I was looking for a non-impact workout because of neck problems. This eliptical gives a heart pumping, sweat producing workout in very little time with very little impact. Very quiet machine. Very smooth. Great value for the price and a good workout besides! What else can you ask for?

The computer quit working in three months. The axel is not solid. It is welded, two piece axel. The right side axel has broken twice at the weld. I am putting it in the trash and looking for a good one.

I researched ellipticals for a couple of weeks before making this purchase. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, but I was weary of buying a sub par product. For the price, this machine is well worth it. I assembled it myself in about an hour. I hear from many people here that it has a short stride, but being a woman and 5'11.. I've had no problems and the stride feels fine. After a month of daily use there are a few sqeaks and rattles that have developed but they are normal and have developed in every elliptical that I, or anyone else I know, has owned. So far I am very satisfied. It's a sturdy machine and should only need monthy tightening of the bolts (very quick process) to insure that nothing gets loose over time. It's not a fancy machine, but it delivers a great work out, and won't cost you thousands of dollars.

I've had this machine for about a year or so. It lasts pretty long, but there are flaws to it. I assembled this by myself, but it's probably better if you have two ppl.

It's pretty good considering:
1. you can adjust the bottom parts so it won't wobble about on the ground.
2. the feet pads are pretty big for anyone.
3. you can assemble it by yourself (even though two ppl would be a lot better).

However, it's not great considering:
1. it makes a lotta noise. Sounds like someone's using a blender.
2. the screws aren't that strong; after using it 5x or so the handle starts to turn along w/your body when your shifting back and forth (though you can still tighten the screws back up, but still.. it's a hassle).

The Stamina 55-1771 is very nicely engineered and built, with sturdy construction, quiet running, good read-out features (including pulse rate) and the right movement action. I had to apply a few quirts of WD-40 to some of the pivot points to quiet an initial sqeek, but then you wouldn't want it shipped with lots of oil on it. It is a bit more complex to assemble than your usual out-of-the-box, pop-together job, but certainly well worth it considering what you get for the price. At 100 lbs, I won't be lugging it around the house, and it does not collapse, but it certainly is exactly what I wanted for a nice workout.

I have only had mine for about a week but I think it works great! It was easy to assemble, with some already done for me. I noticed someone mentioned theirs moved, I put a yoga mat under mine and it does not move, and makes little to no noise. I feel it in my arms and legs and I just think it does work. I also purchased it so it would be less stress on my knees, but I still have to wear my knee brace. It is better than a treadmill though if anyone has similar problems.

The machine is pretty solid and so far, hasn't been an issue at all. The only problem I have is that some of the pieces aren't set on the machine and when I was putting it together, I had to take some of it apart to fix what they messed up. Other than that, great machine.....

This machine is ok for the money but the foot petal keeps falling out. It has done it 3 times and I am now looking for ways to return it.

I bought this elliptical three month ago unwilling to pay big bucks (over $1,000) for recommended models, hoping to make an exclusion from the rule.

No, it did not happened. Starting with the errors in assemble instrucions in the manual, inaccurate display readings, and so on, ending with a squicky and noisy piece of ... equipment.

Their customer service is just a place to order parts, although they sent me some parts I broke when assemling - a threat on the bolt, a couple of broken (by me) plastic part. I noticed that I'm using this machine more rarely because I just don't like the way it works.

If I new what I was going to get, I did not buy it.
