  • Catastrophic failure almost caused injury.

    Mar 21, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent motion, electric ramp adjustment allows for operation while in motion, and multiple resistance settings.
    Cons: May fall apart while you're using it. Poor quality manufacturing, badly broken service organization.

    Summary: I got my Nordictrack 980 about a year and a half ago. I particularly liked the ease of motion on it, there is no significant jerkiness to the exercise like I had noted on some other models. It has a number of very nice features. The most important ... read more

    Pros: Great Features
    Cons: Needed repair when shipped

    Pros: It works, for a while.
    Cons: Poor quality and durability.

    Summary: I bought the CXT980 from Sears back in 2003. To be honest, I didn't do much research on the product, as I assumed the brand and price tag to mean something in terms of quality and durability. Unfortunately, this was an $800 mistake I learned the hard ... read more

    Pros: Quiet Well Constructed Intuitive controls Almost instant Spindown Comfortable Fantastic power incline DirectAC plug
    Cons: Would prefer ear clip heart rate sensor to optional chest unit
