I have had this blender for over a month now and have used it several times. I mostly use it to make smoothies. I have had no problems so far. It takes a while to crush the frozen fruit and I sometimes have to take the lid off and move the fruit around, but the blender is solid and does not 'walk' or move, even when doing tough jobs like crushing frozen fruit. It fits very compactly on my countertop and looks great! It comes apart and is easy to clean. I have bought cheap blenders before, and though this was pricier, I feel it is well worth the money.
I chose this case for my child's DSi XL. It fits perfectly! It also holds the charger and the DS Game Card Case 24 - Blue. The handles make it easy for my child to carry around and keeps the DSi XL from being bumped around. It is a fairly compact bag considering it fits all these things in it. I did my research and am very glad I chose this one! Don't hesitate- buy it!
