Good printer with a few qwerks

Does anyone know if this uses chipped filament, or can you use any old PLA?

You can get a 3D printer, use it to print a 3D printer, and then return the first printer.

Also note they have the daVinci Junior for £179
No idea which one's better.

Anyone know anything about 3D printers? Any recommendations? Thanks

I think they enable you to print things in 3D.

You're welcome.

Chipped reels only

I bought one of these (mini) from Ebuyer on the weekend and it arrived yesterday (free 5 day delivery in 2 working days - not bad)
There is a review here: youtube.com/wat…56s
It is a bit odd though!
In it I think from memory he says that the mini is slightly newer, and considers it a better printer. I would note that the junior is enclosed. This might make it quieter, and reduce fumes (although they only work with PLA filament, and I really haven't noticed any fumes yet).

So far I have managed one successful test print (after figuring out suitable settings for raft and supports). I am at work now, but this morning I set it off printing a headphone support which should clip onto the metal frame under my desk (will see when I get home).

From my basic understanding this printer is
-slower than most other ones
-locked in to XYZ's own filament, which is more expensive and limited range than others
-very easy to set up and get using
-very cheap (at this price especially)

I would suggest that it is like the Apple of the 3d printing world - it looks smart, it is easy to use, but you're locked in to proprietary tech (with associated prices) and have less control over detailed options. It therefore seems like a good start if you're interested in trying out 3d printing and have money to burn. Don't expect to make stuff to sell, but you will be able to make some interesting things, which might even have some useful function.
