As many of you know I have been toying with making the big purchase! Any way yesterday I had the chance to use both a lot...
This is my personal findings....:D
Sizzix:
Pros:
many dies to purchase
able to buy at ACmoore/micheal's and use coupons
easier on the wrist
COns:
Heavy
not portable
plastic board seems to be easily marred and needs to be replaced

Quic Kutz:
Pros
Very portable
wonderful fonts (I actually like them better than Sizzix)
easy storage
COns;
Limited die cut size
tiring on the wrist (at least for me)
Hard to read which letter is which ( again could be me)

So now that I have played with both I really think I am going with the quic kutz. Reason why; I do like the fonts but like both brands. But I looked at my style of scrapping. I really don't use die cuts. Maybe here or there but none that I would use over and over again. I also have many punches that I use only on occassions but feel they are well used HAHAHA so I don't think I would want to buy many die cuts but know with my personality I would! LOL!
SO The savings pot now begins! Also I have to pick out which font I want!

I have a sizzix, when I bought it the Qk wasn't widely available and was only sold in sets which were very expensive.

I've used both, and I do prefer the fonts on the Qk, but I found it very very hard to use. I am pretty happy with my sizzix, but I don't buy many dies, I have the lollipop, and Serif alphabets and if the cursive ever appears I will buy that, but I am not tempted by the individual dies. I know if I had a QK I would want ALL the alphabets. It's a really tough choice isn't it
