Way underpriced for the quality.
This is the first real piece of exercise equipment we have ever purchased, and we are very satisfied with it. We compared features and prices on several brands and models of ellipticals. We finally settled on this and we haven't regretted it. The product arrived on time and my wife and I were able to set it up in less than two hours with only the included tools. All components were clearly labeled and the directions were fairly straightforward.
The machine's control panel is intuitive an easy to use, and although there is no backlight you really don't need one unless you are in the habit of working out in a dark room. One improvement would be to give the control panel a rechargeable battery pack or make it operational on normal D or C cell batteries. Instead the machine has to be plugged into a wall outlet during every session.
In general, the operation is smooth and quiet as long as the elliptical is on a level surface. Beginners and those who are
out of shape may find the first level to be a bit difficult, although if they push through for a few days they will start to enjoy it. The stride length is perfect for both me and my wife. I am 5'9"" and she is an inch shorter.
There have been some negative comments on the location of the water bottle holster, but we have found the location to be
convenient and easy to reach.
We have now owned this elliptical for almost a month. Overall, for the price and quality of this machine we are very satisfied and we wouldn't hesitate to purchase the same machine again.
