  The typical price at Costco is $329.99, and the sale price is $299.99. I haven't seen any for that cheap, unless it's refurbished?

  The biggest 2 differences between the Vitamix and Blendtec is

1. Vitamix has a dip stick to help with the blending, whereas the Blendtec doesn't. However, Blendtec's "Wildside jar" (or the container) was designed in a way where a dipstick is not needed. In fact Vitamix blatantly made a replica of Blendtec's Wildside Jar to which Blendtec properly and promptly filed a lawsuit. Read that article, it's quite interesting.
2. Vitamix is analog knobs and switches. Blendtec is more "contemporary" with a digital backlit LCD screen and push buttons.

After hours and hours of reading reviews prior investing in a Blendtec, Vitamix and Blendtec are very closely matched. One isn't necessarily better than the other but more of a preference. They both blend VERY well and there is hardly a difference between the texture and fineness of the blend. If you prefer the more traditional blender, go with Vitamix. In a way it gives you more control with the knobs/switches and a dipstick.

On the other hand Blendtec packages everything nicely into a well designed container (to which Vitamix even wanted to copy) and a modernized blender itself -- which was my preference. Plus Blendtec's are slighlty cheaper than Vitamix by $20-$30, and more when there is a Blendtec sale.


**EDIT
After looking at the HSN site, the jar that comes with it is an older style jar called FourSide jar, and normally at the $300 price range gives you at least the newer WildSide jar. So this deal is a no go, despite it being cheaper than Amazon. It would be even cheaper to get it at Costco at regular price and pay the extra 10% fee if you aren't a member.

While this does seem to be a decent price on this product, I honestly don't see how it can really replace the other appliances. It looks like a powerful blender with no special attachments to properly perform the other functions.

Every blender can make a margarita.
Food processor. Sure it can replace a magic bullet, but a real food processor can also slice, julienne, and more.
Coffee grinder? I only use a burr grinder. Why would I use a $300 blender to replace a $15 blade grinder?
Meat grinder? From the videos I've seen it makes watery paté.
Ice cream? Freeze milk and blend.
Juicer? Blend until juicy, add water as needed to make it look like juice.

Not trying to start an argument.  Powerful blender, agreed.  Replacement for appliances, don't see it.

  Costco web site shows 399 with wildside and newest smaller jar combo. I have spoken to Blendtec support and customer rep explained to me that there is not much difference in performance.  The wildside jar is bigger and requires minimum amount of liquid filling. For small family 3-4 people the original (square) jar is enough. Go to bigger one if you have bigger family and need make more at the same time, but you may have issues if you tring to a single portion for one person.

Not to hijack I'm trying to decide between Blendtec and oster versa performance with 1400W version.

  I agree.  I am sure are fantastic blendtec and vitamix are excellent blenders.  

The trouble i have is the price.  most decent blender can be have at $75.  at $300, a gas motor should come with it, like a lawn mower.

I will compare these premimum blenders to Rainbow $1000+ vaccum cleaners, very niche.

  I agree that those expensive blender are not for everybody, but if you don't want to taste sand on your tongue when you trying to make a powder shake then you go to the best blenders. There is always price/performance ration. I was at one of the demos of Blendtec at costco and tried the tomato soup that was made within 3 minutes from fresh ingredients made me appreciate what this machine is capable of. I can't justify 399 price tag, but refurbish unit at $279 is a different story.

I received my high powered blender as a gift about 4 years ago and have used it daily since. Before that I was using a sub $100 blender and it was just not cutting it. Motor would bog and I had to make smaller batches or my smoothies would turn out chunky. People that will get the best uses out of these blenders are ones that are already pushing their standard blenders to their limits. It's a very pricey appliance however it's a great investment for your health.

Will it blend?

I've had my blendtec total blender for over a year. One of the biggest reasons I chose it over the Vitamix is that the Vitamix has the traditional pointy blades and the Blendtec does not. This was important to me, because if I am ever reaching into the jar to clean it, I like the fact that I can't cut or prick my finger on the blade.

In 311 blend cycles, most of which were for green smoothies, I can say that a "tamper" would have been useful on only 2 occasions because things did not get sucked into the vortex on that many occasions.

Besides smoothies, my favorite use for the blender is to take 1 cup of wheat berries, 1.5 cups of milk, and blend them on speed 9 for 50 seconds. Add to what is now a thin batter, two eggs, two tablespoons of olive oil, two tablespoons of sugar/honey, one tablespoon of baking powder and 1/4 tsp of kosher salt and hit the pulse button 5-6 times and you have fantastic pancake batter. The pancakes are awesome and taste fantastic.

I use a Blendtec in a commercial kitchen and it's the only blender that has lasted us over 2 years. We just finally had a problem with it the other day where the display blanked out and it didn't turn on every time. So it's not perfectly reliable but my kitchen will destroy any blender in a short time. I used to use other commercial blenders, never Vitamix, but others didn't last more than 3-4 months at at time. The motor is strong and reliable. The issue this time was the electronics. But this being a costco blender it's an easy return.
