Just right for me
4 Star Review   By Zapper on NordicTrack.com - Nov 29, 2013   

While the Strider is not "whisper" quiet, I can work out downstairs without my wife hearing me upstairs. The setup was not too difficult, but a little time consuming as I made sure all of my connections were tight and the moving parts were well greased. This is a very solid machine that works well and delivers a great workout. I have been using it for four months now and am very pleased about this purchase.

Worth every penny
5 Star Review   By Buddad on NordicTrack.com - Nov 26, 2013   

I get a good workout, I can track my progress. I am older so protection of knees, hips, joints was necessary. I have had no problems post workouts.

AudioStrider
4 Star Review   By Shasta on NordicTrack.com - Nov 12, 2013   

The AudioStrider came with everything I needed to assemble it, plus easy to follow instructions. I was impressed from the moment I started using it. It's like having a gym-quality elliptical in the comfort of my home. Great value.The only flaw I've found so far is that one of the plastic joint covers flies off at higher RPMs.

Best Piece of Workout Equipment
5 Star Review   By LuuLuu on NordicTrack.com - Nov 6, 2013   

The AudioStrider 990 Elliptical is a solid piece of workout equipment. It has been rated the top elliptical for years and for the money is the best deal on the market. I love the heart rate monitor that came with the equipment and the fit module that I purchased with the elliptical gives you endless workout possibilities! I could not be happier with my selection!

Great machine despite damage
3 Star Review   By Mom2cindylouwho on NordicTrack.com - Oct 31, 2013   

Exercise-wise, I would rate this all 5 stars. We purchased our machine last week & have been on it almost every day. Winter is approaching & oversees w/just one car, would make getting to the gym a bit difficult. Now, I have no excuse! I love the variety of programs & find them more challenging than the machines at our gym. The MP3 ports allow me to watch iPad shows ... and workouts to fly by. I give 3.5 stars solely for the quality. When delivered, the box looked fine, but when opened we found the back shell (both top/bottom) cracked and broken in several places. To use the machine, we have to take off the shell, so the moving pieces do not knock it. We contacted the company for possible replacement pieces, but never heard back.

Great machine
3 Star Review   By Jason'sthoughts on NordicTrack.com - Oct 30, 2013   

This is the first piece of exercise equipment I have ever owned. I am glad I made this purchase. After two months it is still going strong. I am a big guy and this machine is as sturdy as any piece of professional gym equipment I have used. I did have some squeaking noise coming from under the right pedal. They order some parts and sent in a request for service. The guy came out a week later and fixed the problem. I am again satisfied with this purchase.

I really like it when it works
2 Star Review   By Reluctant Reviewer on NordicTrack.com - Oct 21, 2013   

Just bought this product about three weeks ago. Assembly took some time but was not bad for those who are used to doing such things. It was quiet and my wife and I both like the machine, until it stopped working. After 6 uses the incline motor did some weird things and now it doesn't work at all. Customer service is sending a control module but who knows if that will fix the problem. I asked for a technical manual so I could do some diagnosis (most appliances which I am used to working on offer these for their techs). I was told it didn't exists. I requested a house call given that it is obviously under warranty. No such luck. It also developed a loud noise from parts that I did not assemble. I was told they might need to be greased. Why should I be greasing parts assembled by the manufacturer? Maintenance is one thing, but we used it 6 times and the part in question is not easily accessible. It would require almost complete disassembly of the rear end and even then it would not be typical greasing of an axle but the repacking of bearings. The squeak does seems to have passed and we use it now without the incline while we wait for parts.

Good machine could use a few improvements
4 Star Review   By Strideright on NordicTrack.com - Sep 30, 2013   

I like the elliptical. There are a few things that it needs in my opinion. The rubber tread on the foot pedal is coming out of the pedal and it won't stay in, also the arm levers could be positioned closer to the user, they are to far of a reach to feel comfortable. The machine is a great machine otherwise. The white lithium grease that came with it did not have any instructions so I'm not sure what it is for.

