I have a Cuttlebug and a Grand Calibur but the Vagabond is so much easier and quicker to use. I love that I can send something thru one way and then with the flip of a switch send it through the other way, just to make sure I've cut all the way through with those dies that sometimes give me a little trouble. I also appreciate that I don't have to crank anything, the machine is solid and stable, doesn't more and that its surprisingly quiet, not noiseless and certainly makes more noise than my hand crank machines but I can still work on projects at night without disturbing my sleeping hubby in the bedroom next door. I am really liking this machine! Just a few things that could have made it better and I would have given a 5 star rating for- 1. It needs a longer cord. The one included is seriously short, well much shorter than I need to reach the outlet I have to plug it into which requires me to have to set up an additional table near my computer so I can plug it in. 2. Larger opening to allow for large "Grand Calibur" dies. It would be nice to only have to have ONE machine that would do it all!
