Rated 4 out of 5 by messmeisterin7 remarkable mechanism
Bought the VRT 350 over a month ago to make best use of all the greens in my garden. I feel good about the process, except that it now has so much pulp it feels like a soup, not drinkable at all. I do alternate fibre and juicy items, fruits, etc juicer came with only one filter, looks like yellow to me, opaque enough, but not sure if i can order a white one, and more importantly if it would make a difference.

To the people who complain of the machine becoming grungy. Soak overnight in a sink full of hot water and oxiclean followed by the dishwasher and it will come back like new. there is no paint flaking from the auger as one reviewer stated because it is solid. Learn the machine,rotate your produce and the slower you juice the less pulp you will have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James Jenkins The best masticating juicer on the market
I had this juicer for over 6 years and it works like new. I try to juice once a morning or at least once a week and it works as good as the first day I brought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GT01 Love this juicer!
I am really pleased with this purchase. The juicier extracts extremely well. There is no unpleasant mechanical noise. I wish I would have purchased this sooner. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oldsoldier Every day juicer
Best juicer I have ever had. Works like a charm for my wheatgrass every morning and I will juice later in the day veggies and fruit. I like how easy it is to clean and assemble. Going on two years old and still looks and juices like new.

Rated 3 out of 5 by suziskatr OMEGA VRT350W
I purchased the juicer about 2 months ago and use it every other day. I'm not too pleased with the fact I can only get approx one quart of juice before it will only produce mush. I do kale, carrots, beets, ginger, apples, cucumber, lemons, parsley and celery. I generally must strain it before drinking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by omegame Great juicer but...
This loses one star for lack of design consideration when it comes to disassembling the top half of the juicer (or main body) from the base (motor). It's a tight fit when assembled and when I go to remove it for washing, it takes all my strength to do some and often at multiple tries. There's no grip to be able to hold the base still while twisting off the tightly secured top half. I realize I'm going to reach a time when I will no longer be able to use the machine simply for lack of being able to clean the parts. I already am discouraged from using it often as a result.
It loses another star for it's inability to juice veggies like the carrot well, where the pulp always feel wet.
Overall I am satisfied with Omega. Perhaps the newer models have factored these in and are worthy of 5 stars. I would definitely recommend this brand to others but just not this model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chris_ First Juicer I've Owned and Happy But....
Being that this is the first juicer I've owned I have nothing to compare it to except itself. My first impressions matched up with the Youtube videos I had watched. Lost of juice, a little pulp and dry extracted pulp. Other than the clean up time I was very happy. I've used it sporadically, probably not more than 30 times since I've owned it.
The issue I have had the last few time using it is large-ish pieces of carrots, apples, and a few other items not getting juiced. When I start the clean-up and pull out the auger there will be chunks on it and the basket. I've followed all the guidelines about feeding different types of fruits and vegetables not all at once but in small varied groups and haven't changed my process since owning it. I've had no other problems. I've only ever used the finer mesh basket.
Overall I really enjoy the juice I get from the VRT350 but I am concerned about it's longevity.
