Rated 2 out of 5 by Bobyjo adequate but really really loud.
The product review failed to mention that it's "horribly" loud, and that it tends to walk itself across the counter while you're trying to juice things, so you end up with a big mess. It does a good job juicing, it's just obnoxious. I wouldn't buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RoyJB Excellent for the Price
I wanted me and my family to give juicing a try but didn't want to sink a lot of money into something that would end up under the counter or given to charity. I did quite a bit of research across the net looking at different reviews. This unit seemed overall to have very high marks. A couple things to note though which I don't really see as bad given the price point of the product.
1. It may be listed as 'quiet' but it's loud enough to restrain any conversation in the area. It probably can only be considered as 'quiet' compared to others. This is true of all machines of this type.
2. When juicing large hard vegetables (carrots, beets, etc) the power of the machine does make it vibrate and I need to lay my hand on top of the machine to keep it in place. It does juice items VERY quickly and holding it down is just for a second or two.
3. Clean up is a breeze if you do it immediately after juicing or else you'll end up with real problems, especially the screen part. It needs a good scrubbing. This is true for all machines of this type.
4. It does not juice leafy greens very well. It's best to fill the hopper completely and tightly before starting and leaving the leaves just 'slightly' damp. Roll up other leaves into a bundle or tight ball before putting them in the machine. Again this is true for all machines of this type.
The machine operated better than expected but 'liking' straight vegetables juices was of mixed reviews with my family. Everyone though, did love the orange and pineapple batches that I made. I did not try berries as I heard they do not work well with this type of machine and are better made into smoothies. In the end we decided to not only keep the machine to give to a friend but to also upgrade to a much more expensive and different type of juicer as we see ourselves juicing for many years to come.
