I don't know if I should keep it or spend more for better

Review Summary

So it is my first scroll saw, and it did a pretty good job at cutting out a doll shape that I tested and now I am giving it to my daughter. It was very easy to change the blade off and on and I have read that it takes pinless blades too. What I did not like was the vibration and it felt like the speed was too low at it's max, and just as I saw on a video on youtube, the speed actuates. Overall it did what is supposed to do but I keep reading about the Dewalt which is about $300 more.
It's hard to make up my mind if I should or keep what I have which is not something I'll be using alot.
