Overall this software package is well worth the price. I purchased it to be able to use the card with my Brother Se-350 embroidery machine. It has worked great for use with both the Se-350 machine and my larger PE-750 machine. It opens easily and shows what size patterns you have that can be used for what size hoops. It also allows you to enlarge the pattern and has a screen button so that you can see the pattern loaded clearly. It does have several drawbacks however. First the USB cable really tends to get in the way on older computers that have the USB jack in the front. It also deletes patterns already on it before it will reload new ones so you have to make sure you reload patterns you want to save on it. I have also had problems with it not responding but on re hitting the load button makes it work. There are also some patterns I have found it won't load but I don't know if this is a problem with the ped-basic or the pattern designers. It is a good little program and a must have if you want to buy patterns from the internet to use on your embroidery machine.
