Hey Jam,

I've had a quick look at the specs and on first look doesn't seem that bad. Without actually holding the parts in my hand it's very hard to judge the quality.  From reading other reviews on acrylic frame printers these frames do flex a little so can effect your print quality.

When I'm back off my vacation I will be reviewing a JG A3 printer which is similar but all metal frame which you can buy direct from Amazon. This is a little bit more money, but when you consider the metal vs acrylic.. import tax .. even next day delivery,  then it might be worth that bit extra.  Will be reviewing soon.

Hi Jam,

I've sent an email over to Anet to see if they would like one reviewing.  After looking I can't see how they achieve CE rating in Europe with that power supply. It looks like you can see the wiring going into the base and I'm presuming little fingers could easily poke in and around there.. it might end up being a killer printer but not in a good way! You could quite easily print a cover for it mind so it's not the end of the world but something to be aware of.

I'll let you know if they respond.

Steve

Hi. Can I give you my opinion? The Anet A6 I do not know but I can say that Anet A8 is a lowcost printer and with few changes the results will be very good. I bought one for 150 euros and spent another 50 euros and the result is fantastic. You can see some unboxings and reviews. Price quality you will not have another so good.
