AstraLux – customer reviews

Household sewing machine, AstraLux (model XP-45) has earned excellent reviews.
Advantages noted by customers. Inexpensive, simple to operate, performs many functions. Even a novice can understand in a few minutes. Not noisy. Takes all tissues.

One of the girls who left a review, use sewing machine repair and sewing clothes, sewing furniture covers, curtains, quilts and even for patchwork. Once she had overlock stitching process very crumbling furniture fabric, and the result is beautiful.

Reliable. All parts are metal. The foot pedal can not connect because there is a start/stop button.
In other reviews, the owners of which use a sewing machine for several years, is also say that it takes different material from organza to drape. The lines are perfectly straight. Thread a needle inserts itself. Included are many of the legs, which are easy to change. Like the hard case better protects the parts of the machine.

Disadvantages. A few people noted a small lamp for illumination. Dark. Have to put a table lamp.
Not very roomy compartment for small items.
One girl complained that often change the bed of the Shuttle. Changed already 4 times. What is it? A factory defect or bad luck? The rest of it is sewing machine is very happy.

Advantages: Cheapness, simplicity in operation, multifunctionality, hard casing. 12 paws included.
Minuses: Not yet revealed.
Note: Long chose a sewing machine to his wife. Very little information and reviews about cars. But on this model in particular, the reviews were. At first I doubted the firm, then I thought, why pay more for Brand. Especially now everyone is doing in China. I think I made the right choice.

Experience of use: several months
Pluses: I like it (it’s more functional than XP41, but it’s essentially the same). Comfortable, it takes all the fabrics. It can work without a pedal, with a start button, stop.
Disadvantages: There is a desire to replace a bulb backlight brighter.
Comment: It’s seriously worth comparing with XP-41, it’s simpler, think about how I …

Experience of use: less than a month
Pluses: Excellent sew. Not noisy. I’m new, for me it was like a spaceship, but figured it all out in a few minutes. Tried all the lines on the most «harmful tissues», everything goes out perfectly, never bothered, and yet I tried to «torment her» to check. All the paws that can only be bundled do not need to be bought. Change easily and quickly. I use it for everything: repair, sewing of furniture covers, clothes, curtains, quilts, etc., as well as for patchwork. Thread I use one kind, universal for all types of fabric-German, needles of two kinds and all. Do not be subverted and for each operation to select all. The line is perfectly flat, the Festoon superskaya gets, and over processed processed with the help of special. Paws furniture fabric, which crumbled terribly and the result was pleasantly surprised. I advise everyone, especially novechkam. Simple and functional, the lines are abound, very reliable, the details are iron everything, there is a start button (I did not even connect the pedal). Nothing superfluous and everything you need. I wanted 9500 of this brand, but then changed my mind and I’m happy-this car is better.
Disadvantages: No.
Comment: I recommend it to everyone.

Experience of use: more than a year
Pluses: I use the car for more than a year and a half, sewing from organza to drape, a large set of paws, everything is just at the level of the first class.
Disadvantages: One big drawback: after sewing 7-9 things you have to constantly change the bed of the shuttle. (Has changed already 4 times, can to me so carries ??? (Or a factory fault))
On a trifle: the mechanism of filling of the top thread has quickly broken, after replacement of problems did not arise.
Comment: On the price I can not say, because this model was given as a gift. For the time of using the machine, only the problem with the lodge was very upset. Everything else is super.

Experience of use: less than a month
Pluses: not noisy, many different lines can do, loop machine, not capricious, sick set of legs that change lego, even a thread inserts into the needle itself!
Disadvantages: a dark bulb
The comment: The machine very much is pleasant !!! I advise. You can take and 41st, the only difference is that the 45th has the ability to turn on the machine button and sew without a pedal

Experience of use: several months
Pluses: I use about a year, sews all kinds of fabrics easy and silently, the lines are very smooth. Good for quilting and free-running embroidery with smoothness because it has a speed regulator on dr. Machines so it does not work out. This is my first electronic swivel .Machine, before it used Dzhanome 394-the difference is obvious-it’s very easy to auto-unplug, the sound signal is also not superfluous, very fast and convenient filling of the upper thread, a lot of pawls in the kit, it is convenient to sew without the pedal from the button when decorating the products. dekorat.strochkoy.Ochen easy to switch the backlight on the case the machine-not every machine it is.
Disadvantages: a weak backlight bulb, you have to put an extra table lamp. I want to put the LED-but there’s no sale. The box for accessories, I would like to have more.
Comment: The purchase is very satisfied, now having entered the taste of using an electronic machine, I wanted with a lot of lines-somewhere around 500.
