I received mine today and it is in awesome condition. While one can tell it's used, the buttons are not faded a bit, the base looks great, display is bright and clear, and the carafe, while pink (and labeled soy), is in excellent condition. I should also mention that the carafe/jar is labeled as manufactured in 11/09.
I went ahead and purchased a brand new wildside 96oz jar for $75 off Craigslist from a Costco employee. Also, for those who are wondering, the wildside 96 ouncer fits perfectly under the sound hood. The sound hood itself had hairline cracks (inside the plastic, not exposed). The hood is extremely thick, heavy duty plastic -- I'm not concerned about it.
Finally, performance (with the wildside carafe) was extremely impressive. First smoothie I hit the #2 button with a bunch of frozen fruit and yogurt and it blended it perfectly.
So happy I did this! Thank you original poster and Slickdeals!
can someone post up a few pics of their unit? trying to decide over a refurb or a new one.
I actually unboxed mine today. Although Ive had it since two days after the sale. Here is a pic of it without the shroud. Its is actually pretty damn good shape considering. The shroud of course was cracked and beat up but as you can see its not needed to function. The pitcher as well was beat up. Motor runs great. the base is clean and not many scratches at all.
Took 5 mins to program all the buttons.
Luckily I got in on the free Wildside jar promtion before Xmas. So this was a great great deal!
