Poor Reviews.

I bought this juicer hoping it would make juicing easier. Although I have a masticating juicer that juices really well, my juicer has a small shoot. So chopping produce to small pieces is laborious and time consuming. i thought I'd give this juicer as a chance since it had a totally different design. Well this juicer still has a very small chute and it doesn't juice well at all. I Could literally squeeze the pulp by hand and gain an additional cup of juice. Needless to say I returned this juicer immediately. Thanks to Costco generous return policy I wasn't stuck with another addition to the useless appliance graveyard.

20% 1-Star vs. 40% 5-Star. Phillips is a great company, no doubt - but they should stay away from home appliances and not make lousy and very low quality products. At least this one I sent back to Costco. The other items that broke after a few months that I purchased from Amazon - well - they actually want you to ship the broken item back for a replacement.

I don't have this but it did look interesting. It does say "Micro" which is why I would expect a small chute and the need to cut things smaller so they will fit. The "Micro" means it would be good for a small kitchen, or even taking in an RV (which I do sometimes). But I agree that if it doesn't juice (press) well, then it's kind-of a waste.

On the "serious juicer" side, look for an Omega Juicer. I have one and it's great. It is big and heavy, though. They will range from $200-400. Sometimes they have had good sales, like $100 off, which makes them more affordable.

I think the problem is you actually need a large motor to get the power to crush the juice out of vegetables, especially if doing hard things like carrots. (might be better for greens, celery). A small thing like this probably doesn't have the needed power, or else it would have to be geared-down and work very slowly.

Because of the small size and good price, I'm still tempted to give this a try. And I know of course I could return it to Costco if I'm not happy. But I don't like using that policy if I don't have to, and it's just extra work for me too, to go through it all.

[Edit]Just looked at the Costco description some more: "Unique no-sieve design for quick, easy cleaning" -- so that is interesting. It explains how maybe they made a smaller, lighter, (cheaper) juicer. But it might also explain the bad performance as mentioned in post #1. If it doesn't have a sieve, how does it filter out and press the material properly? My guess is it probably works well for certain things and probably poorly on others.

[Edit 2] After reading more reviews and bit of research, I'm deciding NO on this. Seems like a good idea, just not done well-enough; too many problems, bad performance. I usually disregard a few negative reviews, but I was skeptical a small cheap juicer like this could work well, and there seems to be a pattern of people confirming that it doesn't, or it breaks prematurely.

so i was thinking of getting this for taking out into the wild, with the 200 watt draw and the size/weight it seems like it would be perfect for the 'RV'. i also am hesitant, especially after reading the first review, but when i looked across the board, this little guy seems to be on the top of alot of top 10 lists.

i might buy and try, mainly considering costco's generous return policy

Just jumping off your Omega Juicer suggestion.
If you have a "Bargain Hunt" (It's a store) in your area, you can sign up an email address and get a 30% off coupon for anything at normal price. If they have one, I would consider that route.
I've been able to pick up 3 of them so far for $50 to $100 depending on which model it is. YMMV.

I've brought it during previous $100 off promotion. It works realy great. Yes, it takes some time to chop and slice before but the result is worth. And cleaning is super easy and fast.
