    Use the search feature at the top of the site and put in the machine you're interested in. There may have been threads about it:>

    I got an 830 last year and I love it! I don't use it to quilt but I have used it for piecing (love the 1/4" setting) and have used the decorative stitches. I haven't explored all it's possibilities but I love the good solid machine that it is.

    I don't have any experience with that particular machine, but I own a Husqvarna Viking Designer SE and previously had the Husqvarna Viking #1+. I think Husqvarna Viking makes a great machine; very reliable, beautiful stitch, problem free tension, etc. If the price is right, buy it. :)

    I have the Viking Platinum 755. It's a solid machine with a lot of good features and plenty of stitches.

    Thank you all for your input. I did try the search function, and found lots of info about lots of Vikings, but nothing specifically about this model. So, I am still thinking about it.... Guess I should go sew on it, and see if I like it. :?:

    Did you ever buy it? There is one for sale locally for $600.00 obo. Just curious as to how you have liked it so far, if you got it.
    Thank you!

    Didn't buy it - it was at a local pawn shop, and I decided to pass on it. From what I could tell, it was an embroidery machine and that wasn't what I was looking for. I have since bought a Bernina 830 Record at an estate sale and am happy with it.

    The 830 record is one of the best machines ever made (IMHO :thumbup: ) I was thinking of parting ways with it, but changed my mind-resale prices are great for buyers, it is quite a buyer's market. I did see one on ebay for a buy-it-now price of $950.00, and I was wondering what they are smoking.
