I got a Vitamix on clearance at Target for half off but I would have bought the blendtec due to the fact I would never spend 450 bucks for a fking blender. That is insane.

Which is better. I do not want to start that debate but blades can easily be changed in a Vitamix and Vitamix blades do not have bearing issues. But actually in terms of smoothies...Vitamix is better.

I have owned a Blendtech for 5 years now... I hate it. Thing has NEVER performed like it was supposed to. Literally just pulled the trigger tonight on the refurb Vitamix 7500 for 238+tax. Would recommend others do the same.

Anyone wanna add any constructive contradiction? I just bought the vitamix too and wondering if I should do this instead. I'm not really into blenders like some of you seem to be

I think both have their positives and negatives.
It's a personal choice, just like Coke or Pepsi.
Either are good machines and will make a very smooth delicious fruit drink.

I had a Blendtec from Costco, it was fine for two years with no issues.
Then one day, I used it to whip some cream cheese.
Will it Blend??? NOPE!
It burned up the motor.
I guess it can only blend hard things like broomsticks, iPhones, etc...
Luckily, it had a 7 year warranty and was replaced.
The standard Vitamix is too tall to be place under your cabinets.
I believe you can get one with a shorter jar.
I don't like the idea of having to use the temper stick.

It's interesting that while most Blendtec blenders have a longer warranty, this line has a 2-yr warranty. Makes you wonder if they don't stand behind the quality of this series.

I will chime in on this Blendtec vs. Vitamix, as I have both at different houses.

Vitamix is my go-to for blending (from smoothie to daiquiri), and I like the simple (turn to go faster) knob control. I vary speed just to get everything to the bottom for good blending/chopping, or minimizing foam. Blendtec is slicker with all programs (drink making settings), and might be good if you walk away while blending. But no blender is as smart as your eyes and hand to get everything blended well, and Vitamix is much easier to control speed.

This was advertised through Woot for $189 last week and I ordered one, here was my experience:

Unit arrived in a brown box with the FourSide jar instead of the Wildside+ but having not owned this blender before, I had no idea. A few days later woot. Amazon sent a flurry of apology emails and a $30 refund and their claim was that blendtec supplied them with the wrong items. My price was $159.

I would warn anyone jumping on this to verify which jar you get in the box.

For what its worth, I'm very happy with the blender and it makes yogurt smoothies and frozen coffee drinks to perfection so far, but its been a week so who knows how long it will last. Also I'm coming from a $30 blender I used for over a decade and so I'm comparing to that. That blender made smoothies a 15 minute ordeal trying to get the ice to break, etc. The blendtec single button behavior totally worked in my first week of experience

Edit: now in week 2, I've had to use the pulse button a few times to manually break some stuff up when running multiple batches of smoothies in a row, so yeah... the auto button isn't always perfect, which I guess is to be expected since its a program of times and speeds with no sensing.

Blendtec are decent blenders but I would either opt for something with a longer warranty or factor in the cost of new jars down the line. Jars don't last long and replacements are expensive.

The 5200 series came with a sweet 48 ounce non low profile that fits perfect. They change the designed to make fatter low profile but they do not do as well on low volume mixes.
