'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.

3D printers can give you the option to construct things to your imagination – and it's even better when you don't have to spend half of your monthly salary on one. Such is the case with the Monoprice Cadet 3D printer. Right now, it's discounted for $50 off the original price of $199. However, there is a special code you can use to bring down the current price from $149 to $127, saving you $72.

The 3D printer is perfect for beginners who want to learn how to work with 3D printing, and it's also great for older kids and teens who are interested in creating 3D works. Designed with educational needs in mind, it ships fully assembled, so all you have to do is plug it in and set up the Wi-Fi connection and you'll be ready to start printing. It also comes with a free mobile app so you can adjust the settings as needed, too.

One of the greatest features about this printer is that it comes with automatic leveling, so you won't have to finagle any manual leveling settings. You get a build area of 100 x 105 x 100mm with a resolution of 100 - 300 microns, allowing the perfect amount to start with small projects. You'll also get the signature Bowden setup and fast print speed – up to 150mm per second.

To get the deal, you'll have to add the already-discounted 3D printer to your cart. Use promo code EXTRAMILE15 to get an extra 15% off and save another $22 on the 3D printer. We don't know how long this deal will last, so if you're looking to buy it, we recommend you snap it up right now.