990 Pro Elliptical Nice Excercise
4 Star Review   By Vern on NordicTrack.com - Sep 28, 2013   

I was originally looking for a treadmill for exercising but someone recommended that I get an elliptical, so I wouldn't injure my back that had been fused. This 990 Pro is just the ticket, and very low impact. I paid for the delivery and in home set up and they had it all together in about 1 hour. So far I've had no problems, it works great and is very quiet. It even has a fan to cool you. The drink holder is a little out of the way and hard to reach but still is ok. I'm 6'3" and my wife is 5'2" and everything is adjustable to accommodate us both with no problems. With IFIt, you can choose from soo many workouts, (timed, calories, courses,etc) or design your own. You can even have Jillian(biggest loser) give you a workout, although I'm not quite ready for her just yet. I reviewed quite a few before I decided on the Nordic Track. It's ratings, features, and warranty made my decision easy.

Works perfectly
4 Star Review   By MerBear on NordicTrack.com - Sep 16, 2013   

I just got this elliptical a week ago, and I love it. I was surprised that the display is a clunky blue/white and not a color display that I thought it would be. And you can cycle backwards on this elliptical, which was a question I had before I bought it. It is very tall, but fortunately our room has a high ceiling (otherwise you might be cramped up near the ceiling if you are tall and have a 10 foot ceiling). It is reasonably quiet and very easy to use. So far, we are very happy with this purchase.

It is a very well made exercise machine
4 Star Review   By Los Angeles on NordicTrack.com - Aug 12, 2013   

I received and put together this elliptical machine about a week ago. So far, it is running smoothly and offers a variety of exercise programs. The quality of the manufacturing is highly graded. The finishing shows great craftsmanship. It is too soon to tell how durable this product will be considering the short duration I have used. Time will tell

Pretty good so far
4 Star Review   By SBWag on NordicTrack.com - Aug 6, 2013   

So far so good! Order and delivery went pretty smooth. Assembly took about an hour and a half - very nice detailed instructions!! The heartrate sensors on the hand grips were scratched up and one has trouble staying attached. Haven't tried them, so I don't know yet if they work okay. As far as how it works, there is a clicking sound coming from the left footpad. I cant seem to get rid of it. Kind of annoying, but doesnt affect the performance. Other than that, the machine works great!

Fabulous workout. AWFUL shipping experience.
4 Star Review   By Wisconsin customer on NordicTrack.com - Jul 22, 2013   

I love my eliptical. It is smooth, the workouts are great, the sound is fabulous. It is sturdy and offers a great workout. It was a bit of a pain to put together, but my husband managed in about 1 1/2 hours.I do feel obligated to mention the customer service however. NordicTrack used the company Estes to ship my machine and I had NOTHING but problems with them. They never called to schedule and appointment for delivery. I had to contact them 7 times to finally arrange delivery (and then they still got the instructions wrong and showed up at the wrong time). When I mentioned this to NordicTrack, I basically got an "Once it leaves us it's out of our hands" response. So I give the machine 4 stars, but customer service a 1 at best.

So far so good
4 Star Review   By Jesus follower on NordicTrack.com - Jul 12, 2013   

We ordered the product off the website and waited for the delivery. It came in the expected timeframe. We opted to put it together rather than pay for that option. All it takes is two people and common sense to follow the instructions from the provided booklet. Fairly easy just timeconsuming. We put it together in less than 3 hours. We have now put it to use for two weeks and it is what we expected. EXERCISE!! LOL. Make sure that this is something you are committed to. Do not let it become an expensive clothes rack. We were exercising 4 months before committing to the AudioStrider and then we researched various types of ellipticals and found this to be one of the top rated for our price range.

So Far So Good and a note on shipping
4 Star Review   By grnmtnboy on NordicTrack.com - Jun 24, 2013   

