The 735 E is a solid machine similar to the Smart Strider lineup of ellipticals from Proform with a solid ellipse motion.
The 735 E has solid quality at this price range but definitely has less quality than most $1000 machines. You get a very good ellipse motion, OK quality, and some features along with a light warranty for our industry. The biggest drawback you will have is if you have to actually use the warranty. Profrorm's warranty fulfillment really sucks. It would not be uncommon to have to wait up to 40 minutes on hold with the factory before you got to talk with a person during January.
