Both are fine machines and covered over/over/over, there.

There are a few dealers that frequent this board and are very well regarded here. Steve from Cobra machine is one of them. Is the machine necessarily better then a Cowboy or a Techsew? Maybe not. They are all Chinese clones of the same Juki 441 class machines. A few of these dealers are quite well regarded on this board. I don't think you'd go wrong with buying from any one of them.
Specifically concerning Cobra machines, I've purchased a few machines from Steve and have found him to be very honest and straightforward. I've never purchased from any of the other dealers on this board but the few that I've talked to have all been very helpful as well.
If the Cobra class 4 style of machine is what you're looking for, I think the main choices you have are the Cowboy 4500, Artisan Toro 4000, Cobra Class 4, or Techsew 5100 (or spend more on the name brand Juki). They are all comparably set up and comparably priced. They all get their machines from China and then go over them and adjust them to make sure they're working well before sending them off to customers.
I think ultimately the choice may come down to where you live and shipping costs. I live in the SF/Oakland area so Steve was a more logical choice for me because of shipping charges. Hope this helps.

What struck me about Steve though is not only was he helpful when I was looking at machines, but after I bought one from a different company he went out of his way to check on my progress with it and to see if I could use any help/answers as he remembered I was a novice machine operator. If you decide to get a Cobra, you'll be in good hands.
