78.2 The Singer Talent 3323S is a good machine for beginners or those who would like a relatively basic machine and don’t want to spend a lot of money.  Is not computerized and there is no LCD screen for choosing stitches and the like.  Owners like the fact that it is easy to use and it does a good job of what it is supposed to do.  It is short on features however and some more experienced seamstresses may find it limiting.  [REF Singer Sewing Machine Reviews]

Consumer Insights
It seems that most people that bought this machine are quite happy with it.  Most owners were looking for a basic machine and knew what they were buying – this helps.  Consumers mention that the machine is “attractive” as well as sturdy.  It also is quite basic; a plus for some who are looking for ease of use.  Stitches are considered to be quite good on this mechanical sewing machine and there are a number of comments praising the manual for its clear instructions and many illustrations and charts.

This machine does not come with a hard cover however and this has been noted by several owners although a few like the soft cover that is provided.  There are also a few comments – not many but a few – indicating that the machine tension and timing occasionally goes out and this can result in big looping stitches.

PROS
- Very easy to use
- Feels sturdy
- Several comments that the manual is very detailed and useful
- Lightweight & compact
- Automatic needle threader works well
- Presser feet can be raised very high
- Easy loading bobbin

CONS
- Doesn’t come with hard cover
- Feed dogs don’t drop down
- Doesn’t have a large number of stitches
- Some owners have reported instances of the timing going out (resulting in loopy stitches)

Consumer Ratings
There are two Singer Talent sewing machines, the Singer 3321 and the Singer 3323S.  The 3323S has several more features than the 3321 and it is a little more expensive.  The Singer Talent 3323S gets fairly average consumer reviews with a weighted score of 78.2.  Owners on Amazon seem to like it more than those on Joann.  The difference in scores is due to a few owners having timing issues with the machine on Joann, thus dropping the ratings from that site.

This is something of a “love it” or “hate it” sewing machine.  Many folks really like it and feel it is a good buy, but those that experience problems understandably dislike the machine.  A larger ratings sample may help in determining a more balanced score but at this time only 26 consumer ratings were found.  Please see the ratings in the table below:

 Source  Consumer Ratings  #Ratings
 Amazon  4.4 stars out of 5  14
 Joann  3 stars out of 5  9
 Costco  4 stars out of 5  2
 Beach Camera  5 stars out of 5  1

I have been having severe problems due to a timing issue resulting in poor pick up from the shuttle. It is not easy to adjust the timing!
