I'm so happy with my Big Shot Pro machine! I have a place to put it, so size and weight is not an issue for me. I love that I can use any Sizzix (or other) products with it, no matter how small. The machine is quality built and the sliding tray is heavy duty, I can't imagine ever having to replace it. The only assembly required is putting the crank handle on with the included allen wrench ... it's a snap! I have since purchased other cutting plates (a pair of extended plates) to reduce wear on the large plates that come with the machine. Dies cut cleanly and perfectly, and the only problem with owning this machine is the never ending wanting of new dies! It also embosses paper very professionally using embossing folders, and the addition of the solo platform lets you cut spellbinder dies as well as emboss very nicely. If you want to save a few dollars and go with the smaller machine ... think again. Then when you find that wonderful big die to cut envelopes and you can't use it because of size restrictions ... well ... I'd just have to say "I told you so!" Enjoy. Thanks also to Overstock.com for prompt shipping, and the best price I could find as well.
