YES! I LOVE mine! It has done everything I have asked it to do! I had a cricut for a couple of years, but then I was given a cameo. MUCH, much better! The cuts are way more precise and I can use any image or any font on my computer--no cartridges required! It does require a computer, but I have a laptop so this isn't a problem for me. The program is free and great, and I love the upgraded version. There is a bit of a learning curve to use some of the features, but there are TONS of online tutorials, you tube videos. There's a facebook group to get quick questions answered and the Silhouette Blog has lots of fun projects, free images, and tutorials. So, yes, I vote for Cameo!
