I have this one. It's good for the price but plan on spending your first roll of filament on printing upgrades for it. The frame is prone to vibrate during prints resulting in "wobbles" in prints so you'll want to print some braces for sure. (I said "print" a lot in this reply.)

Then you haven't been around much.

Many of these printers that run the heater control through the main board (Melzi) have this issue and it is a common recommendation to rewire using a mosfet or solid state relay.

Based on the best rated budget 3d printer on 3d hubs [3dhubs.com] if I'm not mistaken. Killer price imho. Definitely in for one, thanks.

Be careful with this one, unless you replace some of the electronics it is a huge fire hazard. Do not leave it running unattended.

Prusa i3 != Prusa i3 Clone.

We have a genuine prusa i3 mk2 at my work and it blows these clones out of the water. All in all for $150 this is a very good deal but dont expect it to match the print quality of the original

Uh, do you have a source on that? I haven't heard anything like that anywhere else.

Where do you think the main difference would be? I would imagine the print head as stepper motors/screw drives generally pretty accurate and easy to calibrate.

I would assume the print head, which could likely be upgraded at some point.
