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 iBroidery.com. In addition to paid embroidery designs on iBroidery.com, you can also get many free to use ones. What this does is that, in addition to the 70 built-in 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. It just has a card slot, which is also present in SE400. So basically you will have to spend few more dollars for the software and card reader to import designs. On Brother SE400, you can save all such expenses thanks to USB connectivity. Even better thing is that, the USB port 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 from cost saving perspective in the long run. So our recommendations will be to go with Brother SE400. Still the final decision is yours.
