Bought the elliptical in December. Have used it about three times a week since then. One bolt came loose while in use in one time and I was able to just put it back and haven't had trouble with it since. It gets creaky, but WD40 helps a lot and after 5-10 minutes into working out the creaks mostly go away. After heavy use in the past week, I noticed the left arm suddenly lowered and it was hitting against the base of the machine. Turns out the welding on the bottom of the leg started separating. Called the customer service department and within 10 minutes it was all taken care of because I bought the 2 year protection plan, which is totally worth it. If anything goes wrong they reimburse your Overstock account and you can buy the exact same machine or a different one. It is going to take about 3 weeks until I get a new machine but at least I will actually get a new machine. Overall it's been good to me and gives me a good workout.

The machine is functional, which is, I suppose, all you can really ask for. None of the electronic components work though because the wrong or broken parts were sent. The tension knob doesn't really work for more than five minutes, so I'm constantly stopping my workout to readjust the tension of the machine. But, it's functional enough for me to work up a sweat.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Machine was chipped and damaged when it arrived
I would highly recommend that no one buy this product. I was so excited to have bought am elliptical, but I canít even tell you how disappointed I am! The most important part broke two times, I am 5'9'' and weigh 125 lbs and broke it twice within 2 months?! The metal and the welding is not done to any level of quality, I think I used this 10-15 times in total for an average duration on 40min. Please donít waste your time on even think about buying this product unless you want to fall on your face (not even joking).
Please tell us about the quality of the product. this is a VERY cheap product DONT BUY!
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? all parts were not included also parts kept breaking
I have a very short inseam so the stride is a little long for me, puts pressure on my knees. If I move my feet forward over the lip of the foot board it works much better for me. A good machine in all respects for the money.
How accurate was the sizing? very

I was in the market for a new piece of excercise equipment after my treadmill finally went out. Seeing that live currently in a upstairs apartment, a treadmill did'nt seem practical. I checked with all the big retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, Academy and Dick's. They were all priced about the same. So I Google searched and found it sold here for about $60 cheaper and with the money left over I purchased the 2 year warranty to go with it. I am happy with the machine so far, only been using it for a couple of days. It feels really stable when using it and I am big guy at 6'2 195. I was a little concerned at first that my knees might hit the arm bars, but hasnt happened. Overall I would recommend this elliptical to anyone on a budget looking for a quility piece.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good so far
