Reebok T 7.90 Elliptical Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Almost identical to the RL6.0 and 7.0, its hard to recommend this unit for $300 to $400 more.
We would recommend that you buy, basically the same machine at Costco.com under the RL 6.0 and 7.0 label. You will spend less money and you will have Costco's lifetime return policy to fall back on.
The Reebok T 7.90 is an elliptical that costs $999. It's very similar to the RL 6.0 and RL 7.0, which cost $400 and $300 less, respectively. Along with the offering comparable quality and features, you can purchase those models from Costco. Costco offers a lifetime return policy, giving them a distinct advantage over the T 7.90 to go along with their more favorable price tags.
Ergonomically speaking, this model is pretty good. Only a select few models in this price range offer a more natural range of motion. The adjustability is similarly impressive. The stride length is fixed at 18", so you have to hope that works with your particular body type. You do have the options of selecting between 12 levels of resistance in order to make this machine work with your personal fitness levels.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this model is okay, but you can certainly find ellipticals that we expect to last longer without jumping up in price. The quality of parts used is also decent, but they are nothing particularly special.
The noise levels of this machine are higher than average. Most ellipticals make about the same amount of noise, though it is more common for those sold below $1,000 to be slightly louder. Still, if noise levels are a major concern for you, you can easily find quieter models in this price range.
The warranty on the Reebok T 7.90 is awful. Parts and labor are covered for 1 year. This lack of coverage makes it appear that Reebok doesn't expect this elliptical to hold up well to any kind of exercise routine. It is particularly telling that there is no coverage on the brake or the frame, both of which are often covered for life on other models.
