There is not much to find fault with this unit. That is when it comes to the actual unit itself. When you look at the support, in particular, the instruction manual, you will find some areas where this unit could be better. The manual is hard to interpret and not at all user-friendly.

In spite of the manual’s poor instruction, when you look at the efficiency and precision you get by investing in this model, it is clear to see that it one of the best options on the market today.

Pros:

  • Setup and installation are easy

Review

USCutter is one of those names that comes with a stellar reputation and a well-loved product amongst many crafting businesses. This unit is fitted with a feature that will help elevate your small business productivity and quality of the product. The features that help ensure that this brands reputation stays intact are:

  • Designed with 750g max downforce pressure

  • Comes with media catch basket

This vinyl cutter is one of the absolute most versatile units available. It is built to last and gives the user a precision of detail when it comes to cutting, which is absolutely astonishing. The unit itself, combined with the high quality easy to use software, will have you understanding quickly why we knew that this was one of the units we had to tell you about.

Once again, this is a model that has very little wrong with it. However, if you are a person that lives on Apple computers, then this model’s inability to be used with that operating system is a definite drawback.

If you are not a Mac user, then the one flaw of this unit is taken away, and you can easily opt to make this fantastic vinyl cutter your business go-to cutter.

Pros:

  • Precision cutting
  • Versatility
  • Durability
  • Superior overall cutting ability
  • User-friendly software

Cons:

  • Software not compatible with MAC OS

There are a few things that we need to mention. Take some time with the software as it is not as user-friendly as the unit itself. Other than that, the unit, unlike other models, is not fitted with wireless capability.
