The bum review on amazon regarding the Omega filter problem was a recent review.
After the wheat grass juicing failures my main juice was carrot juice with a little celery juice thrown in. I could juice fast on that for several days.
While Vitamix is a good blender, it would never work with trying to extract juice from carrots for example. What I did find in the several juicers that I owned was that the Green Power - my first juicer, was slow when it came to carrots and would accept only 1 carrot at a time. It was difficult to clean - which is a major complaint about that machine but I learned to get it torn apart and cleaned in just a couple of minutes. (You have to clean your juicer immediately after juicing or you will have a major problem getting it clean. In other words, you can't juice and then let it sit for a few hours and juice again - I tried it.)
After giving away the Vitamix to a relative I bought an Oster blender for $60 - http://www.costco.com/Oster-Blender.product.11599298.html?catalogId=10701&...
and to tell you the truth it is just one small step below the Vitamix which Costco also sells - for $500. For me, the Oster does everything the Vitamix did.
When it came to my carrot juice there is no way you could beat my Breville - I had two of them and if I remember right the JE98XL was the second one owned and was an excellent carrot juicer. I could juice 4 and 5 carrots at a time - they ran right through and they have 2 speeds which is great for carrots. The pulp was actually drier than my Green Power, and so much quicker.
I made a major relocation a couple of years ago and I don't currently own a juicer but may get back at it.
