Previous posters in this thread mentioned this being a $750+ commercial unit. Is that true? If so should we assume this is a better deal than your Bed Bath and Beyond $320 unit?
The motors are the same. I don't have links handy to prove it, but this is what came out of the research I did back when I bought it. Blendtec has used the same 1560W, 13A direct drive motor on all their residential and base-commercial blenders for several years now.
What commercial establishments pay extra for are a commercial quality motor enclosure and heavy removable bulletproof base, sound shroud, jar with metal bearing instead of polycarbonate and a commercial warranty. The blender you get from this deal could be well over 10 years old. I would rather pay $80 more for a new motor.

I just ordered one of these from this same company (vmi) and the blender I got was trashed. The jar and the case/cover part were both cracked and clearly had been used and abused. I am sending it back hoping for a better one. I'm guessing it's just the luck of the draw.
Squaretrade won't cover used or refurbished items, only way is if the seller also sells squaretrade warranties like amazon or if you buy the item on eBay.
Yeah I bought it used from ebay. I got the blender in good condition only the lid is so loose that it spills around. The seller refuses to send me another lid without me sending the lid back first. There is no guarantee for the second lid be leak proof since the commercial blender allow air to escape. cheaper to buy from blendtec for 13.95 shipped. Its very easy to reprogram. The only gripe is that the 1 and 2 cannot be programmed as up down key
