Comments: I recently purchased the X9i and have been working out on it for the last two weeks. I did have the X5i and this is night and day. I was going to buy the X7i, but glad the X9i was available at a the price of the X5i. I had a lot of problems with my workouts no loading up and not completing on my profile. The machine is in the same place and distance as the other, so I believe it may be the Wireless Module (black box). This machine, every time I finish, it shows in my profile that the workout has been completed and the next one is ready to go. I love this machine. I haven't missed with the browser yet or the manual workouts. This machine is quieter and a lot sturdier. I even love the fact that you can put the heart monitor while working out. X9i seems to incline a lot higher (40%). I haven't tried the decline (6%) yet. I'm so glad they brought a new model. There are so many good things about this machine, and it is worth the price (even though I bought mine at 1,999).
