Cricut® Explore Air™ Wireless Design-and-Cut System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 163.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from SO MANY POSSIBILITIES I received this as a Christmas gift and am already AMAZED by all the things this puppy can do. Once I took the time to play with the Cricut Design Space App, I began pumping out cards, vinyl decals, and other creations. This is definitely a product I would not think to buy for myself (as a poor college student) and I know I will use it for years to come. The only reason I rate this as a 4 star instead of 5 is due to the multitude of in-app purchases and relatively few "free" fonts and images. In spite of this, the program allows for images and files to be uploaded, allowing for a little more frugality if you're able to use your own images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I waited YEARS to invest in a Cricut and I'm so glad that I did, as this particular model has many great features and you don't have to buy a cartridge to use it, but you can use those you have if you have an older Cricut. Once you become accustomed to the design space and learn how to do basic designs, it frees up enough time to totally make the investment worth it. I purchased mine in October to make decorations for our annual Halloween party and was able to complete 3 projects in less than an hour. IT WAS AWESOME! My kids have also used it for their school projects, and next year, being more familiar with it, I will use it for Christmas cards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from USB Cable instead of Bluetooth I noticed that someone mentioned that you MUST have a Bluetooth PC/laptop to connect the machine to your PC/laptop. That is not necessary, if you have an available USB port on your PC/laptop. I don't have Bluetooth, but still wanted the Air one-step print/cut functionality, so I looked at the full online manual before purchasing. The Air comes with a USB cable in the box, and has a USB port on the back of the machine. The manual's first setup step in 'Plugging in the Machine' describes connecting the Air to PC/laptop using the USB cable. This should take care of the 'no Bluetooth' concern, though the machine will not be wireless with this configuration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Even better than the original! I have the original Cricut and was excited when this came out. My kids told me that I didn't need a new one. My oldest used my existing Cricut for many of her school projects and room decorations. I had read the reviews saying that it was difficult to use, but I figured I'd give it a try anyway. When I received the Cricut Explore Air, it took only a few minutes to set it up and complete the sample product. My daughters were amazed at the writing and print and cut features and so was I. I post my projects on Facebook and receive comments all of the time! This was definitely worth the money (I got it on sale). I am planning to purchase a second as my oldest has requested one for her birthday/Christmas. (She has my old one with her at college). What a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing precision. I bought this machine early March 2016. I had a specific project in mind and it didn't take very long to learn how to make what I was thinking. The precision cuts are amazing and although there is a definite learning curve with Design Space, it's not too hard to figure out. In the meantime, I've discovered an entire world of things I want to try and there is amazing support out there to help you learn (Facebook groups, YouTube videos, My only issue is the promised bundle from JoAnn's isn't what is advertised online. I emailed JoAnn's and got a short reply but it's not addressing the answer. So I'm going to try to get that sorted out this week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional & Fun Machine We bought this machine for work and it's great! I personally own one and I convinced my company to do the same for projects around the office. There is a certain thrill watching the machine cut/write, and seeing the final product is satisfying. It works well and does so with various materials which is what sold me the most for getting this for my company. I have a graphic design background so I use it differently than a regular user. My process includes creating custom files and then uploading them into the Design Space. As for the experience of using actual Design Space templates, I cannot speak for that but I assume they work well. Great steal for this product and I look forward to using it everyday.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still Not Working I received my Cricut as a gift. I still can't use it. They call it "wireless" but what they don't tell you is that it's wireless ONLY over bluetooth. My desktop does not have bluetooth so I am STILL trying to get the equipment I need (a bluetooth dongle ...and not just any one will work) to use my Cricut. I hope that after spending more money one of these days it will work! I have recommended they change the box labels or, better yet, make it work over wifi.
