    I have both the frame and this glorious machine. Had the machine for a little over 2 years. The pros far outweigh the cons..Sews like a dream! The con for me is its HEAVY! You have to lift it up and over the rail to get it set on the frame. And when you have to do it by yourself it can be a hassle.

    IF you get a thread nest..I've only had one..its absolute he** trying to get it straightened out because the bobbin casing doesn't come out. Other than those 2 things its definitely my dream machine. =)

    Not sure this is a con..but I spent all that money on the machine and THEN they came out with the LE Edition...did I miss out on alot?

    Thank You Everyone who has responded!! I really appreciate your input. It's a bit confussing on the 830 because 40 some years ago they also had an 830 (record) model. I have that machine and would have a hard time parting with it. When you search Bernina 830 there are a lot of threads on the older one.
