I have no complaints at all about the Big Shot. It is heavier than its competitors,and has a bigger footprint, which makes it a bit more difficult to take to crops or to store at home. However, the size and weight are what make it the excellent machine that it is. My video demo shows how to use it with Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Cuttlebug Dies, a QuicKutz die, and a brass embossing template. These are by no means all of the dies that the Big Shot can take -- they just happen to be the ones I own. I love this craft tool.

I just got the Sizzix Big Shot a few days ago and I already love it. (It arrived from Amazon in less than 2 days!) I'm not a scrapbooker, but a mixed media artist, and I haven't found a single material yet that my Big Shot can't cut through. So far, I've cut paper, card stock, chipboard, eva foam (fun foam) sheets, Grungeboard (thick rubbery sort-of chipboard) and .020 clear rigid plastic with the blue liner still attached. I was suprised how easily it sliced through anything I tested. This thing is awesome!

The dies can be purchased for so little money, if you shop around or use those craft-store coupons. I haven't spent more than 7 bucks on any set, and just a few dollars for single dies or embossing folders.

Here's my favorite things about it, and why I chose the Big Shot over other choices:

1. Cuts through just about anything. Even the electronic cutters can't do that.

2. I like that it's "old school." Crank handle, old fashioned type dies, rather than electronic cartridges. I do art and crafting to ESCAPE the computer, not sit in front of it even longer! I do plan to purchase a Craft Robo for more intricate custom designs, but I prefer this "hands-on" method for creating my masterpieces!

3. Old School Esthetic: Even the design has an antique look about it. It reminds me of the old fashioned black rotary phones, the black manual sewing machines and typewriters. It looks neat sitting out on my studio countertop. Keeping it out and handy, makes it easier to "try something real quick" when inspiration strikes.

4. Versatile: There's an abundance of inexpensive choices when it comes to buying dies and embossing designs. I think this Big Shot will cut just about every other brand of die out there.

I love this machine, there are so many possibilities! I did want to make a note though that even though the description says Machine only it actually comes with the multipurpose platform and a pair of standard cutting pads. I actually bought a pair of cutting pads because I thought that it didn't come with it. Oh well, I guess I can still use them.
Shipping from Ritz takes a little longer than Amazon. But you end up still saving money even with paying the shipping. and it only took an extra day or so. I would say it was worth it.

I was very reluctant to spend such a considerable amount of money on a piece of equipment I didn't quite fully understand, but eventually I took the plunge and I am so glad I did! I'm a mixed media/collage artist and I learned of the BigShot from the Tim Holtz website. I love his embellishments and hardware and thought it would be so much more cost-effective if I could cut my own shapes rather than buying them (and wasting so many resources on packaging and driving here and there). I opted for the BigShot over the CuttleBug because I read several crafting blogs where it was almost unanimous that the BigShot was simply more likable than the other die-cutting machines. "More sturdy," "easier to use," and "cuter," were a few comments. Most of the dies I like are from Sizzix so it was natural for me to look at the die-cutting machine offered by Sizzix. I got it for a GREAT price on Amazon ($60) and have been finding more and more uses for it every day! It cuts so many materials, more than I will ever use! I'm a chip/grunge/cardstock kinda gal; I love paper! But it will also cut wire mesh and thin metal sheets, as well as sandpaper and fabric. The cuts are very clean and it's easy to maneuver the dies and the cutting plates. I've had the BigShot for less than two weeks and have already cut more things than I have use for! And that was my plan! To have the selection of my dream craft store right in my studio!

I just finished cutting with some of the brand new Alterations dies and I must say this machine has really opened up my imagination, and creative juices are flowing! That's why I came back to Amazon mid-cutting to write a review! I'm really happy with my purchase and yes, I have been investing more and more into dies and embossing folders but any craft or hobby has a financial investment.

I've owned my Big Shot since these machines were first released a few years ago. I love it, and it's still going strong. The advantages are that it's quiet, it has an easy crank action, it has a large footprint and is very stable when cranking things through, it's sturdy, it can take all of the non-commercial dies, embossing folders, brass stencils, and texture plates out there. It also has a multipurpose platform which makes using all of those items extremely easy--it has all of the instructions printed right on it, with helpful illustrations for the more visual folks out there.

I don't always do my crafting at my table. This machine is super if I happen to be working on the floor where there's carpeting. When I am at my craft table, I don't always clear a space for it--if it happens to be on top of a sheet of scrap paper or a magazine, it still works fine--no worries about suction to hold it steady and stable while cranking.

The one drawback is its size. It's not the best for taking to crops, but if you're like me and don't take it anywhere other than perhaps from room to room in the house, then that's not an issue at all. The handle at the top makes it easy to carry, and it weighs just over 7 pounds by my scale, so it's not nearly as heavy as the original red Sizzix machine, and it's actually just a bit lighter than the Cuttlebug.

This is a super machine and extremely versatile. I've really put it to the test over the years and it's held up beautifully. If I could only have one die cutting machine (I actually own a Cuttlebug, too.), this would definitely be the one that I'd choose.
