I have not really been all that impressed with this type of 3D printing either, but this is looking good. Still, the speed of producing parts with this method is painfully slow. As you make the resolution better, it takes more layers, therefore it takes even longer to print. It does open the doors to parts that would be impossible to produce by subtractive methods though. I've seen some incredible stuff at the Maker Faire that was 3D printed.
My ultimate shop would have a 48"x24" laser, 96"x48" CNC and a 3D printer. I'll still keep 3D printer at the bottom of the list for now.
