I've only ever used the my Big Shot but I love love love it! Very easy to use and compatible with pretty much every die. I probably use it more than my cricut even!

I've been very happy with the Cuttlebug - it embosses beautifully!

Big Shot and Big Kick are the same machine.

Have never used a Big Shot, but love my spellbinder wizard for cutting and for embossing.

I know the Cuttlebug wasn't one of the machines you listed, but I love mine because I can use any die or embossing folder/template in it and it works beautifully.

Honestly I love my Cuttlebug because it cuts and embosses EVERY die that is out there quickly and easily. I have the BigShot, but find the Cuttlebug so much better. Plus it can be folded and transported easily.

I love the Big Shot. I love the ease of a manual die cutter. I'm not ready for all the button pushing, blade changing, too sticky--not sticky enough mats with the Cricut. I love simplicity. Not too mention the Tim Holtz Sizzix Dies. I do wish I would've have splurged and bought the Big Shot Pro though which cuts 12x12!

I truely think that I have all the cutting systems with the exception of the CB and Silhouette. I love the Electric Big Shot and I find that I use my Quickutz more now than ever.
It is so convient to load up the large platform which I believe you can put 18 2 x 2 dies on.
It embosses very nice and all at the push of a button no more cranking and tired wrist.
I do love my Cricut but I have so many Quickutz dies and don't plan on selling them ever.
Electronic cutting systems are nice but when you need tiny like the detailed Quickutz and
Cottage Cutz you can't always count on a consistent cut. I just did some very detailed mini books that had a manger with the baby Jesus and oh my it was tiny think of a 2 x 2 die with a manger, manger legs and straw, the other 2 x 2 die had the baby Jesus including the two very very tiny pieces to make the blanket. Now that is really really tiny. I had to use tweezers to glue everything together but so worth it. Everyone loved there gifts and appreciated the labor of love. HTH

I have the big shot. I love it. It will do dies from all of the manual die cutting systems along with all the sizzix dies. I use my Quickuts, cuddle bug dies and my spellbinders dies with and it works great. It will also emboss the spellbinders dies and cuddle bug folders.