Only had the elliptical for a few weeks. So far, so good. I LOVE the pre-programmed workouts. The customer service rep who helped me with the purchase was also great! I am a former competitive athlete who now at 51 has joint issues that prevent high impact training. The 990 has gotten me back on the fitness path and it feels GREAT! We shopped everything in the price range and this machine wins hands down. The angled "paddles" on the handles are the most comfortable and far superior to others in this or even higher price range. The only hiccup was the shipping company.(Estes) Apparently, I needed a writ from congress and a waiver signed by St. Peter to get them to help me move the box 30ft into the house. That would have been nice to know beforehand. They were also supposed to call pre-delivery so I could meet them. Nope, they couldn't do that either. They called from the driveway where they promptly left the 280lbs+ crate in the dirt. They couldn't wait the 12.4 minutes it took for me to dash home from work to get it on the waiting dolly. So, I arrived moments after their hasty getaway and got my 18yr old daughter to help me move it in to dodge the rain. Yes, the rain was why I specifically asked (and they agreed) for them to call me BEFORE the truck got there. The shipping company was perfectly content to just leave the unit in the rain and the mud. NordicTrack should more carefully select their LTL shippers. Bottom line...great unit so far. Love it. However, if you buy this unit from NordicTrack ask very specific questions about the delivery protocol and make sure that NordicTrack and the delivery company give the same answers.

Pleased
4 Star Review   By Letliveyo on NordicTrack.com - Jun 14, 2013   

First the warning, my order arrived 1 month late after purchase. The package was very heavy and took 3 people to slide it indoors. It took my husband and me 2.5 hrs to put it together. The finished product was very stylish and looked of great quality. The workout was great. The fan worked fine and the machine did not wobble. There was some noise when the incline or resistance changed, otherwise it's a smooth operator. It does take quite a substantial space. I have had it for 1 wk and up till now I am very happy. I hope it lasts me at least 2-3 yrs and I am ok with that.

3 Star Review   By GOTOGUY on NordicTrack.com - Jun 13, 2013   

This was a bit difficult to assemble, but it gives a powerful workout. It seems to want you to think you need to subscribe to expensive iFit but it works great without it.

Great Machine, Easy to use.
4 Star Review   By OPAL on NordicTrack.com - May 15, 2013   

I gave it 4 stars due to the fact that I haven't had it very long. So far, it runs well. I would like to purchase the I fit, but after some research, I am not sure how it works with this machine. I understand that I would have to set my I Pad on the console to be able to use the features. I would love to hear from others who are using the I Fit in this way. If I had to do it over, I would buy a machine with a built in browser, so it would be more convenient to use the I fit. I didn't realize that the 7 inch display would not change. But the machine itself is very nice.

The Real Deal Ellipitical
4 Star Review   By Reggie on NordicTrack.com - Apr 27, 2013   

This machine is no joke it will work you out, the intensity levels and various programs will keep you striving toward the next level. Again the real deal, unlike any elliptical that I would spend 30 minutes on and barely break a sweat.

Works great
4 Star Review   By jaygray76 on NordicTrack.com - Apr 19, 2013   

Gives you a great workout. However it is a bit noisy, like something is popping and rubbing in the rear of the machine. For the price just wish it was quieter. Also a month free for iFit would be appreciated.

Several Week Delay
4 Star Review   By Cindy on NordicTrack.com - Apr 4, 2013   

I am very happy with the elliptical but extremely unhappy with the delivery process. I had placed my order on March 12th. The elliptical was sent to a trucking company for them to deliver to my house. They had called me on 18th which was a Monday and to let me know it was in and to set up a time, WELL they told me it was to late to set up delivery for that Tuesday which is the only day they deliver to my area SO I had to wait to the next Tuesday the 26th. When I finally did receive it the box was damaged and the whole shield cover and sides were cracked and scrached. So once again I had to call the service department which they did order the parts and I just received them yesterday the 3rd of April and NOW I have to call the local technician to come and repair it. So no I am very unhappy with this process and if I would of known all this I probably would of purchased from a local store.

Everything I wanted....and MORE
4 Star Review   By Stuart1865 on NordicTrack.com - Mar 17, 2013   

