I have the three cricuts. Worked my way up to the C#2. I find myself using the C2 most always. each one has their own plus and minuses.
Another pro for the Silhouette - Cameo or Portrait: lots of free files all over facebook. And, every Tuesday, Silhouette offers a free file. Also on that day, they have a link to discounted files that cost 50 cents rather than 99 cents. And then, of course, there is storage. I live in a small house and the room where I do my crafting/sewing is also small. I have enough smaller items to store without having to store cartridges.
