This is a very good elliptical but you can buy it at Costco under a different name for $699.
The CX 1600 is a follow up to the NordicTrack Elite 1300. These are very good units with solid drive system designs. Unfortunately for Sears, Costco and Sam's sell a similar version for much less. At $1100 it is an OK value but we would only buy the CX 1600 if they were out of stock at the other retailers.
