    If all three axes work when it's delivered you've done well, until one inevitably fails and makes the entire board junk :-(

    So far in last year I 've used 8 of these boards and none have yet had any problem all used in small machines cutting 1/2" Lexan, I did the electronics for a company that built their own machines, so either I am lucky or have a good supplier.
    Will let you know if I get a bad one.

    Multi axis driver boards do not have a good reputation on this forum. There may be some makers in China who are less attentive to quality and I am wary of the safety and reliability of electrics made in China where inferior materials have been used in manufacture. I suppose if you buy from a UK dealer with a good reputation, you have a better chance that they have sourced a good supplier, but you can never be sure. UK, German or American made electronics may be more reliable, but for amateurs like me, they are just too pricey.
