I've been looking for a good elliptical at a reasonable price for some time, when I came across this model. Very glad I did not hesitate in purchasing. Delivery was very quick, and I upgraded the delivery to include assembly of the equipment. The assembly guys were very efficient, quick, and once done, the elliptical is beyond sturdy. I weigh over 250 lbs, and even at that weight, the machine is sturdy as can be, no wobbling whatsoever. I did purchase the Ifit Live accessory, which definitely is a great add on, and the sound system is amazing. Love the variety of workouts included on the dashboard. This machine will give you a very intense workout. I can't say enough good things about this. Highly recommend!!

seems to be rock solid and smooth!
This company has designed a eliptical here that is unsurpassed for the money you spend. Easy to put together, I used two 2 x 4 pieces scrap as my extra help! and had it together in two hours. I will tell you unpacking neatly takes an hour extra and use the bottom of the box as a drop cloth! the only thing I did different was use my own grease! the grease packed was not quite right in texture so my choice was SUPER LUBE! clean and lasts a very long time. Follow instructions carefully and you should have no parts left over to install, my machine packaging was pefect.
Enjoy the ride!

I have a bad knee and bad ankle on the other leg. This is the best machine for me. The owners manual has much to be desired. I still can't figure out to turn on the fan. I see the little icon - but the directions don't explain some things about the machine.
It was packed very well and ech part was packed separately. It took us about 3 hrs to assemble it, which I didn't think was bad.

Ok so far
We so far so good. I put it together and it was pretty easy to do. Fit was good and the quality of the hardware seems good. The stride is very smooth so I'm happy with that. This is my first elliptical so for the price it was a good value. Only two negative points. The MP3 player is terrible. Your better off wearing a headset. Heart rate monitor, as most, isn't verey accurate.

broken after 6 months
Well, the jury is out. Let's see how NordicTrack warranty team treats a repeat customer. We have been enjoying this machine for 6 months when the main rotating shaft snapped in half…..clearly defective. This is our second NordicTrack elliptical and the last one lasted eight years. It had a failed bearing, but we still sold it on Craig’s list to engineer who said that he would fix it. We felt comfortable in buying another. We liked the compact design and long stride of this model. It was very quiet. I decided to still give high ratings because we still believe in the product….some failures are to be expected. Hopefully the NordicTrack stands behind their product and fixes it under warranty.

I am so happy I purchased this Elliptical! We went to several stores trying different ones out before we made a decision. I knew right off that this was the one but just had to make certain. I definitely made the right choice! I suffer from crushed ankles from a head on car accident 14 yrs ago. Overtime my knees and back have also developed arthritis. I haven't been able to run in yrs but now with my Nordictrack, I feel like I can fly!! It moves so smoothly. I'm very happy, indeed!!!

Long wait to receive unit
This unit is excellent. It was easy to assembly and it works well. The instructions were well documented and easy to follow. I would highly recommend this purchase. However, it took almost three weeks to get our elliptical machine. If you are in a hurry, go to Sears.

Gives an excellent workout.
We prefer Nordictrack and have enjoyed our treadmill
But wanted a different workout and love our new Elliptical.

So far, so good...
The only problem I've had so far is that the serial number sticker was NOT on the side of the rails, as indicated by the manual, but ON THE BOTTOM of the machine. When I tried to register it, I had to tilt it completely over, stressing one of the arms, which is taking a chance of breaking or misaligning something. It's a small thing, but maybe that could be noted, since the manual clearly states where the sticker should be.

Great product for the price
I looked at several models before choosing this particular model. I have a very limited space for any exercise machine and this one fit my needs for space. My husband was able to assemble it fairly easily in about 3 hours. I like that it is very quiet when in use. This is my second NordicTrack machine (a treadmill) and I really liked it as well--used it every day for years until it died and could not be repaired.

This elliptical is very smooth working. I feel it's a very good quality machine. I don't use the ipod station, so I don't have an opinion on that. Husband got this as a surprise (I've wanted one for years) for my birthday. He made a super choice!

Not a bad device
Metal sensor strips on handles fell off after 1 use. Needed to be re-glued.

