My local scrapbook store just got one for people to come try out and it's AWESOME! It is very similar to the Genesis, just way cheaper! It's just a bit smaller and the cutting lights are LEDs that run off of 5 AA batteries. I love that it has the self-sharpening blade and the ruler measures to 1/16 of an inch! It was fantastic to see how precise the blade cut. I was in love and purchased one!
