Comments: Purchased the 990 on 1/19/2011 and received it on 1/25/2011. Purchase was made through the " online chat" feature using Bill Me Later 6 months same as cash. I did not have to list a credit card or anything, the process was very convenient and accurate. The purchasing experience with NordicTrack was A+! The box was very large and weighed 230lbs, but it did fit in the back of my Explorer with the seats down, think the size of a large screen rear projection TV and you get the idea. The shipping was free, but I did have to pick it up at a local trucking firm. Assembly was very easy, there were a couple of steps that suggest to use 2 people, although I am a small man I had no issues doing it by myself. The only step I needed help with I had my daughter hold the control panel while I plugged in the 4 plugs. All the components were very well made. I expected no less, we have had a NordicTrack C2050 treadmill for years with no issues and it is still used heavily in the winter months. My wife ( whom the 990 was purchased for ) was used to working out on an Octane Fitness elliptical and it blew me away when she said she likes the 990 just as well. The only thing negative I can say about my 2nd NordicTrack purchase is the registration part. I looked for 45 minutes for the sticker with the serial # that was supposed to have been in 1 of 3 locations on the elliptical. There was no sticker on the unit, there was a sticker on the box it came in that had both the Model and Serial #. Trivial I know, but I was getting frustrated looking for it. The online registration was very easy. If the elliptical lasts as long as the treadmill has, I will not hesitate in buying from NordicTrack again in the future.
