Our favourite Cyber Monday deal on this beginner 3D printer is still live (and now it's Thursday?) so if you missed out over the weekend then now is your chance to take advantage of this excellent discount on the Anycubic Kobra 2 Neo directly from Anycubic for just $159. We've already seen deals on this printer disappear, as it was previously only $289.99 $159.99 at Amazon which has since reverted back to its standard retail price. 

Not sure if this is the printer for you? The Kobra 2 Neo is an updated version of the Anycubic Kobra 2, which is a fast and easy-to-use printer that we also recommend as the best 3D printer for beginners in our buying guide. Like the original model, it comes semi-assembled so should take less than 10 minutes to set up.

Review consensus: This is a newer version of the Anycubic Kobra 2 3D printer aimed at beginners (we gave the Kobra 2 a 4-star review, praising its Easy auto levelling and fast print speeds). We haven't been able to review this version yet, but the older model is the best example  of a simple FDM printer that we've tested, and we've been reliably informed that this is even easier to use – our sister site Tom's Hardware gave it 4 stars.
