Comments: Only had the elliptical for a few weeks. So far, so good. I LOVE the pre-programmed workouts. The customer service rep who helped me with the purchase was also great! I am a former competitive athlete who now at 51 has joint issues that prevent high impact training. The 990 has gotten me back on the fitness path and it feels GREAT! We shopped everything in the price range and this machine wins hands down. The angled "paddles" on the handles are the most comfortable and far superior to others in this or even higher price range. The only hiccup was the shipping company.(Estes) Apparently, I needed a writ from congress and a waiver signed by St. Peter to get them to help me move the box 30ft into the house. That would have been nice to know beforehand. They were also supposed to call pre-delivery so I could meet them. Nope, they couldn't do that either. They called from the driveway where they promptly left the 280lbs+ crate in the dirt. They couldn't wait the 12.4 minutes it took for me to dash home from work to get it on the waiting dolly. So, I arrived moments after their hasty getaway and got my 18yr old daughter to help me move it in to dodge the rain. Yes, the rain was why I specifically asked (and they agreed) for them to call me BEFORE the truck got there. The shipping company was perfectly content to just leave the unit in the rain and the mud. NordicTrack should more carefully select their LTL shippers. Bottom line...great unit so far. Love it. However, if you buy this unit from NordicTrack ask very specific questions about the delivery protocol and make sure that NordicTrack and the delivery company give the same answers.
