A major increase in the MSRP of the EFX 5.23 makes us want to look at other ellipticals.
Strengths: Precor heritage.
Precor has pushed though a major price increase across the board this year with their ellipticals. Someone should have told them that raising prices during a financial crisis is probably not the best thing to do. As with Octane, the EFX 5.23 went from a shaky value last year to a real dissapointment in value terms this year. While the quality is still there, the value is not. Don't forget to look at LifeFitness, True, or Landice before you buy.
