Not quite ready for release
After several failures I found the build plate was warped, I checked the build plate on a granite countertop and it wabbled from side to side. The WiFi features only works with their mobile app, not with Photon Workshop and is only useful to monitor your prints, you still have go to the machine to load files to print. The delete function on the mobile apps deletes the file you select but only from the mobile app not from the USB stick so when you restart it the file shows up again. Another issue was every time your network assigns a new IP address to the printer you must add another profile in the mobile app, as you cannot delete or edit the previous profiles

Purchase Advice Megathread: What To Buy, Who To Buy It From, And More, In October 2021
however, im confused by the lack of specific upgrade parts for it. Do all standard CR-10 components aside from replacement bed and frame parts work for my CR-10mini? Or should I expect to handle mild modification processes and/or retrofitting to just about anything I try? The info ive gathered through hours of googling seems to go both ways and while I dont mind a little extra work to make the best of whats available, I would just rather not waste money on completely incompatible replacement/upgrade components by mistake.

The EPAX seems like the best choice, but it’s over my price range once I factor in other stuff like the curing station. The 4K printers seem to be underproduced and only one of the companies even has parts for sale. It might just be cheaper and better using a big 3d printer company to print out my stuff, but I'm not sure on their prices.

Not all Mono X printers arrive in working condition
I've owned a number of these printers for work. They are cheap enough to initially purchase, but if your printer stops working, be prepared for lengthy delays before its back up and running. I received this new printer from Amazon and its screen wasn't working. It took me 2 weeks of back and forth with AnyCubic IT before they agreed to send me another monitor and another month to receive it
