I have wanted this product for over a year now! I almost purchased the Silhouette SD but I am so happy I waited till the Cameo was released, this product is amazing! It does so many things with so many types of materials that are only limited to your imagination. I recently used old paper grocery bags to make some folding boxes! Worked out wonderfully. I was also going to try using some old magazines I have lying around. I would suggest to anyone that is a crafter or just loves to make their items instead of purchasing, the sky is the limit with the Silhouette!
It was super easy to set up and came with the 10.00 gift card to get started with some free downloads. You can also subscribe to their service for 9.99 a month to get 25 in free downloads. Also if you have pictures or drawing you did or want to use, you can upgrade to the Silhouette Studio Designers Edition and be able to transform and manipulate anything!
Great product and great purchase! Totally worth the money and received it super fast!

I was nervous about buying the cameo because I used to own the Cricut Expression and NEVER got the hang of it. NEVER got a clean cut or I didnt have the images that I wanted to cut. But with the Silhouette even the tiny details cut like butter! And it is insanely easy to use. You have tons of images to choose from in the Silhouette store and almost all of the images are cents or less. It even gives you the option to create you own images. If your on the fence between this and the Cricut, choose this and you will not be dissapointed!!!

I have owned Cricuts previously and didn't want to keep spending money on cartridges. I love that you can cut anything on your computer with this - even clip art from Etsy.
So far the cuts with the Silhouette are much smoother and don't have ripped edges with more intricate cuts.
The Cameo even tells you speed and blade settings when you tell it what type of paper you are using.
I thought I would keep my Imagine once I bought this, but not anymore!!

This is a great product for a more advanced crafter...I have been paper crafting for just over 2 years now and this has made a big improvement from the other die cut machine I owned prior...this has such good, acurate cuts...and the Print and Cut option is amazing I love it... the ability to print something on your own printer with registration marks and then have the cutter cut the image out .... its just amazing to me how good this little machine is...
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? good, but the description says 12"x10" Die cutting Machine and the mat is a 12X12 inch mat but can cut up to 10 Foot

Please tell us about the quality of the product. OMG!! it's great..very light weight but its working like a charm
Bought this device versus the Cricut to use my fonts which the Cricut machine sells as individual expensive cartridges. Also wanted a 12" wide work area to cut full size scrapbook paper. I am very happy with the machine. Cuts are accurate and fast. Software is not hard to use. It is easy to add my own designs. It is large but not heavy making it easy to transport. New cutting mat is two sticky. Acts like glue holding my standard weight scrapbook paper. Spent 20 minutes scraping the bits off of my first project. Recommend pressing the sticky side onto a cotton pillow case or t-shirt to add a little fuzz and release some of the stickiness. Card stock works best on new mats.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality. Highly recommended.
I own both the silhouette and the cricut and prefer the silhouette to the cricut for a number of reasons. The biggest reason is that I do not need to buy cartridges. I like silhouettes software, I can create and cut my own images. Never had any issues with updates. Had held up better than the cricut. I had to have my cricut replaced after a few uses. Unlike cricut, they don't offer "free" technology (like the wifi), and then not deliver.
I use my cricut and the cricut machine I have now is working fine, but the silhouette is my everyday go to machine.
I am in LOVE with my Silhouette Cameo! I bought my machine in March of this year along with the software upgrade to the Design Studio, which I HIGHLY recommend. I have been able to make so many cool things with this machine and each time I use it I figure out more and more about it and what it can do. I recommend buying a 2nd cutting mat and a replacement blade. You will also want some tools like the spatula thingy if you are going to be cutting out intricate vinyl. So far, I have cut fabric, paper, adhesive vinyl, and heat press vinyl. I made some cheerleading hairbows and used the heatpress vinyl to iron on shapes and sayings, the girls loved them! I have also purchased the rhinestone starter kit and made a few rhinestone templates. It was VERY easy to do this. Keep your cutting mat clean is a must. Wipe it down with a baby wipe after each use to help it stay tacky longer. Also, keep the paper cover that comes on it and replace it on the mat after each use to keep dust and such from landing on it. I didn't realize the importance of that tackiness and was trying to cut some hologram spandex and it just wouldn't cut right. I thought it was the blade that was too dull, change it, nope. Found my mat wasn't sticky enough so the fabric wasn't staying in place. Overall this is a fabulous product, way better than it's competitior that uses cartridges. I highly recommend this if you are in the market for a die cutting machine!
I own a small Cricut but after some research decided to go with the Silhouette Cameo and am so happy I did. As with any new program there is a learning curve to the program. The CD with directions is more of a quick start view, you may need to go to You Tube and view videos for more directions.
Although this machine is more expensive than a Cricut, don't even think twice. It is so totally superior. I have used a Cricut Expression many times and was always frustrated with the quality of the cuts (paper tearing, etc), and struggled to get things sized the way I wanted. It was just so clumsy and annoying to use. So much wasted paper.
The Cameo is so much simpler and smarter. It's controlled only through the computer, so you're seeing exactly what your cuts will look like before you execute. The software asks what type of media you are cutting and recommends what setting to use - no guesswork!! The cuts are clean. The mat is not too sticky - it's perfect (I have only cut cardstock so far). The software is pretty easy to figure out. I had it up and running within 15 minutes. The online image library is great - I found what I was specifically looking for, a tiny elephant shape to put on cupcake toppers for a baby shower. Downloading images is super quick and easy. I mainly use it to make cupcake wrappers for my cake business. Love it!!!
I love my Cameo. It cuts so percisely and cleanly you have a wonderful finished item. It is very easy to use and has so many options to choose from. I feel that the instruction booklet could be more inclusive for users that are not as experienced with computers. However it is a great machine that allows you to make loads of fun projects.
