    Maybe because the two boards are cheaper :)
    If only one dies cheaper still.

    Feel free to jump on it, it is an MKS Base clone and a few folks have gone that route (although a Smoothie board is a better choice)

    Frankly most folks are printing, not messing with the electronics.

    Low R and M high uptime is all that matters to me. I have no want to go mucking around to make another cheap china board work when my current cheap china boards work :D

    Not trying to discourage mods either... go for it :) Some people have made some awesome mods. if you DO then document them in the MODs subforum so others can benefit :)

    Going from the RAMPS 1.4 - 1.6 to an all-in-one board with the same cheap stepper drivers is not much of an upgrade. A 32-bit board or one with TMC 21xx stepper driver chips is an upgrade, or one with both. Problem is 32-bit Marlin is still a work in progress, with lots of bugs. Other issue is changing stepper driver chips will require other firmware modifications.
