XYZprinting daVinci 1.0 3D Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic way to get into 3D printing 08/22/2014

This review is from: XYZprinting daVinci 1.0 3D Printer

Pros: + Price. You get a bunch of premium features for $500
+ Build. It seems to be pretty well constructed.
+ Quality. Prints come out pretty good. Printed some HL2 characters with great quality
+ Easy to use. It's so simple. you just toss a model file into xyz ware (or your favorite slicer) and print!
+ Large build area.
+ Heated base plate

Cons: - Peripheral spools. (But you can find ways around it on the internet)
- Noisy during larger operations. (may need some lubricant)

Other Thoughts: Fantastic printer. First print had some issues, but cleaning the nozzle (done via the lcd menu) resolved all issues. Printed a HL2 headcrab with surprising quality (using xyzware! slic3r may have even better results)

I would HIGHLY recommend this printer to anyone getting in to the 3D printing hobby.

3 out of 5 eggs Works, but I wouldn't rely on it... 11/18/2013

This review is from: Diablotek UL Series PSUL775 775W ATX 12V v2.31 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: + 750W (supposedly)
+ Cheap as dirt
+ Comes with nice anti-vibrating rubber thingy.
+ TONS of connectors.

Cons: Brand is the sketchiest one on Newegg. Do not use this if you plan to have expensive parts. It should work fine for simple systems, but you really shouldn't trust this to play well with a Titan or 7990. Buy a more reputable supply for expensive setups.

Other Thoughts: It is NOT modular, but offers several connectors.

Diablotek has a very nasty rep, but this box worked just fine. I did, however, replace it for a slightly more reputable brand after reading into them a bit. It would make a good, cheap, backup power supply, but I wouldn't test its limits.

Seagate BarraCuda ST3750525AS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: + Has managed to last well over a year
+ 750GB
+ Fast enough for those on a budget.

Cons: - Only 750GB. I bought this during the flooding in Taiwan, so prices on the 1TB and 2TB were unreasonably high. Anything under 1TB is slowly becoming a little too small for someone who plays several games or downloads movies/music.

Other Thoughts: Look for a 1TB drive or higher if you plan to store alot of stuff. 750GB goes by much faster than most people realize.
