The whole review format is new! Where are the Best Buy selections?!? Things change and so have our reviews! Instead of Best Buy selections, we now have a 10 Best List. Two weeks ago, we examined our Elliptical of the Year pick but this week, we will look at the 10 Best List! So with no further delay, let’s take a quick peek at the 10 Best:
NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial
True Performance 300
Precor EFX 423
Proform Smart Strider 495 CSE
Yowza Navarre Pilot
xTerra Free Style 5.8E
Precor EFX 221
A quick synopsis of each:
NordicTrack A.C.T. Commercial – While there is nothing “commercial” about this machine it is an uncommonly good machine for the money. When you look at the features, quality and the money you have to spend this machine is one of my top choice in terms of value!
True Performance 300 – The cost of this machine is not for the faint of heart but it is an outstanding quality machine. If you are looking for quality and a company to stand behind their machine this is the one for you.
Precor EFX 423 – The EFX 423 provides the best combination of quality, features, value for the discriminating purchaser of ellipticals. This is not for the budget conscience buyer but if you love Precor commercial machines this is your machine.
Horizon EX-59 – The EX-59 is the best quality elliptical under $700 in the US right now.
Proform Smart Strider 495 CSE – The 495 CSE gives you good quality and excellent features for an affordable price in the lower end of ellipticals.
Yowza Navarre Pilot – Yowza gives good customer service, and excellent design in the Pilot elliptical. While not the biggest company, Yowza has demonstrated staying power in the market.
NordicTrack SE9i – The SE9i is one of the perennial most popular ellipticals sold in the US each year. This is due to its combination of price, quality and features. This year’s version doesn’t disappoint.
Xterra Free Style 5.8E – The 5.8 E gives the consumer good quality and an excellent warranty for the money. If you’re into safety for your purchase this is a good option.
True M30 – The M30 is the highest quality elliptical in the $2,000 price range and is a great option for consumers that want quality and good customer service.
Precor EFX 221 – Precor has the best designed elliptical motion on the market today in our opinion, and their lowest price elliptical doesn’t disappoint.
