I bought this machine about 7 months ago and have been THRILLED with it since day 1!! It cuts like a dream and is a true work horse when it comes to die cutting for multiple cards and classes. As I get older there is no way I can cut like that on my manual machines without neck and shoulder pain. It is now my #1 go to machine for cardmaking, treat boxes, scrapbooking, acetate, vinyl, fabric, felt and so much more. I would recommend this machine in a heartbeat.
I broke my wrist a year ago in February and have struggled using my Big Shot since. I dabbled on YouTube to find a suitable replacement and finally selected the Gemini due to its simplicity and remarkable results. Although the machine is heavier than the Big Shot, it has produced impressive results with a very complicated die which I actually replaced since it never seemed to cut regardless of how many shims and passes through the Big Shot. I highly recommend this for those who do a lot of die cutting. I'm concerned about the layers required for the Stampin' Up 3D embossing folders, but will try based on YouTube videos from Crafter's Companion.
