good machine the only problem I have had is the resistance does not change, so it is constantly on low. It may be something I did wrong when I put it together I just have not figured it out yet. Other than that good quality and easy to use.
Good Machine But It Has Issues
By JerseyGuy (New Jersey) on Apr 9, 2009
I want to like the machine more then I do. I really do. But I have had probelms and it's taking 4 months to correct them. First off, I paid for assembly and they damaged my ceiling and new that the machine wasn't right. The speakers made A LOT of noise when there wasn't anythig plugged into it (i... (Read more)
completely does the job

It is durable. I have been using it for few months and nothing has broken. Its little noisy but not bad.Definitley get it installed by their representative, its worth it. Its not easy to assemble. I wonder people who have had parts gone bad immediately is because of slightly wrong self-assembly.

Once I got it set up, it is quiet and gives a great work out!

I am really enjoying the Elliptical. Since December, I've been using it at least 3 times a week and have been losing weight and getting healthier! I would recommend this Elliptical. It was very easy to put together as well.
Good machine, few flaws
By Danny (Granville, Ohio) on Apr 9, 2009
Overall this is an OK machine for the money. My wife & didn't like the foot pads because they really bothered our feet, so I removed them which has made it easier to use, however there are a lot of squeaks whcih I could not get rid of with grease or tightening screws. Machine came out of box damag... (Read more)
Great machine, but sort of poorly made
By Ellie (Horicon, WI) on Apr 9, 2009
I really like my elliptical machine, but I was a little disapointed in the quality of it. Luckily, I am a small person, so I'm not concerned about putting too much wear and tear on it. But, when it arrived there were a few cracked parts, nothing that I felt an urgent need to call customer service ... (Read more)
First time Elliptical user
By Exercising Mama (Pittsburgh, PA) on Apr 9, 2009
I never owned an elliptical but heard so many good things about them. I did my research thoroughly and found the 990 was the best bang for my buck within my price range. Sure it has a few squeaks but foot placement on the pedals can cure that. I enjoy using the iFit cards which provide a different, ... (Read more)

Bought this product about 4 months ago and use it religiously. It offers such versatility from the power incline to the resistance, you just cant ask for better with the price. Its a great bargain and a fantastic machine. Very pleased with this product!!!
Almost love it
By mostlyhappy (Hagerstown, MD) on Apr 9, 2009
My husband put ours together and had to tighten and oil some parts to get it to work right. There is some kind of defect with the belt, because it is constantly coming off the machine. It is a pain in the but to take off the cover and screws, so now we just leave ours off. Other than that, it works ... (Read more)

Easier to assemble than I feared. Generally quiet, though there are some unexplained thumps. Must tighten screws every couple of weeks to prevent falling out. My wife uses it much more than I would have imagined and I use it as well. A bargain Christmas gift that benefits us both. Well worth th... (Read more)

Had no problems in a year of service, and I am pushing the #330 weight limit to the edge. Buy a bottle of Loctite for assembly.Love the 30 min programs and auto shut down feature.
Broken but useable.
By Johnboy (Evans, GA.) on Apr 9, 2009
Unfortunately I received my Audiostrider broken. It was obvious that it had been disassembled for shipping. I had to obtain additonal bolts to replace bolts that had been removed from the bubble pack. The plastic housing of the display had broken off in shipment but some super glue repaired it suffi...

If I Had It To Do All Over Again
By Lean & Mean Again (Fresno CA) on Apr 10, 2009
I bought my Audiostrider 990 in December '08. This is the best piece of equipment I have in my home gym. If I had it to do all over again, my home gym would only have one piece of equipment in it. It would not have the treadmill or the weight machine. The only piece of equipment would be be my Audio... (Read more)

I love this machine.......Gym quality with all the gadgets.Fan, Music, ifit and power incline. Don't forget about the space saver as well. Had mine for over a year now still use it regularly.
good product, fair customer service
By mike (augusta, ga) on Apr 10, 2009
The Audiostrider 990 is a good eliptical with many wonderful features although it makes progressively louder noise with time. Customer service, especially in terms of obtaining initial warranty info was fair at best.
By JeeperSr (San Diego) on Apr 10, 2009
My wife has a high-end athletic-club quality machine that I liked, but since I was buying a machine for ME, I wanted to save a little money...now she's envious of my machine! I particularly like the incline adjustment, which adds a whole new dimension when modifying resistance. Worth the price.
Good value for Money
By 1T (Lawrence,KS) on Apr 10, 2009
Pros-Delivery on time & nothing got damaged.-Easy to install. Although you may want to have another person to help you once all individual parts are ready to be ensembled. I am not good at all when it comes to esembling things but, fortunately I did not have any problem. -Relatively silent (9/10)-Co... (Read more)

Had some initial service problems which were quickly and completly rectified with no questions asked
By bookkooker (Kalispell, MT) on Apr 11, 2009
My eliptical was fairly easy to assemble and set up properly, so that was a blessing! The work-out is just as I'd hope it would be, and this machine is great as far as being able to increase heartbeat and keep your legs in shape. However, the heart monitor has never worked, and the mileage as well a... (Read more)
