Is an overlock machine stitch on a sewing machine as good as one on a serger?

I have a regular sewing machine (it's a Brother PC-420PRW) and it has some stitch options for overlock stitches. I was wondering if these stitches would hold up as well and look as nice as the sewing a serger would do.

Unfortunately, in my opinion, no. They don't look as nice, they don't hold up as well and you don't get a clean finished edge. The overlock stitches on a sewing machine are good for small, quick projects.

Some of the sergers out today are reasonable priced. Be aware - unless you get a high end machine, they are a bear to thread. I have an upscale model so I don't have that problem - but for many years I had a Janome Mylock 634 and they are excellent machines. The sergers, with the knife engaged, will give you a clean cut finish before the stitches are sewn.
