I can't speak for the entire line, but . . .

We bought a certified reconditioned model 5200 about 5 years ago and it has been a real trooper. My wife makes juice drinks in it several times a week. I puree home-cooked pumpkin in it to make pie. It handles everything we throw at it. Just my opinion, but we feel no need for an upscale model. The variable speeds are nice to have. I can't express an opinion as to whether we would find 3 fixed speeds to be enough. I see that the TurboBlend Three Speed has the same motor as the 5200.

I hope this helps.

Mine if many decades old. You can throw the motor into reverse instantly, it will make ice cream which will dispense into an ice cream cup. I love it. I was of the opinion that any VitaMix is a good one.

Some models have a tall container (e.g. 5200) and others have a shorter container (e.g. 7500). The tall container may not fit under some cabinets. All are powerful and high quality. They occasionally do shows at select Costco and Sam's Clubs.

Have a small collection of Vita-Mixes-have 3600,4500 "stainless Steel Monolith"models.Liked the reverse functions-was effective and FUN to use!
