"I purchased a SmartShop® 2 SUV (my first CNC router) a little over a year ago for my cabinet shop. I've been running it almost daily for about 14 months. I can't imagine not having it. It quickly became a critical piece of equipment in the shop. After about a year of use, I had a problem with a gearbox. Laguna's Tech Support (Josh) helped to diagnose the problem and get me back up and running quickly. When I buy another CNC router, I expect it will be another Laguna."

"I bought a SmartShop® II late last year. We are a small shop in Northern California and I have put this machine through some very long days. I have cut cabinet parts out of 38 sheets of plywood in one day. This machine performed great...If you are a small cabinet shop and you are looking for a machine that will cut productively I would highly suggest this machine. I have had cheaper machines in the past that didn't perform at all to what the manufacturer said they would so be very cautious about the cheap machines, they will cost you far more than they are worth."

I have several Laguna products in my cabinet shop including...a SmartShop® 2 CNC. All the tools have served me well but when the occasional problem occurs it is quickly addressed and resolved by tech support. My phone calls have always been returned promptly and any parts I've ever needed have been shipped out same day. Techs are great at explaining what we are doing while troubleshooting and always make sure the problem is fixed...they are of much, much better quality than the other brand (I own some of them as well). A machine is only as good as the people standing behind it and Laguna gets an A+!
