Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine - bought 5 years ago! I love this sewing machine! I bought it for myself five years ago and it has worked great, very few issues! First brother sewing machine that I have owned - always used Singer before. Use it for piecing quilts, hems, etc. Haven't gotten fancy with it but maybe someday, when I have more time! Thinking of buying it for my sister!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from for simple sewing and general sewing "Great" Purchased for my daughter for Christmas and as it goes Santa had to make sure it was simple for her purpose, even tho she ones her own business she had to make simple repairs. As I like to sew multiple items(toys,quilting&clothing& ect.) Santa had to order one for her self. Enjoying sewing with this little XR4040 very much. Had to replace another machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased for my Sister I just love the brother machine that I have so I purchased one for my Sister and she loves it. I have 4 machines but she only has the one and uses it all the time. I think these machines with there drop in bobbin and help in self threading are great. And the price was wonderful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Little workhorse I bought this machine to take to weekly sewing meeting. It is light weight and easy to carry. It works great, easy to use and I really have no complaints. I knew it did't have have a thread cutter when I bought it and am now sorry that I didn't think it was a priority, but it is. I would recommed this for a beginnan't be beat. I am really partial to Brother and the quality of their machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Machine I received this machine a gift to get back into sewing several years ago. As a beginning, this machine was easy to use and has been able to keep up with my needs as my sewing skills have progressed. I was even able to purchase a walking foot and free-motion quilting foot to expand the capabilities of this machine. Great stitch selections with 39 different stitches. I love that the machine has pictures for each stich unlike other machines where you have to memorize the number associated with each stich. I also like that it is easy to adjust the stitch length and width with easy.

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.
