The newer bowls come with arrow stickers. The cynic in me thinks that the whole magnet thing is an attempt by Vitamix to make proprietary and blender specific parts in order to sell more stuff, idk, but apparently it initially came back and bit them because the arrows that need to be alined were virtually invisible. The newer ones ship with stickers that kinda shout "right here stupid." I don't know why Vitamix has an aversion to paint, they seem to love the clear on clear theme, despite all the customers who have pleaded for them to put stuff like level marks in a contrasting color so we can actually see the marks instead of just embossing it on the plastic. Same with the arrows, definitely a design flaw.
I give this product 4 stars because of the clear arrows (stickers are not a "fix," that's cheesy and cheap), magnet design and price. I think the general functionality is going to be good and very useful.
Overall, I think these are going to be a very cool addition to the Vitamix system. I still have a lot of playing to do, but I think these will work and the learning curve doesn't seem steep. It's a tool, not an automaton, i don't expect it to do everything without my help. I've only made peanut butter so far, but that's a good measure in my book. Peanut butter is hard to blend because, well, it's peanut butter. It goes from a sort of flour consistency (the point at which i stopped the blender and shook the contents from the side back onto the blade), after that it went to the sticky consistency of "butter" in no time at all. Honestly, it was kinda thrilling to watch. Forget adding extra fat (i.e., "oil") in order to make it a 'wet' blend to avoid stopping and shaking the contents when it hits the 'nut flour' stage, it's totally unnecessary. I only used about 4 ounces of nuts and that reduced to about 2 ounces of butter.
All things being equal, I'm very pleased at this point.
Oh, I also have a 20 oz cup to use with the blade attachment, i suspect that will come in handy making slightly larger quantities other than smoothies. I can already see uses for a 12 oz cup. :-)
As for the performance, it is superb! I am very happy with the results. I even made a coconut chutney, which is one of the more difficult things to grind and it made a super smooth paste. I am very glad I bought this and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to grind small quantities.
In order to get it to work you have to line up two virtually invisible arrows that you can't see at the same time (and I am in my 30s with good vision)
Doesn't blend evenly. Too many small crevasses for items to get stuck in.
Overpriced. Should be included with a 600 dollar blender, and better designed.
