Good Points: Aggressively priced whilst providing solid basics such as 24 workout apps, iFit Live compatibility(you need to buy a separate adapter), MP3 player support, 22 resistance levels (most brands offer only up to 20) and an incline ramp up to 40 degrees Good warranty since similarly priced Proform ellipticals are usually warranted for one year parts only but the 18.0RE is warranted for three years Additional controls located on the handlebars so you can’t change the resistance and ramp without reaching for the console 4 different stride lengths for you to choose from Angle of foot pedals are adjustable which can produce different workout results Weight of machine unknown Verdict: At the time of review (November, 2011), the Proform 18.0 RE is one of four Proform ellipticals that has a web retail price of. On the surface, all four ellipticals seem to be quite similar in features. But if you take a closer look, you’ll see that the Proform 18.0 RE is really superior in practically every area. For one, the Proform 18.0 RE is newly released for 2012 so it supports the new iFit Live technology (adapter sold separately.) Additionally, it is also above average in the ramp, resistance and preset workouts areas compared to the other three Proform ellipticals. In terms of engineering, the 18.0RE also features the best warranty out of the four which suggests that it’s probably more stable and reliable than the others. Unfortunately, you’ll have to compare the current prices of the ellipticals to determine whether this is the current best deal. We haven’t seen this elliptical go on sale yet so there may actually be other Proform or Nordictrack ellipticals that are more aggressively priced and thus offer more bang for the buck. But if you’re lucky and see this elliptical for or less, we would give this one a strong buy recommendation.
