Is the MK2.5S -> MK2.5S+ upgrade worth it?

Is the MK2.5S -> MK2.5S+ upgrade worth it?

Are there any really noticable differences in performance with the new extruder design? If yes, what exactly are they?

RE: Is the MK2.5S -> MK2.5S+ upgrade worth it?

the mk2.5 S+ changes were mostly to make assembly easier...   not a real benefit for you I suspect... 

there is a new red filament sensor, and a new pinda which now uses 3 wires instead of the Mk2.5S pinda which uses 4 wires. 

the X axis belt tension retainer is less likely to crack the X axis left end printed part... 

If you are having problems with your filament sensor or pinda, it may be a worthwhile upgrade, if not keep your money for the next release... 

My Printers are still Mk3S.  Which has an equivalent upgrade path, but I see no benefit in changing to the latest release. at this time

Thanks! Yes, if it's mainly easier assembly, then it isn't worth it for me. I will work with my MK2.5S until maybe a MK4 gets released. 🙂

I'm in the process to upgrade my MK2s to MK2.5s but I'm interest on this new design. I already have the superpinda so I think there is only extruder part that need to be print. Do I need them all or I can reuse some from my mk2.5s upgrade?
