This machine was so quick and simple to setup, and the output is amazing. While the 2 year part has really been terrible, they have exceeded my high expectations.
The engrave speed takes a bit of time, but the hard maple “proof grade” cut speed is SO fast, and the detail is amazing. I really am impressed with the proof grade material, I was skeptical when they first announced it, but boy does it make this easy to use.
My box was in rough shape, only 1 of the 4 white clips was still in place. The other 3 long gone and the box was smushed and had a tear/gash. The glowForge works fine. Well built and packed.
