This is an pure okay machine.

The biggest problem is that the heatbed sucks as the solderings won't hold on with continuous moving.
Very little you can do to this besides buying one with better hole-trough solderpads.

Other cons are non-geared extruder with too little force to print even decent speed(30-40ms) and lack of print cooling fan.
But as it is a friggin 3D printer there is everything to do with that.

Very fast shipping, kinda slow processing time. 7 days in total (5 days processing) for the printer to arrive in Singapore. One of the stepper motors for the z axis was kinda wonky and kept slipping. I switched it with the x axis motor, and it works great now! Can't wait to print some cool stuff with this printer.

My previous experience with 3D printer was not as good as expected. Thereby, I wanted a good budget entry level printer that could produce excellent prints.

The Sunhokey Prusa i3 is perfect open-source hardware 3D printing solution. This high strength printer is especially designed for commercial use. It works so smoothly without any hiccups. You simply need little bit of time and few simple tools to get started with the 3D printing!

Great price. Excellent packaging (all parts accounted for and neatly contained, nothing broken). Received in 1 week! Top Job from this seller. I will definitely consider you for future purchases.

Great printer, everything fit together perfectly. Very precise laser cutting. All the screws and nuts are stainless steel, high quality.

The video are easy to follow, a few bits missing like mounting the main board and installing the Y axis belt, but all pretty obvious.

The only concern I have is the X axis linear guides are a bit loose on the rods allowing a bit of slop.

Follow the given electronic diagram for connecting everything, easy.

I leveled the X axis (before I mounted the hot end) by winding the Z drives all the way down both sides, marking the couplers with a line both sides, then winding both the Z drives back up an equal number of turns.

I leveled the bed by using a continuity meter between the hot end and the bed, adjusting all 4 corners, when it buzzed it was touching, easy.

I have since updated the firmware to allow auto bed leveling and EEPROM access.

All in all a great printer for the money especially with 2 kgs of filament and free shipping!
