    My first 3D printer, and I'm very very happy with it
    Color:Black and Green Size:EU PLUG 220V
    Pros:
    This is my first 3D printer, and after deciding I wanted to play with one, I gradually escalated my purchase decision to the Tornado (Steel frame, larger bed, 220V bed etc).
    I'm really happy with my choice - it's not quite "the finest printer out there", but don't think anything else can touch it for the price - and after a few weeks of playing with it, don't have any complaints.
    I think it's in the sweet spot where you've paid enough to ensure no detrimental shortcuts were made.

    Really well packaged - everything in foam inserts in the box.
    Semi-assembled - Took maybe 30 mins to bolt the pieces together and fire it up.
    Didn't require any adjustment other than the expected bed-levelling. All the belts came perfectly tensioned.
    Right from the start I've been getting good prints off it. They get better as your learn and fiddle with it, but even at the start haven't had anything disastrous happen (that wasn't my fault).
    Didn't come with filament, but came with SD card, knife, USB lead, spare bed, spare cable-ties, spare nozzle - good package.

    Great support - Marlin-based, so works with all software and easy to find help. Has good facebook community with active people helping out.
    Cons:
    My only semi-complaint was that they included (which was nice of them) a Euro->UK plug adaptor in the box - which if I'd used it would mean the tornado wasn't earthed (and as it's a chunk of metal that runs on mains-voltage, is not a good thing). I wasn't expecting/promised/wanting the adaptor in the first place, so had got my own lead - but feel it might be better if they just didn't include one (or gave a UK lead option).

    Tevo Tornado
    Color:Black and Green Size:EU PLUG 220V
    Pros:
    This was easy to assemble and the instructions were easy enough to follow, surprisingly sturdy, glad i went for the tornado that doesnt need the printed parts to make it so, and also appears to come a lot more assembled than others (literally attach z frame to base frame, attach bed, attach wires).
    Cons:
    there's no mention of how to attach the bed, it seems self explanatory, but you dont want to stuff it up either.

    Quick start
    Color:Black and Green Size:EU PLUG 220V
    Pros:
    Preassembled 15 minutes to finish the assembly. In all after about an hour, checking all the movable elements and fixing screws, it makes a long trip from China to arrive, I did not find any screws or defects to report, starting the first print .
    A good printer in this price range.
    Cons:
    Some small minor flaws especially at this price. Better is more expensive and sometimes much more, without being sure not to have a fault or malfunction.

    Best Beginners 3D printer
    Color:Black and Green Size:EU PLUG 220V
    Pros:
    This is the perfect beginners 3D printer. Build is firm and easy to assemble. Out of the box prints are already great. Need to print some mods, but this is a very good printer. Heats op better then the famous creality CD10.
    Cons:
    Every printers has his ups and down, but that makes it so much adventurous. No Cons

    1st 3D Printer
    Color:Black and Green Size:US PLUG 110V
    Pros:
    This is my 1st 3D printer and I am glad that I chose Tevo Tornado. The quality and price were a major factor in my decision. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase and look forward to purchase my second 3D printer from Gearbest.
    Cons:
    The only issue that I had with the Tevo Tornado was the instruction manual, it was not detailed enough. However, I had to refer to online videos to setup the printer.

  • Waker
    Great printer but not plug and play
    Color:Black and Green Size:EU PLUG 220V
    Pros:
    - easy to assemble
    - ac powered eated bed is really fast to heat
    - great quality even compared to more expensives printer
    - very hackable
    - great comunity support throught google+ group and benefit from cr10 comunity experience
    - setting Slic3r is easy
    Cons:
    - you have to tighten all the screw of preassembled part end belts, even if it apear good enough they will come loose will you'r printing!
    - huge y-axis layer shifting ( you will probably have to buy a voltmeter to tweak stepper motor voltage , really easy to do even if you'd never use a voltmeter before)
    - setting cura slicer was a pain for this printer ( with cr10 like settings it grind the top of the current print , do not stick to the build plate and extruder grind the fillament )
