Well, they cost about $1,600 including shipping but sure. 

At the Make event recently where they tested a bunch of printers, I was told by at least one participant that while all 3D printing software sucks, the proprietary Up! and Cubify software actually sucked the least. 

People are recommending the M2 from Makergear, which has good support, but I'll point out that none of Makergear's printers are open source either though they do use the (rather shitty) reprap printing software.
