Sorry as i am new to this and not sure what section this belongs in so please move if it belongs somewhere else.

I just want to know if this is a good deal

Prusa i2
Build volume is 7"x7"x5".
Arduino Mega computer
RAMPS 1.4 controller.
Medical grade power supply rated at 1200W.
Printer has a heated bed
more upgrades(trying to get exactly what upgrades have been done to it)

This printer is being sold to me for $400. It comes with about 6 rolls of filament from protoparadigm. Also comes with lots of spare parts. Would you pay $400 for this package?

Some are going to tell you how you could get it cheaper, but it sounds like a fair deal especially considering it's 1 already assembled and 2 comes with plenty of filament.

What material is the frame? That can matter.

That power supply us overkill by the way.

Yea icknow the power supply is overkill. Idk why he went with that but it is included with the printer. I will ask him what updates have been done and also what material the frame is

What hotend? If it is a chinese clone, then you should expect to buy a new hotend.

I think with the 6 rolls of filament, spare parts, etc., it's a solid deal. The filament alone is worth ~$100-150. Later down the road, you could easily print parts for a different model printer if you wanted to upgrade.
