Good but Could be Better
I have owned my Vitamix for several years and use it every day. It definitely does everything they say but it would be so much better if the blades could be removed from the carafe for cleaning and for removal of stuck on foods.
Also, it might work better if the carafe was round. With the square container, foods sometimes get stuck in the corners and won't come out unless scraped with a spatula.
So, when making peanut butter, shakes or other things that you want to remain thick or that use something in the form of a powder, the Ninja is by far a better machine.

I purchased this machine about 3 years ago & I love it!!! What I notice with the other Vitamix machines is that it doesn’t come with the big binder cookbook. It just has a regular paperback cookbook. This book is much better. You can wipe the pages down & all recipes are all separate. I highly recommend this machine.

Where are the reviews?
I bought this to replace a five and a half year Vitamix, just out of warranty. The 10 speed dial barely increases, no pulse button, just high, no vortex, no separate on off button. What happened to the quality? How sad. Sending back.

I don't have this exact model but one that looks functionally the same, purchased from QVC several years ago. I let it languish in its original packaging, never finding a need to use it, until one day I decided to give it a try when I needed to puree some soup. Well! I was completely enchanted! It's now out on my counter.
The pluses over a standard blender: the container just fits down onto the base, there's no screwing anything into anything else. Likewise the blades are self-contained, no rubber ring, put the blade in, screw the bottom on, etc. The top fits on very easily as well. And of course it's a piece of cake to clean.
And what a job it does! Literally, just as seen on TV. I decided to chop up some carrots, which it did very quickly. I wondered how I might get all of the pieces of carrot off the sides of the container. I solved this by putting cold water into it, swishing it around, tipping it into a strainer, shaking it a few times, and wham, into the frying pan. Got every piece, no spatula required.
I now have the recipe book that came with it out as reading material on my coffee table and have so many bookmarks in there I don't know which recipe to try first.
