I saw this. How long does shipping usually take from this company?

What are the essential upgrades for this, I know I've read that $50ish worth turns this into a great printer.

I'd rather get Anycubic Mega S for $240+. Not the cheapest option but the slight addition frees you from all the hassles.

Interesting. I haven't heard of that one.

Could you pitch to us what makes this one better than the Ender 3 Pro?

I just bit on this sale, but am willing to cancel the order if it is significantly better.

Two things completely worth it, 40x40 Y rail and a meanwell PSU (namebrand). I took the magnetic build sheet as an added bonus.

This Ender 3 Pro listing states it includes a meanwell PSU.

What is the comparison of the 40x40 Y rail that the Ender 3 Pro doesn't have?

I use a mostly stock ender 3 and am happy with it. But it does require effort and tweaking. I did upgrade the springs and put on a PEI bed, but that's it.
As someone else mentioned above, this isn't the official creality store and in the 3d printing groups there is a lot of complaints on the shipping times and a lot never receiving the product. Just keep that in mind if you do order.

Mega S has touchscreen, filament runout sensor, and more stable Z and Y axes. The mainboard is probably different, but better or worse I do not know.

Both the Ender 3 Pro and Mega have good PSUs. The non-Pro Ender 3 has a crappy PSU.

The axes are more stable because the Mega S has dual Z screws instead of the single one the Ender 3 uses, and it has two separated rails for the Y axis instead of the one crappy extruded aluminum + nylon roller that Ender 3 uses.

I have two Ender 3 Pros. I've never used the Mega S, but it looks like an interesting option. I'd want to read reviews of it and see some real use comparisons before deciding between them.
