The E11.9 is a solid elliptical with good quality and a decent ellipse motion.
While it doesn't give you the features that the Elite 12.7 you get most of the quality that the 12.7 has. The ellipse motion on this machine is not the best we have ever seen but for $1000 you can't have everything. The only real drawback we can see is the warranty fulfillment that NordicTrack provides. They don't give you the service that Sole does but the public has spoken and they would rather have good features rather than service, and the Sole doesn't come close to NordicTrack in terms of features.
