I am a librarian at my local public high school.  This printer was given to me by an administrator, therefore, I cannot comment on the value of this machine.  It has been easy to operate with minimal training.  Prior to receiving this printer in 2018 I had no experience with 3d printing.  It prints well with ABS and PLA filament.

In March 2020 I was allowed to bring 3 of these printers to my house while the school went to remote learning only.  At that time I used them to make PPE for healthcare professionals.  As long as I had filament, I had these machines running continually night and day to help the cause.  During this time I had few problems.  This included clogs from some sketchy donated filament that had been opened and not stored properly, a filament sensor that needed to be replaced and a flexible cable between the print head and the circuit board.  Tech support was outstanding in helping to diagnose the issues while they were also working from home.  I was able to replace the parts with the instructions they provided.  When I returned to school in September 2020 my makerspace lab expanded to include four H800+ and a new Afinia H+1.  The history of my go to H800 indicates that 31 kg of filament has gone through it.  I have had no issues with it and it continues to print perfectly.

The H800 is a workhorse and tech support is excellent.

I love 3d printing and the Afinia H800 got me here

This printer was loaned to me about 2 Months ago. It has been running non stop. I am amazed at what I can do with it. I am surprised with running  these stepper motor so hot that they keep running without issue. I have had a lot of failed prints to start off because of lack of experience. Mostly due to part lifting off the bed and restricting flow which causes the extruder to strip the filament. I have strictly used ABS because most of my work needed strength and high temperature durability. Although I am looking at other printers to purchase I would recommend the Afinia H800 and may purchase one in the future. The software is very easy to use. It was upgraded twice since I got the printer and both times it was a pleasant surprise. I think the main issue I am not focused on buying this now is the need to carry a laptop back and forth to the garage to download new prints. I think  this printer needs a flash drive option.

Very easy to use

Our H800 is used in an educational institution for student/faculty projects. It is very easy to operate with minimal training. Print quality is excellent and we have had no problems with operation.

The Easiest Printer Ive Ever Used

Of all the 3D printers I have used in the past, the afinia is something absolutely unique. With other 3D printers, options of printing are omitted in order to simplify the experience and streamline production, combined with slicing programs that are either unoptimized or are meant for a specific material. The Afinia series in question always has a flat build plate, and height adjustment is done automatically via a touch sensor. Option to reprint without resending the file is handy if initial layers of the print have issues as well as making sever versions of the same print. Overall, a clean user experience with a simple design that reduces the pain and agony that is leveling and adjusting the height of a 3D printer.

From a newbie this was a good choice

I have never worked with a 3D printer before I got the Afinia H800.  I took some time to read the manual { new experience before working with something} and then followed the steps.  I got a few balls of fishing string results first few times but gradually got it dialed in and up and running.  Now I can print things quickly with ABS but not had any PLA turn out.  I think I need to adjust the nozzle temp but not sure yet how to do that.  There is a setting in the OEM software for it but so far nothing has worked in PLA.
