3D Printer - What To Look For?

So I've been doing a bit of looking around, as a 3D printer might be on the cards for purchase soon.

To save myself a many hundred dollar mistake... can anyone recommend what to look for in a printer? Kit construction is fine, but I'm also seeing some $600 - $1000 dollar ones on eBay that look pretty good for a first time printer.

Main applications would be small custom parts for robotics.

But I am completely new to this kind of stuff, electronics, I do have some experience in building r/c helicopters, and I am a software engineer. Here is what I would like the cart to do:
