Husqvarna Sapphire 830. I've had it for 4 years and it's still running beautifully. At first I was intimidated by it being digital, but now I can't imagine going back to a basic model. I hate to admit this, but I haven't done any maintenance on it ever and no problems as of yet. Knock on wood! For the most part I always use top stitch needles. I have found that they pierce the fabrics better causing less broken needles. Plus I don't have to change my needle for actual top stitching which is a bonus.
