Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine So far, I have been very happy with my Christmas present sewing machine. I've made several items already and have had no problems. I also have a 50+ years Brother machine that still works very well. And I have a Brother embroidery machine. The new machine is much lighter, so easier to transport to my sewing club. My only disappointment is no back light on the window. It's very difficult, at times, to read what stitches, etc. Overall, I give it 4 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LOVED it, until... I LOVED this machine. LOVED IT. I love the look, I love the functionality. I loved it until I discovered one small but annoying problem, and one HUGE problem. The first problem is that the space between the needle and the body(?) of the sewing machine is not large enough to squeeze an entire blanket, or any larger project through, so there is a great deal of rolling or folding or squashing and tugging when stitching a large piece of material. This seems to be a standard problem for most machines, though I have no idea why it hasn't been corrected as a standard practice. The HUGE problem with this machine is that the operator cannot oil it on his/her own. It must be taken to a shop to be done, and if it is not a Brother certified shop, it voids any warrantee. The cost of having it oiled is nearly -if not equal- to the cost of the machine itself. If anyone at Brother is reading this, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't ever make a machine where the user him or herself cannot do AT LEAST the most basic maintenance, it's positively maddening, and FAR too costly. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice little machine I bought the sewing machine on a whim,didn't really need it,but the price was very good and I wanted it.It works better than I expected,the instruction were clear and the operation was GOOD.I noe use it for sewing the binding on my quilts,as the stitch regulator is clear easy to has enough stitches to make very nice decorative stitches.the bobbin winder is quick and simple to use and I love the "drop-in" feature. there's a lot to this machine for the price. would recommend to anyone,beginner or more advance sewer.which I am.have 2 very high end Brothers.this machine is light weight so I can move it around without trouble.I really do like the machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite a few stitches for a small inexpensive machine. I plan on taking it when I travel in my RV. It will be nice to have a machine with a few decorative stitches. It has a little digital screen to choose stitch, width and length. That screen is not easy to read because there is no light behind it. I haven't used it much so can't say about reliability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Basic sewing Machine We got this for a basic shop machine for our embroidery business since all we have are embroidery machines. It will serve the purpose but I like the one I have at home better. I miss the auto needle up / down features. The auto threader also is very tricky to figure out. Not at all like it shows. If you just need a basic machine this will do the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother is always a good brand Very good machine! Easy to use and carry. Sews like a pro. Have bought other brands of machines and they did not last as long as Brother machines. Brother seems to make a high quality product. Very pleased.
