not bad. cheapest i've seen this was 1799.99 and that didn't include shipping. so for $1680 with shipping this monstrosity to your door i'd say this is as good as it gets! i mean until they come out with a higher model that pushes the price of this one down, but all depends how soon one needs to shed the calories.

do you mind letting me know how the delivery was? did they bring it all the way into your house for you into whichever room? were they good/careful with handling the machine?

delivery was easy. i can't comment if they'll move it to a specific room, but i plan on having it in the living room, which was where they dropped it off. they do bring it inside, whereas some other vendors might just drop it off at the curb. i would say they were careful with the machine.

I am debating between this and the regular elliptical like Sole E95. Anyone has some feedback?

this is more of a steptical, a combo of stepper and elliptical. small footprint, good tech. quiet. i was on it for 1 hour yesterday and it was a great workout.

I had a similar preform elliptical and used it 6 days a week and about 4 months in it started dripping grease dust. by about 7 months the grease became a real problem and the frame cracked along a weld. proform honored the warranty but they will not do repairs. you'll need to take it back to the store to do an exchange or refund. something to keep in mind since these machines are large and heavy. the warranty on this model is also shorter than what they've offered in the past.

there are lots of online reviews comparing the two. you're probably going to get better information researching through google and the videos than asking the small sample size here. i considered the max trainer personally cuz of the "snazzy" commercials, but found it was overpriced in comparison to what you can get from the proform hiit including better features and displays and workout programs

I don't quite recall, it's been about almost a year since it took it back for a refund as there wasn't an equivalent unit in stock to exchange it for.
it had a year warranty on parts/labour and a lifetime warranty on the frame. sad to see they've lowered it to 90 days.
just check under the machine now and then to make sure its clean. the grease looks like black sand until you touch it. it comes from the bearings area.
oh and if you work up a sweat wipe down the machine anywhere there's a drop, and dry it right after as the metal they use rusts.

Thanks for sharing your experience. Will definitely keep in mind to do wipe downs.
Regarding the warranty I'm confused... Below is the warranty information I read about before buying


Warranty
The ProForm® HIIT Trainer Pro is protected with a Lifetime Frame Warranty, 5-Year Parts Warranty, and 2-Year Labor Warranty. Please note: Lifetime Warranty pertains to the lifetime of the original purchaser.
