Vision S 7200 Elliptical Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The S 7200 is an excellent machine for a decent price.
Perhaps the only drawback of the unit is its sheer size and footprint. Beyond that it has good quality, reasonable features and good adjustability.
The Vision S 7200 is a great elliptical. At $3,699, it's a good value. If the price is too steep for you, you can step down to the S 7100, which offers similar quality at $900 less. The only problem is that you'll lose the adjustability that you get with this model.
Ergonomically speaking, this model is pretty good. You'll usually have to pay at least $4,000 to find an elliptical that offers a more natural range of motion, but there are a few models that sell for less than $2,000 that are better in this area. The adjustability is great. The stride length can be set between 20"-23" giving you some options to make this machine comfortable for your body type. There are also 24 levels of resistance and the incline can be set from 13-39%. This allows you to set this elliptical to your fitness levels. There are very few models that have more options for adjustments, and the ones that do usually cost about $6,000.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine isn't great. It's not that the life expectancy is short, but there are models that sell for less than $1,000 that we expect to last longer than this one. The quality of parts is also good, but not very impressive considering the high cost.
The noise levels on this model are fairly low. Most ellipticals make the same amount of noise regardless of cost, but this is one of the few machines that is quieter than average. Only two models that we reviewed in this price range make less noise during operation than this one does.
The warranty on the Vision S 7200 is okay. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 7 years, and the frame and generator is covered for life. Many ellipticals that are this expensive come with better warranties.
