The OMNIBlend V, although it has a 3 hp self-compensating energy-efficient motor, it does not run as powerful as the 3 hp commerical Vita Mix Giant. Regardless, the purchase price at $ 250 plus shipping in the USA is so fantastic. It makes up the difference in a heart beat. The Vita Mix Commercial 3 hp blender (1005 Vita Prep) costs $ 495 incl shipping. And certainly, the 3 hp Vita Mix, and even the 3 hp Blendtec HP3A blender are stronger blenders than the OMNI 3 hp blender, and for those people who can afford them, go for it. The OMNIBLEND V is basically for those people who would have bought the Montel Health Master (Rusty-Leaky) Blender, or the Vita Mix TurboBlend 4500 Blender.
