I am in the market for a printer that is step or two up from my Ender 3V2. I want it to be faster, reasonably easy to use, good customer support and $700 or less. The Ender 5 S1 is strong consideration since the price has come down to $389 at Microcenter. This price makes far more sense for this printer now that the K1 is shipping. However it sees the timing of the Ender 5 S1 release may limit its adoption, and thus community support for this printer, which these printers rely on. I have watched the video review several times. The recommended settings towards the end are helpful. Dr. Shapiro was expecting tuned profiles to help the performance of the printer, but as of this date, any custom profiles don’t seem to exist. I have searched the FB forum and there aren’t many posts on this printer. Hence my suggestion this may have limited support and adoption. I don’t have enough knowledge of slicers to do much tuning so this is a negative for this printer.
Are there profiles or support information that I have missed on this printer? I can afford a M5 or P1P, but i don’t want to overbuy for this hobby. I have been successful with the Ender 3 so staying with that brand and I can buy the E5 at my local MC are pluses. It is just too slow to get a good quality print for the next prints I want to make. Any thoughts from anyone that has this printer?
