I've been waiting for this to release for a while. My AO-101 has been reliable as heck, so I expect similar from the (horribly named) Taz. I'm hoping that in a few months they'll release a dual-extruder version, as they've certainly got the build volume for it. Similarly, I wouldn't mind paying extra for some fan mounts to cool my PLA faster - if I'm printing at 200mm/sec, there's not much time for each layer to cool before the next one, and letting the slicer slow me down seems like a waste if the printer's capable of more.
