I bought this, my second Bernina, for the stitch regulator. I also own a 350QE, which I love even more now that I own the 570.
In defense of the bigger machine, I bought a floor model, which could be why it is finicky, but it took a long time to get the tension right, when I change from free motion quilting to regular sewing or back there is always a glitch of some sort, and although supposedly you don't need a walking foot because of the even feed feature, I found that I did need the extra foot (which doesn't come with the 570).
The stitch regulator is okay but lately, it has been skipping stitches. Eventually, I may love it, but not yet.
And since it has been discontinued, I wouldn't recommend it to a friend or even an acquaintance.
