Recommended auto-leveling add-on? What about the firmware?

by cadcoke5

I don't even have my Monoprice Select v2 set-up yet, but I can easily see the benefit of self-leveling. It is surely a pain to have to check and re-level the bed every few prints.

My main concern is that these self-leveler add-ons seem to all require that new firmware be installed in the printer. I realize this is a re-branded WanHao printer, but I have also read that Monoprice has made some improvements to their version. Should I take care that the kit I purchase, and its provided firmware, is for the Monoprice version, rather than the WanHao version of this printer? Or are they really the same as far as firmware goes?

Thank you for any insight to the topic.
