I can say that it cuts really fast, it seems quieter, and smoother. The mat is huge, but so is the machine. What else do you want to know? OH yes it cuts chipboard, but you have to use the multifunction, and you need to cut it like three times. I've noticed that it can also cut really small letters without messing them up. My reg. cricut always messed up my 1" letters, NOPE that the EBUG. Okay what else do you want to know?
