199€ 3D printer challenge – RAMPS 1.4 and display arrived

The 3D printer challenge is coming together quite nicely - today the RAMPS 1.4 controller board and the display board arrived in the same package. RAMPS 1.4 board was nicely packaged in a cardboard box - only negative thing was the power transistor leads which were left uncut and would most probably have short-circuited the Arduino MEGA. Also the solder job looks a bit shady - well what would you expect for 9€ worth of electronics =) The display / controller board looks OK to me - it came with an adapter for RAMPS 1.4 board so connecting is a breeze.
