6 month User Review
Received my 2 printer kits within 2 weeks (told likely 2 months) from China, the manual has some broken English but was quite good from past experience. The only other odd part during the build was that some of the instructions where obviously used from a previous build kit or year, otherwise, their videos from the net helped with any confusion.
Couldn't get going initially due to Thermostat to tight from factory, was surprised this wasn't 1st thing they had me check (no reference to in manuals I got) when I inquired, tho to be fair, all customer service from China was quick to respond by e-mail.
Many Hictop specific replacement parts are already available for 3D print, either here at Pinshape or elsewhere on the net.
One of my printers has worked well with about 50-60 hours of build time (casual use) while using ABS. Maintenance is simple, just be sure to buy blue Locktite before you assemble if a kit.
