I think the LB6800THRD is a great starter sewing/embroidery machine for the money. Although i has the capability to upload designs when connected to your laptop, I wish it had a type-A, USB port.
This is a great step up from the Brother HE 4"x4" hoop machines. Very user friendly and simple to use. The hoop is hard to get on and off at times. The designs are easy to transfer from the computer to usb to the machine.
This machine is great for home embroidery. Many patterns to choose from with a variety of size choices. Easy up to use, has many patterns on the machine plus has an embroidery card slot and usb port for a flash drive. Very happy with purchase so far. I haven't done a larger pattern yet but bought some and I am hoping they stitch out as nicely as the smaller ones
I am enjoying my machine immensely. Easy to understand. I am slowly learning how to download new embroidery patterns from my computer via USB flash drive. I do wish the hoops were a little easier to attach to the arm. Makes beautiful designs.
