I saw this a few days ago, if the drop goes for $99.99 is it a good deal at that price? What do you guys think? :roll:

its a bit on the expensive side, i would have expected to pay anything from $50-85, depending on source. on the plus side that looks like a genuine original processor card, and polulo stepper drivers not clones. however the clones work just fine. plus there is a few extras like the endstops switchs and wiring thrown in.

I got mine with the reprapdiscount smart LCD controller and 5 stepper drivers for $60 shipped off of aliexpress. It's even cheaper now than when I bought it 2 weeks ago.

I'm going to get another one to replace the printrboard for my simple tomorrow. If you buy using their mobile app on 3/25 it's $5 off $35 or $10 off $59

That looks like a damn good deal, I just bought two naked RAMPS boards with no extras for $38 to have as spares, but that deal tops that.

How long did delivery take?

Given how cheap these are, I have been thinking of just buying a kit like this and hacking up my own standalone software to create a twin heatbed controller, ie just plug two heatbeds in and two thermistors and hack up some code to allow them both to be controlled to set a uniform temperature. It would solve my big bed heating problem. Completely offline.

Delivery usually take about 10 days to California. I just received my 5th set of ramps board kit. All are working great so far.
