Lots of people who build clones and various RepRap machines get Moons motors from Amazon.

I'm not even sure what that entails. I used it in a scratch built Bear Upgraded version of the Prusa.  I had to modify the firmware for my raised Z, but beyond having to do that, when I hooked it all up it just worked.  As far as I can tell it's a direct replacement for the motor Prusa uses except it has a plug for the cable instead of having it hardwired.
