84.5 Consumer ratings for the Brother ES2000 are quite good – but not as high as some other Brother sewing machines.  It is not too expensive however and folks really like it for its ease of use, light weight and host of included accessories. It is a good machine for beginners and it comes with 77 stitch functions and a 25-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.  [REF Brother Sewing Machine Reviews]

Consumer Insights
As mentioned this is something of a love it or hate it machine.  Many owners new to sewing are very happy with the machine and comment on how very easy is it to use as well as how good the instruction manual is.  However some folks have issues with the thread tangling on the bobbin and getting the thread tension right.  In addition, some consumers report difficulty in sewing through thicker materials.

Some say that this is a similar sewing machine to the Brother CS6000 but without some of the bells and whistles.  The ES2000 is very lightweight and easy to carry and it comes with a host of stitch options (77 to be exact).  Folks also like the easy manner by which one can change presser feet and there are a number of comments regarding the reasonable price of this machine (it can be found online at some outlets for under $150).
