I got one for Christmas. It's purple; I love it! I was a complete beginner and it's been great because it's so simple, but works really well. So far ive only made cushion covers and curtains, but it's handled a wide range of materials, some quite thick, without any problems at all.
I'm really wary of them, to be honest. I bought one for my sister-in-law and it just felt so flimsy and lightweight that I was seriously worried about it. I don't like that the foot is attached to the machine either. Personally I'd avoid it and get a basic entry-level sewing machine but I'm happy to admit that I am undoubedtly biased as I sell sewing machines for a living!
I have one, and it's been surprisingly good. I feared it might be flimsy or not very useful, but I've hemmed things (include jeans), sewed a purse and various curtains. Didn't think it would be very robust (had a "proper" machine but had to leave it with an overseas move).
