I have to strenously disagree with Ron about the Mat Maestro cutter! It NEVER would cut a different design in each corner from the library in the computer as the Eclipse does. You only had templates to choose from and all four corners were there. You could not choose a different cut for each corner!! As for the other options, there was no clip art available in a library and the only way letters could be cut was if you programmed each cut of each letter (in reverse no less!) into the computer and then it didn't work properly. The Eclipse has letters in the library and all you have to do is type in what you want and hit cut and it does. Don't try to make the Mat Maestro out to be more than it really is... a fraudulent piece of junk foisted on us with out and out lies of its' abilities!! Your machine will not cut a different style in each corner right from the library in the computer. This is the reason I had leased the machine in the first place. I was told by their sales rep that it WOULD cut different style cuts in each corner right from the library.
