Vision X 10 Elliptical Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
While a decent machine, the X10 is hopelessly outclassed by others in this price range.
Vision needs to upgrade the console, and add some limited adjustability just to be competitive in this price range.
The Vision X 10 isn't a bad elliptical, but at $999, it doesn't come close to the competition. If this is your price range, you'd be better off with a model from NordicTrack or Epic. This model just has too many shortcoming to warrant this high of a price.
Ergonomically speaking, this machine is awful. Very few ellipticals at this price point have a less natural range of motion than this one has. The lack of adjustability is just sad. The stride length is fixed at 20". This doesn't give you any ability to fit the machine to your particular body type. The resistance levels, however, can be set between 1-16. This allows you to at least alter the model to fit your personal fitness levels.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this elliptical is very price appropriate. Most of the models in this price range have a comparable life expectancy. There are only one or two that are more durable. The quality of parts used is also good for the amount of money you spend. There are many downsides to this machine, but the components and sturdiness don't fall into that category.
The noise levels of this elliptical are average. This is common for most models regardless of price, but those that cost less than $1,000 tend to be a bit louder. You're not going to find a quieter machine in this price range.
The warranty on the Vision X 10 is good. Labor is covered for 1 year, the parts and brake are covered for 3 years, and the frame is covered for life. It's very rare to find coverage that's better than this on such an affordable elliptical. This shows that Vision has a lot of faith in this machine's ability to last.
