My Comments
This is the most powerful blender you can get at the lowest price ever in the convertible, combo package!
This is the ONLY blender at this price with juice-bar style pre-programmed cycles, and is the most powerful blender under $500.00!
Basic model with manual,
2-speed operation.
The same unit as the model 5200 but relabeled and with $400 in multiple bonuses added.

Offers a nice entry-level price, but at the cost of power and a smaller carafe size.

WARNING: Various versions sold by Montel Williams & Jack LaLanne are cheap Vitamix knock offs. Many complaints, terrible warranty, poor seervice.
