This is my first 3D printer, so I was a little apprehensive ordering from a manufacturer I'd never heard of. I will say, however, that the printer is awesome. It was delivered in a couple of days, and I had it unpacked and running within about 30 minutes of it arriving at my door. It's very nearly completely assembled. The test print was done quickly with almost no effort. I had one problem; the Y axis started stuttering and stalling. I thought it was the driver, and the seller sent a replacement set of driver boards -- even AFTER I had found the loose cable and told them it was working fine. So, no problem with after-sale support. They include a few spare parts and tools, so if you beak a limit switch or have to replace the hot end you're covered.
I did have to adjust the proximity sensor used to level the bed a little. It was putting the nozzle too close to the bed, even when I adjusted it lower than the instructions said to. All it took was maybe 1/8 turn and it now levels with the nozzle at the perfect height. I've been printing all kinds of stuff for a couple of weeks now, and I really have no complaints. Could you do that in the firmware? Maybe. Who knows? It's not like there's an actual manual for it.
Documentation is, well, honestly a little disappointing. It's very sketchy. If you're new to 3D printing as I am, do your homework. They don't tell you what type of material the build surface is, or that your PLA prints will be almost impossible to remove - until you let the build platform cool off. It would also be nice to see some sort of documentation about doing firmware updates -- I'm sure they are frequent. Mine, for example, demands that you have no more than four gcode files on the SD card -- it will not display more than that, even if you use the scroll arrows. A minor but irritating little bug, and I don't see any updates on their site, and of course no documentation about what's safe to use, how to load it, or anything of the sort. So that is where there's significant room for improvement. The printer itself, though, does a fine job, and I'm very happy with it.
First there is two reasons I took off a star. First, I loaded up the filament they give you and I discovered the first problem, the nozzle was clogged, and PLA wouldn't come out when I manually fed it. I took it apart and found it clogged with red PLA and since they gave me blue, I knew it wasn't my fault. The good news is they give you some wrenches to take it apart, and even a replacement hotend if you need it, so that is very positive.
UPDATE: So I've had this printer for a bit over a month now. I'd say my rating is still accurate. It is a good printer if your willing to adjust it a bit, but out-of-the-box, it needs some tweaks. The bottom part of my bed was not level, so it was hard to level the top part of the bed, but I bent that to fix. Then the Z level needed to be adjusted a bit depending on the material printed. It also seems to dribble a bit when moving the head more than my other printer. I added LED lighting across the top which really should have been there anyway. For the price its still a reasonable buy but I see the price has been creeping up lately. Also, the firmware definitely need some simple updates for usability, like one-touch raise head, one one touch heaters off.
The second problem was the filament empty sensor. Having this is a nice feature and the printer can resume if the filament runs out, but the sensor really doesn't mount to anything. The guide shows it connected to the spool holder but it doesn't really work there. I'll figure this out, but be advised it will take some figuring out. Not terrible, but it would have been nice if THEY figured it out for you.
A final bit of a negative is the firmware, and note I HAVE NOT UPDATED it so these issues might be fixed. The controller is color and is a touch screen which is nice, but a few options seem to be missing, like a simple way to turn off the the heaters, and a way to extrude some plastic from the panel.
Autolevel is pretty easy. You turn the thumb screws until it beeps for each corner. Fast and easy.
So for the price I'm very happy with this printer. Quality control and the instructions could be better, but overall, you can't go wrong with this printer.
