I'm sorry if this has been posted but I can't find it, so if so can you please direct me to it.

I have the regular cricut, have had it for years. love it! I want a 12x12 cutting machine so I bought the
Imagine. Not my favorite so I sold it. I am now trying to decide between the Expression or Expression 2. I know there
are many different features but what do you think as far as an everyday go to machine?

Thanks for you help!!

I have the Big Bug or Expression and just got the E2 for Christmas. I haven't played with it but have seen many good comments and was really drawn to it because of the all the additional features. I LOVE my Expression and believe that no matter which machine you chose, you'll be in love too. Love There are various options with both so I guess it would all depend on what you are really looking for in the machine. You won't go wrong, saying as a Cricut LOVER with either, I honestly don't believe. Good luck on your decision and be sure to let us know what you chose. Smile

I have the E & love itLove. I don't have the E2, but have read on the board how some people absolutely LOVE it & others- not so much. I would suggest going on YouTube & checking out some videos on both to see which one is more your style. HTH

The E2 has the newest technology in it and has all the features of the original E and then some. The biggest difference (I think) is that the E2 doesn't use a keypad like the original Cricuts. All the controls, settings and images are in the various screens of the E2.

There are also some videos and info over on cricut.com.

E2 all the way - the touch pad is SO much better and it cuts way better

Do you think either of them work better on fabric? My main goal is to use it for fabric.
thanks.

They probably work the same on fabric.



On another note for those reading this that still have 3rd party software I bet the E2 wont work on that. That is what I keep my E for. Although I haven't used it at all since I got my imagine. I did print on some iron on material in the imagine that I used on fabric t shirts. :) lol that was fun

I have both the E and the AE2 and seem to use my E the most. I'm sure if I worked with the AE2 more I would grow to love it.BigGrin

I have the E and the E2...I would say it depends a lot on how you are going to use it. If you plan on using a Gypsy or CCR then the E is going to be a great machine. If you are not going to use either design tool I would get the E2 because of the screen you have the ability to see more of what you are doing. I love both of my bugs but probably dont get the full use out of the E2 because I use CCR and my Gypsy for everything.

I would watch HSN tonight at 11 central time. They will have the E2 and you can do 5 flex payments and you get stuff with it.

I liked hearing from those of you that have both. I think it just confirms what my

feelings were already...but that's not surprising as I read and value opinions on here

and keep up with the launches and people's initial impressions. Thanks so much!
