    tevo tarantula 3D printer
    This 3D printer is very good for i'ts price.Advantages : First this 3D printer reaches the hight temperatures fast and easily.It's extruder is awesome and you can use a wide variety of fillaments!!! The 3D prints that i have already make are very good and have very good quality.One more advantage is that when it prints something it quiet enough that i can print things in any time i want without making a lot of noise. Disadvantages : The maine disadvantage is tha the extruder sometimes gets stuck with filament and it doesn't print if it stucks,so you have to make the print again.(if you make slower the motor of the extruder it's ok) The second disadvantage is tha it needs some extra upgrades.(ordering 2 extra fans and printing some piaces for more strength) In conclusion if you are new in 3D printing and have a budget at 200$ this is the best choise for you!!!!!If you are intrested more about 3D printers just wait a little bit and collect more monay so you can buy a better but more expensive 3D printer

    Good printer
    The printer is good as long as you take your time to assemble and tweak it. Also the price is low and the shipping is fast if you choose priority shipping (the courier will bring it at your door). It comes with two rolls of filament of 0.25kg each (the colors and material are sent randomly but you'll likely get PLA). You can find a lot of videos on how to assemble, calibrate or change the firmware of the printer. Also there is an official facebook group from where you can get a lot of help. Overall if you're on a budget and you don't mind tweaking or printing some parts you can't go wrong with Tevo Tarantula. Also there are some cons that I have mentioned in this review
    Suggestion
    First of all: Get rid of the included SD Card! (See the pictures) - It will corrupt each and every file written on it. Buy a lot of M4/M5 washers otherwise you risk to crack the acrylic! Take your time to assemble it and tweak it! Take your time to learn how the eccentric nuts works! Buy ferrules! You need to buy some plugs, washers, fans... so if you're on a budget you will have to include the cost of them.

    Better than a friends 3d printer
    Because of the price and the quality ofthe print compared with other printers What a i disliked the most was that the lcd that came with it was not working properly, but got one easily and that was it, what i like the most is the printing quality. The advantage is the price, although you will have to work on the printer to print at high speed with reasonable quality. The one thing I recomend is that if you are going to buy this printer, you are willing to read manuals, do some research and spend some more on add ons, but I believe is worth it. This is a printer for engineers and technitians,
    Suggestion
    Just for some people it might be a burden that it has to be assembled

    Great product for best price!
    It came earlier then expected (almost 1 month) and through a private courier rather then the postal customs so i had no difficulties with receiving the package (in Romania the customs officers are a real pain in the a...). Packing was incredibly organized and everything labeled properly. Quality is great especially for this price. It came with 2 spools of PLA filament of 0.2KG each and it's somehow gradient (i'm not sure about this term) and it changes the color as you use more of it (it can be seen in the photos down below).
    Suggestion
    Terrible manual that skips important steps and confuses you rather then help you go easily through the building process. The acrylic bed carriage has the large holes rather larger then it should and i had to watch a step by step tutorial to see how to properly fix the calibration of the wheels because it would wooble terribly. No spatula to remove item from print bed. No grease for the rod. Stock firmware MUST be upgraded (i downloaded the Tevo-Tarantula-Marlin-1.1-RC7-BugFix--master after googling solutions for firmware upgrade).

    It's my second DIY printer and I was surprised this time that all parts were prepared in their bags for each step. Installation was very easy, that's 2017 updated version and both, old and new Tevo Titan extruders were in the package. Of course two smokey filament spools were inside. I can't stop smiling watching how beautiful prints come from this printer. Great price, can upgrade it with longer aluminium profiles....what can I say more. Thank you for fast shipping and great product.

    Great packaging, nothing to add to improve. Realli nice DIY set.

    Very nice quality for the money
    Very good entry point into world of 3D printing. It´s my first 3D printer and after assembly I´m even glad I chosen this cheaper diy kit than pre-assembled one . If you have no experience in mechanics you can expect about 8 hours of build time + some calibration works but you will also learn a lot along the way to completion. Time will tell if I keep up with this hobby but currently I consider myself hooked
    Suggestion
    I dont really have any negatives to say other than that Z axis stepper motor acrylic holder broke after I tried to lubricate threaded rod but that was completely my fault. Just don´t treat this printer as foolproof product and you will be fine. Anyway I´am printing replacement as original part still somehow holds some integrity. There were some T-nuts which had uncentered threadings and one without threading at all but that isnt much of a deal and can be replaced very cheaply
