Comments

  • The Proform 850 is the only elliptical that allows you to play games and listen to music in the $600 price range. It is also backed up by a one year parts and labor warranty – not many ellipticals in this price range come with a warranty longer than 90 days. Pretty much one of the best elliptical in terms of overall value. For $599, you’re really getting a lot for your money. Though not built for the hardcore enthusiast, it’s the perfect entry level elliptical.
