    Brother SE-400 vs. Brother PE170D

    I want to purchase an embroidery machine mainly for making quilt labels and possibly monograming some items. I won't be making any embroidered quilt blocks with it. I have the opportunity to purchase either of these machines used. I know that they both only have a 4 x 4 stitch area. I know that the SE- 400 has a USB port and I can take designs from my computer and stitch them. The PE 170 has the Disney patterns but that doesn't excite me in the least. They are both the same price. Which one do you think I should go with? Is one a better machine than the other?

    I would go with the one with a USB port, makes it easier to transfer designs
