Ive gave up warning people about buying an a8, they all seem to think its sensationalism when warned about how dodgy the heatbed is :rolleyes:

there's only so many time you can say

"its cheap for a reason"

before you start thinking

"yanno what..... if your that stupidly ignorant..... we can afford to lose you"

No need to put off the purchase, A8's are going super cheap right now. Something to do with a FIRE SALE.

The A8's BLOWING UP all over the interwebs.

They're HOT property I tells ya.



Aaaaannd... I'll get my coat.

A friend of mine has the A8 but has made loads of modifications to it, including replacing the firmware, heated bed and PSU

so basically what your saying is.... your friend USED to have a A8?

owning a A8 without the impending thrill of being slowly roasted in your sleep just isnt living the dream :rolleyes:

I wouldnt mind tbh but most of these "victims" of the A8 report how the printer caught fire while they were in bed or out of the house.... are you feckin idjuts?.... to leave even the most expensive, reliable printer unattended for extended periods during operation is just asking for a flame grilled death. :shrug:

Yet another report tho this one seems to have been made much worse by using a cardboard box as an enclosure.

Not good, simple to fix the issues that cause the problem and they are well documented now, but it's a shame ANET don't sort it themselves because this can only end in tears.
