Is this good for someone new to 3D printing who likes to tinker?

The price is good, but the design is really bad.

I don't see how it can give you good result all over the bed. The gallow design will give wobbly line the more you are away from the stud.

Bought 2 as gifts last time they went on sale in October.

First one printed apparently printed a boat and then the head stuck itself to the print board. Now sits in the basement

Second one wouldn't rise from the print bed, instead grinding into it constantly - Tech support wasn't very helpful apparently.

I was thinking of getting one myself if the gifts worked out, however it's a hard pass.

There isn't another printer in this price range
If you really wanted to buy a printer for cheap, this is it.
However, I think you will grow out of this printer pretty quickly and want to upgrade. Not many people will buy this second hand.

My suggestion would be picking up an ender 3 pro
You would be paying double the price though

Mine has been pretty good to me. I'm glad I bought this instead of paying more for an Ender or Aquila, because I didn't end up printing all that much (Small prints maybe once or twice a month)
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

What type of things have you printed with it?

This is a terrible printer for beginners as all it will do is leave a sour taste for 3d printing.

The price is very tempting, but keep in mind this should be considered a "taste" of 3D printing. But for 75$ if you are not sure if you will like or stick to 3D printing it is pretty good.

This is for the older model but I would expect the same quality as components are largely the same:

Exactly.If your new to printing i would spend more and get something better so you enjoy getting into 3d printing.

Yup. 3d printing is not a cheap hobby. I started off with an ender 3 pro and wouldn't even recommend that to a beginner in 2022. So many advancements in the last year, a cr6 se for example is well tuned printer that requires no upgrades, little tinkering and prints excellent right out of the box.
This labist won't print proper no matter what you do with it, it doesn't even have a heated bed.

Yeah, super small print bed paired with the lack of heated bed should put this squarely in the "avoid" column.

Grabbing one of these just to see if a person is interested in 3D printing would be akin to grabbing one of those stupidly low spec'd tablets and then complaining that it's unusable due to lag. This printer will not provide the kind of positive user experience needed to get somebody interested in 3D printing.

I still haven't received my SX1 from Labists that I ordered on October 4th! But it is supposed to be on its way. They seem to run out quickly and then, like me, you will have to wait forever for it to be back in stock so order now if you want one.

75$ seems crazy cheap. Been looking to get a 3d printer but not sure which size to get...Im leaning towards the KINGROON KP3S 3.0 for a small printer or ender 3 s1 for something bigger.

What would you guys recommend for a 13 year old with a short attention span and a $150-$200 budget? I was thinking of getting this cause I'm not sure if he'll stick with it but also he's less likely to stick with it if the product just sucks. Not in a huge rush to buy but would like to get something over the next few months
