Paying $2299 for a Lifecore VST-V6 is insane, paying $1499 would seem like a good deal.
The VST-V6 has good adjustability, decent features and average quality. It's all you should expect when you are looking at an elliptical in the $1500 price range. The real problem is that its listed for $2300. Lifecore really needs to work on the price.
