I selected the EX59 after researching CU report and on-line user ratings for similar ellipticals from other brands. The Horizon EX59 came out way ahead, and from my experience so far, well deserved. Assembly is super easy and well documented, No missing parts, well packaged, and everything fit together perfectly. My daughter is primary user, and she loves it.
Only improvements I'd like to see are a power switch and adding the overhead requirements to the user manual.
