I did not see my printer listed on on your page, However I have the Monoprice Maker select plus which I believe is the same printer

The printer is very user friendly, it is very easy to put the filament in and out.

It is also very quiet running. I would recommend this printer to anyone especially if you are a first time buyer.

The duplicator i3 was a very cheap ready-to-print printer

It was ready to print, easy to mod and still running strong after thousands of kilometers printed. At the moment (2018) cheaper and better printers are made, but it still does the job.

Though its a "duplicator", it's still pretty dang good

Like most reviews say, this thing worked out of the box very easily. I didn't level it right at first so my bed has some scars in it, but once I did I didn't have any problems. In fact, almost any problem I had came from my own error in leveling or slicing. Within about a month though, you could start hearing that the fans were wearing out, but they still work. I would recommend getting some aftermarket fans, though I haven't even done that yet. That's how satisfied I am with the printer. Print quality is pretty dang good. I was able to print  at 0.08mm layer height miniatures with a 0.4mm stock nozzle pretty easily, though my technique has gotten better. I just recently put a 0.3mm nozzle on it and I didn't experience any clogging whatsoever. Great printer, worth the buy!

For pro or noob - you can't go wrong with this

A cheap, super easy and high quality start to my 3D printing hobby. I successfully printed ABS and PLA, straight out of the box. And although it's rated for 100microns, I pushed the stock set up successfully from 50-300 microns. The value this thing provides is ridiculous.

Great For Starters

This printer printed PLA perfectly out of the box.  I had to upgrade to an all metal hot-end to start printing TPU and PETG consistently.  For the price this printer has been great and is the perfect printer to start out with and learn on.

Good all-round printer, but keep things below 45mm/s.

Great all-round printer.

Base gets to 100°c easily, but can struggle getting above that in a non-enclosed environment. Nozzle hits 245°c fine, but 250°c is a climb. 40mm/s is an ok print speed, increase your temp 5 - 10 ° for every 3mm/s faster. Printer is prone to poor base adhesion or layer separation if print speed is too high ( over 40mm/s ).

Good reliable printer - not the fastest, but if you want speed - pay more.

A good starter printer

Great printer to start with. I have upgraded it to e3dv6 (clone) with direct titan (clone) extruder. This made the printer more reliable, with close to 100% succsess rate. It also made print quality much better. Cheap parts on ebay.
