    be interesting to see if the retail models are better than the beta models they've been sending out.

    People who buy this at that price thinking it's a finished product are going to get a rude awakening when they find out they have to buy/build their own filament holder (because the built-in system doesn't work). M3D still haven't sorted their software section on their site, either - it's a dropbox folder cluttered with dozens of past software versions. Nobody has any idea what software version to use.

    well now the mod-t is finally shipping and a flurry of small build volume machines are hitting the market - the micro is going to have to go some to sell.

    Hell even flashforge have brought out what looks suspiciously like a micro clone

    Yes it's more expensive and has way more features. But 5.5 inch cube build volume and exactly the same styling as the micro.

    I have not heard good things about this printer. Friend of mine was a backer and thankfully recouped his money by selling it on ebay.

    It's just far too delicate. It does work, sometimes - but everything is just hanging together by a thread. It's not robust at all and definitely not a "consumer ready" product. The software (and online software management) is a total disaster.
