Comments: I needed a workout machine in my home with a few requirements. I wanted an elliptical because I am middle aged and needed non-impact machine, space was an issue, there was going to be more than one user of the machine and I didn't want to pay for a top of the line machine. After trying out a few machines and doing some research, I choose the ACT. I have been delighted with my choice. The machine feels stable and sturdy, (no wobbly flywheel in the back), is quiet and easy to use. You can easily change the workouts to meet your needs and the thing really does not take up alot of room. I have a sound system in the room where the machine is so I don't use the IPod connection. The bars for your arms don't really do much, but that is typical of these kinds of machines.Regarding service: The people at Nordic Track were very nice, but somewhat disorganized. It took many calls to get everything straightened out regarding my order, but everyone was very nice about it. I purchased an extendeded warranty and have never received any paperwork so whoever is reading this at NT, I would appreciate being contacted. I also was supposed to get a mat with my purchase which never arrived. However, these are small things compared with the excellence of the machine. I would definitely recommend it.
