This is a great blender, especially for the price. I wanted simplicity: Who really needs 17 speeds? I never understood that. This has low, high, pulse, and one more speed just for ice crushing. I also wanted something that looks good: The Cuisinart is great, and the flush-touch buttons means that food goop is easy to wipe clean. Performance is very satisfactory: I use it mainly for fruit smoothies, and it has no problem with apples, pears, pineapples, and ice. I'd say noise is about average: After all, this is a heavy, powerful motor.
