It's the equivalent of an older Janome...mid to late '90's. Here's some info on it:

If the table (retail today about 125) comes along with it, it is more than worth it if it is in good shape and runs etc. This is a nice machine - probably has a few touches the Janome like it doesn't because Elna is a bit higher up the scale of specs than Janome usually although they are Janome made machine. I usually want to spend not a lot on a used machine myself, but to get this plus the table and the rolling drawer set too?! Sounds like a deal to me - IF IT WORKS. I never believe the advertisers and would only want to check it out first.

I bought a demo model many years ago and it is still going strong. Looks like a good deal if it is in the condition described.

Elna is a good machine --
