I only paid $150 for this elliptical, and for that price, I think it is a really great machine. Pros:
-It's sturdy. Doesn't wiggle or move at all when I use it. I am only 115 lbs, so I don't know how it does on someone larger. But the weight limit goes to 300 lbs!
-It doesn't make any noise. Easy to watch TV while doing it because it's so quiet!
-It's an excellent price
-It is the perfect size for my apartment. Not too bulky or big
-Site to store got it to my store for free! The associates were nice enough to help my husband load it in our car (fit in the backseat, but not the trunk). The package is about 80 lbs, but my husband and I were easily able to carry it inside by ourselves.
-The computer is decent. Takes two AA batteries. It's not fancy, but it tells you the time, calories burned, miles, etc. The heart rate monitor worked great for me too. Cons:
-The assembly. Oh goodness. I am very good at assembling things. However, this took me about 3 hours. It came in a million pieces! The tools they provide are bad, so get your own. Tightening nuts took forever. The directions have pictures, arrows, and minimal words. It would help A LOT if there were more words!! Assembly was tedious & difficult, although I am only one person, so maybe it would be easier with two heads & two sets of hands!
-Sort of related to the assembly, but I ended up not being able to get on one of the plastic decorative coverings. The place where the screws went were not ridged whatsoever so the screw couldn't screw in! Not a functional issue but it does look a little ugly with all the bolts exposed. Maybe I'll glue the decorative covers on or something.
-The downward slope is a bit annoying. My feet slide towards the top which hurts my toes somewhat but it should be bearable. Overall, 4 out of 5 stars!!! This is a really great value.
