Small package BIG results

Now it's my second favorite printer i own.  I got it open box on sale,very awesome.  After some mods, it has gotten better. user friendly. Only thing it needed was a better power supply.

Despite having a small print bed, this printer is great

Out of the box the printer was very stable, nearly all metal, and ready to print immediately. The only actual "setup" was leveling the print bed, and other than that this thing is a breeze to use. Fairly high quality prints, albeit small, for a great price. The best part about the printer isn't even the printer itself; it's the community. There are numerous groups and forums available for this printer specifically, ready to help even the most clueless of noobs with absolutely any problem. The best part is the number of mods that can be easily applied to this printer, everything from bed extensions to a simple filament guide. I would recommend this printer to anyone who is thinking about getting into printing, however do to the small bed size I would recommend upgrading to something larger if you have your eye on large scale prints

Disappointed

I could never get the wireless to hook up, the machine constantly plugged up, when I contacted technical support technician I spoke to was less then helpful oh, my recommendation spend a little more money and get a better unit

Excellent entry printer

This printer does a great job it’s very easy to use. It has been very reliable.  My biggest desire would be a larger build surface.

simple and easy to use starter printer for low cost

Low cost printer who works perfect if you upgrade with own printed parts..

UGH!! I must be doing something wrong.

This was my very first printer, it was very close to being my last. It was more of a whim purchase for me and I had no practical experience. The establishment I bought it from promised customer support, not so much. That being said, Monoprice's Customer Service was incredibly lacking also. I almost quit before I got started. The one thing I do appreciate about this printer is that I learned a lot just trying to get it to run.  Even 2 1/2 years later it is my most formidable opponent out of all of my printers. But if you enjoy a challenge it works. I would honestly recommend going with a Creality Ender3 , same price points but twice the build volume.

Well, out of the Factory, the Z-Axis wobbles.

While it was nice to use at first, over time I noticed Z-banding, which made the surface look bad and had a significant impact on tolerances. I used a common mod that kinda fixed it but this is my first printer and I made mistakes, so the Z axis performed partially worse even. Plus they use a cheap plastic extruder that broke the first month in and had me upgrade to an all metal extruder. Get a Prusa Mini instead it is literally the same thing but WAY better.

its for beginners

on every road there is a start, the start for this road was rocky. stuff break (lots of stuff) i would recommend this printer to a beginner but not over a Ender 3 the Ender 3 is amazing compared to the select mini. it is good-ish but go for the Ender 3

Good printer, low price

I bought it to introduce my kids to 3d printing, lots of fun with it, impressive print quality, considering the price.  You will have to fidget with it sometimes, replacing a broken strand  but overall, very easy to use.
