    Pros: quiet
    Cons: lights turn on but machine doesn't start or work

    Summary: I purchased the Audiostrider 800 back in  July.  It is now September and it doesn't work.  I started out using batteries.  BIG waste of time because the batteries only last a few days.  After having the batteries replaced a few ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, folds up to save space.
    Cons: Very poor construction, not very reliable, terrible customer service.

    Summary: After reading some over all good reviews and doing some price comparisons I purchased this unit because it had the features I was looking for and it does have a nice space saving feature by folding up a little.  From the first day using it, I ... read more

    Pros: Music system, fan feature, heart rate monitor, burns a lot of calories.
    Cons: Broke within a month, customer service, no power pack, very heavy package.

    Summary: We purchased the AudioStrider on Black Friday of 2008 at our local Sears.  The price was right and in an effort to get back in shape before Spring we figured we'd get it set up Thanksgiving weekend and start working out 4 days a week.Our ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, MP3 compatible, console controlled, appears sturdy, folding feature space saver
    Cons: No AC power adapter plug pin, battery power not acceptable power source for its price

    Summary: PROS We just bought the Strider last Dec. 2, 2008. The Nordic Track AudioStrider 800 was attractive in looks particularly the console where it displays the section of the body that would benefit most depending on the setup angle and resistance ... read more

    Pros:  = to about $ 20 per hour of use at this point.
    Cons: Needs power cord included, better fan, speakers, and construction

    Summary: After buying this Elliptical I set it up. Wasn't too bad, I have lots of tool I had access to. This thing eats batteries, esp. if you use the built in fan. I agree this high price power cord I picked up at Sears for 20 some bucks. I got the little paper ... read more

    Pros: Smooth ride, nice read out display, iFit function, fold up fly wheel
    Cons: Keeps breaking, fly wheel rubs on casing, a power cord would be nice

    Summary: I will agree that the price on this machine is decent and the elliptical path is very smooth (after some shimming and tweaking of the fly wheel casing). But, we have had to replace the foot bars twice since buying this one year ago. As another reviewer ... read more

  • Very Poorly Designed

    Pros: Has an excellent feel in the stride which makes the workout actually enjoyable.
    Cons: Machine will break down after just a few weeks of routine use. Extremely frustrating!

    Summary: I bought the AudioStrider 800 in late December 2006 and just after two weeks on this thing (5-day 45 minute workouts) the metal on the leg apparatus ripped apart breaking the wheel axis. I thought it was just my luck to have a defective part. I called ... read more

  • Okay machine...Horrible customer service

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice console, music port, space saver design
    Cons: Customer service, knocking sound, loud beeps, customer service no AC adapter, and customer service

    Summary: We purchased our Audiostrider 800 from Sears on sale for $799.99. The machine is fairly easy to put togther, but some screws did not fit snuggly in their screw holes. The last part of the installation is the most difficult and requires a lot of ... read more

    Pros: None (I can't get it to work)
    Cons: 6 weeks and still doesn't work. Support is terrible.

    Summary: I bought it because it seemed to be the best machine available in it's price range. Friends have a similar nodel and love it, but their model is no longer available. I had to settle for a new model, made in China. I couldn’t find a store locally where ... read more

    Pros: Very Smooth Operation Workout Programs Sturdy Construction, Heavy Duty
    Cons: 4 "D" Batteries Lack of power pack, to plug into wall "Creeking" Noises

    Summary: The first Audiostrider 800 we bought was the floor model at Sears. The program and display panel went out. So spent the extra money and bought one in the box. Beware, it’s very heavy. You will need help getting into and out of a pick-up truck and ... read more

    Pros: 3-level incline, interactive work-outs, nice foot pads, comfortable stride
    Cons: No AC adaptor included. Very difficult to reach service at 800# provided.

    Summary: Purchased my machine Jan 7th, thinking it would be good quality at an affordable price....WRONG!! The salesperson didn't mention that it doesn't come with AC adaptor. I was shocked that an $800 piece of equipment would be battery powered!! And they ... read more

    Pros: smooth easy2use
    Cons: heart rate mon.

    Summary: This is my first elliptical but I have tested many before buying this one. Compared with other machine's in this price range this machine has the smoothest motion. There are no clunky transitions and your feet do not 'hop' as you exercise. I have not ... read more

    Pros: Features for the price. 300lb weight rating. Nice smooth elliptical path
    Cons: marginal quality, no batteries or a/c adapter included

    Summary: Wanted an elliptical for the house. I am very familiar with ellipticals and routinely use Precor equipment. I knew I couldn't get a comparable machine on my budget. My big issues were size. I weigh about 250 and I wanted an elliptical that I felt ... read more

    Pros: quiet, smooth stride, foldable
    Cons: needs adapter

    Summary: I've had this unit for about 3 years. Only complaint: you need the adapter. If you put this together the right way you won't have "clunking". Nothing has broken for me, the thing is smooth and has a very comfortable stride. That's all I need. I use it, ... read more

    Pros: nice looking design, that's it.
    Cons: poorly constructed with cheap metal, noisy and completely undependable.

    Summary: This thing has broken so many times now. I had to have the whole control unit replaced, the bars that connect the arm to the feet replaced 3 times, got sick of that and had them welded when they broke for the 4th time. Now the bar that runs the length ... read more

    Summary: Purchased this unit approx. 2 years ago from Sears.  I am on my second computer console. The unit will shut off during the ifit program and you must start over. This is now a continual problem. The first one failed during warranty and they shipped ... read more

    Pros: Good workout - when it is functional.
    Cons: Poor quality machine. Poor service.

    Summary: Our Nordictrack elliptical machine has been out of service for a total of 3 months in the 2 years we have had it. The customer service is terrible and the warranty (third-party) is useless. The last time a repairman came to the house, he decided that ... read more

    Pros: None. It has never worked.
    Cons: Customer Care should be called "Customer Don't Care!"

    Summary: Well, I wish I could review my NordicTrack elliptical that I purchased 2.5 months ago, but I cannot. The machine did not work from Day 1 - the mechanism that changes the resistance did not work. I've called "Customer Care" every other day. I've had ... read more