You people are a joke
It would be nice if I received it , you guys are a joke and have real nerve to send me this email. It's like pouring salt on the cut . I took off from work to wait for the machine to be delivered and installed. They called me at 3pm to tell me they can't come. I'm still waiting for a explanation and that was a week ago. Ethan was the person who took my order (it may as well have been a 3 year old taking my order because he is clueless,,, you guys already charged my credit card and I don't even have a answer on when I'm getting it. Order number 500122893. Oh and who's this Carley who don't take phone calls , that's what Ethan said , she was suppose to email me and take care of it. I never dealt with such incompetence ,,, get lost

The E5.7 Elliptical arrived in a timely manner. The machine was easy to put together and the quality of the materials was excellent. There were no shortages and the machine works perfectly. This product definitely exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anybody. It is an excellent product for the money.

An excellent thing!
Pretty easy to set up, but u need someone to help to hold details for sure. The machine doesn't make any noises. It works very smooth. And the price is great!

Easy to put together, which is a biggie, and easy to use. Just what I needed/wanted.

Great product. Love it!
I have had this elliptical about 2 months now. It was fairly easy to put together. It does require 2 people for assembly, but the instructions are very clear. It is very quiet and smooth. I love having it at my home and not having to drive to the gym. I would highly recommend it.

It is very disappointing, that one is not warned that you get the product disassembled and that you have to put everything together yourself.
I will never buy a product from you again..
This is not how you treat customers buying a high end product

I love this machine but it doesn't monitor my heart rate maybe there's something that I'm doing wrong but other than that its awesome. Very quiet during workouts just great!!!!

I was a little concerned about this being one of the cheaper priced models, but it is a great elliptical. I find I get an excellent workout, and it has nice features. I am very pleased with my purchase.

suits its purpose
This elliptical suits it purpose, it gives me a way to exersize at home. I don't really like any of the preprogramed workouts, 45 min is the max time I can get on the preprogrammed. And the HR monitor is horrible. It will jump from 150 to 110 to 130 every couple seconds, I have no idea what my HR is when I use it. I end up counting myself.

I am very impressed with this machine. Was never that much into getting fit, but this makes it fun and enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks

I've only had it 4 weeks, but so far it is great! Very sturdy and quiet. Runs smoothly. Took my husband a few hours to put together. Directions were excellent! Gives a great workout! I shopped around for a long time looking for an elliptical. Choose this one because of stride length and adjustable incline. Could not find one of this quality, with these options, for this price anywhere else!

Set up was easy. It took more time to get everything out of the box than putting together. Definitely need 2 people to put together. Would not recommend getting the delivery plus setup. If my husband and I can put this machine together anyone can. It took us about an hour and half. Machine runs smoothly. I love it!

The product had a fairly serious problem with loose screws causing the pulley to wobble and thump and the belt to come off. It has been repaired and seems okay.

solid, quiet and good value
Delivery people were most cooperative. Assembly was easy with good instructions. The unit is very quiet and solid. Gives me excellent workout with build in guides for loosing weight. Excellent value for my money. I should have bought it sooner than spending money on cheaper units. I strongly recommend to first timers.

Just started working out on the new 5.7 Elliptical this week.. so far it is nothing short of great.. so quiet, firm, secure, and the iFit works great. Looking forward to a long relationship with it. The staff at NordicTrack were wonderful to deal with.

Better than I expected
I love my machine! It runs well and doesn't make a lot of noise. It took my husband 1 hour to put it together. I would recommend this elliptical to just about anyone. LOVE IT!!!!

Wow is all I can say!
This is an awesome machine - but it is really going to take me sometime to get to the maximum benefits of the workout.

Great Addition to our Workout Room
WE added the elliptical to our company workout and room and it has been. Very quiet and easy to control. The only issue I have had is understanding the heartrate readout.

Absolutely Love this Machine
Was very easy to assemble, and is a great workout. It is very quiet, and has alot of options from very easy, to a very strenuous workout. I am starting out slow and working my way up as my other machine did not have as many resistance levels, and the first level is challenging for me! The only down side for me was that it took 2 weeks to get here; but it was worth the wait. Great investment!
