Did you compare your leaf juice with the green smoothie made from professional blenders? I suggest you make such comparison before you comment. Remember, I am saying professional blenders, not blenders less than $350...
Why would they have to compare this $180 masticating juicer to a blended smoothie from a $350 professional blender? They are different machines that produce a different product (juice vs. smoothies). Who put you in charge of who gets to share their experience with a product?

Every professional review of the 8006 praises its ability to juice leafy greens. Just because you bought a blender doesn't mean you get to crap all over a widely accepted fact of the 8006: it juices greens incredibly well WITHOUT all of the plant matter left behind, producing a smooth, low foam, low pulp juice. It is not a smoothie machine. Its entire operation is completely different, including the low temperature mastication method it uses to create the juice.

They are completely different machines for a completely different purpose. I don't know why you're here snapping at people when they have firsthand experience with a product.

In your original post you stated, " I would say any juicer is not good for leaf. Juicer is only for fruit, carrot, potato....". Contrary to your statement, he was just saying that he uses his 8006 for leafy greens and it does it well. He wasn't comparing the end product of juicing versus blending or even juicers versus blenders.

IMHO, it is a no brainer, only thing going for omega is full 10 year vs hurom (10 year motor, 1 year parts and labor i guess). But since it is from costco it doesnt matter. I wish my local costco had these. Congrats. I believe hurom makes most of these machines.

My local Costco has the Hurom in store for 249.99. I think this is the best option considering the generous return policy should something go wrong.

I was able to get a price match today at BB&B. I just printed the product page from Macy's and made sure it showed the 40% +10 % off. The cashier and manager both read this and they used their calculators and gave it to me for just slightly $204 out the door with the tax included

Blending is not Juicing. They both have different purposes and different results. Both are good, but totally different. Juicing is better for certain things whereas blending is better for others. For me, the word "professional" and a cost greater than $350+ does not qualify anything to be "better". I base my decision on results regardless of name or price.
There are some that believe juicing cures cancer (I'm not endorsing, just making a point). One group "Gerson Institute" believes if you drink up to 13 glasses of fresh, organic, raw juices daily--the equivalent of 15 pounds of produce in liquid form this could cure and/or prevent cancer (again, I'm not necessarily a believer...my point only...). Well my point is you could no way blend and consume 15 pounds of product daily. The only way you could consume this much product is to use a juicer, not a blender! Interesting to your point of cost, the juicer endorsed by the Gerson Institue is the $2,000+ Norwalk juicer. The juicer method is hydraulic press extraction. I do not believe you need to spend $2,000+ for hydraulic press extraction. If you believe this method is best, you can buy a $350 hydraulic press (not $2,000+). In fact I'm not a fan of the Norwalk simply because the RPM of their unit is 3,000 rpm +/-. Although this is not the high 15,000+rpm of many juicers, it is still higher than the low 80 rpm of many other juicers i.e. Omega 8000 series and VRTs (plus many other brands and models). Blenders produce enough heat to cook soup. How? Friction via high rpm. The raw food enthusiast does not want to "cook out" the nutrition of their raw fruits and vegetables. Everyone has a different goal, purpose, and belief. Nobody is wrong; just have different goals, and likes. I do both juice and blend daily. Both have completely different results and are a different process. Love them both!nod I own the Omega 8006 and a Vita-Mix Blender. They are awesome! I am thinking about purchasing a Welles/Peoples Hydraulic Juice Press as a compliment to my 8006. FYI... the hydraulic press does not work without advanced pulping of product, that is where the 8006 unused pulp is used. The cold pressing is more for the advanced fanatical juice heads as it is time consuming. I simply suggest just buying the 8006 juicer and simply enjoy.

I'm aware that a high speed blender can pulverize greens and everything else into a silky smoothie. This thread is about Omega juicers, however, and the J8006 juices leafy greens into a thin juice, which is what the juicer is intended to do.

Hopefully BB&B will still honor the 40% + 10% off discounts tomorrow because this promotion ends today 2/18 on Macy's website. If you still want to try your luck you'll need to print a hard copy of this promotion out today before it changes tomorrow.

Bed Bath and Beyond has an equally excellent return policy and price matching this there gets you the Omega for less than that Hurom.

Upgraded from the Breville!

Price-matched at local BBB but couldn't get further discount (had 20% off single item). Regardless, in-stock and coming in 3-5 days.
Final price ~160

Thanks OP

OMEGA 800X LINE BUYERS BEWARE!

Lot's of 1-star reviews (and comments on reviews) on amazon all with the same concern. Most of them loved the juicer but those who needed to replace the screen under warranty (the part most likely to break) haven't been able to get replacement screens. Apparently, Omega hasn't carried stock for several months now and doesn't give any indication of when -or if- they will get more. There's some speculation out there about them discontinuing the unit to push the VRT line. There are also lot's of complaints about Omega not responding to inquiries, many have been waiting for weeks/months for any response from them.
