I wanted a full size elliptical but didn't have the space or budget. So, I decided to give this a try. I use it standing and so does my son. It works well. It's relatively smooth for a small machine. It gives a good leg/cardio workout. It's definitely worth the price. Easy to move as well as it's not overly heavy.
This unit has very solid build quality. There is a built in handle that folds out of the way. This unit works great under a table or desk or in front of the couch while watching TV. The unit is fairly quiet and the movement is smooth. Its great for older people who can use the motorized mode or anyone one looking for a workout in manual mode. The unit has 3 different speed settings. The motorized mode is nice to help you get the motion down before going to the manual mode. There is a display that keeps track of time and steps. The unit includes a rubber mat, but stays in place on its own. A great way to get our blood moving while sitting and to get in some cardio exercise.
This was the first piece of exercise equipment I've ever purchased and overall I'm content with it. The only thing I wish it had was a mechanism to make the workout more difficult on the lower body. The hydraulic cylinder works fine for making the workout more difficult for the upper body. I have used resistance bands to anchor the seat to the base of the monitor stand - as a result, when my seat moves back when I row, I now have some resistance. I prop up my phone on the monitor and watch shows while I row to make the hour go by. It's good cardio.
