IMO you're talking about 2 different animals with the Expression vs. the BigShot. I'm a HUGE manual die-cut machine supporter so of course I'm going to recommend the BigShot. I have a Rev and CB and don't really need a BS right now, but if and when one of them dies--I'd replace it with a BS.

Electronic die-cutters are the least expensive route to go overall. BUT--they can't emboss, you have to fuss with sticky mats(UGH), and the end product is not as 'finished' looking as a manual cut die-cut.

If you decide to go the electronic cutter route--I'd say go straight for the Silhouette SD. No carts to buy, CUTE downloadable shapes that are fairly inexpensive and cuts TTFs.

You will end up investing a TON of $$$$ in the Expression. ( unless you just buy SCAL and no carts but then why not just buy a Silhouette SD??)
