I bought my Janome 5700 in 1997 and use a lot still in 2019. I used mostly for sewing and in 2019 getting back into embroidery. I have been ordering designs on the internet and noted they still sell SEW format. If they did not have SEW format I would convert in my Embird Software I bought back in 1998. I did note however that My 5700 did not accept new designs in a different format with more than 11-12 colour changes. As of now 5700 MC works great, still reads today’s designs and SEW format still being sold and can still be converted into other formats using Embird software. The MC 500e is good step up and not a sewing machine combo but has larger embroidery area. MC only has 4 inch area.

I bought my 5700 Embroidery Machine in 1999 and it still functions well. I did not use as much in the past ten years though. Once again, 2019, I am getting back into my sewing projects. I was curious if my 5700 would read the designs sold today. I always ordered my designs from embroiderylibrary and even today 5700 machine reads the designs with the old software! I ran off a couple of the designs as tests and they are just as beautiful. Great machine even with the old technology and simple to use. If I had an option to trade my 5700 for a new high tech one.....No Way. I brought my machine in for cleaning and still working pretty good.
