I have both the Sizzix Magnetic Platform and the Lifestyle Crafts Genius Magnetic Platform. Since you have probably already read what everyone loves about this Sizzix item, I thought I would contribute my thoughts comparing the pros and cons of each. The Sizzix platform is 6 1/8" wide (15.56 cm) which means it won't fit in the Cuttlebug. The Genius platform is exactly 6" wide, which makes the Genius compatible with the Cuttlebug. Both brands have other important differences, including which platform simultaneously cuts and embosses (Genius), and which is easier to use when lining up an image(Sizzix).

My biggest beef with Sizzix's product is the continued use of Clear Plexiglass Cutting Pads. I can't imagine why they keep using these, other than the fact that they are a consumable which needs to be replaced. Even more so with the magnetic platform.

Here's the breakdown of PROs and CONs, as I see it:

*Sizzix Platform PROs: more compact than the Genius platform (6-1/8" x 8-7/8") and the die cutting edge faces down, making it easier to line up and cut an image. Sizzix magnetic platform has a much stronger magnetic pull. The cutting sandwich is the platform, one un-warped clear cutting pad, the paper, the die facing down, and another clear cutting pad. No tabs or shims to deal with, unless you want to emboss.

*Sizzix CONs: You still have to use those awful clear plastic plates that warp. Once it warps, the dies have a harder time making contact with the magnetic surface. Some reviews say that's a myth. No, it's no myth! It's true. I bought a brand new set of Sizzix Cutting Pads just to use with my new Sizzix magnetic platform. I made one pad dedicated to "No Cut"...

So id love to give this 5 stars - its got magnets in it and it does hold dies down in place - *IF* your plastic sandwich plates are flat. If they are bent or warped then the magnet in the platform cant reach the die as well, and so they don't always stay put. Also when you have a small die, the magnet doesn't always hold it right where you want it, and it tries the pull the die a different direction. I like the idea, and I think when you have played with it a bit to see how it works, it is a nice thing to have.

I borrowed a friend's Sizzix magnetic platform and I "had" to have my own. It makes using the frames so much easier and I never have to worry about my dies moving.

I love the platform for larger dies, but the small ones tend to "jump" trying to catch the magnets; also, the plates do need to be in fairly good shape to really "catch"

The whole reason I bought the Sizzix Magnetic Platform was for die cutting words using small alphabet dies out of the front of my cards, leaving a negative space. They don't hold still, they tend to move a slight bit or crazy when you put them down. I had been using a magnet sheet that worked great, but assumed the platform would be perfect. I don't really have a problem with movement with my bigger dies. If there is a trick for the small dies, I would love to know one. I tried several different sets and they all move and won't hold the position I put them in.

As another reviewer stated, the platform is an excellent help with the thin magnetic dies - as long as your plates aren't warped. I don't know about you guys, but I use my plates until they look like a cat's scratching post, and they tend to warp during that time. Also, some of the smaller dies from other companies may not stay in place as well. However, I am very pleased with this product, and will resort to post-it notes when necessary.

The new magnetic platform is awesome ... Sizzix has done it again. I had the one from Lifestyle Crafts but this one works 100 times better. I am a stamper and so most of the time, I stamp my image and then want to line up my die over that image. You can do just that because this platform is so magnetic it will hold through the cutting pad ... that is a "WOW"! It is a MUST HAVE!
