing isn't cheap, but I've had good experiences with Shapeways. They offer several different materials at different detail levels. My last project (more images here):
