The ultimate starter elliptical again.
The Proform 450 is a carbon copy of the Proform XP Razor. Therefore I will give an exact quote of that review now: "The Proform XP Razor was created to allow the user to have an incredibly narrow stance while using the machine. What they don't tell you is that the machine is also incredibly cheap. You should know this by the price, but in case you didn't just understand that you cannot buy a quality elliptical under $500. If you want to buy this unit to see if you will exercise consistently before spending more money, then this is an excellent unit for that goal." Ditto.
