4.0 out of 5 stars All That Glitters...
By The Troll Under the Bridge on January 3, 2016
I have had my Cricut less than a month. I purposefully waited before I posted a review. I like and I dislike this machine. I think my dislike comes from the manner in which this machine is promoted. Let me explain.

When you get the Cricut, you have an introductory membership to their library of images you can cut. I was in the middle of scrapping some Christmas photos and when I saw the cuts available for me, I got excited. I was particularly drawn to the images that had words, like a stencil effect that would say something like "Merry and Bright". So, I follow the instructions on how to cut the image. I enlarge the image to fit the space I wanted it to have on my page and the machine did its thing. Its thing was to chew up the paper at those places that had sharp curves. If the curve was gentle, things were OK. Sharp curves seemed out of the realm of possibilities. I next studied up on how to use my own fonts with the machine so I could create titles for my pages. Again, I would create the image, upload it to the machine per the instructions of a YouTube video I watched. There was my title, ready to be cut. And, once again, the machine could not handle the sharp curves.

After a week of having this difficulty, I emailed Customer Service. The representative that replied was most responsive to my dilemma. He asked if I could email a picture of a cut that messed up so he could see what was happening. I did so. In a timely fashion, he replied back. He thought that maybe the blade housing was at fault. So, he ordered me a new blade housing, two new mats and a new blade. The replacements were free. I was very impressed by the service I got.

Now, the upside of the machine is that for those images that are not quite so intricate, it does quite a good job. And, if you are willing to sacrifice paper and are very patient, sometimes you will get lucky and can eventually get an image to cut correctly. If I am doing words for a title, it is not that unusual that I have to cut it out more than once in order to get all the letters cut as they should be. The trick to getting a good cut is to make sure your paper is solidly adhered to the mat. If it loosens its grip, the paper will slide and the result will be all messed up. Lower case "e"s prove to be very problematic for the Cricut.

Another downside to the company is when you purchase images. I am used to sites - like Amazon - where, when you purchase a file that is downloaded to your computer, it is instantaneous. Not so with the Cricut company. When I purchased images, my experience has been that it takes anywhere from a few hours to a few days before the image shows up in my library as being one I own. This is very frustrating. When you are working on a scrapbook page, you do not want to have to put it on hold in order to wait for the image to become available for use. I've never run across this situation with any other company I download purchases from.

Another problem, I encountered when I set up my Cricut is that my security software warned me not to proceed with the installation because the Provo site had a history of being an unsafe site. I had to override my security software in order to install their software on my computer. I trust that I did not make a mistake when I did this. But, it is very unnerving when you attempt to install software from an established company and you get security warnings that the software is not safe.

I've had my Cricut almost a month. I have developed a love hate relationship to it. When it works, I love it. When it doesn't work, I hate it. It is far from being the machine it is advertised as being. At this point, I wish I had investigated other die cutting machines. But, at least I can use the Cricut for some things. I just have to be less exuberant in what I want to decorate my pages with. I now realize that all that glitters is not gold. And, for those wondering, I did get the replacement parts and, yes, the same problems with intricate cuts still occur with the same frequency as before. Why did I rate it a four with all these negatives? Well, customer service is positive. And, like I said, when it works, you really have something to be excited about. I just wish that the company was more realistic in their claims for the Cricut Explore Air.

I am including two photos for this review. One is of a chewed up cut, the Merry and Bright photo. The other is of a layered star die cut that worked well. This will illustrate what I am talking about with the Cricut machine.
