Hi all,

I have a Printrbot Simple Metal printer, and I've just about used up the starter pack of filament that came with it (I've been meaning to print more, I swear!).  I'm in the market to reload, but I'm having trouble finding affordable Printrbot PLA filament.

Does anyone have experience with any other generic brands?  I've seen a number of cheaper ones on Amazon.  Additionally, I know specific colors cause problems, so if you have any successes/warnings to share, I'd appreciate that.

Finally, has anyone tried to put ABS through their Printrbot yet?  Just curious.
