I have Prusa Mini and an Ender 3. I am a big fan of my 3d printer. It has stopped me from throwing some stuff out as I have been able to recreate or design new pieces.

Tinkercad is super easy to learn.

OMG, I just posted asking about 3D printers... I still think I'm gonna spend the money and get the Prusa...I'm still afraid getting a "less then known" company as a new user, it might turn me off to 3D printing.

I took a look at the thread where you asked.
I'm shocked the Ender3 wasn't mentioned.

If you are willing to spend the money on a Prusa, they have a great reputation.

The Enders save money, and are good quality.
The support comes more from the community.
If you expect a PnP appliance, the Prusa may be more for you.
Creality is hardly "less than known" though.
Probably more Ender 3s have been sold than any other printer, and there is a reason.

I did a little research, man I'm torn... It seems if I buy the Prusa it'll take weeks to come in...but I can get the Ender 3 pro next day and sooooo much cheaper, but I guess it all comes down to if my wife wants to use it, and she's getting frustrated that she can't get it working right, it might be worth just paying a bit more and having less headaches

There is going to be some initial mechanical tweaking of the printer, which probably you are doing.
How difficult your experience seems largely based on your mechanical aptitude and ability to problem solve.
For many, it isn't much of an issue, but some struggle.
- I believe this is minimized with the Prusa

There is a learning curve to slicers, and just everyday operation of the printer.
It can't be repeated enough that this isn't an appliance.
I have no idea how your wife (and yourself) will do there.
- I doubt being a Prusa changes much of this.

Hopefully someone with Prusa experience can jump in.
I don't have any, but do have an Ender3.
I can deal with the tweaking, learning issues and save a pile of money.
