Definitely not for beginners, (even though I was) because much of the accuracy and reliability comes down to how well the user assembles it. The components that come with it are good, not excellent and certainly not the cheapest components. Easy to upgrade and improve in true RepRap style.

I was bit sceptic before buying it. First surprise was when it arrived exactly 3 days after it was shipped from china, everything was well packaged, instructions lacked a bit but there's tons of materials from community to help You build it, some calibration is required especially E-steps Took about 6 hours to build and another hour to get everything checked and calibrated, first print was successful, never had failed print due to printer issues, only ones that were my mistake, overall really happy

Good to learn more about 3D printing. Big build volume.

it's got the parts you need the community or experience in building 3D printers and you learn software, mechanical, electrical skills while at it.
