World's fastest Resin 3D Printer at the right price?

Could the Rocket 1 be the World's fastest Top Down Resin 3D Printer at the right price!
Here is a link to check out the Rocket 1 details on Kickstarter https://rocket-1-world-s-fastest-most.kckb.st/d7222cf0

I've had the idea of getting a resin 3D printer floating around in my head for some time but was put off by the price of such a printer. There are quite a few great resin 3D printers on the market but it looks to be the case that 'you get what you pay for!' and I don't want to spend upwards of €4,000 for a desktop resin 3D printer.

It looks that with the launch of the Rocket 1 Resin 3D Printer this price barrier is being smashed to a more reasonable €615 for an entry level Rocket 1 and €659 for the Rocket 1 Pro. These prices are the Kickstarter campaign offers but their stated MSRP of €1198 to €1598 are still reasonable when compared to equivalent Resin 3D Printers on the market.

I have been bitten on numerous occasions on Kickstarter with non delivery of product pledged for. Quite frankly with these let downs I should have been far more cautious with my due diligence. In this case the company behind the Rocket 1 appears to be a well established outfit with a very credible business track record in the 3D printer business so this helps to put my mind at rest.

I have to admit that I am no expert when it comes to 3D printers and I would greatly value the opinion of the many 3D printer experts I know we have here on the forums. Looking forward to your thoughts before I make a pledge decision. As they say.... 'once bitten, twice shy!'

I have to say that I have no experience with Resin 3D printers so far even though I have owned 1 of those over 1 year. I have several FDM 3D printers and I have been following Resin printing closely but not started yet because it is quite messy with playing resins.

I would just say that Uncle Jessy really knows what he talks about so maybe this video helps at least a little bit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhIPzHfb-Ts

Thanks for the link miikka. Uncle Jessy put the Rocket through the wringer and unearthed some
glitches. I was surprised at the real size of the device! I imagine the final product will iron out the issues raised by Jessy.
