I found this in an email from Banggood...

It looks interesting just to experiment & play with; NOT to build a CNC Router or 3D Printer.

Does anyone know anything about the content / parts, etc?

Is it too good to be true?

Just thought I'd bounce this off the Experts here...  Thank you for your comments / feedback / opinions.

It's cheap, but about right... even eBay has a slightly more expensive option, but it does come with mounting brackets too:

Thank you...

The ebay item was also just for 3 steppers / drives... plus being More expensive...

Looks like it's NOTHING really NEW...  Very cheap...  I do NOT trust Banggood... their customer service is NOT very good;  they think you are crooked and must PROVE to them having to produce pictures / Videos to prove your point...  They do not have any TRUST that you are telling them the TRUTH!

On top of that, it seems to take forever to receive their orders...

Ebay, if shipping was their normal quick shipping, would be worth a little more $.

I wonder if anyone has actually tried this stuff and had success with it...

Than you!

Have Fun,
