For now though, the jury is still out.

My experience, has been a downright nightmarish waste of time and money.

The Customer Service management team is very unresponsive and rude.

My wife and I purchased the Smooth CE 3.2 back in March of 2006. We have been using it each 3 to 4 times a week for 1/2 hour workouts. Works great and we have had no problems. The foot platforms had begun to squeak after a few months, but some lubrication cleared it right up. Nothing squeaks on it now. The action is smooth through all resistance ranges, and we are definately glad we purchased it. However, that is not to say that I don't have some complaints: I wish the stride were a little longer. My wife and I are pretty short (both around 5'6'') and we both think the stride isn't long enough. Also, the heart rate on the computer takes about 30 seconds to spool up and accurately read your heart rate once you grab the sensors. Finally, you get a water bottle, but no place to attach it to the machine. These are my biggest gripes, however, the build quality, and the exercise action are so far superior to the other $1200 or less elliptical machines (Sears, Wlamart, etc.) that I can forgive these small grievances. In summation, if your not into gimmicks, and want a machine that will last a ling time, under hard use, day in and day out, buy the Smooth.

I received my CE 2.1 (same body as this model, just different computer) the other day and was quite impressed with the overall engineering of this machine. My wife and I have used the machine around 4 or 5 times and have noted the following problems. First, the plug that came with the machine was for a 230 volt outlet (not the typical in home wall socket), so instead of rewiring the wall outlet, I found another home appliance with the same size plug and used it. Next, initially, we had some problems with the computer resetting, but they have seemed to quit for now. Third, when I set the resistence to a higher level than 10, there is a terrible grinding sound from the metal flywheel contacting the magnet that provides resistance. The machine gives a great workout at levels under 10, so this is not a big deal, but I will try to have it fixed. Last, the unit has begun to squeak very badly at the point where the right arm lever attaches to the frame of the machine. I'm usually the last to complain about anything and will always try to "make do" if at all possible, but I can't ignore these problems. I admit I have not been able to contact the company, and therefore I am holding off on judging quite yet. I hope I can get these issues resolved and am confident I will enjoy the machine if this goes smoothly. I am only posting this because I relied so heavily on the other reviews here and at other sites and feel that since no one can try these machines out before purchasing, they should at least have as much info as possible. Again, this seems to be a very sturdy machine and should last for years once I get all the kinks ironed out. Hope this helps!

Verified Purchase
It took longer than expected to receive the trainer. Once it arrived I was able to get it into the house and get it assembled without too much trouble. First use went great and both my wife and oldest kid were excited to use it. I worked out for just over 30 minutes and went to work. Within the next couple of hours I got a call from my oldest kid that he was working out, but it was squeaking horribly. The squeak was coming from the left ski-pole upright. I called Smooth and reported the problem and they indicated that it must not have gotten sufficient grease from the factory. I took it apart and applied some additional grease on the joint which seemed to correct the problem; however, it started again after about 10 minutes of use. I called Smooth a second time and they are arranging to have a repair person come out to take a look.

Overall, the design and quality appear great, very heavy duty construction and well put together with lots of finishing touches.

I'll update again after a week once the repair tech has an opportunity to make corrections and hopefully resolve the problem.

For now though, the jury is still out.

It has been nearly two years since I wrote my original review and indicated the Jury was still out. The repair tech did apply additional grease which fixed the squeaking problem and I started happily using the elliptical trainer. I'm happy to report that I'm still using it currently on a daily basis. Between me, my wife, and my children, it gets 1/2 hour to 3 hours of use per day and is currently working great. The right upright arm started squeaking in November, but knowing what was done to fix the left one, I broke it down and applied my own grease and it has been working quietly since.

Those interested in working out in the comfort of their own home would be well advised to steer clear of Smooth Fitness and their CE 3.2 machine. When I purchased the machine in early September, I paid $1700 for it and was able to use it a mere five times. That equates to $340 per actual use of the machine--not quite the great value I thought I was purchasing.

The plastic pieces that shield various joints on the machine are terrible quality and don't even mate together properly. Worse, the screws used to attach them are overly large, and the act of tightening the screws actually rubs away plastic, creating fine plastic dust that has no problem getting into the rotating parts of the machine and making a very awful squeaking sound. Granted its not something that a little cleaning and lubricant can't fix, but the problem will quickly recur and you will spend considerable time partially disassembling the machine.

The ride is fairly smooth and quiet, that is, unless your bearings fail after less than a week of ownership, as mine did. In that case, you will be working out to the roar of a jet engine, and could likely find yourself in a place you definitely do not want to be: in the hands of Smooth's service department.

After nearly a month of dealing with them, my machine is still in no better condition than when I originally contacted them, and my dealing with them have been marred by their incompetence and disinterest in resolving the issue.

Beware the red-herring 30 day "satisfaction guarantee" as the ability to return the item has nothing whatsoever to do with satisfaction. Instead the ability to return the product within 30 days is 100% contingent on retaining the original packaging.
