Anycubic Photon S
The Photon S- Upgrade or not?
The original Anycubic Photon is probably the most popular LCD SLA printer on the market, and for good reason. It is affordable, easy to use, and has a great support base online. This is the followup to that machine. There is great debate within the Photon "community" as to which is better- But unlik...

Elegoo Saturn
Amazing printer!...surprisingly easy to use... Wasn't impressed with Elegoo support.
This was my very first 3D printer of any kind. Prior to purchasing, I watched dozens of videos on both FDM and SLA printers with most of them recommended starting with a filament style (FDM) printer. I suppose this was due to the many complexities (and the additional work required) to get a quality ...

Ease Of Use

Anycubic Photon S
Easy set up and Amazing Prints
This product was purchased to 3d print prototypes for my job and it has been very helpful. I have had several FDM printers and they were sometimes a huge pain to use but this printer is very easy to level and start printing. Their instruction manual was pretty straight forward. I took off a star bec...

Elegoo Saturn
Elegoo hit it out of the ballpark with this machine!
WOW! This machine is nuts. Print quality do far has been A+. Super easy to set up and start printing. From unboxing to printing, maybe 10 minutes if this is your first time (unless you forgot to order resin, so go order it now lol!). Build quality is A+ I can't find any blemishes. Packaging: Despite...

Price/value Ratio

Anycubic Photon S
An Amazing Printer for the Price
The Anycubic Photon S is an impressive printer for the price. I have extensive experience with FDM (aka rigid filament) printers and the major limitation of FDM technology is its inability to print smaller delicate parts. However, for resin (mSLA in this case) printers, this task is achievable. Thes...

Elegoo Saturn
Save $95 on the Elegoo Saturn 3D printer at Amazon
The Elegoo Saturn 3D printer offers a larger build volume, speedy mono-LCD printing, sharp and precise details as well as consistent printing. This isn't the only 3D printer on offer though, the Elegoo Mars 2 Pro is discounted by $39 and is a cheaper alternative. If you're in the market for great deals (well why wouldn't you be?)

Quality Of Manufacture

Anycubic Photon S
Buyer BEWARE!
I got this in to test the first thing after taking it out of the box i sat it on the table and things were rattling inside the unit. I opened the top to check to see if anything by the resin pan was loose. Then noticed the LCD was hanging at a angle. I contacted support and they told me to open the ...

Elegoo Saturn
I really regret…. / Realmente me arrepiento ...
…not buying it sooner 😃 I’ve been 3D printing for the last 3 years but only FDM printers, until about a week ago. I was searching the web, reading articles and watching a lot of Youtube videos so that I could make an informed decision, OH BOY am I glad I did!!! Thanks to Uncle Jessy(if you don’t kn...
