£500 3d printer choice

    Hi, we have a small grant to get a pair of budget 3d printers around the £500 mark each.
    We already have 5 RepRap Fishers, DIY delta machines, that when working do produce fast and sufficiently accurate results, but their reliability is abysmal and is a full time tech job in itself to keep running.
    Looking at the reviews it looks like Flasforge machines get good ratings, but our main requirement is robustness and reliability. Have any of you had experience with these machines, or can recommend other models around this price range?

    Like I say, print quality, speed, multi filament and large build plate are not our main requirements, durability is!
