Major Feature Differences Between Brother SE400 and LB6800PRW

Here we will be going the areas where these two machines differ.

Project Runway Branding

LB6800PRW comes with Project Runway Branding. Honestly, the branding doesn't make any difference in features of the two machines.

Rolling Bag

The more apparent difference between SE400 and LB6800PRW is the rolling tote bag that comes with the later. The rolling bag, may not a big deal if you don't move the machine around much. The bag will be handy for those who have portability as top priority. It is a beautiful bag by the way.

Editor comment

The difference between both the machines comes down to the rolling bag. If you ask me which machine would you buy. I would probably go with Brother SE400 as I normally won't move the machine around once it is set up. So the rolling bag doesn't have any purpose for me. If you want the additional portability offered by LB6800PRW, it won't be a bad option either. However, I feel the price is the key in this comparison.
