I need to receive it to supply a review. 3d printers are not like any other printer from the stand point that you can build your own if you want. For myself I wanted a printer than printed good resolution .100mm (100 micron) or better, was portable (some are large and require extensive setup) and a decent price. I took a chance on a portabee Go. at the time i purchased it was on sale for $395 ($200 less than now)
however it is a new model and it has no reviews. people had mixed experience with their reprap printer in the past so i am guarded and until i can confirm it works well I don't want to endorse it in any fashion.
3d printers overall are a mixed bag and unless you have a significant investment to make it is tough to make really positive endorsements. also realize that almost anything you can print you can purchase cheaper. For instance this dock, if you check there is at least one that runs $69 including the pogo cable here in this forum. paying 75-150 to print at a service seems counter intuitive at that point, even if it is slightly better.
