This is my fifth serger and, so far, my favorite. For the last five years I have mostly sewn on a Baby lock Imagine, and then a Baby Lock Evolve. These are excellent, very easy to use sergers, but very expensive. In addition, I found the Evolve, the one I used the most, had trouble going over thick seams. When the Evolve was getting serviced earlier this year I bought a vintage Juki (MO-104) and loved it but decided I needed a more modern one with differential feed and a rolled hem.

This Juki has it all. It is very stable--never moves around when you're serging--has a wonderful knife set-up that cuts through anything smoothly, and has a beautiful rolled hem, either two or three thread. It doesn't have the jet air threading of the Baby Locks, but threads easily. Everything is color-coded. The tensions are also very easy to set. I haven't had any problem with them at all.

I would advise you also to order a good, basic serger book because the instruction book with this Juki doesn't explain how to make the variety of stitches that are possible with it. With most of them you just have to tweak the tensions or stitch length or width, all easy to do on this machine. The electronic, high end machines (that go for a thousand dollars or more) will either make these adjustments automatically, or tell you how to do them on the screen, but I find a good serger book works just as well, and is much, much cheaper.

Do be aware that this machine does not have a coverstitch, or coverhem, as it is sometimes called. It's the two or three thread stitch used to hem knits. To get this stitch you need to buy an expensive, high-end combo serger, or a separate coverstitch machine.

There is a great review from a long-time serger user, however,I thought it might be helpful to give you the impressions from a first-time user.

First off, I ordered the machine "used-like new" from the warehouse deals. It was $368 and it came in its original package; the only thing that was missing was the original thread. I was disappointed at first, because I was hoping to see how it was threaded right out of the factory. It still had the grey thread tangled in the loopers which made me hang my head even lower, thinking "looks like the previous owner had issues with the stitch, threading, or loopers".
I bought the book Successful Serging: From Setup to Simple and Specialty Stitches in advance because I had read that the user manual is not all that user friendly. I was determined to brace the threading storm and get acquainted with the machine at once.

The user manual is actually not bad at all. I managed to get the Juki threaded correctly on my first try-the key is to make sure the loopers just cross after the lower looper snaps back in place. I also made sure the tension dials were at 1 when I threaded it and when it purred to life the overlock it produced was impressive. The lower looper need a slight tweak, but that was it.
The booklet has one downfall though: it does not speak about how to produce a flatlock seam; no biggie, I have the book and there are plenty of tutorials available online.

I decided to change it to a 3-thread overlock and it was a breeze. Threading the second time around was even easier, and in retrospect I was so apprehensive of something that turned out to be quite easy.

I had one of this model for 8 years and just purchased my second one. This is a great machine for small business & high volume home use. holds up to the workload, great speed & smooth sewing, comes threaded which helps for the first time owner in learning how to thread. very dourable. Great price for being such a workhorse. planning on buying another one soon! this is an awesome machine.

Bought this 4 yrs ago as a birthday gift. I'm very happy with this serger, especially having the differential feed, easy conversion to do rolled hems, fairly quiet and sturdy, doesn't move on the table. I looked at the pricey Baby Lock sergers, but they are very noisy, and "air-threading" is more of a gimmick than anything. (By saving $500-600, there's more to spend on fabric & specialty threads!) Spending some time with learning how to thread it, following the instruction book and having a Palmer-Pletsch serger DVD makes using it easy and enjoyable. So far it has done everything from silk scarves to home dec/upholstery fabric with ease and good results. A good serger reference book is very helpful (Nancy Zieman or Baker + Brown) for learning the different stitches and techniques, and making tension adjustments. Juki is a good reliable brand, and only routine cleaning and oiling is all that it has needed; no mechanical or electrical problems at all. It might be nice to have a 5-thread Juki, but this one is great and I'd buy it again!
