I have one. I didn't pay $119 though. I got it at J's during a sale, plus a percentage off coupon that is good on sale items. I think I paid around 50-55....can't remember. I love it. It took some getting use to because it is big and heavy. It sits to my left on my expedit shelves top. It cuts like butter. And very easy to cut even small 1/4 inch strips. Perfect straight lines.

I have it too. It was bought before Christmas on sale at J's. I don't remember the price either but think it was around $50 or so. It's a great trimmer.

Was this an online purchase? or is it carried in the stores?

Thanks.

I saw this at J's for $60 with a coupon, it looks like a really great trimmer! Are other people that have it pretty happy with it? Pros and cons?

Wow! That looks fantastic, though I think I'll be looking for it with a coupon too.

I think this is going to be my next trimmer since mine is on the way out. Going to see if my J's has it and use a coupon. Thanks!

It doesn't have measurements for a 6 inch cut which is frustrating for me, it also takes up even more room than the cutterpillar, the base is insanely large! It does cut straight though.

I have it also and love it. I bought it at J's during a sale plus used a coupon for an additional 25% off purchase and got it for 54.00 plus tax.

I got it the week it debuted at J's for 50 off I think. It cuts wonderfully. I used a 6 piece of paper to put a mark with a sharpier on the plastic where that cut is, since it's in the "gap" of the fold. I find that to be a good solution and I don't mind the trade-off of the 6" issue for al the good it does otherwise.

I have really enjoyed this trimmer immensely and highly recommend it. I even flew this bad boy with me to St. Louis in January. TSA checked it out coming and going, but it got up there and back all in one piece.

I bought it. Hated how bulky it was (even when folded) and how flimsy the plastic guide was. Took it back. It was a good deal after using the 50 coupon but still.

I got it when it first was released (CHA summer?) with a coupon at Archiver's. I am very pleased with it. The only other trimmer I have owned that cut this precisely was the Making Memories one (can't remember the exact name).

I am extremely satisfied with it. No, I have not yet been able to afford a Genesis. Still on my wish list.

Got one in November at J's for like $53? I really love it. The only negative for me is the gap in measurements between 5-6 inches, but I've gotten used to it and I can eyeball where to cut there.

I got one a few months ago and really like it. I didn't like where it folds but figured out the measurements. Cuts very well!

I bought mine at Js in the store. The biggest drawback for me was the lack of the 6" measurement, but I've made a small mark on the trimmer base and it's working out fine. I love everything else about it. Sometimes I keep it folded in half on my work table so it doesn't take up quite so much room. Even toted it to a crop last week. It was a bit bulky to carry but I loved having it with me.

It looks great, and I am sure it cuts like butter. However, my last two trimmers were bulky, and I have learned my lesson. I do have a dedicated craft space, but the big trimmer is not for me. A small, lightweight trimmer works best for me personally, so I won't be getting this one.


Happiness looks good on everyone!
