I've only had it for a few days, so I'll update this in a few months.
First, I wanted to comment on Walmart's awesome Customer Service. I had it delivered site-to-store, and it ended up being a week late arriving. Before I had even contacted Walmart about it, they contacted me and gave me a $25 egift card for the inconvience. Then, the price dropped online before I got my product, and I contacted them about being refunded the diffrence in price, and right away I was refunded.
Now, onto the product. It took about 2 hours for me and my husband to assemble (That's start to finish, including unpackaging everything and making sure it was all there). Assembly was pretty easy, with clear instructions. We were missing one small piece of hardware and my husband broke a bolt while screwing it in. I've contact Schwinn about it, and it should be arriving in a few days (make sure to register your prodcut with them right away and hang onto the atleast the e-mail reciept from WAlmart). I was very annoyed at being on hold for over 30 minutes! And the guy, although helpful, was not apologetic or friendly.
Luckily, the bolt and other missing piece isn't hindering us from starting to use it. It gives an awesome workout!!!!! I used to run all the time, but I've since had a child and it's winter, so it's nice to have this machin to workout on. I was VERY pleased to see how QUIET it is! The only thing is that I wish the beep sound it makes when you press buttoms on the console wasn't so dang loud. I'm glad I went with an elliptical that has atleast an 18" stride length (well, this one is 17.5", technically). Anything shorter would have been way uncomfortable (I'm 5'5"). I would still prefer a longer stride length, but those all cost thousands of dollars.
So, so far, I'm very pleased. Now, if it'll hold up for a few years and remian is good shape, then it was a perfect buy.
Oh, and the screen is small and kinda hard to read, but it hasn't bothered me at all. I also don't care about watching my speed/calorie loss count constantly, though, so that could bother you.
