I have used this thing almost everyday since I bought and really enjoy it. It is small, compact, and can still hold my weight which is 260lbs its limit is 275lbs. The downside is the display it has is very cheap and unimpressive. If you have to stop to answer the phone or go do whatever it resets everything within thirty seconds, which is kinda frustrating. The other thing I guess was the assembly. It wasn't hard, but I could see it being a problem for some people. Some of the parts took a bit of effort to get in correctly, but once everything is said and done it works fine for me.

We've been using this elliptical for about a month now and are very pleased with the build quality and the low noise during use. It did take quite a while to put together, but the instructions and packaging were fantastic. The user interface is a little hard to get used to and somewhat simplistic, but do not impact the workout you get from it. We compared this to other machines up to $1,000 and liked this one the best. The price at Amazon was $100 cheaper than our local sporting goods store and that was before tax would have been added on. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I've been using this trainer for a couple weeks now and it has been great so far. Very smooth movement and the interface is pretty straightforward and simple to use. The preset programs work great for me (using the fat burning one currently to drop some unwanted LBs). The machine went together easily as well. There are a couple steps where having two pairs of hands will help out tremendously. Great machine, great price!

Overall the machine is decent for the price. You get what you pay for, but I bought this elliptical last September and within two months on of the wheels completely fell apart. I am well below the weight capacity for this machine so I wasn't really sure how this happened, but the company sent me two replacement wheels because parts and labor was still under warranty. Since then that part of the warranty has expired (its only 90 days) and I have now gone through four wheels on this machine and at the price of $18 a piece. To me that is a little too much to charge for a replacement wheel. This is the only real problem I've had with the machine. So if you don't mind replacing the wheels every 2 to 3 months than this is your machine.

This machine was easy to assemble and took less than 90 minutes to put together by myself.
The machine is heavy-duty and the action is very smooth while offering effective resistance for a good workout. This machine is also very quite with very little noise.
I bought this model because it has heart-rate sensors on the handlebars which is a very big benefit when trying to burn fat effectively.
Unfortunitely, the heart-rate sensors do not keep accurate track of my heart rate. While gripping the handlebars during my workout, the heart rate read-out stays in the 80's range, even while my heart rate exceeds 120 BPM (beats per minute), even after adjusting my hand grip to several different positions, the heart rate was still not reading properly.
Overall a good machine but if your serious about burning fat, go with a better name brand so that the heart rate sensors work correctly.
