    you're being extremely negative about this.

    Buy it, if it doesn't do exactly what you want it to - modify it till it does :-)

    Never buy anything from china with the thought that you might be able to send it back.

    xD sorry about that, it's just in me, (owning a small business may have also contributed to that). I just always think of the worse case scenario. However, I don't mind failing, but yeah I do look forward to modifying it to get it working.

    been self employed for over 25 years. I understand wanting to get your money's worth.

    But trust me, time you spend worrying about buying a 3d printer, is time wasted that you could have been making stuff with it :-)

    There are two machines in my house that will be replaced asap if they die. My tassimo coffee machine and the 3d printers.
    Honestly don't know how I ever lived without either :-)

    Although if the replicator clones ever die - I'll most likely strip them for parts and make deltas from the parts. Printed some feet out for a cherry keyboard last night.
    0.1 layer height but 150mm/s speed ! did 4 feet in 20 minutes :-)

    Awesome machines !

    Oh one last thing I forgot to ask, that FLSUN printer looks like it can be controlled through PC? (I see it has that firewire port?) Cause I cannot live without Astroprint or Octoprint, just so easy!

    I am sure it can be cause of the USB port.

    Hmmm interesting, looks like it uses this kind of system to bed level:

    The side effect is you have to make sure there is nothing in nozzle or else possibly cracked up the glass bed. I also joined their facebook page, and looks like I better get some wires ready because there is (not surprisingly) Quality Control issues. I think I'll just take what aardvark said and just buy it off Aliexpress, I didn't really intend on returning it anyway, and since it uses Marlin firmware, if the auto bed doesn't work, could just always get an inductive or BLtouch and program the firmware.

    I always remove filament before levelling. Makes life easier :-)

    So you made a decision yet ?

    Oh I was gonna get it later this month, but my friend (who works in BCIT and is an electrical engineer and own a few 3D printers as his hobby) got one and I went to check it out. Yeah..... the quality control is horrible and he pointed out all the safety hazards (14 AWG wire for a heated bed really?) on the wiring. So for the money, I rather get the HE 3D K200 like you recommended or the ANycubic kossel one.
