Just posted: my review of the Monoprice $499 MP Mini Deluxe 3D printer, a low-cost SLA 3D printer. It’s cheap, but also frustratingly quirky, so those who don’t want to spend hours tweaking and fiddling with their printer should avoid it.
The MP Mini Deluxe is the lowest-cost resin printer we’ve yet tested, but it feels like a missed opportunity. It’s a very fussy printer that requires a lot of tweaking and configuration to use, and printing is very hit and miss. Inexperienced users would probably try a couple of prints, then give up in disgust because of the poor software, poor manual, failed prints and general complications of the printer.
