I bought this machine almost a year ago as something for my daughter to use. I have a machine with more features, but nothing fancy or really good ... after using this machine, I haven't unpacked my actual machine in months and I have worked out an agreement that I can use her machine as well. This is the one on the table now. I don't do anything fancy, but what this machine does it does WELL. The first thing I tried with it, because I sure didn't think it would work, was to fix something I screwed up. Essentially, I used the longest zig zap stitch on this to go through 3 layers of brocade and 2 layers of interfacing and it DID it. I didn't think it would. Since then, It had acted like a MUCH bigger machine than it is. It is a solid little thing. Yes, the buttonhole isn't fancy, but it works. I don't do that many buttons. What this machine does, is it just works. I have rarely broken a thread. I have rarely had anything jam. It goes more than fast enough for me, and better yet, it is so portable. I can fit it AND other stuff in the tote that used to barely fit my POS Singer. After buying this machine, I will never look at another brand, because if Janome can make a machine this reliable for this little, I am sold.
