Vitamix Help - Which Model

BornEating:
Thanks for your comments. I read it the other night as I was contemplating the OP's question myself. I posted on another thread on here about xchanging a 500 for the newer. I purchased my first Vitamix yesterday. I called VM on Friday and learned a lot about the differences, which had me leaning toward the 300 or 750. Your comparison, having used both, was helpful. Additionally, I don't like a lot of stuff on the counter, but planned to put the VM there as I want to use it every day. I came home with the 750. Truth be told, I would have forgone the presets if the 300 had come in the brushed nickel. Having said that, I really enjoyed having the presets, especially for the amazing soup I made last night.

Do you think I should exchange my Vitamix Professional Series 500 for a Vitamix Series Professional Series 750 blender?

Thanks for the suggestion. The lifetime warranty is a HUGE incentive, but the red color isn't. I actually bought the 750 yesterday (at WS). It came down the 300 or the 750, since they both have the new technology (and supposedly quieter motor). In the end, if the 300 had been offered in the brushed nickel, it would have come home with me. Aesthetics tipped it for the 750, as it matches the kitchen and has earned a rarely awarded spot on the counter. I've now made 2 green smoothies, a sorbet, and an INCREDIBLE soup and LOVE the presets. Didn't think I would. Certainly don't think they are a necessity, but love them nonetheless. I didn't leave, but was able to prep other things while the soup was going and trusted the shut off. As for the OP, I don't know if the newer technology is that important to you or not. I don't typically go for the top of the line, but I chose to invest in this cadillac of a machine. And I should note, husband said, "It's nicer than our cars!" Yes, it's true.

I am getting ready to purchase my first (and hopefully last, for a very long time). I finally called VM today. I was advised the Costco 6300 IS the pro 500, except it doesn't come in the nickel finish, only the white, black or red colors. So, it's not the newer technology of the 300 & 750. I am strongly leaning toward the 750 and am planning a trip to my WS store in the next couple days to compare them in person. The comments here have only steer me more in that direction.
