Meh! Not really bit to small to do any serious 3D printing I'm still going to wait!

It does look pretty slick, especially at that price and the threaded rod drive (I think) at four corners should ensure it's accurate. I'd want the option for metal gears on the stepper motor shaft though - they were either printed or nylon gears in the video.
The print area is a bit small, however.

I could think of quite a few uses for it, but agree it is a bit small.

Looks good to me and the price is sweet. Print area on almost any 3d printer is quite small - typically 200mm. My 'problem' with these kind of machines is what happens when something goes wrong? 3d printing tends to be a bit finickity, so when instead of a nice vase, your print looks like a blob of goo, how easy will it be for someone who bought it as a consumer item (it just works) to sort it out.
