The day is here, I have received my email stating my Basic + Plus Air Filter is ready to ship, well the Glow Forge Basic is ready. After following all the threads I am having a crisis at this point. I am trying to determine if it is best to upgrade by Basic unit to a Pro or simply get the Basic.
As I see it the Pro has the following benefits:
6 more months of warranty
Class 4 laser = faster cutting (longer life???)
Pass through for longer cuts
Class 4 laser safety info/training
Am I missing anything?
Has anyone played with both units and can speak to the difference?
Is there anything a Pro can do that a Basic can’t beyond the length?
I get speed is a difference, but looking at Dan’s comments some additional items are coming for the Pro, additional speed being one of them, is there anything else?
Is the upgrade really worth the money?
Is there any difference in the laser tube replacement costs between the pro and the basic?
Just trying to weigh the options one last time before I answer the email even though I am jumping up and down and want my system today, I don’t want to regret in 6 months not upgrading when I could.
Thanks for any replies.
