I keep dreaming of a personal-sized laser cutting machine...a bladeless machine that cuts with laser precision...but can easily sit on your desk...and is affordable. (If you're gonna dream...) Guess I should get off my behind and invent one! HA HA!

I kept my small one, just because I sometimes take it with me to events. If I am going to a friends for a crop or something, other than that it rarely gets used, but like it said the 12 x 12 paper and a 12 x 12 machine make more sense.

I agree with you, LARIESHA. I don't want to be tempted. It was a completely different matter when Cricut introduced the Expression...I had the small Cricut at the time...so it made perfect sense to go up to a 12" mat because that's the largest size of paper we typically have access to. It was really easy to sell my small Cricut at the time, so it worked out. But now, there are so many options...easy to get overwhelmed!

I have not looked at the Silhouette and not sure how it works. I like my Expression and am afraid if I see something else, I will be tempted to buy it. I did not like the imagine either, but I had just gotten my Expression when I really looked at it.

I am sticking to my Expression now. emoticon

I just have my good old Expression. I am a little undecided about whether or not I want to take a leap of faith in the new version (Explore). I'm seeing comments from various sites with all kinds of information...good and not so good. Many people are posting about their Silhouettes and about how much they love them. People have expressed disapproval for the Cricut Imagine, which I do not own...glad I didn't fall for the hype on THAT!

I am not familiar with the types of files that the Silhouette uses, though I DO use Provo Craft's "Craft Room" for many of my cuts. Does anyone know if the Silhouette uses a similar type of technology? I've seen comments regarding the technology and file types that the Cricut Explore uses, and it sounds like it's similar to the Silhouette.

At any rate, I'm not going to jump on board for a while. Best to let the dust settle and see what types of bugs come out. It always happens, no matter what brand of cutter people buy. And for now, I'm very much satisfied with the files I'm able to cut on my Cricut Expression. Too many for me to keep track of, quite honestly. emoticon

That machine does look cool. But I have 2 already. I don't see me investing in another either, unless mine stops working. I hope it doesn't. emoticon

I love the tool storage compartment. Not sure it's worth investing in another machine though. I already have these features with my Silhouette machine, which I absolutely love!

If the journey was easy I wouldn't appreciate the benefits I reap.
