Great Serger for the non-professional
Pros: Easy to thread, Easy to use
Cons: Removing one needle is not easy. Rolled hems only work well on certain fabrics.
This is a great product for the advanced home sewer. Definitely worth the money. A great addition for any home sewer. Read More at Epinions.com

Pros: Cheap, threads easy, good three and four thread over lock, and comes with a video.
Cons: Marginally adequate rolled hem, came with no oil, and low quality presser feet.
The 1034D Brother serger lacks overall quality. Though the over lock stitches are adequate, I would not recommend this machine to anyone, beginner or otherwise who can afford better. Read More at Epinions.com
