I bought my sister one of these for Christmas for her scrap booking but, I've been itching to go over and test out how it cuts vinyl. You don't need any cartridges and it hooks right up to your PC like a printer. I'll report back when I get a little test session in.

No plotter but due to no place in town selling vinyl cheap I buy the vinyl sheets for this.

ah... it's good but about the "hands down"- that would be the point of a cricut or other vinyl cutter. it does a lot better at "staying in the lines" than I can. I use contact paper but I'm sure vinyl works fine too. it is more rewarding to make a nice one by hand but it really sucks to screw up and then have to start over.
