I was able to purchase this with my medical flex spending and what a wonderful investment in family's and my health.
It is heavy and one should expect that it is difficult to move around, but not impossible.
Fairly easy to assemble and works great. Many features for mid model and runs smooth.
Power incline and resistance are really nice. Everything I was expecting and more.
I ordered the 720 E eliptical and am very pleased with it.
It did require assembly but only took about 1 hour and the instructions were easy to follow.
The only complaint is that the heart rate feature is weak. The heart rate read out is irratic and fluctuates by as much as 50 beats/minute.
