Broke after 40 hours of use, otherwise excellent.
I had to extend them using the old ones. Once replaced, I improved the head strain relief to reduce the risk of reoccurrence by designing a strain relief plate that attaches to the deck. Now it operates smoothly and hasn't broken since. It attaches with no screws or adhesive, but slips into place and stays put

Repeatable print failure, possibly overheating driver
This is the first Creality product I've ever bought, and the last I will ever waste money on. I've had six different printers now and this has more problems than every other one combined. The repeatable failure is a massive layer shift on the X axis at the same layer, in the same direction, with the same distance every time; the bed doesn't move, I've tried adjusting the belt tension, the carriage tension, and different code from different computers, different SD cards, and different filament, but nothing has fixed this. This is the final straw and I just don't want to deal with this printer anymore

Make sure you get it set up before the return window closes...
Most of the stuff that was missing is easy enough to replace so I'm more concerned that the printer itself works as it should. Currently I'm printing the test dog and everything seems to be going good. It's pretty much just a coaster right now as only the base is done. I guess I learned my lesson about waiting so long to open stuff like this
