Brother PE 770 Drawbacks
The LCD touchscreen is black and white, so if you’re not familiar with your machine embroidery designs, you’ll need to have a color print-out or a color computer screen for more complex or smaller-scale designs–so you’re not looking at a blobby mess.
Brother machines work best when used with the optimal thread tension for your embroidery thread. Spend some time learning to adjust the tension, and your projects will thank you.
A common complaint among machine embroidery enthusiasts is that it’s a Windows-only playground.
Many people have found workarounds for Mac or Linux users, but you may need some extra computer skills to take full advantage of your embroidery machine’s computerized capabilities.
