euh, is it me or are there a lot of 'hightec' sounds while printing, like R2D2 is at work :) ? My wife and kid likes it but i'm not sure. Can you turn it of because i don't have the feeling its the the original sound of the motors... or am i wrong?

    Nothing to worry about really. Actually, get used to the sound, you'll notice something is wrong when the sound suddenly changes :)
