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!

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.
I love it!!!!

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)
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)
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)
Good product, poor packing, shipping damage
By JD (TEXAS) on Apr 11, 2009
Sturdy machine, assembly was mod difficult d/t tight fitting screws etc. My control panel was severely damaged in transit, Nordic sent a replacement panel fast but no instructions on how to replace it. I fingered it out though. Other damage ( mostly cosmetic) cracked plastic they ignored my email me... (Read more)
Nice Unit but have problems with left arm control
By Brandi in IL (Belleville, IL) on Apr 12, 2009
Very pleased with elliptical but do have one major complaint about the arm control system. The right side seems to be emitting a white powder and the left side has play and causes jumpy movement until I push it back in. We recommended the 990 to my brother-in-law and they have the same white dust ... (Read more)
I really like it!!
By Leasy (San Diego, CA) on Apr 14, 2009
This elliptical has great stride and workout options! Very stable and comfortable workout. There are only a couple minor things that I don't like. 1)it doesn't show calories burned for all workout outs 2) the cord for your ipod hookup needs something to cover it because it makes a loud static noise ...

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)
By Ted (Birmingham, AL) on Apr 17, 2009
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.
Excellent for our purposes. Great for the money!
By Mom (Indianapolis, IN) on Apr 25, 2009
This is great for the price. It meets our needs (two old people who need some exercise--not daily marathon training)No complaints. Just wish the pulse monitors were on the movable handles rather than the stationary ones. Some noise with flywheel revolution, but after a while, we quit noticing.
would buy again
By statwizardress (cinci oh) on Apr 30, 2009
love the unit. love the ability to use my MP3 player. love the pre-programmed courses. not as impressed with the IFIT options. tried 2 cards a few times, went back to the unit's options.assembly took a while but was straight forward. was not thrilled with the mat arriving after the unit was ass...
