Although owners like the foot control, it is made of plastic and a few folks feel that it doesn’t look too sturdy and may break too easily.  Also the cover for the sewing machine is not hard plastic but rather a soft plastic material.  It is more of a dust cover and not something that will protect the machine from being hit or banged.  Owners indicate they would prefer a hard cover.
