I agree on the glue point!
No printed sample is a turn off especially to see if it is what I want. This is really true for what I will classify as operational parts such as printer upgrades etc.
I don't mine fasteners as long as they are standard and easy to come by. Some of the models have you go out and get plastite screws or non-metric hardware that might be hard to find (and I'm in the US so fractional inch hardware is plentiful but what I have left over from the UM1 is metric and therefore what I have on hand). As I'm a unsophisticated gorilla, I despise plastite screws since I will inevitably strip them.
Don't mind clean up as long as it seems necessary. Some things are difficult to print with additive methods.
Don't mind lots of parts either as long as there are instructions and it seems necessary.

To me it's just the opposite: Nuts & bolts are good, glue is bad
