Looking through the previous reviews, they seem to range from Love it, to Hate it! Most of those that dislike it, seem to have been surprised by its size.
First thing I would say to anyone thinking of getting a new Die cutting machine, is do your research. Have a look on the Sizzix website, and get the details for the machine. It is big, and it is heavy. You will NOT want to be moving this beast around. It weighs around 40lbs, and its footprint is almost 26" long by 23" wide, including the handle. IF you have a place you can set it up and leave it, then this machine has to be the way to go. Its a once & forever upgrade, which is why I bought one. I was fed up with dies/folders etc getting bigger than my current machine would take. I figure that with a 12 1/2" opening,(the 13" opening quote is not correct!)and a 14" long by 12" wide cutting area, I will never want anything bigger. Despite what one or two people say, this machine WILL cut every die on the market, from wafer thin ones to the supersized ones.I have used the old Red,Yellow & Green Sizzix steel rule dies,Quickutz dies,Tim Holtz dies(including the long Strip dies),Cuttlebug/generic embossing folders, Fiskars Texture Plates, Memory Box, Cheery Lyn,PTI,Nestabilities as well as Brass Embossing stencils.You just have to try out different plate/shim combos for the Non Sizzix stuff.
What you should do, is look around for the BIG SHOT PRO Kit, which comes with the BSP AND all the plates necessary for whatever you may want to use it for. It is easy to operate,and its weight & footprint help to make it so easy- there is no way this machine will move or slide around in use.The plates all have info on them as to which you need for different dies and folders.

I purchased this machine from Joanns more than 16 months ago when it first came out but I see the price has not changed much. I really like this machine for ease of use and the fact that I can use 12" paper but the killer is that an appropriately sized multipurpose platform was never included with this very expensive machine. I called Sizzix when I first purchased the machine and they assured me that they would be releasing a multipurpose platform for the Big Shot Pro but they took a long time to do so.

It appears the Sizzix Big Shot Pro Accessory - Solo Platform, Shim & Wafer Thin Die Adapter UPC841182060457 Dimension 14 1/4" x 12 1/4" x 5/8" is now available at $35+ for this machine. Until I buy this accessory I am using the multipurpose platform from my smaller Sizzix 655268 Big Shot Cutting-and-Embossing Roller-Style Machine. It does mean however that I can't use the larger wafer-thin dies until I get the accessory.

This machine is very heavy and has a large footprint but if you have the room for it, is a worth-while purchase because it cuts quietly and as smooth as butter. I'm sticking to this machine and my Cricut Expression because they can both handle 12" paper.

I have had mine for 1 year now and I use it, along with my digital cutter, (Silhouette) for everything.

Pros:
1. Quality product, built well. Very heavy and sturdy. This thing doesn't move when you're rolling heavy materials through!
2. Cuts about anything. I love that I can also use the steel rule dies from Ellison, Accucut, Accucraft, etc... which cut through multiple layers. The ability to cut 6 layers of fabric, 4 layers of foam, or multiple layers of textured card stock makes large projects quick and painless. I recently ordered my first custom die which I am really excited about (but not the price of $150).
3. Hundreds of dies for cute original boxes, bags, 3-D cards, embellishments, etc...

Cons:
1. Too big and heavy to pack up and take to a card party, but that's why they call it "Big" Shot "Pro". When you're carrying it, you can barely walk through a door way without skinning your knuckles. I enlist my husband to do the heavy lifting of this machine. (Seriously)
2. Cutting pads cost a lot when you need to replace them as often as I do. I'm going to have to find a DIY solution for this.
3. You have to buy the adapter pad, shim, and wafer kit to cut the Sizzix and other brand's thin dies.

Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. I have seen this machine for as low as $290 including shipping. I paid $325 a year ago, so it's holding it's value well.

The fact that the center roller is covered with a plastic casing makes this machine very easy to use. The casing gives you something to hold on to while you crank the handle which takes a lot of the pressure off of your shoulder while you use the hand crank. I only had one problem with this - the scoreboard dies either do not make a clear enough impression for the score marks to show up on paper or it cuts right through the score marks. However, this problem could be more related to the die rather than the machine. I think some of the newer scoreboard dies assume you are using chipboard whereas the older ones assumed you were using paper (just eyeballing the dies, it looks like the blade depth might vary for the score lines). It does indeed take more more space than the big shot but if you really love the bigger dies, this is a very affordable option compared to the Accu-Cut machine. I've tried both and I actually find this one to be much much easier to use.
