'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Official Creality Ender 3 V2 Upgraded 3D Printer

One of the coolest new features for tech in recent years has been the implementation of everyday 3D printers, so you can bring the design lab straight to your home. If you've been itching to try out your own designs, you now can -- and save $96 in the process. The Official Creality Ender 3 V2 Upgraded 3D Printer dropped to only $223 as a part of the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, so you can save 30% on this 3D printer.

Featuring a self-developed silent motherboard, you can print while the young ones are sleeping in the room next door. It was designed for silent printing but also for more stable motion performance while it's in operation.

One important feature to note: this 3D printer is certified with a MeanWell Power Supply, so you can print with ease knowing that it meets the printing requirements of fast heating and long-time printing capabilities. More importantly, this power supply was built under the hood so you can safely print.

The rotary knob on the extruder makes it easy to load and feed the filament process, and you can monitor from the 4.3-inch smart screen. Plus, in the event of any interruptions, the printer will immediately start right back where it left off, so you won't have to contend with reprogramming anything.
