Cons:
Poor Quality, Complicated

This machine was purchased to do heavy duty sewing on a variety of materials. For basic sewing projects, it does ok. However, there are some problems. The self threader is basically useless. The bobbin tangles and has since the first test use after purchase. The tension is difficult to keep at a proper tautness. Changing to different feet is tricky at best. After using this machine for the past 2 months, I regret the purchase.

Pros:
Easy To Use
Cons:
Poor Quality

I bought this machine and did little on it for the first couple of months of ownership. I started a project (a pillow) and couldn't get it stitched before the mechanism bound up. In total, I have made less than 100 inches of total stitches.

I took it to an authorized Singer sewing center and was told it was not covered by warranty. I ended up paying another 42% of the purchase price to get it out of the shop - all along cursing myself for throwing good money after bad. The service technician explained to me that the machine had not been adjusted/lubricated properly at the manufacturing site. It sure seems like this would be basic process - but Singer must know how to build sewing machines (?).

Not sure what "commercial grade" means, it sure doesn't mean it is a reliable product.

I believe you would serve yourself well by looking for another brand.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons:
Automatic Threader Came Loose From Its Connection

I've only had the machine for about 2 months. The automatic threader came loose from it attachment on the inside which caused to needle to hit the needle plate every time i tried to sew. I did use the machine a lot using canvas fabric to make handbags. The machine does rattle when I sew, which may have caused the threader to come loose.

I've been very please with this machine up until this point. I'm currently seeking advice as to how it can be fixed.

Cons:
Needs A Heavy Duty Ruffler To Go With Heavy Duty Machine

Love this machine! No problems with it yet except one. I am having a hard time getting a ruffler to work on this machine and that is a big reason I bought the commercial version. Everything else is great sews through multiple layers of fabric just great. I am still learning great things I can do with this machine. I would recommend this machine to someone that sews all kinds of fabric like me.
