    great printer "out of the box"
    Color:White and Black Size:EU Plug
    Absolute fantastic 3D printer, 8 screws, 3 connectors, 4 screws for bed leveling and you are done. Very easy to build up. 1st printer that is almost printable out of the box. the 1st print was the pair of oils that are on the SD card. Perfect print.
    I build up 3 different china 3D printer before, all had bin kits and I needed 5 to 6 hours to build up and a lot of tweaking and add ones to print.
    the Anycubic i3 Mega is a perfect fast stetting up printer that owns the "print out of the box" status.
    In the package is a lot of useful tools , like screwdrivers etc, a 2nd complete spare Hotend, a spare switch with mounting option for the endstops. You also find 1 kg of PLA in the box. My 1st personal print with 8,5 h over night was also absolute great.
    I would say price fits for the good quality you get.
    Perfect printer for people that starts with the 3D printing hobby and do not like to learn the hard way how to build a 3D Printer. Also great printer for everybody how wants to print out of the box.
    Next Tests will be, ABS, Wood and flex filament, but maybe the flex could be a bit difficult, because its not a direct extruder (the extruder is mounted on the frame and not above the hotend).
    Suggestion
    I haven`t found anything negative so far. May the y-axis the the hotbed drives on 2 linear rods, thats great, but in the left side is 1 linear ball-bearing and on the right side are 2, why not 2 on both sides?

    It could have been better
    Color:White and Black Size:EU Plug
    nothing to say about shipping and packaging (gearbest ok +++++), but the problem was in the printer, arrived with wiring not well connected and more serious with the nozzle with the decentralized hole, thank goodness that there was a hot end of replacement from where I then took the nozzle, 10 days later I left the power supply, I managed to restart it by changing the fan but after a few days it stopped altogether.
    I wrote to Anycubic that has a nice support group, and within 15 days a nice new power supply came from China.
    despite the initial problems are 3 months that I print without problems, the quality is excellent, I knew it was a very good printer, but I was surprised by the details of incredible details (we are talking about a € 300 printer), you have no problems adhesion because the ultrabase plate is excellent
    would I recommend it? of course.

    Awesome!
    Color:White and Black Size:EU Plug
    It took 15 mins to assemble, level and have my first print underway. The components are also very good quality and the overall assembly is very neat, the thing is built like a tank so is incredibly sturdy. No failed prints so far and they've all come out looking great. The version shipped to me was the ultrabase version (composite heat bed) so did not come with bed leveling sensor nor the bed leveling features in the software. However, manual leveling was very straightforward and i've only had to do this once so far. Bed adhesion is amazing! i've not had to use any glue sticks etc so worth the trade in bed level sensor in my opnion. Its also by far the quietest printer i've ever owned! the printer also comes with filament sensor, a spare hot end, metal spatula, tools and 1 Kg roll of filament.
    Suggestion
    Ermmm... its heavy, better have a strong desk to put it on!

    easy start, high quality outcome
    Color:White and Black Size:EU Plug
    * Easy to assemble and operate (with some technical background, of cause)
    * Very solid construction causes good quality prints.
    * Started the first print 60 minutes after my doorbell rang, well I prepared myself by some videos on the internet
    * The manual is in English. There are lots of pictures. It is very helpful and explains everything
    * Everything needed (really everything, including tools) is included in the delivered box (which has a size, and a weight!)
    * Never had a single broken print with the included black PLA filament. All printing parameters are written in the manual.
    * Less than 10 percent broken prints with Verbatim ABS, probably due to temperature variations in my room (sunshine).
    Suggestion
    * Bed levelling is tricky, but not to complicated
    * Looks like the bed is not completely flat, this does no harm in my case.
    * The filament spool holder looks good but has a rather thin axis with no bearings. It works, but there are millions of constructions for spool holders on the internet.

    Vraiment Génial. Je recommande
    Color:White and Black Size:US Plug
    Vraiment Génial je recommande.

