Hi folks I'm Lewis, I saved $600 to buy my 1st 3D printer, it's not a lot but I do believe it's enough for getting one for home-use, besides I'm not a pro, so I think it will do just fine. The thing is I need advice from you, I live in the UK and one of my friends recommended me this website , could you help me decide which one to purchase.

Before we could advise you, we would need to know what it is you intend to create.

Personally, I send my stuff out to be printed by service bureaus that spend the time and effort to make sure their (late model) gear is running at peak capability.  However, most of the stuff I make is metal jewelry.

Oh, yes... you may want to consider the 3DPrinting forum on https://www.reddit.com/.  You'll see the results (good and bad) of a lot of experimentation with a variety of printers.

I have this one. It's the 4th 3D printer I have had. So far my favorite. It has a reasonably large built platform at 330x330x400mm. The build table only moves in the Z axis which gives me better and faster prints vs the printers that move the table in the Y axis, PRUSA style designs. There is a lot to learn and can be frustrating at time ( 3D printing in general ). This printer is pretty good out of the box ( OK after you build it ). It's draw back is the firmware is closed, but works pretty well. I eventually replaced the controller and display with a DUET2 WiFI and paneldue display and haven't looked back. Lots to learn, but once you go through the growing pains, lots of things you can do.
