Customer Review and Scores
The LS2125i enjoys a feedback score of 4.2 out of 5 at Amazon.com which is a pretty decent score for a machine intended for the total beginner. Reviewed by a total of 670 amazon customers, the machine has some great reviews to its name.
While reflecting on the customer reviews, we have come across a few negative aspects about this machine. Some of the customers seem to have issues with threading- the thread gets caught in the wheel which unthreads the needle frequently. Another problem faced by the customers is with the lower thread tension. The plastic bobbins associated with the product causes it which can be eliminated using metal bobbins of the same size. By the way, at a price as low as $78.98, issues as paltry as these ones can be expected which are easily overshadowed by the surfeit of features this machine has to offer.
The final verdict, if asked, can be zeroed in on as a total go for. For a machine that has been designed for beginners, the LS2125i has some great features to its name which is a case rare enough with machines of its kind.
