Because I had a 50% off coupon, I bought a Slice. In comparison to my Cricuts and Silhouette, it ranks 3rd. But, it has some great advantages. It is completely portable and takes up little space...so I can take it camping with me. I like the design cards. The biggest disadvantages are that it only does smaller cuts (up to 5 inches) and that it is hard to position the next cut so you don't waste a lot of paper. I like the design cards and have bought 3. I have found you can't cut everything in the size you want--only the sizes programed on the design card. It is really handy for small cuts when you are in a hurry!
