Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thread Shredder Very Disappointed,Bought it in April of 2017 and has been shredding and eating thread since day one. Been in twice the dealer lower the speed to 400 I said wow really from 850 to 400 which is the lowest, doesn't matter still doing the same. I have tried serval different threads it doesn't change a thing. Very frustrating makes you to want and toss it out the window. I guess I bought the one made on a Monday or Friday.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 1400 E This machine has given me the flux every since the first day. I try to embroider and something always goes wrong but never resumes where it left off. I think it's the speed when I trying anything other than 500 spm the thread gets caught the needle breaks the bobbin gets caught but it never resumes where it stopped I'm still under warrenty the store refuses to get a new. I've taken it for maintance twice always return with same issue. I have the prs100 awesome no problems. I've been embroidering on it for over a year never had this many problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NIce machine I struggle with threading the upper thread. I find it very hard to slide the thread behind stop #6, needle bar thread guide. My dealer advised me to lower the needle, which does help, but I still fight this every time I change thread colors. I find it hard to find what I need to know in the manual. The fonts/shading in the manual can be very hard to read. For instance, I have no idea on page E-4, in the right hand column, what button I should be pressing in step 4, with the dark shading, I cannot read what is within that box. Removing the needle plate cover screws with the L-screwdriver is very difficult. The needle plate cover does not slide forward, there is a clip on the right that you have to get undone. It has been a frustrating day today with needing to get inside the machine. I am sure it will be easier next time. Overall I am very happy with my machine and am glad I bought it. Brothers built in designs are not my style, so everything I am doing involves buying designs on-line. I can live with that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Update/ upgrade Really enjoy using this machine. Still learning how to use it but so far it’s been great This replaces a Bernina embroidery machine and so far I’m happy with it it is a better machine than what I had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine This isn’t my second embroidery machine from Brother. Like it very much except that the machine does not embroider very close to the edge of the hoop, necessitating using the larger hoop more often than I would like. My other one embroidered a little closer. That said, it is very intuitive to use, and I have had many compliments on my final products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new machine - Brother Innov NQ1400E I love this machine. I am not using it for business. I just wanted to be able to personalize gifts that I make and this is perfect for that. Some day I may upgrade to the next best thing, but currently happy with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge step up from my SE400! I’ve been astounded by the performance of my new NQ1400E. This machine is so much faster, more powerful and produces much more professional-quality sew-outs than my SE 400 “training machine”. Finally, my digitized designs closely resemble what I see on my computer screen. I highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased This is a very nice machine. It’s very intuitive and easy to use. It also stitches well without error. My only issue is that the foot is too low. It often gets caught in jump stitches so you have to watch like a hawk. Many projects have been ruined because I turned my back for a second.
