This elliptical isn't as expensive as some of the others, and it's okay. The pedals are big and comfortable when you work out on it. The screen is bright and easy to read. But it didn't come with a heart rate band so I can't keep good track of my pulse without taking it myself all the time when I'm working out. Oh, the built in speakers aren't very good either. The sound is okay, but its really quiet. Not a bad piece of gear at all but not great either.
