I have seen many threads comparing the cricut to the silhouette. I have a cricut e2( and thanks to all you enabling peas and hsn see my self on the somewhat distant future with a silhouette by my side).
I haven't seen( or completely missed the thread) any comparisons involving the other electronic die cutters available.
I did a little research( ie: googled), and found some others that are out in the crafting world. E craft, gazette, pazzles, wishblade and eclips were the cutters I found.
If you have or had one of these would you like weigh in and us the good and the bad?

I have a Pazzles. I run into similar cutting issues like I did with the Cricut Expression (paper tearing, can't cut intricut images), but not quite as bad. The images on the Pazzles website are not near as cute as the Silouette images..not even close! Plus you pay a fortune..you only have to spend $99 for the machine but then you have to pay the monthly subscription for two stinkin' years!
I have bought a Silouette and will end up selling my Pazzles soon.
I have the Gazelle, I love it because its 4 or 5 years old and the software I have allows me to convert just about every other machines designs except cricut's but there is so much out there that I don't need cricut designs and the company is very good at updating the software to meet the current needs without too much cost.So I have never felt like I was stuck with 5 year old designs. The only down side is that it has to stay with my computer and I can't take it to crops with me unless I take a laptop that has everything installed. But that's okay.
