|What sewingsilly likes about this machine|
I received this sewing machine as a Christmas gift back in 2011. I primarily wanted it for the "value added foot package". I own the Singer Quantum L-500 and knew those feet would also work on this machine.
This machine is smooth and quiet. It's amazing how many features are included for a rather low price point. There are some great deals out there right now on this machine for less than what I paid for mine.
The stitch quality is excellent. It's easy to adjust from stitch to stitch. The buttonhole function is simple and there's a nice variety of buttonholes offered. There are 13 different buttonhole operations. I've used this machine to stitch knits and even denim. I haven't had any problems with this machine at all.
I've used one of the 5 built in alphabets to make personalized Christmas Ornaments for my sons classmates. One of the alphabets is not English so technically there are 4 useful fonts. (Russian)
The extra specialty foot package included:
Welt Cording Foot
Stitch in the Ditch Foot
Fancy Trim Foot
Adjustable Binding Foot
Braid Foot and Guide
I've tried the fancy trim foot and the welt cording feet and have done a review on both.
I absolutely love the cutter button. This machine has needle up and down which is nice when you get to a pivot point. I'm usually like a bobbin and casing better than a drop in bobbin, but this one is easy to use and it's nice to see the bobbin thread as you sew. I like that I have the option to use the foot pedal or the on/off button to control the machine. I used the on/off button when I worked with the alphabet for the ornaments and it was kind of fun.
It has a nice variety of decorative stitches and many can be customized. By this I mean elongated, mirrored or change the length or width on many. I haven't tried it to do free motion embroidery, but I will soon.

What sewingsilly does not like about this machine
I like everything about this machine. I only wish it had the integrated dual feed like my L-500. If I had to pick something I think could have been improved upon, it would be the buttons on the front of the machine. They are all very close together and it took me a while to get used to them. The presser foot lever doesn't lift at the back of the machine. It lifts into the harp of the machine. It took me time to get used to that too, but it's fine now.
