    Is the thickness variance really 0.10mm? That's like double most other economy filaments.

    good filament, but bad spool and no usage info
    The filament prints out very well, and I like that the box has a cutout on the side to show the color. The spool doesn't fit on my maker select spool reel, why would this happen? Seems like a huge oversight. The box and sticker don't have any information for printing, so i just used the stock settings on the printer, though it would be nice to have it somewhere. Even with the packaging issues i would still recommend it

    PROS: good filament, colors look great, no clogging.

    CONS: spool doesn't fit the monoprice maker select spool holder. no usage information on package

    I got three spools of this for my Makerbot Replicator 2. MakerBot's name brand filament is $48 a Kg for 1.75mm PLA, so it was a happy day to find it on Monoprice. Each spoos arrived vacuum sealed in a super thick back with a desicant pack tossed into the spool. A sturdy cardboard box encloses everything. The free end is looped into two slots on the edge of the spool walls, so you have to break a finger nail to free it or just cut it. The filament is very springy, so it started unwinding about 10 turns as soon as it was free and got all tangled up.The spool center hole diameter is 39mm, so it doesn't fit the Replicator 2's OEM spindle which is 52mm. I used what was left of the Makerbot filament to print a 39mm spindle I downloaded from Thingiverse.com. After that was done, I was ready to test. The Monoprice filament is not as stiff as Makerbot, so it was a little more difficult to feed it through the filament guide tube. I decided to check out the specs. The Monoprice filament is 1.6mm in diameter, while Makerbot's is 1.7mm. That didn't concern me because the total weight of the material is the same. I was concerned about the grip wheel properly grabbing the filament. It had no problem grapping the filament and feeding into the extruder, but would the thinner diameter starve the extruder while printing? I printed an object that I had printed many times before with Makerbot filament. I can't tell the difference in terms of finish and texture. The Monoprice object has a couple of messed up slices. I think that's because of the 3D printed spindle I had to make not supporting the spool well enough, and so it's binding. In conclusion, Monoprice filament looks and feels cheep, but it prints just as well as name brand. I don't know yet if it's more durable. If you're using a Replicator 2 and want to hang the spool on the back, get or make a good 39mm spindle before you start to print.

    PROS: Half the price of MakerBot 1.75mm PLA Filament, good boxed packaging, sturdy fully enclosed spool, same results in final printed object as name-brand filament.

    CONS: Filament unsprings from the reel easily if you don't keep a grip on the free end, feels thin and flimsy, filament is wavy and looks like it was rolled onto the reel by an epileptic (no offense to anyone with that horrible condition). Matt black texture, not shiney smooth. Not really a con if the printed product is shiny. Could be a pro if comes out matt and that's what you want.

    Bought the printer for my 15 year old son. Do not get the printer without this extra filament or you will be disappointed.

    Great first filament
    This was the first filament that I bought with my printer. No jamming, tangles, or any other issues. Very impressed!

    Great filament
    Great filament, Haven't had any issues with it. Used to use Hatchbox but switched over as this provides similar results for a lower price.

    Excellent product
    I purchased my Maker Select through Amazon due to having gift cards from them, and I purchased two rolls of filament directly from Monoprice. The quality of the product is excellent and the shipping time (due to me living in the same region as Monoprice is located) was excellent. I cannot ask for a better buying experience and though I don't anticipate running out of filament anytime soon, I will definitely be purchasing these or other colors in the future.

    PROS: Excellent quality and shipping speed.

    CONS: None.

    Filament is Great
    This filament works flawlessly with the Monoprice 3d printer. Lots of colors to choose from. What else can I say.
