This printer was recommended to me as my first 3D printer, and I couldn't be happier with it. The only complaint I have so far is that the directions for setting up the software isn't specific enough. I had to do some Googling to find the right values to get it to print downloaded files, but once I got it set up, I haven't had to mess with it since.
The manual also tells you to go download software, but the SD card included with the printer comes preloaded with the program you need (with most of the values preset).
The prints aren't anything to put a museum (quality-wise), but if you have a nail clipper and something to file with, it won't take more than ten minutes to fix the occasional imperfection.
Overall, I think this is an amazing printer for the price. After the initial bumps during setup, it's incredibly easy to use. I was expecting a lot less out of this printer, and ended up being blown away by how satisfied I was. I would absolutely recommend this as a first printer to anyone who wants to get into the hobby.
