Does anyone own a Slice? I'm looking into getting one because I don't scrap enough to warrent purchasing a Cricut. I'd like a basic opinion on it? I'm sure I'll only be cutting paper and maybe lightweight cardstock.

No, I don't recommend it. I have a lot of die cutter's.

I like the Slice. I honestly do. When I first I got it I called it my electronic punch machine. It worked great. Then it got wonky and even more wonky then just complete wonky. Type in MM Slice in your favorite search engine. Type in wonky and you will see this is a common problem.

The Slice Elite is out now and it's supposed to cut better. I have seen the cuts and it's not better. It's improved but not better. I heard some of the girls are having the same wonkiness.

If you have your heart set on a Slice buy the Pink Slice. Stay away from the original blue Slice. This is the one with problems. Buy the Slice Elite or Fabrique.

Some of the owners have stated using the hands free mat improves cutting.

My advice would be the Craft Robo Silhouette SD. The reason I recommend this one is that it's almost like the Slice. It takes SD cards so you can carry your own designs with you if going to a craft meet, crop or swarm. Then you have the added plus of cutting with several different varieties of software that are free such as Inkscape, or the Silhouette Studio. Also Silhouette's store has some of the most beautiful files to be found on the Internet. They are contracted with several of the major scrapbooking and design companies.

You can find deals for the Silhouette around the same price as the Slice nowadays.
