Rated 3 out of 5 by from brother scan and cut Great machine. Online software and mats need some work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need more practice, I think! I have only been able to use the machine a few evenings..... I purchased it mainly to cut out stamped images. However was disappointed that it didn't work without me outlining the image which distracts from the image.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I purchased originally to cut fabric for appliqué I feel like your replacement items such as blades, mats, and other accessories are triple the cost of other brands and the quality does not warrant the cost difference. I also have a cricut and find that the tackiness of the mats last a lot longer than the brother mat. Also in the user manual, the settings you have established are way off. I cut through my mat the very first use but of course you sell mats at triple the cost of others. I am a member of several groups on Facebook and have seen this complaint across all boards. I will continue to use the scan n cut as I do like the scan feature and being able to see my design in screen although the video quality could use some work.  I have started cutting vinyl and for the most part, it seems ok, I have to play a lot with the depth and pressure to get a good cut thus wasting a lot of vinyl.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brother scan n cut CM 250 Not the best machine I've ever bought. Not consistent in cutting. Tech support is totally unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I've made Works great. Cuts just like my 550dx. Use both to do big projects. No problems

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for fabric I bought the cut n scan for fabric. I make a lot if in the hoop designs on my embroidery machine. The pieces are sometimes small and awkward to cut out by hand. I had to work on getting the right settings and that can be frustrating but once I did it cuts everything out perfect and precise. Glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long-my go to machine I enjoy making cards for friends and family and love that I can now weld built in shapes together and make personal cards for any occasion. My granddaughter declared her card Her most favorite card (and she hadn't opened any other ones yet) A six year old boy told me he had his card in his desk drawer because he did NOT want to lose it. Thanks Scan and Cut for making it possible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!!! Works great but still can't master cutting smaller 1/2" size words. They keep mushing up when cutting. Anything larger cuts great. Saves me money since I don't have to purchase coordinating dies for my stamps. The dies cost a lot more than the stamps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I'm still in the learning phase, but everything I've tried has worked really well. I think I'm going to like this machine!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ScanNCut 250 The ScanNCut 250 does great on vinyl. But I purchased it to cut fabric which if you are cutting only a very few pieces it works great. If you are Making a quilt of any size the cost of supplies are to great when you have to replace the knife and the paper backing used for cutting fabric. So I have an expensive machine that will not be used enough to justify the purchase. I bought this machine because I liked the idea of scanning my on patterns an not having to buy expensive templates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cool machine I own 2 brother scan and cut machines. I have only used these machines a few times. I need to learn more on what these machines can really do. I am going to take a couple of classes and watch videos. I have enjoyed using these machines when I have used them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Brother needs to work some kinks out I was so thrilled to get this machine, but admit, I am disappointed in it so far. First of all, the mats are horrible. After only a few cuts, my images were sliding off the mats & it ruined several. Now I have to tape down anything so it doesn't get ruined. When the machine works, it works great. However, it is very finicky with images and doesn't cut many of my stamps which is why I purchased it in the first place so I didn't have to keep hand cutting images. It appears to work very well with only well defined borders/images. At times, it also takes too long to recognize images. I like the direct cut feature when it works. I will continue to play with it, but at this point, I am very frustrated as it didn't work the way I expected. I should've read more reviews before I purchased it. It's a great concept when it works

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scan N Cut This is the first Brother product I have purchased. I am still learning about how that it can do. I would really have liked a printed manual to go with this that covers all the topics. Internet and youtube videos are helpful but would like something written out that helps me go slower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good machine but There are too many bugs that need to be worked out with this machine. The upgraded machines came out so quickly that the first one made have literally nothing compared to the new ones. It does make some items but for the money I expected so much more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It cuts vinyl and fabric for me. I'm happy with it and the price was right. Am learning what it can do.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It could be better I have the scan and cut, i ordered mats for it. After the 2nd cut, my mat wouldn't stick to the vinyl so i can cut another picture. I have been afraid to try my fabric. I really did hope this would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Glad I Took the Leap I debated on whether to spend this much money on another crafting tool but I am glad I did. It was worth it. It is so easy to use.....pretty self-explanatory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to my Sewing Room I bought this item when Hancock Fabrics went out of business. I've found so many uses for it. I've cut vinyl letters/monograms for my travel cups, a banner and custom drawn drink coasters for party favors. There is a bit of a learning curve, but you can get tons of help on YouTube. The downside is I can't buy accessories locally in Houston. I have to buy them online. I really like my Brother ScanNCut!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still learning So far I like the scan n cut. my favorite thing is to scan any item and it will cut. Still so much to learn.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Machine Scan and Cut The machine is okay a little loud but I do like it. How ever the Cutting mats need to be redone, the paper does not stick very well. I have to tape my project to the cutting mat. Once you get the mats to work this will be a great crafting tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase This was one of the best purchases I have every made. This is just what was needed at the school my granddaughter attends to save time on cutting out paper items for the display board and for the students to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ScanNCut not working as anticipated! I am having trouble getting the scanning and cutting down. I have tried several times to scan in my designs. I either have cut marks in mat plus designs do not cut clean. I have made adjustments according to directions. Finally ended cutting by hand. I have arthritis and had hoped this would work to save painful hands. I will continue to try and adjust settings again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sew Much Fun Love the versatility of this machine.Making personalized cards, appliques for fancy dress, still learning about the quilting. I am having sew much fun sometimes it's hard to stop!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great purchase However I'm still learning how to cut. I purchased it mostly to cut fabric shapes that I can scan. I've tried to get the scan n cut canvas people to recognize me but they don't like any email or password I've given them and they will not contact me. I'm a retail fabric store and would like to sell these when I get successful at cutting fabric.
