The assembly wasn't bad at all. It works fine, you have to remember it is a $*** elliptical. So if you are expecting the nicest workout equipment ever, maybe not for you. If you want something that gets the job done and lets you workout inside, then it's a good buy
I wanted something that would not take up a lot of room. I was a bit skeptical because of reviews regarding the hand grips, but have found them to be adequate. I am not tall (about 5'5") but they are sufficient and I can use them. You may need to be a bit creative in how you use them but I think that actually makes for a better workout. This is something that I can hop on while watching TV, talking on the phone, etc (I have even used it while brushing my teeth--just 2 minutes, but, hey--every little bit helps). It is sturdy and does not move on the floor. It was simple to put together. I have no complaints. I have had it for about 6-8 weeks now. I rated it 4 stars on durability solely because I think it needs more time than that to adequately judge but so far it seems durable. I also bought the mini-elliptical sold by OS, and MUCH prefer this, although they are both good and I could recommend either. This was cheaper which is a plus.
Extremely easy to assemble. Light weight so it can be moved about the house with ease. The hand grips are comfortable and give enough resistance. Im 5 4' . While exercising my heart rate was raised and I did break a sweat. Definitely a cost effective way to exercise in my livingroom.
