Wow. Cheap. Even though it's plastic, that's a tempting price just for the parts.

These kits are great for the price. You can get amazing quality prints on par with printers that cost 3-4x more. You will need to buy a mosfet to prevent fires if you plan on using the heated bed. Just remember youre buying a project not a ready to go printer.

Don't buy from them. They gave me the wrong tracking number and said it's shipped, 5 days later, they changed the tracking number on the order, now it is not a valid tracking number. So it is not shipped. On top of that, I opened 2 tickets and they just put both tickets "resolved", even though they are totally not. 5 days later, still don't know my tracking number, don't know if it is shipped or not.
Buyers beware!! No joke

That sucks to hear that DCINNJ had some issues with his order. I was a little skeptical working with a new website that I had not heard of before that carries so many items, I assumed that I would be dealing with drop shipping and who knows what kind of wait time with a product that could well be coming from China. They listed US shipping right in the product info page though, and the lighting sale was down to $123.00 so I figured it was worth a shot to get into a well known 3D printer with tons of documentation and mods out there for dirt cheap.

I checked out at the very end of the night on the 28th. Order was processed quickly with my PayPal account and the printer just arrived at 2:00pm today, so basically 2.5 days! I'm on the west coast in WA, not sure where the distribution center is but I am extremely impressed with the retailer in my own experience thus far. We'll see how assembly and follow up support goes if needed. I don't bite on too many SD deals anymore since many of them are newb posts and aren't really slick, but I am really excited for this to have worked out so smoothly. Good luck to the rest of you and thanks to jbh98 for posting the deal!

Hi @lightinthebox.com If I could get this at $129 price shipped I would very likely buy it. Is there a way we could make this happen? Thanks!

Hi @lightinthebox.com

If I could get this at this sale price I would likely buy it. Any way to still get it at the $129 price including shipping?

If it was shipped Sweden Post you probably have a long road ahead. Plan on 2 months from this point + 7-10 days once it starts tracking in the US. Look for it to track at directlink.com, and then look for it to track through USPS tracking.

I feel your pain, good luck...

I agree this does not sound right, or real, LITB can't even process an order in 2.5 days.

GSXtacy99, Please provide some proof, tracking information at least, or no one will believe it.
