Default Silhouette Craft Cutter

Does anyone have/use their silhouette craft cutter? I think I just found something to wish for for Christmas. Of course this comes after I purchase a Cricut (which I am just now getting around to using).

Just wondering what you may like or dislike about the silhouette. Any info you can share would be appreciated.

I love my SD it seems like there are a lot more design files available, with the cricut you have to use a cartridge or get addititonal software, my friend sold her SD to me and got a cricut , then she saw all the things I was making and bought another silhouette....lol
just wish we could cut fabric or felt with it

I don't have one but I will say that if they ever get the Cricut perfected to cut fabric and felt they will have a huge increase in sales.
Think what we could do with a Cricut that could cut our fabric appliques etc.
You would think they would have figured that out and have it on the market.

Do you think the Cricut Gypsy can download stuff from the computer (like fonts, and clip art) I know that you can get updates from the computer and share other gypsy creations if they've been posted on a blog or such. Just wondering. It's about the same price as the Silhouette, but I don't have alot of storage space for another big machine.

I LOVE mine. Love Love Love it, wish I had more time to play with it.

I use it to cut stencils (for cakes) and cut vinyl for stencils for glass etching... and making fun cards.

I love the versatility of not having to buy cartridges. There are so many great images you can find online, it's SO easy to use.

No, the Gypsy cannot download anything other than existing cartridges that YOU own.

There is a program, I think it's called make the cut so that you can cut other things from your computer on the circuit, otherwise you are limited to the cartridges you have
