I should have listned to people when they said this thing makes a lot of noise in their reviews.
This junk really makes a lot of noise. And the noise is coming from the wheel which comes pre-assembled. So there is nothing you can do about it. You can't even oil it (since you can't open the wheel). I wanted to give the company a call so that i can either return it or have someone come fix it and when I called them the automated voice kept me in a loop for more than 20 minutes and i gave up. For 20 minutes i tried connecting to a live person, but in vain. So dont count of the 60 days warrenty it has!
Now the noise has gotten louder and is coming from all over the machine. I made sure I screw the knots and bolts tight, so i know it is not because of that. I even re-greesed everything.
Plus the calorie reading is completely misleeding. Gives you a false reading. I used to paddle at 60 (speed) for 30 minutes when i first bought the machine and i used to burn about 200 calories. Now i paddle at 75 for 30 minutes at a higher resistance and the machines still shows i burn 200 calories, which can not be true. So i guess the machines is only using time to predict calorie burn- which is just plain ridiculous!
Also when you increase the resistance, it makes a loud hissing noise. I can barely hear my TV (at a loud volume) when I am using this machine. I should have spent a little more money and bought a better Elliptical. :( Pros:
Its small, so it doesn't take much space. There is a heart rate reader (not sure how accurate it is though), speed monitor, calorie monitor (useless), distance calculator, and 5 programs.
It is pretty cheap.
Not too bad if you dont mind the noise. Noise is the biggest problem... drives me crazy when i can't hear my TV 5 feet away.
