    It's listed on Amazon with 15 reviews. Click on "reviews" to read them all:

    Also, if you go to http://www.patternreview.com and click on "embroidery machines" in the left-hand column, then scroll down to Singer, you will find three reviews of this model. You have to join the website to read these reviews because they are more than 6 months old; however, joining is free and worth it IMO.

    I have the Brother SE350 it only does a 4x4 area but I do quilt blocks with it and have had no trouble at all. It seems to have a better review too.

    I have had this machine for 3 years now and love it. I only use it for embroidery. If you ever have used a Singer machine you know that they are a bit persnickity and love to be absolutely clean.Yes you have to have it hooked up to the computer to work it but I really do like have my 21" monitor for working on my design.Singers have gotten a bad rep through the recent years but you won't hear any complaints from me. It comes with 2 sizes of hoops.If you are new to embroidery then you will have to realize that this is different form sewing and the learning curve for some people is where they get into trouble. Just don't buy a used one as there is no warranty with it one the original owner sells it. If you have any more questions you can join QuantumFuturaHelpinghand group on yahoo for more information. They are very helpful and will answer any of your questions.

    Oldhag... thank you very much for the informtion. I have always had Singer sewing machines, all of which have been true work horses and very good to me. I appreciate your comments and the sight for the helping hand group.

    I have a singer CE-200. My suggestion is to go and look around various embroidery sites. Look at the designs and the sizes available... most are gravitating to the 5 X 7" hoop size or larger.
    The larger hoops are not available to these machines. I wish that I would have saved up to get a machine that has larger hoops, or that I could purchase larger hoops for.
    Many designs that I would love to purchase, I have to pass up... Just something to consider before you make a purchase.
