I got the brother version for 6400 with trade in and a free foot pedal included. Some dealers even have deals with other things included. Overall I got about 1000 over the original price of what I paid for my machine, not the bluebook price so there are deals to be had. I have known people who got floor models for 5k, so just check around . prices vary regionally unfortunately I live in one of the more expensive states

My advice is never to pay the advertised price, always negotiate aggressively. The mark ups are huge and dealers do not expect to sell at list price or at advertised sale prices.

Thank you to all who replied. I am trying to decide between the Ellisimo and the Unity. I am primarily a quilter so I am leaning toward the Unity. Why did you choose the Unity?

Hi:
Coincidentally, I'm trying to decide between the same two machines. like you, I am mainly a quilter. Normally, the Ellisimo would be out of my range but the dealer happens to have a demo model so it is currently the same price as the Unity, which is on sale with a bonus TRUstitch. I asked the dealer for a recommendation between those two. He advised that they are more a side step than a step up in the sense that the advantages they offer are in different areas. He said that the Ellisimo is definitely a dream machine and wonderful to sew on but it's biggest advantage over the Unity are for embroidery work and sewing clothes. The Unity, on the other hand has a few advantages for quilters. In particular, he mentioned the wider space to the right of the needle and the duo-feed.

I am not sold on the TRUstitch because I've been working on free motion to get more consistent stitches and would rather develop that skill than use the regulator so I have asked if there could be a better price without the bonus.

I am leaning towards the Unity but this is a big purchase so I want to be sure I am getting the right machine. Have you had any other information or reviews?

Looking at a big upgrade like this is exciting but also nerve racking.

With all due respect to your dealer I disagree with him about the Ellisimo being better than the Unity for sewing clothes. I have the Brother version of the Unity (Dreamweaver) which was recommended to me over the Quattro (Ellissimo) for garment sewing as it has the motorised walking foot with differential feed, whereas the Quattro doesn't. The muvit foot is great for quilting several layers but also for sewing sheer, slippery, tricky or extra bulky fabrics as well as sewing two pieces of different weights together evenly (I've used it with excellent results when sewing a lining to a coat). It was the muvit foot that impressed me as a garment sewer more than any other feature when I was out test driving numerous machines. It makes sewing a breeze.

Thanks for that info. Very good to know. I guess that makes all the more reason to go with the Unity. I don't really know how to do garments but do want to learn a few things, although I expect to continue to do more quilting than other projects.
