4.0 out of 5 stars This one works for me
I bought this item for it's small size and portability. I was able to assemble it within an hour. It fits into an otherwise unusable corner behind a door without interfering with entrance into the room. I just shut the door when I'm on the machine. It is lightweight enough to move if necessary. Upping the resistance is as easy as turning a knob. It comes with it's own...

My suggestion to all who are interested in a elliptical is to TEST them out at the various stores IN PERSON. DO NOT BUY ONE WITHOUT A TEST RIDE.

This is a piece of junk that works real good until the cheap metal breaks and they do NOT stand behind their product.

I bought this item for it's small size and portability. I was able to assemble it within an hour. It fits into an otherwise unusable corner behind a door without interfering with entrance into the room. I just shut the door when I'm on the machine. It is lightweight enough to move if necessary. Upping the resistance is as easy as turning a knob. It comes with it's own simple to use computer with time, speed, distance and calories. For an exercise that targets your arms more - wear wrist weights.

I have carpet and would recommend placing it on a hard surface if possible to make it more stable. I cut a board to fit underneath it.

The noise is not an issue if you wear headphones while using the machine like I do. My machine is in my bedroom and I would not recommend riding it if you do not want to disturb someone who is sleeping.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, December 20, 2007
This review is from: ORBITREK PLATINUM
I am wondering if I have the same Orbitrek Platinum as some of the people reviewing,
I have owned an Orbitrek Platinum over two years now
and it works quite well and it certainly has not fallen apart.
I use it for 30 minutes 4 days per week and have no major problems with it,
granted it is not the quietest machine available,
the noise is not loud enough to disturb someone in another room.
