Prior to looking at any reviews on sewing machines there are a number of questions that need to be asked. Need to know about what a user is planning to use the machine for what type of projects.
What is user willing to pay, small budget no need to look at high end machines. Could consider second hand machine, but sure to get warranty. Straight and zig zag are the two stitches that will allow you to do just about everything you want to do on a machine. Can you adjust stitch length? What attachments do you need, basic presser foot, button hole, zipper foot, blind hem foot? If you are planning to quilt you will want a walking foot and free hand embroidery foot. What type of fabric will be used for your project? Make sure the availability of parts and repairs.
There is no such thing as one sewing machine that is suitable for every person.
