    BlackBox is a MagicBox

    Posted by Bob Leschyna on Jun 27th 2019

    Love it... I was skeptical about plug n play, but it was... Simple to wire up, and use. Red to Red, Green to Green .... Power on, and I could jog all three axis immediately in the correct direction. I will purchasing more. Highly Recommend, especially for the new user. Don't get me wrong great for the experienced as well!

    First impression

    Posted by Glenn on Jun 25th 2019

    Haven't' tried it out yet, so the 5 star is just for first impressions, appearance, assembly, functions.

    Assembly was easy, and even easier compared to the X-Controller. Have a few more features and hoping it out performs the X-Controller. Love the simpleness of using Circuit board material for the case, very nice. GREAT PRICE.

    Black box is the best

    Posted by Cor on Jun 24th 2019

    So easy and fast to setup had it assembled and switched wiring over from mach3 box in an hour just to test for review.
    My cbeam machine will actually get used now that I don’t have to run win xp for it lol.
    Great product! So glad you put the work into making an all in one modern cnc controller.
