"I was really concerned when I read the previous review, and just wasn't sure what to expect. So on delivery I decided to put the machine fully through its paces. I have to say that it performed perfectly all asked of it. I tested each of the stitches and found the tension spot on for all. It is a very well designed machine and incredibly easy to use. I can only say that my experience has been very positive and I would recommend this machine."

Does not compare to most other machines

"Both my husband and I have several decades of experience with sewing machines and would be regarded by most as very competent in use and service.
Fast delivery of the 4day deal machine at a good price but ...........
This machine as delivered has problems with normal polycottons and all lighter weight fabrics as used in childrens dresses. The basic zig zag stitch is badly out of balance at factory settings and will tunnel on all but heavier fabrics. This renders most of the zig zag based decorative stitches useless on everyday fabrics. We tried repeatedly to achieve a flat stitch by adjustment of both upper and lower tensions but failed to achieve an acceptable example.
Straight stitching was at first also defective and the bottom thread tangled in the hook several times. This was solved by a clean and polish. [An internet search found several owners complaining of this problem]
We are returning this machine after one frustrating day.
