Although this is a good, basic machine it has a few problems. The machine has a difficult time starting a seam and will often drag the fabric down into the feed dogs. The special functions button is between the needle down and reverse buttons and is very easy to hit while trying to reverse. It is truly in the way, as you only use the special function button occasionally. I put tape over mine to keep me from accidentally hitting it when reversing. Finally, the space to feed the fabric through is very small (I'm referring to the area between the needle and the side of the machine). It's fine for smaller items but can be a pain when making something bulkier. You have to roll your fabric or be content with having it all bunched up.
I would still recommend it as it is lightweight, the special functions buttons work very well and it's easy to thread.
