Hurry! Great printer on sale
#1
Hi All,

I'm spamming my own forum here Smile. I just found this flash sale. Actually, first I found several different people saying excellent things about this printer that I had never heard of before, called the Creality3D CR-10.

Then I went looking for it, and found it on sale. It's a fairly large format filament printer. The price? $299. Build volume is 300 mm x 300 mm x 400 mm (~12 in x ~12 in x ~16 in).

The sale is only valid for the next 14 hours or so.

EDIT: Link removed, bad shipping price, see below.

Good luck. Just leave one for me.

Here's an update. A friend went through the purchase process only to find that the shipping is $105.

That's too much by far, so this isn't a good deal.

On a different site, it appears to be available for $360 including shipping:

Even at $360, it still seems like a pretty good deal for a large format printer.

Hi All,

Just wanted to mention two things. The site with the $360 price is a deal that is supposed to last three and a half more days from the time of this post.

Thing two is that I bought one Smile. It should be here in a few weeks. I'll post when I get it set up and running.

Here are some links to videos that helped sell me on the thing:

(This one is about a NEWER version [10S], but he does some comparison to the one on sale)

Good luck with GearBest. I bought a diode laser engraver from them a couple months ago, and it came DOA. The microUSB connector had been poorly soldered and broke off.

I went through the whole send them video of a busted machine routine, they admitted it was defective/DOA, then said I could return it at my own expense (with subsided China Post they pay very little for shipping, but my cost was only a couple bucks cheaper than the $80 I paid for the device). Their stated policy is they pay, when I pointed that out they offered me a choice between a $20 store credit or $20 off another one. I took the $20. I'd forgotten I'd used PayPal, taking the pittance meant I couldn't try an appeal through them. At least now I can see if my SMD soldering skills are up to snuff and try repairing it.

GB has a lot of good deals, and some great bargains, but since they won't honor their DOA/Warranty policy (many others have reported the same) you're taking a risk of receiving something that doesn't work. I won't buy anything more than a few bucks from them again...

Yeah, I looked at the company a little and knew there was some risk, which I probably should have mentioned in my posts. I'm just hopeful that these are 'close out' CR-10 models since the 'S' has been released, and that they are just remaining stock with no issues.

What's done is done, we'll see how it plays out.
