Recommend a 3D Printer?

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

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.
