I wish I had the power ramp
By Mary (Newark, MD) on Jan 29, 2009
As far as I can tell the only difference between this and the 990 is that this one doesn't have the push button power ramp. It's pretty easy for me to adjust the ramp but I have to climb off the elliptical to do it. Of course it was $200.00 cheaper as well. The motion is super smooth and if there is... (Read more)

Easy to assemble & good solid construction. It took me three hours (alone) with only a little help to mount the main console and connect the wire harness. But I am a grad mech engineer. It could have been better if:1) The page with the parts shrunk wrapped on it had the same reference number as the ... (Read more)

I've never owned an elliptical machine before. I went to Sears and tried them all out. Out of all the other ellipticals, this was the smoothest stride. This one is a great value if you don't want to spend the extra cash for the powered ramp.
I am very pleased with this machine

Our Audiostrider 800 arrived within 7 days. My son is a electrical and computer engineer and had the machine together in 1 hour and 20 minutes. The only complaint I heard him say was the allen wrench was not long enough and a few screws did not want to fit very well. The machine is very quite an... (Read more)
Perfect piece of equipment!
By Nettie (Los Angeles, CA) on Apr 9, 2009
I love my NordicTrack elliptical. It is just what I needed. I use it at least three times a week and I have seen dramatic results from using it. I have ordered and used 3 different iFit cards. I love working out with the instructor. She is my motivation.

Everything i wanted in my Elliptical
By Cossmo (Dallas, TX) on Apr 6, 2009
i totally Love this machine! so worth it!!!!! i am very satisfied with the product!
By Kimby (Julesburg, CO) on Apr 9, 2009
I am personally struggling with working out on this machine. Because of the cost, I feel I have to make it work but my legs easily become cramped, as I need to change my stride and really can t. In addition, the batteries to run the main component is not enough, it really needs to come with a powe... (Read more)
She said I had a nice butt.
By DB (Tampa, FL.) on Apr 9, 2009
I bought the Elliptical trainer for the cardiovascular benefits. However, 2 weeks ago my younger girlfriend walked by patted me on the butt and said "nice definition". At 62 years of age you don'r get these compliments very often. I LOVE the Audiostrider 800 Ellipitcal.
By Marty (Boston, MA) on Apr 9, 2009
Did a lot of research, paid off with this machine. Easy to assemble, very stable and well made. Has a few "plastic" squeaks. Gets used daily with no problems.Would recommend to anybody that wants a relatively cheap exercise machine.
perfect for home user
By daveb471 (Lynn, MA) on Apr 9, 2009
The machine out of the box is excellent for the home work out room ,or family room where mine is. The number of pre-programed routines will keep all us folks that just want to keep toned and lose weight. i bought this because I was diagnosed with age related spinal arthritis. I was using a treadmill... (Read more)

Pain Relief and Interactive
By Sailesh (CENTREVILLE, VA) on Apr 21, 2009
This elliptical is great and very stable. It helped me almost get rid of a knee pain I was experiencing. I use it 4 times a week and do about 200 minutes total. What's more the talking exercise program on the SD card is as if it were made for chaps like me who are blind. I have had it for 4 months n... (Read more)

for my money this is the best exercise machine i have ever bought!I had been using a similar treadmill type of machine for about 3 years but i could tell after my first workout on the autostrider 800 that it was making me use muscles that the other machine was not.i just love this machine and use it...

Where's the Power Supply???
By RunningOnD-Cells (Mesquite, TX) on Apr 29, 2009
I was very impressed with how easy it was to assemble the product and the space-saving design, however disappointed when I learned that the Power Supply was not included and had to be ordered by PHONE!! C'mon ... let's get real and make life easier on the consumer. Make this part orderable at the ... (Read more)
You Can Purchase A Power Cord
By Priscilla (California) on Apr 30, 2009
I Love this machine. I also was going through the batteries but you can purchase a power cord from NordicTrack. No more batteries good for the enviorment and you!!!
By readytowork (wichita, ks) on Jul 13, 2009
I like the machine. Not having a power pack is terrible, especially for the price. The traction pads keep sliding up and make my sneakers sticky. Has anyone else had this problem.
By Tap (Oklahoma) on Nov 27, 2009
I really love this machine and would recommend it to my friends and family.
Just what the Dr. ordered
By Herrings in WY (Laramie, WY) on Dec 3, 2009
I really wanted an elliptical because they are so much easier on your body then a treadmill. I have no time to go to a gym, so this works out great.
It comes in a huge box that my husband and I couldn't carry upstairs. We had to take every thing out piece by piece and take it inside. Getting eve... (Read more)
Problem free 3 years heavy use
By itchka (Brooklyn, NY) on Feb 3, 2011
I weighed 240 and worked out for over 3 years almost daily 30-60+ minutes and am fully satisfied. Considering the reasonable price, this was a great purchase for me.
I did not use maximum incline or test the ablsoute limits, but I used a 15% incline and levels 6-10 (of 15) without problems. I som... (Read more)
