Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is our second brother embrodiery machine. The PRS100 machine produces a very good design. I have few problems setting up the designs. The more I use the machine the more I learn about it. We purchased our machine from Tops, in Sarasota, Fla. And when problems arise I call or male the trip to Florida for help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed.. I was very anxious to receive the PRS100 to expand my business only to be very disappointed.. The machine was very easy to setup and the thread tensions were already set, but I had EXTREME inconsistencies when I would embroider. My underlay stitches would always show no matter what, but then there would be that one hat, or jacket or whatever that looked perfect. I tried my luck with customer services, but all 3 of the representatives that I talked to literally read me the manual word for word and called that customer services.. I'm really disappointed and I do NOT recommend this machine to anyone and now I'm out thousands of dollars..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but needs are larger embroidery field... If this came with the ability to go wider than 8" and the needle threader hook didn't bend so often this would be a GREAT machine. The needle threader hook has given me fits since the first week I got this machine - for some reason it bends making the needle threader unusable. I was able to bend it back with a lot of patience and tweezers the first few times it happened (which literally took 30-45 each time to fix) but now it won't go back and I'm stuck manually threading the needle each time (which isn't fun on a single needle machine). Saw online other people having the same problem. I do think for the price it should have an embroidery field larger than 8x8 - I thought it would make a big difference over my previous 5x7 machine, but once I started using it I realized it really isn't that much bigger at all (and costs a TON more).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Machine I would like to start out by saying most issues I have had with the Brother PRS100 have been user error and not the machine. I purchased this machine 12 months ago. I really wanted to use it before posting a review. I do like the machine and it embroideries well. Threading the machine is really super easy once you learn how. I absolutely agree that a light is needed where the thread comes down and has to go through the hole in the cover (at the bottom). The machine is dark blue and when working with a darker thread it is aggravating (this is why I gave it 4 stars). When using the automatic needle threader... practice makes perfect :) You do have to get the thread in position correctly for it to work. I think where most users have problems, is at the needle bar thread guide. It is a very tight area, not much room. However, it comes with a needle changing tool (threader) for this area and it really makes a difference. I had to use it every time in the beginning, but now I can thread it quickly and without the tool. When changing thread color, I do typically tie the new color of thread to the old and pull it through. Don't pull it through the needle as the knot will bend the needle. The touch screen is very user friendly. There are many options to choose from and it is easy to understand and operate. I do not have to refer to the book very often. I love that I have the choice of a usb stick or direct cable to my computer for designs. I use a software program for a lot of my designs and being able to correct a design without transferring to a usb and then back to the machine is so helpful. I can make the correction and upload very quickly. I have had few thread breakage. Any time the thread broke it was due to me setting the tension incorrectly or poor quality thread. I really wanted the Brother 10 needle but it was over my price range, the brother PRS100 was the perfect solution for me and it didn't disappoint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love I love being able to do handbags etc. much easier with the persona. The one thing I would like is a bigger hoop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PRS 100 Very good machine so far. Trying to get a handle on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK not the best purchase ever Purchased to do hats and I have not been able to get the first hat finished. The needle removing tool and several other things were missing from the kit. Could have spent $7,000 in a better way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Ever since PRS100 came out I wanted it. I finally got it and love it. You-tube is great with how to's. Its hard to do applique due to frame being to deep so really need fast frames. Making things for coworkers and family gifts. Once I get better and use to machine, plan to start my own business.
