CNC Printer aka 3D Printer?

No, engraver

2500 mW is rather high power considering there's no casing to catch any stray laser light. Elfin Safety wouldn't be impressed.

Cold because it's Gearbest. They're likely to send you Chinese or US spec plugs etc and customer services just delay then ask irrelevant questions to sicken you off

Bought a 3D printer from them last year. It did indeed come with a non-UK mains lead (EU I think), but they thoughtfully taped an adaptor to the outside of the box (with a LOT of tape!).

EDIT: If you look at the product page, you can choose US or EU lead. No option for UK though.

there seem a lot wrong with the machine - probably ok for marking paper - but the drive system seems inaccurate and unreliable for anything good (ok I have only looked at the pictures) -but I have seen better + gearbest is the worst!

Reviews are not brilliant - self assembly, poor software and lack of instructions.

​easy to swap a plug for most people buying something like this

I thought even a basic £25 printer was CNC controlled.

It's just another xxxxxx that's never bought from gearbest banggood etc but likes to **** them off because they read some bad reviews. I've been buying from China for years, never had a problem and always got the quality that I paid for. The only thing I had to complain about was getting ripped by UK vat and the courier adding a load on top just because they can.

Well said. These idiots save £20-£30 then complain about paying 79p for a plug.

Yes damned import duties and VAT, how on earth are we supposed to evade paying these criminal taxes that do nothing to help society? it's not like a courier is legally obligated to collect these taxes and failure to do so could cause them serious problems.

Your lucky they sent me a used broken drone - It had someone else's pic on the SD card that came with it.

And as u say customer service is terrible so not even worth bothering complaining.

As the mantra goes in the Fasttech ecig forums, f*** Gear Best - I just wish I had listened instead of finding out the hard way.
