One reviewer said that the machine copes with any fabrics. He and a linen shirt hemmed, and repaired sleeve leather jackets.

The other guy purchased it for sewing canvas. Coped with no problems. Also, made soft and warm rugs for the dogs and alter them collars. The machine was not adjusted, remained the «store settings».

Experience of use: several months
Pluses: Light (6 kg), compact, very easy to use (figured out without instructions), does not work noisily, does not jump on the table at the highest rpm, only vibrates a little. The stitches are very qualitative. Copes with any fabrics and a linen shirt sewn and a sleeve for leather jackets to repair it turned out. Well, of course, the price. The machine without the bells and whistles, which naturally can not affect its reliability. I removed the plastic case: the supporting frame is completely cast!
Disadvantages: maybe because of inexperience, my hands are crooked, but sometimes the upper thread gets tangled from the bottom and gets stuck in the conveyor. Most likely this happens at low revs. (False alarm: my hands are crooked, not properly wound spool :) in instuktsii a little not understood! Thread is not confused !!!)
Comment: I chose the manufacturer’s firm for a long time, and the model. All cars, even the most expensive ones are assembled in China, Taiwan, etc., so attention should be paid to the manufacturer’s assembly base! This company: China-China, i.e. And components and assembly in China. On their company site there is a video about the company, the process of assembly, etc., very interesting, other big companies have not found it. The time passed when Singer was eternal, now only the name remains, and the quality of the production is less the same. First wanted to take the Brother Comfort 25A, like and people praise and operations a lot. However, having called several shops and chatting with consultants, it turned out that she was very capricious about materials and often met a marriage. 4 out of 5 consultants advised AstraLux. Please note that on the corporate site there is a black list of sellers !!!!!

Experience of use: less than a month
Pluses: You do not have to rack your brains how to use. Low cost. Do not knock on sewing. I liked the packaging. The equipment is not bad. Bought and shej. Only the thread you need to buy)))
Disadvantages: An incomprehensible cover. Although, if the table is constantly on, it will come off dust. The only difficulty is that it does not sew without light. Done in 1 minute. I would like to have all the hands written in the instructions.
Comment: I bought it for sewing tarps. My wife did not give her computer for such sewing. Because Sewing was not much, but the power of the machine decent, then coped without problems. Then I sewed soft mats for dogs, cut them in size. Everything is fine. Neither of which did not regulate after the store. All the fabrics sewed with «store settings». I liked it very much. Maybe someone needs hundreds of different lines. This machine does not. But straight and zigzag sews confidently. There are still some, I have not tried. Yes, I also sew a buttonhole and sew on buttons. For the man — just right. I plan to stitch the covers on the car seats. The machine justifies its money more than 100%!

Experience of use: less than a month
Pluses: Good model. Without superfluous navorotov, well holds a line on different fabrics. Detailed description of work and settings.
Disadvantages: has not yet discovered
Comment: Before this was Singer 118 with a horizontal shuttle of 18 operations. Took up with the settings. Astralux 100 is simple in flocks, low price is everything for home sewing and clothing repair.
