Really, Really Happy With This Purchase!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Schwinn 420 Elliptical Trainer (2012 Model) (Sports)
Well built, feels very sturdy
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.
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)
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.

This does not take 2 + people to build. I took it apart alone and rebuilt it myself twice (once when I put it together the first time and once when I moved).
