I've owned several FDM printers including PrintrBot, Ultimaker and MakerBot. This printer blows them away with its print quality and consistency and is made of Open Source components.

Don't be fooled by its low price. The MakerBot I had cost 10X more but was made with cheap injection moulded parts that broke easily.

The Ultimaker had an extruder that jammed all the time and the PrintrBot used a non standard print head that quite often leaked and was expensive to replace.

Do yourself a favour. Buy this printer and take some time to learn how it works and how to replace parts. You will find that FDM printers are really all the same and there is no point in buying some company's proprietary technology.

I ordered the Prusa 3D printer after much deliberation. I am so happy with my decision. This Prusa printer is just awesome! I love to make creative models and toys and have joined the 3D printing arena to enhance my skills. Since this printer has arrived, I‘ve been printing with it without stopping. I just love the resolution and quality of prints it gives. This printer definitely deserves 5 stars!

This Printer is really good and for the price I am so happy with this purchase. If your just starting 3d printing like me and buying your first printer I would suggest buying this one.

If you can watch a video and copy exactly what the person does you can build this printer easily, there is nothing to it. The whole calibration of it is easy and I was printing excellent models within 10 mins of having it built.

Using meshmixer to build supports for your complex models and then slicing it with cura this printer is awesome it does exactly what I need it to do. If your looking to buy a printer then buy this one not only is it cheap it is great.

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is just because the learning curve on this printer is extremely high. There are a few parts like the Z couplers I've had to print upgrade parts because the originals had too much wobble making serious quality issues.

Cheesed-off!

This is not what I was looking for! All I wanted was a smart 3D Printer which could work efficiently. I can’t even count the number of times I have faced issues with this Prusa printer! As a fashion designer, I wanted to impress my prospective with the 3D designs.

The speed of this printer was so slow that I had almost failed in my efforts. It took me whole night to print the models.

But thanks to its printing quality, the fine layers and cuts of my model left a lasting impression on them and I was offered the contract.
