Summary: When we were investigating this Braun blender we read reviews that said the company had some problems with the base-to-bowl coupling, but had resolved them in the newest model. So we made sure we were purchasing the newest model.
Summary: Discount any review of a blender that reflects only several months of use. As a smoothie addict, shoveling a dozen or more ice cubes into the jar daily, I'm still looking for a machine that can go the distance (is a full year's use asking too much?).
Teeth breaking on mine, too. I exclusively used to blend margaritas/crush ice

Summary: It was a Christmas gift this year, and 5 months later, there are two plastic teeth left. Motor still turns, but sounds bad and last teeth won't last much longer. Just that minute I ordered a new set of plastic teeth. Customer service at Braun was easy to deal with. Took all of two minutes.
Summary: Like most everyone else, I experienced a broken plastic drive tooth (still worked though) with my blender and also noticed that speeds 1 and 2 seemed to be the same speed. Barring those issues, I really liked how well it blended until this past Thanksgiving weekend.
Summary: What the reviewer who mentions Consumer Reports fails to say is that CR updated their review a few months later, saying that this Braun blender failed several durability tests. That's why it's being offered at such a deep discount, of course!
Summary: After MUCH research, I was so excited to receive this blender. I enjoy making frozen fruit smoothies and needed a powerful blender that would last longer than the mainstay market blenders. This unit had excellent reviews.
Summary: The Braun MX 2050 blends most ingredients easily, including semi-dry items, such as dates, in a minimal amount of water. However, the little plastic pieces on the bottom of the blade (under the base) do break off easily, even under normal use.
Summary: I was excited to receive this blender after much research. I enjoy making smoothies and this unit had favorable reviews. As I first put it together I noticed that three of the six plastic gears on the bottom of the blade assembly seemed particularly thinly spoked.
Summary: We bought this blender about 2 months ago. We make fruit smoothies with it every day, using frozen fruit, fresh fruit, yogurt and milk. The jug attaches to the power base through 6 small plastic brackets which are attached to the bottom of the blade assembly.
Summary: Je l'ai renvoyé. En 2 mois d'attente j'ai eu largement le temps de changer d'avis. J'ai opté pour un blender chauffant. Je ne remets pas en cause le produit que je n'ai même pas essayé mais la livraison.
