Silhouette Cameo 5 Craft Vinyl Cutter


Works quietly

Sharon Mullinix
Cameo 5

I replaced Cameo 3 after years of use. I really love the new Cameo 5. It is very smooth and easy to work. Quieter and cuts all the small designs with no issues.

Cameo 5 vs Siser Juliet

I have been using Cameo machines for the last 4 years for my online business. I currently own two Cameo 4's & a Siser Juliet. I instantly purchased the Cameo 5 with really high hopes. I loved the idea of the updated quiet motor + increased speed. Ideally, the Cameo 5 should rival the Siser Juliet, which is super fast & super quiet. I wanted this update so badly for Cameo so I can continue to use the software that houses all of my designs and perhaps quit using the Juliet altogether and just purchase more Cameo 5's. Mainly because the Juliet requires you to import each design, as it's not a great design software.

After using this new machine for almost two weeks, I can confidently say it's not quite there. It's quieter, yes. But it has a grinding noise vs whisper quiet like the Juliet. It is faster, but again, not as fast as the Juliet. Additionally, getting the blade to cut HTV on the Cameo 5 was a nightmare to setup, it took me ALL DAY of tinkering to finally get it to cut. But I wouldn't trust it to cut glitter HTV, so I use my old Cameo 4 for that. I tried everything in my tool belt, but it feels like there is something wrong that I cannot fix. It's cutting for now, so I'm just letting it be. I don't think I'll be updating the rest of my fleet of machines until the next new model update.
