This is the first printer I have owned and I still have it today.

I love this printer, In the beginning it got me very frustrated, but the printer wasn’t the issue.  You need to take the time to calibrate it and once you do this printer turns outs some great quality prints.

Not that it needs any upgrades but I  would recommend the Light Kit and a PEI Bed Sheet.
