I started this poll, and I'm super happy to finally see it on Massdrop. Unfortunately, I already purchased one several months ago.
BUT, this machine is AWESOME! I highly recommend it. It does absolutely everything I ask it to and then some. The increased harp space is amazing; the quilting table which comes with it is huge. The thread cutter and leg lift are must haves (couldn't live without them now!) And, the fact that I don't have to use a thread stand or Thread Stem now for my cones is so fantastic! This machine sews and quilts like a dream. It's heavy - really heavy. Bouncing is quite minimal and vibration is the same (although I purchased a Janome pad for it to sit on which really helps)
I really recommend this machine. I was a Janome newbie, stuck with Singers before this. Actually almost purchased a Singer S18 (which IS the Janome 6500p FWIW, just licensed as a Singer) and so glad I did. It's smooth, quiet, and a work horse!
