There’s not much info there and I’ve no idea what the proprietary software might be. If you don’t like the packaged software, can you buy different CAM software to run it? Also, 98ipm isn’t fast. It’ll take hours to do 3D carvings as large as the table size so that’s something to keep in mind.

It is much lower in price than the reputable Camaster SR-23 Stinger 1 so it’s not surprising that it would have less features.

A better option than a Chinese machine would be getting one made by Carl Bruce at Speedline CNC. You’d get an affordable machine built by a reputable one-man shop that has features normally found on commercial machines (encoders, ball screws, profile rails, etc). Downside is the long lead time since he can only build so many machines at a time. He’s currently building a highly customized machine for me. When I’ve got that setup and running, I’ll be selling a 4’x8’ CNC.
