NordicTrack E 9.5 Elliptical Review
TREADMILL DOCTOR NOTE :
The E 9.5 is a soid if yet unspectacurlar elliptical.
The Precusor to the E12.0 design that has a lot to offer, the E9.5 is a solid machine that offers reasonable quality, a good feature yet and a average warranty. All in all not a mistake if you purchase it, but we would recommend that you look at the 990 Pro or the E12.0 before you buy.</p> The Nordic Track E 9.5 is a good elliptical, but it does little to set itself apart. At $999, you're getting decent quality and plenty of features that will keep you entertained. Still, we recommend saving some money with the 990 Pro or getting a better model with the E 12.0.</p> The ergonomics on this machine is average. This isn't really bad at this price, but you can do better. In fact, the 990 Pro that sells for $100 less offers a slightly more natural range of motion. The adjustability is about the best you can hope for in such an inexpensive model. The stride length is adjustable with a maximum length of 22". The pedals are also adjustable, giving you some options to help you fit this machine to your body type.</p> The projected reliability of this elliptical is good considering the cost. Many models that cost several hundred dollars more have a similar life expectancy. The quality of parts is also what you're looking for in this price range. To find better quality parts, you'll have to spend a little more money.</p> The noise level is slightly below average, which isn't bad for such an inexpensive elliptical. The 990 Pro and E 12.0 both do better in this area, however. You can do a lot worse than this model, and we don't expect the average user to be bother by the level of noise it creates during its operation.</p> The warranty on the NordicTrack E 9.5 is okay. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts are covered for 3 years, and the frame is covered for life. You're not going to get coverage much better than this without paying more. If you're willing to spend an extra $200, you can jump up to the E 12.0, which offers a much more impressive warranty.</p>
