Brother CS770 Review In Detail

Brother CS770 has nice variety of stitch options. The machine is very user friendly, there are no complicated buttons and controls.

Editor rating


Brother CS770 is an electronic sewing machine, not a computerized one. In a computerized sewing machine, you will get features like the sewing start/stop, speed control slider, programmable needle up/down etc, which are absent in CS770.

Brother CS770 has 40 built-in stitches including 5 one-step buttonholes. 77 stitch functions are available on the machine. LCD display is provided for viewing selected stitches and stitch settings. The maximum stitch width is 7mm and stitch length is 5mm. The display is pretty basic though, it is not backlit. The automatic needle threader threads the needle for you. Top drop-in bobbin makes bobbin changing effortless.

There is a manual thread cutter on the side of the machine which lets you cut the remaining thread without using a scissor. Free-motion quilting and free arm sewing is possible on Brother CS770. A work light is also provided. CS770's motor is capable of delivering 850 stitches/min, which is on par with its competitors. The machine is pretty lightweight, it weighs just 11 lbs. It comes with a 25 year warranty cover as well.

Ease of Use

Brother CS770 has nice variety of stitch options. The machine is very user friendly, there are no complicated buttons and controls. The stitch quality is very good. Overall build quality is also decent. Being lightweight, you can easily carry it to sewing classes.

Drawbacks

Being an electronic sewing machine, Brother CS770 falls somewhere in between a mechanical and computerized sewing machine. Yes, it has an LCD display to view the stitch settings but it misses out on some key features like the programmable needle up/down, sewing without the foot pedal etc. So computerized sewing machine fans will have to look for something else like the Brother CS6000i.
