I spent some time researching and decided on the Omega 8006 masticating juicer. I absolutely love it and use it every single morning, so I when I was visiting my parents over the weekend I took the juicer with me. My parent loved it so much I left it with them and bought myself the 8004. Overall, yes the chute is smaller in comparison to other juicers but I don't mind spending a few extra minutes cutting the fruits/vegetable to smaller pieces which I get back later when it only takes about 2 minutes to cleanup. Also, I like that it's low rpm which generates less heat to the juice and comes with other attachments to make baby food, pasta extruder, almond/soy milk and banana 'ice cream'. Overall I would highly recommend the Omege 8006 (black chrome)/ 8004 (white), the harder Ultem auger is worth the extra $. The only comment for the 8004 is that since I juice a lot of carrots there is some slight staining on the white as with the juice cups they provide, those stain too. Other than that it's perfect!
