Pros: Good work out programs. Smooth transitions between inclines and resistance.
Cons: Some of the parts are not smooth or rounded to fit properly.
We bought the Nordic Track CXT 990 on sale at Sears. The set up took two people about 2.5 hours. Some of the parts are not smoothly rounded to fit easy. Took some extra forethought in putting different parts together, and where to stuff the wiring without piercing it. I am glad I had some other opinions on putting this machine together. They really helped. My opinion is that it is a good machine for the price. The levels of difficulty are a plus. A person does get a good lower body work out, but not so much an upper body work out. Smooth motion - the fan is a plus! and easy transition between levels of difficulty and incline. We had looked at different ellipticals, and for the price and features - especially the motorized incline - this is a good machine for the price.