First, as with most people buying an elliptical, I arrived almost at the point of "paralysis of analysis" given the multitude of brands and the 2 basic designs. Then, where to draw the line price point-wise. Best bang-for-the-buck. Best (necessary) features. Best all-around ratings. Best customer support. GIVEN: NO elliptical machine is perfect. No company is perfect. NO machine is 100% accurate with measuring heart BPM or calorie burn. Nothing is without issues. So...how to assure myself of the best decsion was my objective. I learned that junk lies pretty much under $500. Acceptable but limited was between $500 and $800. Fairly decent was $800 to $1200, And Superior went $1200-$1500. Beyond that is was just bells-and-whistles. After ALMOST going with a $1400 front-drive brand which featured the iFit integration....but hesitating for a few reasons - namely the recent iFit upgrade transition issues and the higher price of the other model....I went to a major retail department store and checked out the AudioStrider 90 PRO. Immediately it felt - to me anyway - better "balanced", quieter, and more comfortable than the front-drive type. But the PRICE! HUNDREDS less! I had my daughter get on. She LOVED it! What I perceived was a SUPERIOR-level machine at a realistic price point. So I went online and purchased it. Shipping was about two weeks, with a courteous delivery to our door. Sadly, the carton had been most OBVIOUSLY damaged in transit with a huge gash on the side. Making note of it, we then let the drivers go on their way, then snipped open the carton, removing piece-by-piece the machine components. It turned out that there were a few smaller components missing and and front housing cover was broken. Dismayed, but not angry (because I had read that these things happen!), I called customer service. Replacement of parts was done promptly and pleasantly, albeit a couple of errors along the way. I have since purchased some "virtual touring" videos to keep us focused while on the AudioStrider. I do plan to install iFit once it stabilizes. For now, it is a fabulous way to burn calories without any impact on my feet. With 2 weeks under our belts, we are "happy campers".

Astronomical workout!!!
5 Star Review   By BattleAxe on NordicTrack.com - Feb 22, 2013   

This eliptical is by far the best work out I have had compared to professional gym equipment at any gym I've ever been a member to. There are a few parts that sqeak and some of the clips broke during assembly but someone is coming out to look at it and make the necessary repairs. This is by far a plus...

Worked for 45 minutes then broke
1 Star Review   By Sally R on NordicTrack.com - Feb 14, 2013   

I used this for 35 minutes in total; for 30 minutes I went forward, for 5 minutes backwards; when I went forward again, it made a loud squealing, scraping noise. I called to report it, and have been set up for a repair - the first available - nearly 4 weeks later! The repair date is next week, so I'll let you know if it's fixed. All and all, very disappointed. I hope after the repair it meets my expectations.

Very smooth
4 Star Review   By Rob on NordicTrack.com - Feb 13, 2013   

This is a very smooth machine! It's quiet as well. Does everything it says it does except that the stride could be longer. You cannot really adjust the stride length except by moving the incline. If you are six foot and taller, this machine probably will be too small.

Very challenging
5 Star Review   By Dhamdawg on NordicTrack.com - Feb 13, 2013   

Down ramp on handle was not working, replacement sent right away. Great service. Only other comment, says distance in meters or miles, how do you change or is it set for location? Also I tried to move reed closer but no difference made in output. It seems like what reads a mile is t least one an a half miles.

NordicTrack is great, there outsourced departments are atrocious
2 Star Review   By Ugh on NordicTrack.com - Feb 13, 2013   

The machine is great, I've used it everyday and had few issues. The journey from payment to delivery however is one I must warn you all about! I purchased my machine on 1/11/13, I have emails stating it takes 7-10 days for delivery. In all it took over 3 weeks, and the outsourced delivery company blamed NordicTrack in one of the worst displays of customer service I have ever seen. Upon arrival the machine had 2 small cracks which NordicTrack is supposedly going to repair.

Great investment in our health!
5 Star Review   By tlc on NordicTrack.com - Feb 13, 2013   

Been pleased with NordicTrack since it showed up at the door. Very helpful truckers. Easy to assemble, just a couple hours. Got started using the Audiostrider the day after it arrived. Now into a regular routine of three days on, one off. Thirty minutes each time. Should be in great shape by summer.

Great Machine - I love it
5 Star Review   By Happy in Moline IL on NordicTrack.com - Dec 11, 2012   

I love my new elliptical, this is actually my 3rd one. I would highly recommend the NordicTrack. My son (19) put it together. This a quality piece of equipment, I purchased my last one in 2005 and thought it was time to upgrade and this is perfect. I love having my own gym and not going outside or leaving my home to get my fitness accomplished. If anyone is thinking of starting a home gym, I?d suggest starting with the elliptical, this gives a full workout.

