Pros: Great low-impact cardio workout w/ good programs. Also is easy to use.
Cons: Manufacturing flaws such as loud crank, and parts that don't fit too well.
For the price, the machine is worth it. I looked into several different models and this one gave me the programs that I wanted for the price I needed. It isn't something you'd find in a gym, but it gives you a great workout still. I found mine for about $700. I think there are some manufacturing flaws that can become a hassle. The turn is loud and rubs on the computer box. The buttons to start a program aren't exactly "touch-sensitive". Setting up the maching wasn't an easy feat. Some of the parts are cheap (like aluminum washers) and the metallic coating flakes off the machine at the slightest touch. It's very prone to bumps and scrathes.
