UPS screwed up delivery big time. GF arrived with some damage and totally couldn’t control laser power.
New unit arrived in just a few days since reporting the issue and it is seemingly working well (I’m only a few prints in).
For comparison. Not hard to tell new vs. old.
Thanks support folk @ GF! Support is critical and hard for small companies to execute. I was sad to have to pull the support card so soon after receipt, but am a very happy customer after the interaction!
