ok,..what's the deal or is this just clever marketing?

There really isn't a 4 Series although some people are calling the

auroras the 4 Series. There's an 8 Series, a 5 Series and a 3 Series and

this summer there will be a 7 Series. The higher the series number, the

more features you can expect.

There are a lot of differences.

One the 4's are full sized machines. They are BSR compatable and also have

adjustable pressure foot pressure and the ability to hook your computer up

to it for embroidery, and are combo machines.

The 4's also have the full sized one piece feet, while the 3's have snap on

feet.

The 4's have the knee lift, while only the 380 has it.

The others its optional .

The 300's are lighter, (many people like them for

traveling/classes/workshops)

The 330 is basic.

the 350 offers more

380 offers more then the two others.

Price is different.

the 300's start at 900 or so where I live in NY.

The 4's started around 2000 and went up.

Im sure there is a large difference in the stitch selection too.

HTH.

Im sure others can add to this list.

In marketing sense, the current models line up like this (in order of

least to greatest):

Bernina 1008

B 215

3 Series

aurora 450

5 Series

artista (the 7 Series will fall into this position come July)

8 Series

Basically, the higher the model the more stitches, included accessories,

and convenient features you receive.

The lowest end model, the 1008 features an AC motor, while all the rest

offer the DC motor. We have touch screens on the higher end models (8

Series, artista and B580), moving into a one touch system with

navigation keys (B550 & 530), and then into a one touch system

(buttons), and finally into the stitch lever on the 1008.

The lighting system changes between models significantly too; the 8

Series sport 30 LEDs, diminishing to 12 LEDs on the 5 Series and further

still to 8 LEDs on the 3 Series and to simply LED lighting on the B215,

while the artistas and remaining aurora model showcase the CFL lighting.

The only models with fully automatic needle threading are the 8 Series

models, while all except the 1008 offer automatic needle threading.

Some of the other features the higher end models offer that the lower

ones do not are things like a needle minder, thread sensors, automatic

thread cutters, onscreen buttonhole measuring, and an electronic foot

control.

I have seen the Bernina 1008 and thought they were from the last century or so, I didn't realize they were current models. Huh, they look so 1990. I always thought that the Bernette was the low end models.

The 1008 model is still popular with schools and with those wanting a

mechanical machine. I was really only attempting to list the "true"

Bernina models, iow, those made by Bernina, but in that respect I failed

to mention the activa 210 and the Industrial 950.

Excellent summary, Kari!

The one feature that I adore on the higher end models that isn't present on some of the lower end models is adjustable presser foot pressure.> and convenient features you receive

Isnt the 630 still part of the group or has it now offically been

discontinued?

Compact Fluorescent Lighting which was a step up from what the machines

had offered up til this point. CFL was more like a true or daylight type

of lighting.

Yes, it's still a part of the line. It would have been included with the

artista models in my listing.

I have a Bernina 1010 which is a mechanical machine and I bought it in 1990

( I think). It was one model before or after the 1008. I still have it

though I use it very rarely.

I have both a bernina 1010 and a 1008. Even as being a Bernina tech I really seldom sew anything other than stitch samples. I really like these machines and can't imagine having time to sew anything very elaborate as I never have a minute when I don't have some type of machine to work on. I would part with one but I can't decide which I like better. Oh well. Of course the 1008 is much newer but that doesn't really matter to me. It was just a deal that was too good to pass on.
