I'm very happy with this purchase. The prints are coming out consistently beautiful and I've been able to find many useful and fun items to print. Thingiverse.com has an ever growing collection of free items to print, and tinkercad.com offers an easy way to create objects and inventions on your own. The photos in this review are printed in 'standard' .2mm resolution. They have not been 'acetone smoothed', or sanded. I only removed the support material. There aren't any noticeable 'layer lines' and the level of detail is far better than I expected.

I chose this particular printer because it had the following features:

I can also say that support on this printer is GOOD. Before it even arrived, I was contacted by 'Tang' via email with a basic introduction and a PDF version of the user manual. I have engaged 'Tang' for two different issues now and all of my emails have been replied to within 24 hours.

1 - One of the leveling wing nuts for my build plate was stuck tight. I was immediately shipped a new bolt and nut.

2- I had trouble with one of the stock filament spools jamming during prints. I was immediately shipped a new spool of filament.

Great prints, great features, great support, great community, and great price.

Fantastic 3d printer.

Setup out of the box was quick, I do recommend printing the rear feed tube holder off Thingiverse - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:805717 as well as some spool holders to fit other filaments - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:714533

After dozens of prints I have yet to experience an issue. Excellent value for getting started with 3d printing!

Hard to use.. had to download software from another maker.. poor instructions.. wish I had no purchased this and had paid extra for flash forge. Not with the money for a large paper weight.

Great Printer- Amazing 3D Printing Experience 

This is a great 3D printing appliance in all aspects including its cost, build quality, print quality, printing speed and much more. This Flashforge Printer truly is an excellent tradeoff for your old printer. It produces low noise while printing providing a calm environment while you’re working on your projects. I would definitely recommend this printer for all the 3D printing enthusiasts.