    Packaging vraiment soigné avec tous les outils nécessaires et une bobine PLA noir.
    La structure de l\'imprimante est vraiment rigide ce qui permet à la fois d\'éviter des vibrations ou de petits déréglages.
    Le nivellement du plateau est vraiment simple et précis! (contrairement à l\'Anet A8).
    Très bonne qualité d\'impression dès la première impression.
    Possibilité de changer les températures et vitesses d\'impression au cours de l\'impression très pratique!
    Bref pour une utilisation régulière ou de longue impressions je recommande vivement!
    Suggestion
    Livraison un peu lente (commandée le 24Dec reçu le 10Janvier) mais prévue.

    L'adaptateur de la prise d'alimentation bouge beaucoup mais avec un coup de scotch fonctionne très bien.

    Amazing little machine. (International version.)
    Color:White and Black Size:EU Plug
    After six months of ownership, I can honestly say that this incredible little thing works better, quicker, and more intelligently than my daughter's Neato machine which was over twice the price. It was also nearly £100 cheaper than a Dyson vacuum that you have to push around yourself. What an outdated idea...

    I've just ordered a second one for my cleaning lady to take home. She deserves the rest. :o)

    Spare parts, including replacement motors, are available cheaply online.

    The latest firmware updates have brought the much requested "zoned cleaning" mode.

    It's my new best friend. ;o)
    Suggestion
    I only wish I had found out about these things sooner.

    There are no cons, in my opinion. Buy one, be amazed.

    -Excellent quality and sturdy metal frame.
    -Only have to screw 8 screws to setup printer, 99% pre assembled already for you.
    -User manual teaches you everything you need to know (even Cura settings etc)
    -Comes with 1kg filament (not like some other printers where you only get 3 or 5 meters)
    This is a excellent printer and probably one of the best bang for buck printers you can buy, this is my 3rd printer and i must say this is definitely one of my better ones so far! definitely recommend to others to buy
    Suggestion
    none so far

    Color:White and Black Size:US Plug
    Great printer working good, although the nozzle was clogged up Gear Best sent a new nozzle. The printer was easy to set up just as advertised. simply level the bed and your go to go.
    Prints are great they come out really good. Shipping was a little slow but that is expected from China.
    I chose this printer because of the fast setup, build other printer took almost 2 days to get running. I have printed PLA ABS and PETG with no problem. The print bed it fantastic simply let the print cool and then pop off the print, no prying or hard to get off. Would buy again from Gear Best
    Suggestion
    none

    Yeni başlayanlar için ideal bir yazıcı
    Color:White and Black Size:EU Plug
    - Hızlı ve kolay kurumu ile yeni başlayanlar için ideal bir yazıcıdır.
    - Baskı doğruluğu ve eksen kalibrasyonları çok iyi. Kurulumdan sonra hızlı ve doğru bir şekilde baskı alınabiliyor.
    - Metal şasesi ile dayanıklılık artırılmış.
    - Taşıma sırasında kalibrasyon kolay kolay bozulmuyor.
    - PowerLoss özelliği sayesinde elektrikler kesilse bile baskıya kaldığı yerden devam edebiliyor.
    - Filament sensörü sayesinde filament bittiğinde baskı bekliyor ve filamenti değiştirip baskıya devam edebiliyorsunuz.
    - Dokunmatik LCD ekran kullanım kolaylığı sağlıyor.
    - Paketleme oldukça iyi yapılmış.
    Suggestion
    - Isıtıcı tabla ABS baskısı için yeterince ısınmıyor. Tabla sıcaklığı 96 derecenin üzerine çıkmıyor.
    - Otomatik bed seviye fonksiyonu da olsa çok daha güzel olurdu. Yazıcının bir önceki modeli bu açıdan daha iyiydi.

    Mr
    Color:White and Black Size:US Plug
    Printer worked extremelly well once set up. Set up was easier than flat pack furniture as all parts are well prepared and the instructions are clear and detailed.
    Came with a roll of PLA.

    There is a bit of annoyance with the feed detector, but i can either detach it or make a new holder for it if i want.

    Ultrabase works well, and was easy to level. I have only had a problem with ABS... but i just used an ABS/Acetone slurry to paint on the base and it held perfectly well with a brim.
    Suggestion
    Problems i have encountered primarily involve my desire to switch filament in mid print. Pausing the print and resuming is annoyingly difficult and subject to problems.
    I have heard there are solutions to this, but i have not yet investigated fully... this is a minor issue though.
