Love my Puzzles!! I believe it was one of the first machines on the market. The $99 and two year subscription is for the craft room. There are a lot of videos in the craft room showing how to do various thing with the machine. There is also a users group on yahoo that is really great if you have any questions.

I have the Pazzles. I agree the store is somewhat underwhelming, however the new Pazzles can cut SVG files so if you can download those you have a wider choice. With the subscription however, there are numerous how to videos and then access to the special files the DT's create, and the file designs are getting much better. Klo offers free classes on Sunday where she goes over techniques, projects etc. It is very informal and she is always helpful to answer questions. Of course you can always design your own files with software.

Thanks ladies, I appreciate the information. I was excited that kate cuttables had a few files, hopefully more artists will come in and really make it a destination spot for art. I just want a good cutter, most of the files I lean towards are at svgcuts, so hopefully the store will keep growing.

I considered buying it at their GASC booth with the same deal a few years back, but then I looked at their cutting file images and did the math.
I didn't like most of their designs, and I really didn't like the final cost of the machine with paying for designs I wouldn't use.
It is a good machine, and if you like their designs, it would be a decent deal, but before you buy, make sure their designs are to your taste.

One of the things I really like about the Puzzles is that I can scan, resize, and cut designs. You are not limited to what is in the Craftroom. Any clip art will work. I scanned and cut some holly for Christmas LO's I did and a devil for a friend. Planning to cut an In 'N Out logo and a Meteor Crater logo for my next album.
