I'm not a juicer, but I LOVE making smoothies!
For me the increased fibre content and nutrients are a no-brainer in making smoothies far better. Besides, the thicker texture works better to fill my stomach and I add other things like plain yogurt, wheat germ, flax seed, cocoa powder, walnuts (No nut butters for me. I'm allergic to peanuts and cant stand the taste of other butters, unfortunately), avocado etc to add in protein, fats, etc. I love that I can make a full meal and sip it leisurely on my balcony or bring it with me on my walk to work or school.
I also find that a green smoothie in the morning is an easy way to wake my stomach up gently, but doesn't have too many sugars which can bother me.
