Welcome to the community! I held off for several years and only bought my first printer a couple months ago, not sure what I was waiting for!
Three of the best aspects for me:
1) It's fun for me to tune and make improvements to print quality.
2) My kids are young enough that they love to watch it and enjoy anything that I print them.
3) It's very handy to have a 3d printer at your disposal for whatever you might need to make.
Enjoy and have fun!
