I can give you my opinion. I'm a machine junkie, and own all of the top brands: Cricut Expression, Cake, Imagine, Gazelle, KNK, eCraft, Silhouette SD, and a Cameo. If I had to give them all up except for one, it wouldn't be my Cameo.
I really love the Cameo. There's no other machine on the market that has the "print 'n cut" accuracy, and I can cut cereal weight material without any issues. The software "Silhouette Studio" is a breeze to use, so user friendly. I don't think you'd be disappointed.
