No. They are perfectly user friendly. Mechanical machines are simpler than the computerized ones. You can take one look at the front of the machine and know what your machine is going to do. You have more control of the stitch settings, too, because you're not limited to .5mm increments, and this one has width adjustment as well as length. You can adjust the pressure on the foot and lower the feed dogs. Drop-in bobbins are easy to load and your thread supply is always visible. The threading is easy. Just remember to use the right bobbin (clear plastic class 15), the right needle for the fabric and size thread you are using, and to learn how to correctly thread the machine. The upper thread guide that leads to the thread tension discs has a "pretension spring" on it (that is a new part, at least to me). Don't miss it! The ones who have the most difficulty are inexperienced with sewing machines and new to sewing in general. It's not that the machines are difficult, it's that they probably would learn to use the machine better if at first they worked with a more experienced person to show them how. These folks end up putting the bobbins in backwards or miss threading steps which causes all sorts of problems which are not the machine's fault. Videos are nice to a certain point, but you can't ask questions of a video and this machine doesn't come with one.

The Classic 44S machine I have needed a very minor adjustment to a part on the needleplate, but that was an easy fix and now it runs very smoothly, and that probably was just a fluke and not the norm.

I believe every one has a right to their opinion; this singer is however user friendly as far as I and family members are concerned;--you know sometimes we are used to another product that was seasoned with time -likewise with this product- you just need to feel your way through

Jo,
The 44S is a basic, mechanical machine. This machine is easy to use. It does have a powerful motor and it sews at a higher speed then a 'regular' sewing machine so that may intimidate some at first.
Stitch selection is easy with just a turn of the dial, there is a 1-step buttonhole, and threading is simple with the automatic needle threader.
If you have questions or concerns about the use of the machine once you have it home Singer’s Consumer Affairs Dept. is there to help at 1800-4SINGER (1800-474-6437), M-F, 8:00 – 4:00 CST or email at talktous@svpworldwide.com.

The Classic does not come with a treadle. It is an electric machine.
There are many people that chose to convert a machine to be used as a treadle and you can find info on the internet about doing this. Of course, if you did that this extra strength and speed provided by the stronger motor would be lost.

Not knowing what your sewing table looks like let me say that if it was sold by Singer I see no reason why not though I would check and compare measurements.
I have a five foot office meeting/work table that I drilled a hole into for the plug to the outlet, and a larger hole for the connection to my old machine. The connection for the new machine is smaller.

answer 2
This is a free arm sewing machine. If the cabinet that you currently own is configured for a free arm sewing machine, then you will be able to sit the machine in this cabinet. If your old machine was a flat bed, then unfortunately this new machine will not fit in a flat bed cabinet.
