Brother XR9500PRW Sewing Machine User Review
Sewing Machine Reviews Recommendation Level : HIGH
It is Brother XR9500PRW review time, folks. If you ask me to describe Brother XR9500PRW in one sentence I would say ‘Versatility at an excellent price’.It comes with a back-lit LCD screen for viewing controls. Its unique 55 built-in alphanumeric stitches come handy during lettering or doing basic monogramming. The over sized wide table lets you accommodate large quilt projects. It comes with an included hard cover as well.
Brother XR9500PRW comes with a 25 year limited warranty. Warranty is something that everyone will look for, while reading a product review. When it comes to customer support, there are very few brands that even come close to Brother, at least in the United States. It weighs just around 9 pounds, so you can consider it as light weight.
The accessory pack comes with:
- 3 bobbins
- 2 Screw drivers
- 7 presser foots
- Seam ripper
- Twin needle
- Ball point needle
- Needle set
- Cleaning brush
- Extra spool spin
User Manual & Set Up
Brother XR9500PRW is easy to set up. You can run it pretty much out of the box (not literally, you still need to spend 5-10 min for set up). The user manual is easy to understand and has almost all troubleshooting tutorials.
Brother XR9500PRW comes with a presser pedal. However, you can use the machine without the pedal, you can use the Start/Stop buttons instead.The speed control on this one of the best you could get from a sewing machine sold in U.S. You can go fast or slow as you would like. The drop in bobbin is another advantage. The needle up and down button on Brother XR9500PRW is another good feature. The LED light illuminates the work space pretty well.
This sewing machine has quiet operation. It is incredibly quiet. The LCD display is really helpful as it tells you which foot to use, so no guess work is required. Brother XR9500PRW can stitch 850 stitches/min, that is pretty fast for a medium level sewing machine. It may take couple of attempts to get used to the needle threader, it won’t be an issue once you get the hang of it. The thread cutter is another feature I really like.
