Pros Very detailed prints, dual rails for low Z wobbleCompact form factor, excellent prints for FFF, easy to useGreat value, large build areaGreat value, braces minimize Z-axis wobble, Large build envelopeGreat budget buy, solid printing capabilities, decent print quality
Cons Harder to use, small build areaSupport could be better, a bit more assembly than other printersNonexistent support, little harder to usePrint quality could be better, limited customer supportFinicky with ABS, can require a bit of tinkering
Bottom Line The Photon S can be a pain to operate but did produce some exceptional prints when it wasn’t misbehavingThis printer is a highly capable machine that offers excellent print quality at much more affordable price than the top-tier modelsOffering solid print quality and a large build area at a great price, this is a great choice if you are shopping on a budgetWhen you look at performance per dollar, the Creality 3D CR-10 V2 is a good optionEarning the Best Buy Award, the Creality Ender 3 Pro is our favorite for those shopping on tighter budgets
