I used to own a White 3300 embroidery machine and really liked it. It came with a Disney card and some preloaded designs and fonts. I purchased a device that allowed me to download designs from the internet to a blank card and was very happy with it. The device was about $100 and the card was also about $100. I bought the White machine at Joann's for $500. It is nice to have a machine that uses USB for downloading designs. I now have a Brother PE780D which uses USB or a card. It was $1000. Go with whatever you can afford you can always upgrade later. Good luck.
