Great price! I wonder if sales have been low. The reports on the new machine haven't been stellar.

I think Cricut has been stepping up their game, and they've done a ton of marketing for the new Air 2. If their new design space software performs as advertised it'll be the number one choice hands down. When I was looking at the Cricut or Cameo (I think it was the prev. version of the cameo), I was torn between the (at the time) better Cameo software, or better cutting of the Cricut for thick materials. The cricut won out.

I went with the Cricut last year for the better cutting and price but really haven't been a fan of this web based plugin. I really only do custom stuff from vector files and it's been a pain to work with.

The learning curve is much steeper on Silhouette than Cricut. I have both machines. Although you'll lay out much more money with the Cricut to purchase designs (in the long run), I think their marketing machine is significantly better. And although the Silhouette offers the option to do much more that doesn't make up for the cumbersome software and machine quirks which require a lot of fiddling to function as expected.

I own or have owned cricuts, silhouette cameos, and the Zing (a K n K cutter). I use third party software. IMO there are plusses and minuses for each of the cutters. I prefer the 3rd party software for any of the machines. Cricuts turned off the ability to use third party software with their machine in effect limiting my cutting options to them only. I no longer buy cricuts machines and have been very happy with my other cutters.

I'm glad to hear you've found a good solution. There are numerous options and much of this depends on use and budget. I have an Adobe Creative Cloud membership and I still enjoy the Cricut. I have never tried third party software but then again if I'm spending nearly $300 on a device the proprietary software should be user friendly. And I've spent far more on my toys. But I think that's where personal preference comes in. I've heard the same argument about sewing machines and my sentiments remain the same. Though that's a completely different can of worms which baffles the mind. ;-)

I've ordered one, but amazon hasn't shipped it yet. Has anyone bought it at this low price and received their yet?

How exactly are you using Adobe CC with Cricut? Are you just creating the files in Photoshop or illustrator and importing into the Cricut program to cut?

I don't use it with Cricut. Sorry if I confused you.
