Landice makes an extremely durable machine. You will need to have a very large area set aside if you purchase one since they are huge. Great quality, and a good company supporting the product.
Landice builds ellipticals that hold up under almost all environments both home and commercial. The drawbacks of the E7 Pro is its size, price, and the simple console configuration. Other than that if you want as solid a machine as is on the market you could do a lot worse.
The Landice E7 Pro is a solid elliptical. Landice has become trusted for producing some of the most durable fitness machines on the market. Unfortunately, this has allowed them to charge high prices just because they're name is on the machine. At $3,095, this model is quite an investment. Other than that, the size of this elliptical is the biggest drawback.
Ergonomically speaking, this model is average. That's not at all impressive at this high of a cost. There are ellipticals that sell for less than $1,000 that offer a more natural range of motion. The adjustability is slightly disappointing, as well. The stride adjusts between 17-23", which allows you to fit this elliptical to your body type. You can find models that sell for $2,000 less than this one that provides more options for adjustments.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is good. Still, there are cheaper options that have comparable life expectancies. The quality of parts used is also good, but they would be more notable if the price tag of this elliptical wasn't so high.
The noise levels on this model are below average. Most ellipticals make about the same amount of noise regardless of the price, but this is one of the few machines that is quieter than normal. If noise levels are a major concern for you, only a select few ellipticals make less noise than this one, and they all cost at least an extra $500.
The warranty on the Landice E7 Pro is fantastic. Labor is covered for 1 year, while the parts, frame, and wear items are covered for life. You're not going to find an elliptical with a better warranty than this. Landice may ask you to pay a lot for their machines, but they stand behind them, as well.
The Landice E7 Pro won our 2nd runner up Best Buy in the $3999 category in 2014 and in 2012.
The E7 Pro is the best "value" model Landice offers for home use. The Lifetime Parts warranty and their customer service are worth every penny in this center drive elliptical. This main drawback is its massive footprint (74" x 36" x 66") and it weighs a ton "fully-assembled" (323lbs). The other major shortcoming is the wimpy 23lb permanent magnet brake/flywheel. This "over-utilized" design has been "under-spec" for many years in the home and this one should have better for the money. Good thing is, it's covered for the "life" you own the machine because you will replace the servo and brake at least once before you buy another one.
