Summary: I just started using my brand new Singer Conference 7470 and by my 3rd project, it started acting up. I found out a lot of other people are having the same issue with this same machine.
Issue: needle keeps hitting the bottom of the bobbin plate!
Summary: I was very excited to be able to buy a new sewing machine after 30+ years. I chose Singer due to its reputation and my familiarity with their products. I got my Confidence 7470 in January and after 6 hours of straight stitch usage the thread jammed and I was unable to resolve it.
Summary: I just took my Singer 7470 out of the box and on initial use the machine is making a friction noise. I already own a Singer 7470 and that has never made such a noise. The reason for this second 7470 is that it is a Christmas gift and now I can leave the old 7470 with the feed dogs dropped and use it...
Summary: Although I purchased this in 2008, I didn't start using it until 2013. I don't know why I waited, as it truly is an easy machine to use. Although there are a lot of stitches and functions, there aren't too many to make me overwhelmed.
Pros: Good Value, Easy To Use, High Quality, Versatile
Summary: worked great for one garment and then got very noisy, no auto speed control, a reverse option that you need to keep depressed in order for it to work. the lettering is legible. love the auto tension should come with more presser feet
Summary: I've been enjoying my machine since I've gotten it (not long ago). I like the many computerized. stitches it has and that I'm able to change to a different stitch right in the middle of a project, if I want, with no hesitation. It's a really great machine.
Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality
