People who say they get 500mm/s on a delta (or something like that) are not actually timing it. Acceleration limits the speed you can attain in practice. Smoothie is pretty awesome from a convenience standpoint though — especially in the ability to set the stepper current in software. You can get an MKS Sbase (Smoothie clone) with DRV8825s built in for $50, so I don’t really see the advantage of using a crappy RAMPS board on top of it for the same price, especially when you lose the ability to set current in software.
