Comparison of the Proform SpaceSaver DX and the Proform Power 995i: Let’s start with the most noticeable difference between these two models which is the motor capacity. The Power 995i has a 3.0HP motor capacity which is one of the strongest motors we’ve seen in this price range. However, not to be outdone, the upgraded SpaceSaver DX has even a stronger motor rating of 3.5HP. Expectedly, the SpaceSaver DX which is the more expensive of the two models has the longer warranty for parts and labor. This model also comes with a wireless chest strap for heart rate monitoring, has 4 additional workout apps, plus a bigger and better display as compared to the Power 995i. Another major difference is the decline function which the Power 995i does not have. In conclusion, we can say that upgrades between the two models were made by Proform to benefit more serious runners. In terms of basic features, the Power 995i does not really disappoint. But you get upgrades with the SpaceSaver DX (i.e. additional programs, better display, decline function, chest strap).

Good points: Has almost all of the extras its more expensive cousins have in the Proform family but at a much lower starting price Extremely well priced but it’s on sale at the sub price range Decent quality with a decent warranty warranty could be extended by one more year to attest to its quality and it would make this Elliptical a real knockout Comments: On paper, this is probably one of the best Ellipticals by Proform considering the price. It’s definitely one of the more aggressively priced Ellipticals in Proform’s lineup. However, one has to wonder if this this too good of a deal to be true.
