I've been using the Pazzles Inspiration for a couple years now and am also pretty happy with it. My local AC Moore had two brand new ones in the clearance sections for $350 each. At the time I think list was over $700. I build FF and like to airbrush on most of my markings so its perfect for making stencils for roundels, wing crosses, N-numbers, etc. A browse of my blog will show some of the stencils I've made. Like anything else, there is a bit of a learning curve but when you get it dialed it in for the type of material you are cutting, the results are quite repeatable.

One trick I've learned is to use clear vinyl shelf paper for making stencils. A lot cheaper than using Frisket paper or the special purpose paper sold by Pazzles and Cricut (virtually same product). Being clear, its easy to line up the stencil especially when overlaying one color over another. At times I also use vellum paper and attach with re-positional spray adhesive before painting.