Good workout
4 Star Review   By emmaw453 on NordicTrack.com - Dec 6, 2012   

I have had this elliptical for a couple months now and, overall, I am very happy with my purchase. I paid to have the machine assembled for me and I'm glad I did - it is one heavy son of a gun. The machine is very quiet and the stride length is good for me. It did start to make a clicking noise after a few weeks, but recalibrating the ramp (really easy - just follow directions in the manual) fixed the problem. I really like the calorie burning programs. You can choose workouts by how long and how many calories you want to burn. My only complaint is that I wish you could input your true weight to get a better idea of your calorie burn. All in all, it was a good purchase.

GREAT product - worth every penny and more!
5 Star Review   By dustsculpture on NordicTrack.com - Oct 29, 2012   

The only problem I have is that apparently the "calories burned" are for someone who weighs 170 lbs. I don't know how to tell how many calories we've burned because my wife is way under that and I'm a quite a bit over that (but dropping quickly). Other than that, I LOVE it. And even that problem isn't so bad, because at least I know I burned AT LEAST as many calories as it says, and probably more!

Big Man Tested
5 Star Review   By PDFuzz on NordicTrack.com - May 14, 2012   

I am on this 5 days a week and LOVE IT!! In the beginning there was some noise that came from under the rear cover but after the 1st workout all of the noises went away and have not heard it since. I still gave it 5 stars because I figured that I would hear some type of noise especially when a 6'5" 269 lbs(formerly 300 lbs prior to buying this machine after the 1st month) steps on this awesome machine. Best investment I have made in 20 years when it comes to exercising!!! You won't be sorry except for the next day after a honest workout!

Better than expected - well worth the money!
4 Star Review   By Big Al Mighty on NordicTrack.com - May 13, 2012   

I have been using my Audiostrider 990 Pro Elliptical for 10-days. I will update the review in a year if I remember. 4.5 stars because of the loud fan noise and lowest 15-degree angle still has a "step" feel and would like it to be more flat. The machine itself is whisper quiet but the fan ruins it and my wife and I use it in the bedroom early mornings while the other person is sleeping. Otherwise I would have given it 5-stars. After reading poor quality reviews on other websites I felt an obligation to write that in my experience it is a top-notch machine and high quality. I built it, following the instructions exactly and taking extra time lubricating all of the washers, bushings, shafts, and rubbing parts. I tightened every bolt and screw, checking them twice. I am a mechanical engineer of 15-years and a handy-man around the house. This took me 1.5 hours to complete and required a second person for about 5-minutes on two different spots. The only improvement would be to install the monitor before the decorative cover which makes access to the bottom screws difficult. I found the craftmanship and fit to be exceptional for a mass-produced product. Yes, I could nit-pick the gaps between some of the mating parts, but nothing bad to say about the overall quality. I am very happy with this purchase! This is a quiet machine, has a lot of nice features, heart rate grips work great and quick, built in speakers work nicely and okay volume range, generous size cup holder, at full 40-degree angle it serves as a stepper as well as an elliptical, nice range of motion front to back and you can really get a good upper body workout by forcing the resistance to your arms, good low impact workout. I cannot rate the iFit because I am cheap and do not think anything is worth paying $10 per month for! The built-in program choices will keep my interest level until I'm ready for another machine in 5-years.

My Challenger
5 Star Review   By Heidi on NordicTrack.com - Apr 14, 2012   

I wanted & needed an elliptical that was going to challenge me. This elliptical has done that thus far. I would go to the gym and get on an elliptical on level 11-12. I didn't feel like I was challenged. This bad boy the first day on it I ended up as far as level 5 & it kicked my a**. I love this and I am happy I invested the money I did on it. This elliptical will challenge me for a long time and that is what I was looking for.

Great machine!!
5 Star Review   By Skip on NordicTrack.com - Mar 30, 2012   

Took a little over an hour and half to put together. was very easy with the step by step instructions. machine works as advertised. Its quiet, works great and we love it. I actually look forward to working out. The Ifit live is ok. Just cant get rid of jillians voice during her work outs. Not bad but her voice comes on every min and if you have your music hooked up, ever min on the min it will interrupt your music and she will give her little comment. So turn the volume down and use other speakers and its great. :)

We just recieved the Audiostrider two days ago. When the truck delivered it the box was beat up and I was worried that it was damaged but it wasn't. Then after 4 hours of assembly which was nicely numbered for easly assembly. It worked better than I thought would. Great product!

