Works great, much nicer looking than the smaller cheaper Classic Blendtecs, also has better soft touch controls and easier to clean the motor base.
Blendtec has advantages over the Vitamix, it fits under cabinets better and the Wildside container doesn't require a tamper.
Still has some warranty remaining on it.
