The e7.7 is probably the best value in the FreeMotion elliptical lineup this year. While you may be asking how a $3500 elliptical could be the best value for your home you really need to consider what you are getting for your money. It is high quality and durable so you probably won't have to deal with Freemotion's poor customer service. A true "full commercial" machine, outstanding features, and a solid design package for under $5000 is really amazing in my book. The only drawback to this machine is if you ever have to use their warranty service. Other than that you have my blessing to buy this machine? If that matters at all to you.
The e7.7 was another new introduction a few seasons ago and it did not disappoint. High-quality components with an aggressive pricing structure make us feel comfortable giving this unit a good rating. You may like other units better but this unit won't disappoint. Freemotion debuted the e7.5 and the e7.7 five years ago to the specialty marketplace. While one of the best values in the elliptical market, in our opinion, these machines have not gained much traction with specialty dealers. The good thing is that if you can't find them at a local specialty dealer you can buy them directly online
The E7.7 won our Second Place 2010 Best Buy award for the $2,000 to $2,499 dollar range.
