Why I bought this printer:
- Price for a printer with two extruders could not be beat.
-- at the date I purchased, I stopped looking after I ordered
- Google groups showed some problems and company seemed to be addressing the issue as they came in a fair manner, and revising design
- Similar to makerbot replicator, other post here highlighted the differences

Why I almost didn't buy this printer
- Flashforge website is a bit of a mess seems there are two sites that link back and forth with one another
- One report of a shipping problem (how would I deal with that kind of problem being 12 timezones away)