Meets expectations
4 Star Review   By kitten on NordicTrack.com - Mar 13, 2012   

I have had my Audiostrider for about 2 weeks now. It is great to have an elliptical right in the house, no more excuses! This machine does give you a great workout for the price. The resistance in this machine seems to be a little tighter than the gym Ellipticals. When I first used it I was only able to do 25 minutes. I can now do 45 minutes but believe me when I say, I am worn out when I'm done! If you want to challenge your body, this machine will do it! Con: Fan is a little loud.

The best elliptical ever!!!! Exceeds all expectattions
5 Star Review   By fitnessbuff2011 on NordicTrack.com - Mar 10, 2012   

Wow- I can not say enough great things about my AudioStrider 990 Pro, new for 2012 model. This machine is incredibly engineered and well made, in addition to being most fun to use. I spent several months comparing hundreds of ellipticals and must say that nothing else even comes close>>>excellent quality as well as my customer service experience with NordicTrack. This machine is truly built to last and will help me with my weight goals including great toning and better overall health. You will not regret your purchase of this machine, and trust me, as I am very analytical and have to applaud NordicTrack for their tremendous strides in quality improvement, making for a very happy customer. This machine is the best value in the marketplace, period...nothing comes close.

Smooth...Smooth...Smooth
5 Star Review   By domj on NordicTrack.com - Feb 18, 2012   

Before I purchased my Audiostrider 990 pro I checked out so many ellipticals from so many companys and for the money this one beat them all. it is so smooth and with all the programs it comes with WOW you can't beat it. It is also built to last I have been on commercial machines and this one feels like those that cost so much more. A strong beauty. If you are looking for one stop here buy this machine period.

Machine great, delivery lacking
4 Star Review   By Netsukeman on NordicTrack.com - Jan 29, 2012   

I ordered the 990 with free basic shipping, and "basic" is just what the delivery was. My house is 150 yards down a gravel road and the Old Dominion Trucking driver refused to drive down, so the 270lb box was left on the paved road 1 1/2 football fields from my house. After dragging the box to my house behind my riding lawnmower, things got better! The machine is actually all that is promised, and all the features work as anticipated. My only problem was with a plastic trim piece including the drink holder that snaps together...with great difficulty! Other than the delivery I am well pleased

good machine, deceiving stride length
4 Star Review   By EricaM on NordicTrack.com - Jan 26, 2012   

We just received our Audiostrider 990 Pro and overall, we are pretty happy. The stride is smooth, the audio is clear and can be loud. The stride length is a bit deceiving. There is no actual stride length adjustments, it is achieved by the ramp moving up or down; which to me is NOT what was described in the profile of the equipment. The tech support was sub-par at answering this question as she had to look though the manual to even tell me that. We will see how the next 30 days goes.

Love this elliptical!
4 Star Review   By Back on track on NordicTrack.com - Jan 14, 2012   

The first elliptical arrived with damage and broken parts, but the customer service was awesome and they arranged pick up of the broken one and ordered a new one. New elliptical arrived in about two weeks. Assembly wasn't difficult, but time-consuming and tedious. Love the quiet, smooth motion. The monitor and features are awesome. The adjustable pedals, power incline, fan, built-in workouts, and ease of use make working out fun and effective. The chest-strap heart monitor is a great feature. This machine is sturdy and runs very smoothly without noise. It is a large piece of equipment and with the incline, needs space between the machine and the ceiling. It is also very heavy, and requires at least two people to move. I tried many different models and types of ellipticals, but this one puts the least strain and pressure on my knees and my back, which is very important and several back surgeries. I love this elliptical!

What a rejuvenating workout!
5 Star Review   By jhailstone on NordicTrack.com - Dec 22, 2011   

I think I like this elliptical the best. Just two minutes on level 1 and I feel so rejuvenated. I've tried treadmills, but they mostly work the legs. I just feel like I've had a total workout with my legs going up and down and my arms moving back and forth. I've been sedentary and this machine does more for me than just walking or jogging on a treadmill. I'm glad to know that there are higher levels of resistance as I build up my strength and endurance. The foot pedals have a firm grip so that my feet stay in place. My feet can even go backwards to work different muscles. And, the various handles allow me to choose how much movement my arms get; stationary or lightly moved. I tried the highest handle today after working on the lower moving handle for a week and that felt really good. I'm interested in getting my lymph system moving so my immune system will be stronger, and it helps to move my arms and legs in more ways than just walking.

