I wanted to buy something that was more compact than your typical workout machines and I wanted it to be very easy for storing before & after my workout and that's what I got. After reading all of the reviews, I decided on this machine. I was prepared and knew going in, that once I received it, I would most likely have to battle the holes for the screws, as most reviews said the holes were not the right size to be able to fit the screws. They were right. I had to use a 3/8 drill bit to make the holes the correct size so the screws would fit. It took some time, but it worked. I had obviously received a machine that had been returned, for what I could only guess was for the holes not being the right size. If I did not have a 3/8 drill bit, there would have absolutely been no way that I could have assembled the machine, and I would have had to return it. Anyway, it's working fine now. It is very quiet as the other reviews state. It is definitely not like any of the ellipticals I've used over the past 10-15 years. The basic level provides plenty of resistance and my legs get tired after just 10 minutes and I have to stop, when on other ellipticals, I was able to go for 30 minutes non stop. I believe the calorie counter is way under with what it displays, so I just don't pay attention to that anymore. I would recommend that you put something underneath the center of the machine as I noticed a line of black marks that appeared on the carpet. I do use it most everyday and I will keep it. I like the convenience of having it my home and being able to use it while I watch t.v. It's nice not having to "get ready" to go workout by having to drive in your car somewhere else and fight the weather elements as well. I would recommend this machine to anyone who wants to have something that's easy to move, compact in size, & wants a quiet workout in their own home.
