I bought an A8, knowing 100% full well it was a cheap piece of crap, to get into and learn about 3D printing. Provided you fix a few obvious issues with it (brace the front/back plates, install belt tensioners and do some electrical fixes) and keep the jerk/acceleration numbers reasonably low to compensate for the crappy frame the printer has, it works just fine and produces decent results for what I've needed it for.

This metal frame is intriguing because I can get it cut out of aluminum sheet for around ~$100 CAD locally, transfer my A8's parts to it, and have a less crappy printer for still less money spent overall than if I bought a Wanhao i3 outright.

Maybe that makes me an "anet worshipper", but I don't care.
