  • Best for the price

    Jan 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid construction, Easy operation, Long comfortable stride, Programmable ramp and resistance, quiet smooth operation
    Cons: Heart rate monitor erratic

    Summary: I am reviewing the CX990 (upgraded model). I bought mine from Sears on sale, and bought the extended warranty (4 years in home coverage). It took my wife and I about 3 hours to assemble the unit (it does take two people). The main base portion was a ... read more

  • Reliable workout but loud clunking noise from right pedal!

    Jan 7, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: easy operation, easy on joints
    Cons: clunking noise

    Summary: In April 2005, I bought a Nordictrack 990 from the Nordictrack store in a mall. It cost $799 plus shipping. I did not take the additional $50 for installation. I wish I had-- it took my husband and I almost two hours to install it! It definitely requires ... read more

  • The machine is nice, the service is awful

    Feb 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid design (apart from wheels)
    Cons: Cheesy plastic hubs in the pedal wheels.

    Summary: We bought the CXT 990 about 6 weeks ago, and have been quite satisfied with it up until day before yesterday. The machine developed a loud squeak from the left pedal, and examination revealed that the plastic hub of the wheel that rides on the ramp was ... read more

    Pros: Worked ok for about two months.
    Cons: Difficult to assemble, unsteady, so many problems it stopped working after 4 MONTHS.

    Summary: I needed a cardio machine that I could use at home, since I don't have time in my day to visit a gym. I looked online to try to find the best elliptical (I get bad shin splints, and have since given up running) since I have enjoyed using them at the gym ... read more

  • Pefect cardio workout for our family

    Jul 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good looking, easy to program, easy to use. You get a good cardio workout
    Cons: It's VERY HEAVY. Have three men to move it into your house.

    Summary: My wife and I are in our early 40's and we wanted to get a piece of equipment that would give us a decent cardio workout. We looked at treadmills, weren't impressed, and felt that they were boring. I didn't see the draw to having a treadmill. A friend ... read more

  • Elliptical 990

    Mar 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    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.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Great Machine - Terrible Company

    Mar 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth Operation, Multiple exercise programs, many options to vary workout routine with iFit.
    Cons: Terrible customer service, quality rather suspect

    Summary: Having owned one of their older models (from 2000) which had no problems I decided to upgrade. BIG Mistake! Don't get me wrong this is a great machine...when it works. They dropped it off on A Thursday...and within 1 hour it quit working. So I ... read more

  • Good quality for the price

    Jan 7, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid construction, lots of options, very smooth operation. Quiet.
    Cons: No real upper body workout, big.

    Summary: I've had the machine for a week now, got it from Sears on sale. From the other reviews I was a bit worried about quality, but everything was in the box and working fine. Assembly is not trivial, takes a bit of creativity in places and a lot of time. ... read more

    May 2, 2003 by

    Pros: Name brand. Features. Full body workout. Smoothness. Quiet.
    Cons: Price.

    Summary: I had a NordicTrack treadmill which I reviewed and loved. Had for a few years but when I got on this elliptical trainer, I sold the treadmill and purchased the CXT-990. I consider it the best of both worlds when it comes to cardio workouts. ... read more

    Pros: Price
    Cons: Broken in just a month - design flaw that Nordic Track will not warranty

    Summary: Similar to other machines in the CXT series, this elliptical is a disappointment. There is a design problem with the machine. Nordic Track (Icon Health and Fitness) has sent two techs to my house and they have not yet fixed the problem. After taking ... read more

    Pros: Best of the less expensive home elliptical trainers
    Cons: Not anything like the elliptical trainers you will find at the Gyms

    Summary: I have owned my NordicTrack CXT 990 for about 6 months now. I paid $799 at the NordicTrack store, they had this machine on sale for about 2 weeks. I purchased the upgraded warranty for a total of 5 years and a total price of $975 (Check the store before ... read more

    Pros: Initial use seemed smooth but nothing stands out.
    Cons: Absolutely ridiculous cost of replacement parts and this unit needs them!

    Summary: When considering workout machines (mine is a cx990) one must consider the cost of replacement parts, minor replacement parts, as in my case for two simple bushings (part#51) for $90.00. They wear-out sooner than one thinks and these are exceedingly ... read more

    Pros:

    None, this is a real piece of junk.


    Cons: BEWARE, these people are thieves!

    Summary: At first I like the feel of the machine. It felt like it was well built and solid. It worked that way for a few weeks but then started getting noisier and noisier. After a few months the right wheel became wobbly and I discovered the hub of the wheel had ... read more

    Pros: preprogramed workouts
    Cons: durability is questionable

    Summary: I bought the version that was a step down from the very best model. At first, I loved it. Has 20 preprogramed workouts. you can adjust resistance and ramp to change a work out even more. But after a few months, and no I wasn't regualar on it every ... read more

    Pros: There are none.
    Cons: Everything about this company appears to be a con.

    Summary: Don't buy this machine. In fact, don't buy from Nordic Track at all!! I received a CXT 990 as an "upgrade" from Nordic Track after my 910 broke after 3 months of use (just read the reviews, apparently this is NORMAL!). Last night, I heard the worst ... read more

    Pros: None, unless you give them credit for taking our money and running.
    Cons: It doesn't work, they can't repair it, and their customer service is incompetent.

    Summary: We've owned the machine for 6 months and it didn't work from the beginning, even after paying the Nordic Track store $50 to assemble it! After repeated efforts to have the machine repaired -- all in good faith on our part -- it still doesn't work. The ... read more

    Pros: Easy, fun, iFit programable/computer hook-up, adjustable ramp and tension
    Cons: heart rate not really accurate

    Summary: I've had this eliptical for two months and absolutely LOVE IT. I found it increasingly difficult to get to the gym, and I wanted a good quality home cardio machine. I chose an eliptical because its no-impact, unlike a treadmil, and not as big. Plus it ... read more

    Pros: Lots of information on console, fan keeps you cool, 6 programs , very sturdy machine.
    Cons: Would be hard to move around. Must be near an electrical outlet for power.

    Summary: I purchased my Nordic Track Elliptical at Sear's. I use the Nordic Track skier and wanted to add something new to my fitness routine. I knew that Sears did a price match and had a great delivery and set up price so I really wanted to get my NTE there. ... read more

    Pros: Great feel, great ride, good delivery from NordicTrack.
    Cons: Non-locking electrical connections.

    Summary: I spent a lot of time researching the ellipticals including using this site, tried out a few of them and found the CXT990 to be the one. Our local Sears had them but due to a few "issues" I've had with Sears I decided to order online from Nordic Track ... read more

    Pros: Good work out programs. Smooth transitions between inclines and resistance.
    Cons: Some of the parts are not smooth or rounded to fit properly.

    Summary: 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 ... read more
