I agree that it is personal preference and what you tend to do most often. If you do a lot of 12x12 scrapbooking, an electronic die cut machine like the Cameo may be a great investment. If you make lots of cards or like using embossing folders, a manual cutter may be more your style. I have both a Silhouette (original, it was a handmedown from my mom) and a BigShot. I use my Big Shot almost every time I craft and only pull out the Silhouette for periodic projects. For me, I don't like the noise and having to find an outlet to use the electronic cutters. Plus, having 2 kids under 3 in my house, I like that I don't have to worry too much if my toddler wants to play with my Big Shot. He won't get hurt and he can't really hurt the machine either. But I find there are uses for both types.
