I too have the $20 blender for smoothies with lots of ice - when I have them on really hot days. I don't juice though as I am a tactile person who likes to eat tons of raw veggies and fruit

If I could afford one, it would be nice... For smoothies, we bought a $14.99 blender 2 or 3 years back, and I use ice ALL the time because I like them cold & smooth. I keep waiting for the motor to burn up but it keeps grinding everything I ask. I would like one to handle greens better, but for the price I have NO complaints!
I just bought mine this week and I am expecting it on Monday! I cannot wait to try it out!

I have one and I love it - bought it new about 3 years ago (it was my Christmas present to myself). I know they are expensive, but they have a great warranty and are top of the line, so in my opinion, are worth the investment. I use mine almost every day for everything from smoothies, to soups, to pancakes - I also make my own coconut milk and rice milk.
Not to downplay the ninja and it could be because I lead a raw lifestyle and use the vitamix daily, but I burned out the ninja in a month. just saying. if you follow more of a SAD diet, the ninja should work fine.
I have a very old one. I use it nearly daily to make my veggie/fruit smoothies. It is excellent and they last forever! In the past I have used it to make soups and some pudding. You can "cook" some soups in it. I got mine used for $50. I wouldn't pay the $400 for a new one, but that's just me.
