So I purchased this laser cutter, after a day and a half of no dispatch notification I was getting ready to send the ebay seller a message that evening and then while I was out of the office I got an email saying that a very large box had arrived for me!
Forget 2 day dispatch - 2 day postage! I had presumed it'd be a few weeks waiting for it to come from China but the eBay seller had obviously already imported them into the UK and then sold them on from there.
It arrived in a box completely covered in tape, with lots of foam, a secondary box, lots of bubblewrap and the laser cutter inside all of that.
It all seemed a bit excessive but nothing was broken and I'd take excess packaging and everything in one piece over broken parts any day.
The tube all in one piece! Although I've seen 60 and 80W tubes before, this was larger than I expected for a 40W tube.
The rear of the unit with power, fuse holder, separate grounding connection (for two pin plugged countries presumably as it links straight to the IEC ground pin), extraction hole and water cooling inlet and outlet with silicone hose (6mm ID I think).
The fan's ridiculous - hole's far too small for it.
But I was prepared for this and had ordered 2x 120 SickleFlow Coolermaster fans off ebay (they were cheap and push quite a bit of air for the noise).
The laser cutter control panel complete with some direct translation english.

Professionals can bend it with their mind...
So that's as it came, so far no issues - delivery was fast and nothing was broken. Better than I expected.
