When I first got the box it looked like it was going to be pretty complicated to put together. It was very easy and I love this piece of equipment. I live in an apartment above someone and you won't have to worry about noise. It's extremely quiet.
I am happy with this purchase. I think for the price I paid, it was a good investment. I've seen some reviews complaining that it's like riding a tricycle. I didn't necessarily think so, but it's true that it's like a miniature version of a gym elliptical (which should be obvious from the size of this thing). I'm 5'5", though, so maybe for people who are 6' or something it might be too small. I like how I can use this while sitting down or standing up. I was originally considering putting it under my work desk, but it is a bit too big (length-wise, especially) to fit under my desk since I have a lot of cords down there for my computers, etc.
I purchased the balance trainer because I need a LOT of work on my balance. I'm flat footed, and it makes it extremely difficult to balance on one leg with several different yoga poses. I'm practicing each evening and hoping this is the trainer I need to help with my balance issues.
