Summary: Absolutely love it! We bought the Norwalk juicer when my son was diagnosed with cancer and think it is a wonderful juicer if you need to juice a large amount of juice; however, we found that there was some issues that, after my son was completely healed, caused us to stop juicing and eventually sell the juicer.
Summary: Didn't think I would ever rate this so-much-waited life-changer juicer with 2 stars. But here is the story: I have used this juicer every day since November 13, 2014 (less than 2 months) and found the experience very enjoyable. However, I am afraid that this enjoyment is going to end soon. First, after 2 weeks of use I noticed that the auger changed color slightly from black to dark green (it is not changing after thorough hand washing) and had some scratches.
Summary: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this juicer!!! What a difference in flavor, effort, and clean up! I can't believe that I suffered a centrifugal juicer for SO long. Yes, as stated in other reviews, it juices leafy and hard veggies best, but even with pulpy fruits, it juices far better than the centrifugal! Pulp is super dry with leafies, and mostly dry with pulpies. You will get far more juice out of both types of fruits and vegetables.
Love it for what it is, a versatile juicer/food processor. Not the best of either, however.

Summary: I love this thing. It serves to juice well, as well as process food. Granted, a food processor would be faster, and offer more flexibility in terms of the degree to which food gets mashed up. But I have a tiny kitchen in an apartment and this serves both needs pretty well, rather than either need perfectly. It doesn't juice berries well at all. It juices other fruits and vegetables better and worse depending on a variety of characteristics.
Summary: What can I say - it made juicing fun! I have always used a centrifugal juicer and fought with the loud noise, involved cleaning and reduced type of things to juice. The Omega changed all this, and most importantly - it made juicing easy and tasty! (the latter is one of the most important aspects for me) Let's dissect it for a second. The Omega is a slow juicer. It will definitely take longer to do the same juice as with the centrifugal one. BUT, this is better!
Summary: I don't think it gets any better than this. Very dry pulp amazing juice. Does the juicy fruits also, just have to push it through with harder fruit or veggie. I had the 8006 and liked a lot, This does even a better job. Love the juice.
Summary: I don't have anything to compare to as this is my first and only juicer. Juices great, easy to clean and operate. Mostly vegetable juices. I just add store bought fruit juice if I need to sweeten it.
Summary: I have never used a juicer and had to do a lot of research to find this one. I am amazed at the ease and efficiency with which this juicer works. The pulp is very dry so I run things through only once and the feed chute has a wide diameter so there is minimal preparation. It is quiet with a very powerful motor. And the best for last, it is so easy to clean. I have had appliances that worded well but were a nightmare to clean; not this one.
