Value for money by far

Bought this printer a week ago. Packaging is very well done and all the bags are labelled that matches the assembly instructions. The build was easy with a few steps missing from the manual. Having build lots of Reprap printers and Kits it was not a problem for me, I suggest looking at a few youtube tutorials to help you.
A few things I was not happy with was the wiring of the power supply, not safe, no on of switch, wires are open. This can be rectified easily by a cover from thingevers as a first print. There is no parts cooling fan in this kit which is essential for printing PLA and PETG. Again there is salutions on thingiverse or as I did, bought a 120mm 12v case fan blowing into the bed next to the printer. On printing the extruder was missing steps which I fixed by upping the driver voltage, it still miss steps now and then but gets better. I also replaced the MKS cooling fan with a 80mm case fan to cool the extruder driver, also added a small heatsink.
All these issues can easily be fixed.
What I do like about this printer is the build plate is awsome, great wiring setup , best build tak I have come across so far from all the manufacturers in a kit.
The printer is not very fast but has excellent print quality for such a cheap printer, all thanks to the wheel system and aluminium frame.
With a few minor upgrades this can be a awesome printer.
