I can see why this machine is a Consumer Reports best buy. It has to be one of the smoothest ellipticals I have ever been on. For the longest time I spent my mornings working out at a gym on a lot of different types of exercise machines including ellipticals. And I have to say this machine is as goo... (Read more)

I've had this trainer for a year now and I still love it. It works as well as and even better than the machines at my local gym. The incline, the one touch resistance, and the programs are great and very user friendly. I've lost all my weight and I feel so healthy! The only problem I have with t... (Read more)

I got the Audio Strider 990 July 2008. Had NordicTrack do the assembly and machine functions beautfully. I use it 45 minutes every other day. My wife uses it the other days. Between us we have lost 60 pounds.

As far as the exercising goes, this machine is excellent. I love it. I always use it on consecutive days along with my treadmill workout. I gives you the calorie burn workout everyone wants. The intensity is always there if you want it via a click of a button for the incline and/or intensity in ... (Read more)
Machine is great!!
By Happy (NM) on Apr 9, 2009
I had some problems initially with how the machine was put together by the technician who came to my house. I paid extra so I would not have to put it together. The next technician was no better and finally the third that was sent by NordicTrack was excellent and fixed the problem. I love the mac... (Read more)
Very versatile machine
By none (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) on Apr 9, 2009
I had to hire a professional to put it together, but it works well and is achieving the desired results. The pulse (heart-rate) feature is a bit iffy. Other than that, I have no complaints and am actually very glad I purchased it.
Good Unit, But Don't Use the Financing!
By TiggerPilot (New Hope, PA) on Apr 9, 2009
SUMMARY: Buy the unit for moderate home use but pay cash or use your own credit!Good home unit. overall quality is good although there was some issues in assembly with the attachment if the arms. It was nearly impossible to tighten the three bolts per arm down and I don't think I could ever back the... (Read more)
I love it!!!!
By Hotter (Carlsbad, NM) on Apr 9, 2009
I love my Nordic track. The best elliptical I have ever used. It is smooth, stable and practically noise free.I have had it for one year now and used it frequently. Still as good as new. I have back and knee trouble, but on this I can pretty much exersise as much as I want without problems. By using... (Read more)
Great workout, but problematic details
By Timpani (Pasadena, CA) on Apr 9, 2009
This machine took a really long time to put together, and after spending all this money, I didn't want to pay someone to put it together. Once it was together, the belt slipped off a few times. We also had to cut the speaker wire, since it makes a buzzing sound when not in use but plugged in -- pe... (Read more)
Its right on the mark
By TED-Natick (Natick, MA) on Apr 10, 2009
We've been using the Audiostrider just about every day and we love it. We get a great workout and its so convenient. There are a variety of programs that fit into our individual styles, so that each of us can use the machine to our liking. You get a sense of total body involvement and as a result y... (Read more)
good for taller people
By iammrniceguy (Mansfield, OH) on Apr 10, 2009
great sized elliptical for taller people (i am 6'3"). some holes were hard to get the screws in to, but you will have that. always get a buzzing sound when the elliptical is plugged in and no mp3 player is hooked up. other than that, i don't have any complaints!
Great machine for the price
By Kayla (Fargo, ND) on Apr 15, 2009
I received this machine on Monday and so far absolutely love it! I read alot of reviews mostly on Sears website of a clicking noise in the wheel and I have not had any troubles with that. The one thing that does disappoint me is that it does not tell you how far you have traveled, it just tells you ... (Read more)

I had nordic track assemble the machine. Within a few months the arm pieces required tightening every few days which is a real inconvenience. I expected better.
By Cooky (Muskegon, MI) on May 7, 2009
I purchased mine on line 3 years ago and my husband had it together for me in less than an hour. I have never had any problems with it, I work out on it 5 days a week for 20-30 minutes and it still works like new.It is very smooth and quiet!
I love my leg burner
By love the leg burner (WI) on Jan 7, 2011
This machine is great had it for over a year. I have a small home it fits nicely, so conveinient to do a workout and fold out of the way. The only complaint is, I am short so the fan blows above my head. No problems. Experienced weight loss and a feel of getting healthy!
Best Investment Ever
By Master Sergeant D. (Horsham, PA) on Mar 4, 2012
My wife and I workout on this wonderful machine daily! It has great weight loss programs and lets you change up your routines. I was injuried during the Iraq war and gained significant weight while I recovered. I was able to get back on it in late Dec 2011. It is now March 4th, 2012 and I have lost ... (Read more)
After a bumpy start, so far so good
By Prof K (Lanoka Harbor, NJ) on Apr 9, 2009
After around six or seven uses, the flywheel came loose and the unit was unusable. I called for warranty service and was told that there would be a $45 service charge. I told them that the unit was within the covered trial period and that I was going to return it. They agreed to have a service pe... (Read more)
Overall a very good elliptical!
By MikeAlpha (Albuquerque) on Apr 11, 2009
This is a very good Cardio work out device. You can get to the desired calorie burn without delay.I have two less than satisfactory comments. First, the original "990" delivery was damaged beyond repair due to poor packing. Second, problem pertains to quality control or manufacturing issues. I had t... (Read more)
By WickedWillow77 (East Alton,IL) on May 3, 2009
I was very excited to receive my Elliptical but also very nervous after reading all the reviews of cracked and damaged parts. It arrived in perfect condition thankfully and only had minor difficulty assembling it. Mostly just tight fitting screws, but with a little elbow grease it took just about 2 ... (Read more)
