I'm just a beginner sewer, so for me, the more simple the machine, the better. I'm so pleased with my purchase of this one. It is simple and easy to use, and I have already started making winter jackets for my dogs! The only downfall I can see so far is that it is difficult to start sewing slowly. You have to press the peddle down a little bit more, and then it kind of starts really fast, but then you can slow down. Sometimes to help it start slower, I turn the Balance Wheel (big wheel on side) counter-clockwise a little. That helps to give a little more control for your first few stitches. That said, it doesn't bother me, and the machine sews really well.
Since the outer shell is plastic (making it lightweight), and it also has a handle, it is really easy to carry, too. For an occassional sewer like myself, this is definitely an excellent purchase.
