I’m thinking to buy the Mini+, but should I wait for Black Friday

I want to get a 3D printer that requires less tinkering, from the review I saw, Prusa mini+ is a pretty good choice. But as Black Friday coming soon, I don’t know if I should hold off until then. Would Prusa have any Black Friday sale?

Previous Black Fridays

Take a look at the kinds of discounts there were on previous Black Fridays, that should help you make a decision:

Thank you

That looks good. I was hopping to have discount on the machine, but the free shipping itself is worth $70 for me. I think I will wait for a month to see.

My first post here. I ordered a Mini last night, not even thinking of Black Friday. The good news is I am ahead of the BF wave. The bad news is I paid for shipping. It is what it is and I love reading thru all the posts here.

 

Cheers,

Dave

...I ordered a Mini last night...

Congrats for your purchase! Yes, sometimes we just don't have the patience to wait 🤩 .
The only advice: be patient when assembling your new Mini -it's not a race.

I looked around a bit before placing my order last month. I saw no reason to wait, so now my order week shipping window is open and I'm obsessively checking email for a ship notification. This has to be the worst part of the wait.

Now the waiting

Just got a notification from FedEx, so mine is beginning its journey here. That's actually almost spot on their estimate on the website and I added 1kg of filament and the runout sensor. This is going to be as bad as lurking on vesseltracker for Kickstarter pledges...

I am so impressed with my new machine. Here are my first two flawless prints:

Looks good! I should be pushing plastic soon too. I just have the extruder, hotend, and bed left to assemble.

We must be brothers of another mother -:)

First time here; purchased mine a week after you did. Also on the "watch"; but I wasn't to tied-up about the shipping. Even though it is some good money, if I waited 'till BF I was assured not to see the printer until after the new year.

And the beauty just came today in the awesome carriage, also known as the FedEx truck

Yeah, all black. There are certain compromises one has to make in order to get toys into the house. 😀

I see you became happy owner of new Mini+... Congrats again. And black Mini is not a compromise, it's a selective choice! I purchased it in black, because in my eyes it just looks better 😎 .

I love that. Black certainly looks pretty sharp.

I have one in all black. It looks great under the LED lighting in my Lack enclosure.
