Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy To Use! I was totally new to embroidery when I purchased the Innov-is. I brought it home, I was able to embroider my first piece that afternoon. This machine takes the guess work out of learning. Thrilled with my purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and to understand I had never done machine embroidery so was fearful to use it the first time. It was very user friendly and had easy to understand directions. It has a lot a very nice patterns included with in the machine itself and is very easy to load other patterns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from innovis NP1400E sewing machine I love this machine you can control the speed of stitching, make stitches denser, back it up as much as you want, change color in lettering, letters are built in, stop anytime, is upgradeable for life for free by download, brother send messages for upgrades with information on how to check you machine to see if the program is up to date, it would take a few pages to explain all the options. Check it out at a dealer pricing is well in line with the great quality of the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brother Innov-is NQ1400E is a great buy! I love my Innov-is NQ1400E. I am an experienced machine embroiderer (20 years), and this machine has some great features. The embroidery field is 6" x 10"; provides low bobbin warning; color LCD screen; and transferable designs from computer to embroidery machine via USB thumb drive. The manual that comes with the machine is well written, and easy to understand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome upgrade I received this machine for Xmas and it is a day/night difference from my pe770. I especially love the bigger 6 x 10 hoop! Opens many doors! It stiches smooth and much quieter than my other machine. Love the new push button controls. Tons of Pros! I am disappointed because I've had the machine in twice in two months because the thread keeps winding around something inside. My dealer is so backed up that one machine I dropped off on December 2 is still not up to get fixed. My 1400 was taken in last week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Have had this a month now. Absolutely love this machine. I use it almost every day and the only issues I’ve had have been user error. If you need a hoop larger than 5x7 this is the one to get. Largest hoop size is 6x10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I find this machine easy to use. I also purchased the BES 4 software which comes with a wifi USB, it makes it work seamlessly with the Scan n Cut. I highly recommend this machine for its price range. I replaced an older machine with this one, and I have already found it so much easier to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not so sure I actually won this machine, I did not purchase it. I am not new to embroidery by any means, but it seems as though this machine has a lot of hiccups in trusted designs I use often. I’ve only had the machine a few months and am attributing it to user error. I will say it is very easy to use, especially having previous single needle embroidery machine experience.
