Comments: I experimented with 2 other Elliptical machines in the lower price range before I realized you pay for what you get. I decided to spend a bit more and buy the NordicTrack Commercial XM because the other non Nordic Ellipticals squeeked while I worked out which drove me crazy. This machine is nice, quiet, smooth but can kick your butt if you choose a hard work out. Very satisfied with the machine. Would change 1 thing. 1st fan is way underpowered and doesn't add much value. Had this machine for 2.5 years and love it! Use it 5x per week 1 hour per time.
