Comments: I received my NordicTrack Audiostrider 990 Pro five days ago & have used it everyday since. I have to say that I like it better than some of the ellipticals I have used at the gym. The angle of the pedals just seem more comfortable & as do the resistance on the handles. It has been awhile since I have exercised and longer still since I've used an elliptical, however I was able to go a straight 30 minutes without stopping on my first workout and felt like I got a really good workout. I have primarily used the elliptical in manual mode. Both the resistance and the ramp position are easy to change with the quickset buttons on the bottom of the console. I have ordered the iFit live module and am looking forward to downloading specific workouts for my fitness level. I also really like the adjustable tension bookholder. It securely holds my iPad so that I am able to use it while I am working out, which really makes the time go by quickly. I would have given the machine a 5 rating but I am having one slight problem with a knocking sound on each revolution of the pedal. I had ordered white glove service and I am a little dismayed that the installers didn't notice and fix the sound before they left. Additionally, I couldn't put in a service call until today because I couldn't register the product without a serial number. The serial number tag is underneath the elliptical and without having someone else with me to help tip the machine over, I couldn't get to it. Once I registered the product I took advantage of the service "chat" function on the service website. The representative immediately set up a service call for a technician to come out in the next few days to diagnose the problem and fix it. I would highly recommend this machine if you are looking for a moderately priced piece of exercise equipment that does not compromise feature/functionality.
