Printers like the ALUNAR 3D Desktop Printer Prusa i3 DIY High Accuracy CNC Self Assembly with its 3.5 star, rating at amazon are probably the nearest to a reasonable 3d printer kit.
If you are interested in the actual build process, then you may like to buy a kit and build it yourself. Then the above kit is the best that we have found for this purpose.
People are saying that the ALUNAR 3d Desktop Printer Prusa i3 DIY is a great finished product, but the build instructions are not very good.
It is our conclusion that unless you are actively interested in building your own machine and have engineering experience there are better alternative ready assembled machines available at Amazon.com
