Product Description

Amazon.com

Schwinn Elliptical Machines are designed to deliver a comfortable workout and maximum results. With easy to use features, simple assembly, and a unique console designed for a customized workout program, the award-winning Schwinn 420 Model is no exception.

Features that distinguish the Schwinn 420 include BioFit comfort design for a more natural elliptical path with multiple position handles that provide the option of engaging or resting the upper body. The bi-directional pedals can be moved forward or backwards to engage more muscles in the legs as you exercise. Meanwhile, the perimeter weighted flywheel delivers smooth, consistent workouts and the over-sized stabilizers and levelers provide a solid workout platform, even on uneven floor surfaces.

Thanks to an integrated heart rate monitor you can maximize your workout and stay within your appropriate training zone. Meanwhile the multi-function computer provides eight workout programs, six course programs, and a custom workout option allowing for a highly varied and individualized program. Finally, built in speakers keep your music flowing.

Pros
-----
Well built, feels very sturdy
Quiet operation
Smooth motion
Easy to select courses, duration, intensity, etc.
Gives amazing workouts
Has a nice e-book reader, which allows me to put my Amazon Kindle Fire on it, surf the internet, watch movies, listen to music, etc.

Cons
----
Took 3 hours to build, requires at least 2 people
The display is not back-lit, so depending on your room lighting it may be difficult to read
The mp3 speakers are laughable (my cell phone speaker and Amazon Kind Fire speaker are twice as loud and clear)
The fan is also laughable (I have it on all the time, but it barely moves any air, and you can hardly tell the difference between low, medium, and high)

Overall
-------
I wasn't expecting much from the display, fan, or speakers, and it's a shame they're all underwhelming. Looking past that though, the elliptical itself is amazing. Best bang for buck elliptical in my opinion. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a well-built budget elliptical. Really, the only reason I'm not giving it a perfect score is I hope Schwinn sees my Cons and improves them in later iterations of this product. But personally they do not bug me, and they shouldn't prevent you from making this purchase. I have a nearby computer with kick-butt speakers to get some music going. And the e-reader holder entirely makes up for the weak display. Toss a Kindle Fire in the e-reader holder, and you have a 7" touch-screen with everything you can imagine at your finger tips.

Purchased the Schwinn 420 for Christmas. In-the-box weight is about 170 pounds so you need help moving it around to unpack. Assemble was pretty easy and took about 1 1/2 hours. Comes with Allen wrench and Phillips screw driver on long end (wish they has separated the tools). The machine works fine, very quiet and easy to use. Why Schwinn/Nautilus would have designed such a poor console to track time, distance, calories, etc. is really beyond me. The display area is about 4 x 2 inches and is exceedingly hard to see. The numbers displayed are hard to read and seems to be reflected against the background so that you actually see two numbers offset from each other. Besides, the lines of the numbers are pencil thin and can only be read in good light. The fan is pretty useless as is the speaker array. There is a good place to hold an iPad or Nook and a huge area against which you could lean an iPad. The console will only keep track of the stats for one user; everyone else needs to use a "guest" designation and all stats are lost when the machine is turned off. Five stars for the machine, 0-1 for the console. Shame on you Schwinn!

First my general information:
I am a 5'3" female. I've visited a lot of gyms, and used a lot of ellipticals in the last 10 years so I'm familiar with the different types and what works for me. I needed a machine that I could do low-impact exercises with and still get a great workout without feeling like I'm on a stair stepper. I tried this model in the store first before buying it as each machine works your body differently.

Assembly:
The assembly was relatively easy, taking one person about 2 hours from start to finish. All the major parts come pre-assembled, including the wheel, pedals, and console. The majority of the assembly is just screwing those parts together in the right order. The hardest part was attaching the pedals and handlebars where they pivot (a lubed rod is used). Because of the snug fit, the rod had to pushed hard into place. Other than that, assembly was relatively straight-forward thanks to the easy-to-read directions. The illustrations are easy to follow and gets rid of most of the guess work.

Use:
This particular machine has an 18" stride length, which is just right for my height. I was wary of the machine being too large for me and having to stretch to reach the handle bars with each stride. While my arms are fully extended with each motion forward, they are not overstretched. It's at just the right distance away to be comfortable. Any more and I wouldn't be able to use them without leaning into it. But as I get a good speed going, I find myself leaning into the machine as I would if I were running. As I use it, it targets my thighs the most, in both forward and backwards motion. If I stand up perfectly straight in more of a walking position, I can also feel the burn in my glutes.

first the good. Well made steel construction, smooth and quiet glide. Large size, looks and feels like something in a gym. Two hours to assemble is not bad considering the amount of parts.
They have added a fan and an MP3 connection with ipad holder and water bottle holder that was not on the previous version.
Price is good on first look...but.
Now the bad. No way to adjust machine for size of user. If you are under 5' 9" this machine will be a stretch for you to feel comfortable on.
The info panel, fan and ipod holder face upward, about 45 degrees, unless you are 6' 4" you will not feel the fan or see the info screen and seeing your ipad or magazine is out of the question.
The info screen is not lit or LED so it is useless and way too small, they made it smaller than previous models to incorporate the other features. Unless you have super perfect eyesite there is no way to see or read this thing. Fan is small and weak even on full speed.
I called Schwinn and asked about updates and maybe recalls and they said they have no complaints or plans for changes at the moment. If they made the machine slightly adjustable and put the info console on a goose neck that could move up or down this would be an excellent buy.
The info readout must be changed to LED or something brighter before it will be usable to less than perfect eyesite users.It is virtually useless to us and we now just use the machine without any of the built in features such as heart rate and exercise programs because we can't see them.
The screen is tiny and has tons of info(I think) but not viewable. Schwinn. MAKE THE SCREEN LARGER, keep the fan but put it some place else.
I guess I should have bought a more expensive unit, this is all I could afford to spend.
Sorry for the long review but it needs to be told
