Need advice: Geeetech Prusa i3 Pro B or Creality Ender 3?

Post by jasonjacob » Wed May 08, 2019 5:25 pm

I recently bought a Prusa i3 Pro B but I’m having some problems after the assembling stage, would it be a bad idea to return it and invest 40€ more to buy a preassembled Ender 3 that should hopefully work better without me having to mess a lot with it?uc browser shareit appvn

I think this is the best thing to do, preassembled Ender 3 is better and much easier to use, you will have much less trouble.

From my point of view, the Geeetech Prusa i3 Pro B is a good value for the price. I have the Geeetech Prusa i3 Pro C (Dual Extruder) and the i3 Aluminium. The print quality is quite good. Assembly really easy, done within a few hours (we needed ~ 2 hours for the i3 Pro C).

Of course, when You pay more, you will get more. So, why not thinking about a A10 or an A20M? ;)

I'd go with a decent company Greetech parts are awful as you'll see in this forum - plus they delete critical proof of their poor manufacturing too.

the ender 3 has a long list of defects as well don't go letting fan boys tell you other wise.

I would refer you to an earlier post from ' UsherBhai '

https://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopi ... 66&t=62436

Which asks the identical question in a more than similar sentence...

I bought a Geeetech i3 pro-c and it's unusable. I've spent hours and had lots of replacement parts and still the z-axis is sticking (the original power supply that came with wasn't powerful enough to even work the heat bed). I bought the ender-3 afterwards and it's been very simple to build and get working and I can actually print.
