Good Machine for the Price

Pros: sturdy machine
Cons: squeaking sound, too high for short people
Model Number: FS5.25e / 593025
" I received this machine about 2 weeks ago. It was assembled for me which is good because I have trouble assembling equipment. I have been using it 6 days a week. So far it runs well except for a squeaking noise, which goes on constantly. his can be a little bothersome. Otherwise, I believe it is a sturdy looking machine.
I have a bad knee and I hope this machine will help me get some exercise.

works great

" received this fast and it was set up in about an hour and a half. i like it a lot...much better than a rear wheel elliptical. it does make a noise from the wheels while using but other than that, the workout from it is fantastic. i had major back surgery and i am using this as therapy (recommended by my doctor).

Good deal

Pros: ease of use, quite, built-in fan
Cons: no on/off switch, handlebar placement, inadequate traction on steps
" I received this product about a week and a half after I ordered it, which was much sooner than expected. I'm grateful for the free set up, because there is no way I would've been able to assemble it myself! Overall, I'm really happy with it, but I do wish the handles were further back (because as they are now, you have to hunch over a bit). Also, my feet slide forward on the pads, so it would be nice if there was more traction on the steps themselves. Other than that, it looks and works great! "

Pros: easy fast and convienient!, can jump on it when i want.
Model Number: Exterra FS5.25e
" I had a baby and wasn't able to get to the gym due to a demanding baby that nursed every hr and a half. This Elliptical was my saving grace. I use to go to the gym 5-6 times a wk. Now that I wasn't able to I was sad. This was easy to jump on when the baby was asleep. Fast and easy! This machine is very quiet. They set it up pretty fast and they were on time. Even though i adjust the levels it was not a big deal at all. It's very smooth and easy. The workouts are good enough and get the job done!
I'm very happy that we chose this purchase.

Great Purchase

Pros: easy to understand supplied owners manual easy to, follow console
Cons: no on-off switch
Model Number: 1520111109000765
" Delivered on time as advertised. Assembled competently and efficiently. Very solid construction. Equipment had a small flaw. Called company, technician arrived at the beginning of the two hour service window, identified the problem and fixed in to my complete satisfaction. Great piece of equipment to get your cardiovascular system up and running in a hurry. The preset programs or the manual operated settings give you a great choice to tailor your workout. I'm glad and very satisfied with my choice. "

Would Choose Carefully

Pros: delivery/setup
Cons: electronics, steadiness
" I replaced a Nordic Track Commercial with this model (on sale) back in Fall 2011. Initially had a lot of pressure on front of foot and see from owner's manual that they have tilted foot pad. Eventually went away.
The unit is smaller front to back although you will stand a bit higher. We get a slight rocking and hence clicking noise because the side supports aren't wide enough.
The display and electronics are pretty lame, especially considering this day and age. Incline is manual (which I knew). It has dual "wheels" on each side which I hope will be more durable than NT Comm. Setup was included in price which was great. "

Great elliptical, but

Pros: quiet and smooth, customizable workouts, easy readouts
Cons: heart rate monitor is not dependable
Model Number: XTERRA® FS5.25e Elliptical
" This is a great elliptical trainer. It is both smooth and quiet and offers many preprogrammed or customized workouts to get your daily workouts. THe unit was delivered on time and set -up within days. My only problem, and it continues today after two visits from the repairman, is the heart rate readout. Sometimes it works, sometimes it reads wrong and sometimes it doesn't display at all. This is frustrating since one of the primary reasons for buying this unit was the heart rate display monitor. "
