Hey Sam what 3d printer are you using? Or recommend for a beginner?
I think there are a few considerations and I'm by no means extensive in my knowledge.
If you have the scratch, a BambuLabs with AMS is the way to go but you can gnash your teeth for a lot less.

I can say I've had luck with Creality but that I'm also pretty tech savy and very stubborn; and that Micorcenter is 15min away and they have alot of replacement Creality parts.

I think all the printers have hot-end issues. but I do think you should try for, if Creality, one with the Sprite HotEnd. Core XY is nice for print clarity at high speed but for simplicity sake you may want to stick with an ender style printer; CR-10 if you want a larger bed which is nice but not necessary.
Sovol's have gotten decent reviews...

They are all pretty much running Merlin or Klipper... They are all using the same steppers, pulleys, belts, you name it... its really just the implementation of the same garbage in most of them.

My cnc and I think a bunch of the Vorons run GRBL

Ender 3 Max Neo is what I'm using. It was a toss up between the Sovol, Ender 3 Max, and the Longer LK6.

Ender 3 S1 Pro and Ender 3 Neos have the Sprite already installed (I believe) but you can buy one on Amazon and swap it out if you buy one without the Sprite.

Sprite AND the CR Touch Auto-leveling is helpful.

That's not a bad one to start with, check and see if microcenter has them for $99 with a coupon.

thats a decent one. The $100 microcenter ones dont have the sprite.

sprite extruder upgrade is ~$100

I know nothing about my needs, just something to start messing around to learn. I have experience with blender and other 3d programs so I think I can pick up when I need to learn.
I also have experience with a blender.
