This model is extremely smooth and very quiet.
B. Good
2nd Update: After using this machine for 45 to an hour daily for nearly a year, it has devolved in to the noisiest elliptical trainer I have ever owned.
Robert A. Smith
There is a nice variety of programs with varying levels, and you can create custom programs as well.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )

I'd been shopping for an elliptical for a few weeks before receiving the Schwinn 450 for review. There were several makes and models that I compared at online and also tested at a few local sporting goods stores.

The Schwinn 450 elliptical is sturdy and offered the features I was looking for. Here's a short video review to give you a better idea of the machine.

Note: If the display is not something you really need, the Schwinn 420 is an excellent alternative to the 450.

After working our treadmill to an untimely demise, we started to think about replacement, and my wife and I both agreed that we'd rather have an elliptical. There were a ton of things to consider, and lots to choose from. We did a lot of research online, and price compared to the physical stores before deciding on the Schwinn 450. It's a new model, so there wasn't a ton of user feedback, but the earlier Schwinn models were well reviewed and well priced, so we took a leap of faith with the 450. I couldn't be happier. The package, due to its size, was delivered by ABF, and it arrived about 4 days earlier than Amazon's estimation.

This unit took me about 3 hours to assemble, but it could be done quicker. It wasn't difficult, I just took my time. It's only the second step in the assembly that requires a 2nd person, the rest is a one person job. A word of advice on the assembly: don't overtighten when attaching the mast or the pedal arms to the crank assembly. If you overtighten when attaching the pedal arms to the crank assembly, you may experience a "clicking" sound when in use. If you overtighten when attaching the mast, you may experience a creak similar to bedsprings. Both can be easily remedied by loosening each hexnut or bolt (depending on which is making noise) just a quarter turn. I initially overtightened both, and having loosened the appropriate hardware, the machine is now virtually silent. We have this in our basement, but I doubt I'd wake my wife up early in the morning if this was upstairs.

It's soon for me to be writing this review, but I'm excited about my Schwinn 450 elliptical. A few years ago I bought an elliptical I didn't like. It was just too hard to use and too noisy. A friend of mine has the Schwinn 420 and had recommended that model. When I started shopping again for an elliptical, I saw that the 450 is an upgrade of the 420.

I'm only 5 4" and just turned 50. I do hike and walk regularly, but I've known for some time I need to really increase my exercise program and I've just not been getting myself to the gym like I used to. I was concerned about the 20 inch stride on this machine, but it's no problem at all. I'm very comfortable with the stride. The arm bars are a bit of a reach for me when fully extended, but I prefer the stationary handles any way. To use the arm bars I have to lean forward.

The first package arrived so beat up I refused it. Large chunks of the box had been torn away, exposing the insides, where Styrofoam was broken all over the inside. The CEVA company that delivers really throws these things around! The second package arrived slightly battered, but I accepted and all was well.

It took my son and I 55 minutes to put the elliptical together. The directions were amazingly clear and well illustrated. I was really impressed with how they packaged the screws and washers, with everything clearly labeled. I used an adjustable wrench where it said the 10mm was needed. All the parts went together easily, and we had no problems screwing anything in. We didn't experience any holes out of alignment as some other reviewers seemed too.

Upon first using, we noticed some clicking sound. Fortunately, I had read about that and how to adjust here in the reviews.

I purchased my first elliptical about a months ago, spent about 2 hours putting it together. However, step 3 was impossible to attached 2 (what I now now are vital screws) screws to stabilizer bar. I was only able to get one in on the first machine. After assembly, the machine worked fine, however, a loud banging noise was emanating from the wheel. I called Schwinn 3 times. Finally, after an almost hour wait, I spoke to a representative who told me to stabilize the machine. It was as stable as possible, then she told me to remove arms & pedals and reattach. Still noise. I called Amazon, they sent me a replacement and we had the original machine shipped back (no charge). Second machine had the same defect. This time we could not get either screw into the stabilizer bar. The 2 parts simply do not line up correctly. It is a defect. Even if you loosen the screws from step 2, they still do not line up. Needless to say, that was it. I did not go any further and I am now sending my second machine back. Amazon, has been terrific through this whole process. Also, good luck getting a hold of Schwinn customer service. Terrible waits. You need to block out at least an hour or more just to be on hold.
