While the E7 Pro Sports is an excellent quality machine, the upgraded console you get is hardly worth the $400 price difference you have with the E7 Pro. The Landice E7 Pro Sports is a waste of money in our opinion. The upgraded console is hardly worth an extra $400. Essentially the same machine as the E7 Pro, the E7 Pro Sports is an excellent machine from a solid company. There are only two problems with the machine, it's huge, and the E7 Pro is a much better value.
The console upgrade on the Pro Sports version of the E7 is not really worth the money. As to the quality of the machine, it as durable an elliptical that can be had on the market today.
The Landice E7 Pro Sports is a good quality elliptical. It is a bit pricey at $3,395. We suggest not worrying about the console upgrade and going with the cheaper Landice E7 Pro. It has a similar quality for $300 less. Either way, this model was the 2nd runner up for our Best Buy award in the $3,000-3,999 price range.
The ergonomics of this machine is better than average. At this price, however, better than average isn't really good enough. If you look hard enough, you'll be able to find some ellipticals priced around $1,500 that have a more natural range of motion than this model does. Its adjustability isn't too bad. The stride length can change from 17"-23" giving a wide range that should be able to accommodate users of varying sizes.
The projected reliability of this model is pretty good. It's hard to find many models that have a higher life expectancy than this one. The ones that do tend to make this machine seem inexpensive. The quality of parts isn't easy to beat, either. Oddly enough, however, several of the models that use better parts are sold at a cheaper price.
The noise level is good. You don't find too many models on the market that are better than the average elliptical at remaining quiet during operation, but this is one of the models that does. If this is important to you, you should consider this machine.
The warranty is really what makes the Landice E7 Pro Sports worth buying. Labor is covered for 1 year, while the parts and frame are covered for life. A lifetime coverage of parts is insane, and it really shows that Landice doesn't expect you to have problems with this model. If this doesn't convince you to consider this elliptical, nothing will.
The console upgrade on the Pro Sports version of the E7 is not really worth the money, but the value helped to make it our 2nd Runner Up Winner 2013 Best Buy in the $3999 category.
