Great Sturdy machine, an improved version of the 900. The Neo 1000 is in some ways, I feel is even better in the home than the upright 930. I looked at the pros and cons of the 930 too. The 1000 is worth the extra (over the 900) due to the stronger and non-staining auger and other parts . The pulp ejection can be dialled up to put even more pressure on the pulp. To squeeze the very last drop of goodness out. This is a new Oscar feature. Easy enough to clean the unit. The mincing unit works well on "Nutmeat" and "Vege Hencheon". I'm very pleased with my new machine.
