    Noisy


    Use it just about everyday, noisy sometimes, had a clicking noise that kinda stopped, in the beginning it starts up and stops after 10 minutes.It is sturdy and built nice, easy to use what I was looking for. Did have the first one replaced because of parts issue, took 2 weeks to solve issue, and emails phone calls sometimes not returned. That said, they did make good on replacement.

    LOUSY Customer Service

    Noisy


    In all fairness, I do have to say that I like the elliptical, IF we could get the noise problems taken care of. I called customer service to ask if my machine could be serviced because it IS under warranty and it IS making awful, grinding noise on every rotation. I was told that they will NOT send out a service person until something is actually BROKEN. RIDICULOUS!! I am trying to prevent something from actually breaking, and am taking the appropriate measures to prevent something from breaking, but HORIZON customer service isn't willing to accommodate me. By the time something actually DOES break, what do you think the chances are that the machine will still be under warranty??? Slim to nil! NICE customer service Horizon. Disgusted with the whole machine and process because of Customer Service. RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!

    Had mine a week and it clicks

    Noisy
    Cup Holder Low And Cheap


    Have owned it a week and assembled in about an hour. Worked ok initially and after about 30 minutes started to click 3x every rotation of the main wheel. Annoying to work out on a new machine that is noisy. In identifying the problem the cup holder needs to be removed and snapped in half. It's fairly useless since it's around your ankles anyways but, none the less made of very cheap plastic.

    Very smooth!

    I'm trying to lose weight and keep it off. An important part of my strategy is daily walks. With winter approaching, I have been looking for a way to keep in shape when it's too nasty out to walk. Driving to the gym is something that takes extra time so I decided to get an elliptical trainer. I've also considered Nordictrack, Sole and Precor models. The sales person at Dunhams in Royal Oak was very helpful in pointing out features that were important to me. One such feature is the wheels that ride on top of tubes instead of in little troughs that can collect debris and make the elliptical less smooth to use. At first, I ordered a Nordictrack online because it cost about $200 less than the EX-59 and I cancelled my order when I saw how smooth the EX-59 is and how well it's made. I managed to find the EX-59 on clearance so I got a very good price that was not much more than the Nordictrack I had ordered earlier. Assembly was not as easy as some reviewers here have reported. Holding 2 teflon washers in place while inserting a bolt through was not something I found to be that easy, but overall I'd say assembly was well thought out and it's obvious this thing well built. The console is a bit basic but that doesn't bother me. It is very handy to be able to simply tap one of the resistance levels around the perimeter of the console to get the brake engaged at that resistance. The EX-59 heart rate monitor seems as accurate as the ones on the $5000 Precor and Life Fitness ellipticals at the gym. The EX-59 has no power switch so I've dedicated a power strip next to the elliptical to shut it off when I'm done. Pros: Construction Simplicity Natural "flat ellipse" motion Smoothness - as smooth as those $5000 commercial ellipticals at the gym 15 minutes on the elliptical can equal 45 minutes of walking Cons: No power switch Loud console beeps Only 10 resistance levels

    I've used the elliptical a few times and so far it's great. Delivery and customer service regarding the delivery were pretty much abysmal. My guaranteed indoor delivery was actually delivered outdoors. I'll note that I tried to resolve this with Horizon customer service via e-mail and haven't received a response in weeks. At least you put together a good elliptical, Horizon.
