Very good basic Printer

Getting it to interact with Cura program is difficult. Once I get a file into the printer memory it prints fine but that is not straight forward yet

Great printer for the price! Software does not load though.

This is a great printer!  Easy to set up, and well designed.  You do have to manually level the bed, which I'm finding is a little tricker than I would have imagined.  But for the price I can live with it.  I am new to 3d printers, so I've got some stuff to learn.  Learning about slicing software, I saw that I just needed to use the slicing software on the SD card that came with the printer.  Unfortunately, the file was corrupt.  So I downloaded Cura, which works fine.  However, Cura does not list this printer, so I'm not sure if it knows the size parameters for it.  I guess we will eventually find out!

good printer but cura was a total joke

it is the best thing that has ever happened first printer i have owned and i love it. cura just didn't print at all. i have a windows 10 and i am using the software that came pre downloaded, and it works great. and you don't have to download another shady slicer. also the overhang on it works reely well. i have to say for its price it is the best printer i have ever seen.

Great machine.

My brother and I are retired and decided we needed a hobby. We looked at a lot of machines and the mini was just right. We weren't sure that we would stick with it so we weren't interested in investing a lot of money. I love this machine and I have very few headaches from it it's on the kitchen table and it's been running for a month. I am definitely enjoying myself.

Monoprice Select Mini V2

This is my first 3D printer and its amazing! I used the setup instructions from a reviewer on Amazon and it printed perfectly. Messed a couple of prints up because I didn't have the platform leveled properly. The ONLY thing I would change if I could is that the 3D prints stick HARD to the mat. I have to use a knife to pry them loose.

My mini

We have had this printer since October and it has run continuously.  Just printing toys. It is a workhorse

One of the best Christmas gifts I ever got

In the words of a wise man: "I'm gonna make some weird s***!"

Made an excellent Christmas gift!! Great value for a starter printer!

For a beginner like me, the Monoprice Mini Select v2 is a great starter. Punches a punch in a small size! Easy to setup, I was up and running good prints in under an hour!  Just be sure to follow the directions included.  Works great over WiFi although I suggest leaving to smaller 3D files.

I enjoy my new printer

So far I have been impressed by how easy it is to use and the quality of prints that it produces are incredible for such a small machine.
