Review of the Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D Printer which can be purchased for $199 here: http://amzn.to/2anX1iz
Filament I am using (matterhackers Pro PLA): http://amzn.to/2b4ELHs

One of my biggest complaints is the gap on the hot end between the brass fitting at the end of the Bowden cable and the entrance at the top of the nozzle. Fillament will get caught on the edge of the nozzle entrance pretty regularly so you have to take the filament out and cut it at a different angle or if it is really stubborn take the fan off and guide it through. I may try to find a small tube that can fit in there to reduce the gap.
Additionally the limit switch on the Z axis is inaccurate. Three out of five times I home the axis it will be slightly different from the previous home. This leads to a lot of bed leveling. Hopefully Monoprice has fixed this in more recent batches.
Aside from those two big complaints we really do like the printer. It has a build quality that surpasses what I would expect at the price point, it is easy to use, it is really accurate (other than the z axis limit switches) and produces great prints.
