Default Brother scan and cut

Does anyone have one and do you like it? Love it? Is it worth the money?
Thanks

I bought one for fussy cutting around rubber stamped images but it wasn't very accurate so I returned it. I think most don't have this problem but I've read about enough that do.

At least one person doesn't like it. http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...k-t245759.html

I like mine very much but have not had enough time to play. I have seen it fussy cut very nice. I always wonder if people do not just give it enough time, like anything there is a learning curve. I have messed with cutting fabric on the cricut so I have a little experience using a similar type cutter. With anything there are probably lemons out there, but sometimes I feel people just don't necessarily know what they are doing. When ever I get anything I spend the first week reading the manuals and watching as many video s as I can find. Forums also help. But I believe if I can have 2 successful cuts right out of the box with no real training other than video tutorials and reading the manuals leads me to believe others are missing a step somewhere

My cuts were not accurate and I was doing everything right. It's not rocket science-it was pretty simple to set the machine to scan and then cut. A few others have had the same problem but some decided to just live with it. For a $400 machine I was not going to just live with it (I have a silhouette SD also). Just because someone's machine didn't work right doesn't mean they don't know what they're doing and Brother has admitted that some machines are not calibrated correctly. SMH

Thanks, I don't know if it would be worth the money.
