Brother SE350 vs SE400

Brother SE350 vs SE400 Comparison In Detail

You might be wondering what is the actual difference between Brother SE350 and SE400. Both are sewing and embroidery combo machines and they even look very similar. Yes, there are some graphic changes but still they look identical for the most part.

Main Feature Differences Between Brother SE350 And SE400

USB Port

If you look at the features one by one, there is absolutely no difference except for the USB port. Brother SE400 comes with a USB port which lets you import unlimited number of designs from In addition to paid embroidery designs on, you can also get many free to use ones. What this does is that, in addition to the 70 built-in embroidery designs that you get with SE400, you are getting access to literally unlimited number of designs on the internet. 

This is not the case with Brother SE350, because it doesn't feature a USB port. Instead it has an embroidery card slot to import designs, which is also present in SE400. In my opinion, importing designs using embroidery card is not as easy as you do with USB cable. Even better thing is that, the USB port on SE400 lets you update the machine software whenever a new update is available.

Editor comment

Other than the USB port, nothing separates these two wonderful machines. Actually Brother SE400 is the upgraded version of SE350 and the addition of USB port is a very good addition as it makes it easy to import the designs you wish from internet. So my recommendation will be to go with Brother SE400. Still the final decision is yours.