Very smooth
4 Star Review   By vaininator on NordicTrack.com - Dec 21, 2011   

A very nice elliptical. It almost feels like you are operating a space ship, rather than fitness equipment. It's very smooth and user friendly. I especially like the kinda incline feature. The iPod support is always great as well.

The Best!
5 Star Review   By Jessica on NordicTrack.com - Dec 20, 2011   

I was so impressed with this elliptical! It has so many different options and information about you and your exercise performance. Not only that, but it's the most quiet elliptical I've ever heard in my entire life! 5 Stars without a doubt.

Silence is Golden!!!!
5 Star Review   By astaheli on NordicTrack.com - Dec 20, 2011   

This machine is fantastic. I couldn't even hear it. It's nice and smooth, and it's really nice on your legs. The only problem I've seen is the length of the stride. If you are over 6 feet tall, then the stride is going to feel a little short. But if you're like me and shorter than that, then this machine is fantastic!

Great Machine
5 Star Review   By edwinmoz on NordicTrack.com - Dec 15, 2011   

This machine is a masterpiece of technology. From the high-tech stress relieving foot pads to the computer controls I am thoroughly impressed with the audiostrider 990 pro.

Love it!
4 Star Review   By Danielle on NordicTrack.com - Dec 14, 2011   

I received my Audiostrider 990 about a week ago and I've used it about 4 times so far. This elliptical is extremely heavy. It's a really substantial machine and has a good feel when you are using it. It took longer than expected to put together but it was not difficult, just tedious. I love the power incline feature, the adjustable foot pedals, and how quiet the machine is. The reason I couldn't give it 4 stars is because it doesn't have built in user profiles included. I had to ask customer service how the console calculates calories if you don't put in user height and weight. They said it calculates calories based on a 170 lb user. That means, for me, when it says I've burned 200 calories, I've really burned much less because I only weigh 140 lbs. If you want more accurate calorie counts then you have to purchase the iFIT which allows you to add up to four user profiles. I just wish this was explained better BEFORE I purchased the machine. Paying the extra money for the iFIT is necessary if you want accurate calorie counts during your workout. Also, the stride length adjusts with the change in incline, you cannot adjust it yourself. Just something else I had to call and ask customer service about because the description for the machine wasn't very clear. Regardless of those two issues, I do believe this is a great machine and a good value for the money. It includes features (like the power incline) that are hard to find on other machines in this price range. The fan and ipod/iphone/android plug in is nice and the speakers sound good. Overall, I would recommend this elliptical to others and I'm very happy with my purchase. I also hope that the extra money I now have to spend on the iFIT is worth it. I guess we'll see!

Excited to lose 50 lbs before I turn 50 years old
5 Star Review   By Jeani on NordicTrack.com - Dec 7, 2011   

We picked up our Audiostrider 990 Pro from our local store. My husband put it together in a matter of hours by himself. Our family of three has all used this and we are impressed with the smooth stride, adjustable foot pedals, and the incline feature. I purchased the Ifit Wifi module as well, which installed with no issues. My personal info is loaded and I can't wait to see the pounds drop off. This is a great gym quality machine. That provides a great workout. I have used this for 3 days and no knee issues or soreness on my right knee, the low impact should prove to be a win win for my knee and me !! Will keep you posted on the weight loss. So far we feel like we made a "Consumers Best Choice" in our decision to purchase this elliptcal.

No Comparison
5 Star Review   By DHL on NordicTrack.com - Dec 6, 2011   

We tested several other machines in the store, riding them for 10 minutes at a time. There is ABSOLUTELY NO Comparison between other Ellipticals and this machine. It's new geometrics, are completely superior. AND WHY are none of the "ads" mentioning the NEW geometrics? I don't know, but this machine does not hurt your achilles OR your upper thigh, like all the rest exhibited. Try it, you'll see.
