According to you what are the brands of filaments that are best suited to the press with a Ultimaker2?

What you always get a great print result?

The original Ultimaker brand ones are guaranteed to work perfectly. You may have noticed they are a bit pricey though.

I really like the Protoparadigm stuff, it's inexpensive, but it's Ingeo 3D850 resin, and actually 2.85mm.

Just don't get the really el-cheapo ebay stuff, that has never worked well for me. (filament breaking, discoloration in the sun, brittle prints, etc)

People have been saying great things about ColorFabb, they make a wide variety of different filaments... Again pricey though.

But honestly, there are so many filament brands out there by now, that you could easily find something cheaper that still suits your needs... Try some different ones out, choose one and stick with it.
