I would strongly discourage anyone fom purchasing this machine. I recieved it approx 8 months ago as a gift. The 25 year warranty is a crock. More like a 12 month warranty. This is the second time my machine has been sent to the shop... now it needs a new motherboard. I've spent about $120 out of my own pocket shipping this beast for repairs. The nearest repair shop is over 75 miles from my house, and I had to pay for shipping from the repair facility to the brother corportation to get my motherboard replaced. Not impressed considering the price of the machine, and mine was purchased new and not refurbished!! Stitches are not very straight at all either, its ok for piecing but I wouldnt use it on anything that shows. And the alphabet function doesn't look very nice. I feel like I am stuck with this machine, I am not even comfortable giving it away because it's performance over the past 8 months has been pathetic.
