Anyone here bought one of the low cost 3D printers that are flooding the market?
I would like to have one but need advice about the one to buy.
Help!

Seconded. I am looking for one in the $199-250 range.

I am waiting for some sample output before I go any father. I shall report back.
It does .1mm and 8x8x8 and heated bed. Both PLA and ABS

Looks to be a direct knockoff of the Solidoodle design, at the same price point... but without the Solidoodle name backing it up.

WTF,
If you compare against the 4th gen Soliddoodle you have the same footprint 8x8x8 but 589 vs 999. Same min print height. Where is the Same price point on this?

I'll be following this. I'm keeping a passive eye out for a low-cost, high-res model.
Planning on making some miniatures that many things just won't handle.

DFMiller:

Having worked with the Soildoodle before, there is really no difference between the second and fourth.

Plus your machine seems to require it's own propritory software whereas Solidoodle works with the open-source and third party stuff
