Digital Information Advisor
The large back lit LCD screen attached to the 9960 Quantum provides stitch information including selected built-in stitch, stitch length and width settings, and recommended pressure foot. What’s more? It displays animation warnings on the probable errors the machine might have undergone.
Top Drop-in Bobbin System
In the Singer 9960 Quantum, the bobbin loads from the top. As a matter of fact, inserting the bobbin is rendered quite easy. Moreover, the clear cover attached to it makes it even more convenient to monitor the bobbin thread. Threading, hence, is as easy as a pie.

Customer Review and Scores
Recognized and cherished as one of the most trustworthy machines from Singer, the 9960 Quantum Stylist enjoys a feedback score of 4.5 out of 5 at the Amazon store, with effect to the reviews provided by an aggregate of 844 Amazon Verified customers (including Vine Customers). This is quite good a score and the feedback itself speak in eulogy of the product.
However, while assessing the customer reviews at Amazon, we happened to come across a few negative aspects about this product. Tension related issues, jamming problems, and issues with threading and bobbin have been brought up by a number of customers. However, the 9960 easily overshadows these snags with the plethora of superior features it has to offer. Moreover, following the instructions manual to the letter or watching the video tutorials have helped customers address their issues and hence this machine cannot be regarded as a problem piece, at all.
The final verdict is quite apparent from the review. We loved this machine and expect potential customers to cherish similar emotions about the machine, too. At $299, we find this machine a total value for money product.
