A nice little machine, but I'm not sure it's worth nearly twice what you'd pay for the low-cost standard-bearer Ender 3.
I like how I see the comments on face shields, because in my shop we have 4 printers working full time on em. We are a welding shop turned additive manufacturing plant now.
Probably a fair assessment, but I'll add on to it... If you're considering buying a 3d printer but you're worried you'll have to tinker a lot to get it working, then chances are the hobby isn't for you. 3d printing requires an engineering mentality... Precise measurements, knowledge of fdm process, cad drawing, etc. I don't see the point of taking up valuable space in your house if all you want to do is print baby yodas and knick knacks...

Edit: "you" meaning the generic reader, not you specifically.

I've been printing adaptors for snorkel masks for me and my colleagues. It adapts a viral filter from a vent (my hospital has plenty, and I think others do as well) in place of the snorkel. There are plenty of cad files floating around that you can use. In Spain they considered not selling snorkel masks to the public so they could use them for PPE. I don't know about this printer, but I use an ender 3 (paid $175) with standard mods that does a fine job. Each adaptor takes about 3 hours to print however

Not the clear part. You can print the headband that the clear part attaches to. Just use a report cover as the clear part of the mask.

I think this one would be more comparable to the pro since the lower tier Ender 3 is missing some kind of critical things like the updated (safe) power supply and is generally within pricing difference to where a pro makes more sense. That being said, I'm with you that the Ender 3 Pro is going to be as good or better than this once you put a little work into it. Upgrade to an aluminum extruder, upgrade to capricorn tubing, upgrade the bed springs (kit with all 3 of those things costs ~15-20 bucks), and with the extra money you could upgrade to a silent stepper board or get an auto-bed leveler. Plus most of the new Ender 3's come with thermal runaway enabled by default.

Nice machine, but that's a really small bed size. The Ender 3 Pro, though perhaps a bit more hands-on to get optimized, comes with some solid mid-tier features at a lower price point.

I've been thinking about grabbing an Ender 3 when it goes on sale next. But as you mentioned, there are different models and upgrades. I'm curious if you can break down the differences and offer a good price to look for.
Thanks

The newer Ender 3s are better, that's for sure, but the "required" upgrades can seem a bit tedious to those new to the hobby. Adding a silent board though is so very nice on this machine.

If only it were available. Lead time is enormous on these.

I agree the Ender 3 is a better deal (I own one), BUT it's a very hands-on printer that requires a lot of tinkering and learning to get going. I see a LOT of people on the subreddit frustrated because they can't get their printer working. Monoprice printers generally work out of the box with minimal setup. And if they don't, Monoprice has decent warranty support and returns. That's what you're paying for here.
