I own this machine, and would highly recommend it to anyone, regardless of the price. Yes, it is expensive. If you shop around and watch for specials, you can find it for significantly less. I've used it many times and have purchased some of the dies for it. I really love the large shape dies, particularly the large scallop. It is definately worth saving for ( a great Christmas gift too! )
i own the big shot, the electric one, and the big shot pro...love them all..
i get a super cut with the pro..love the 12 x 12 dies...the pro works wonderful with some of the accucut dies..i get great cuts with the fabric dies..super machine..it is very big... make sure you have plenty of room ..very heavy .
