Editor comment

Janome 350E does have a few more editing options. But still it is not a huge step up from what PE770 has. 

The stitch quality is excellent on both the machines. There is very little to choose between, in terms of performance. Even though both machines are neck on neck in performance, the value for money tag goes to Brother PE770. The Janome 350E on the other hand will suit those who want more customization options.
