Good Points Features 24 digital resistance levels which is unusual because we hardly ever see ellipticals come with more than 20 total resistance levels Though the Audiostrider 990 Pro does not include the iFit Live module (but is compatible), it makes up for it by including 30 built in workout applications which should be sufficient to keep you motivated at least in the beginning A lot of ellipticals have fixed strides but this elliptical has four different strides from 20” all the way up to 23” About half of all ellipticals on the market today does not feature an incline option but this one goes from 15 to 40 degrees Both the arm handles and the foot pedals are enhanced compared to the 2011 version with shortcut buttons on the handles and pedals that are adjustable Bad Points Despite the name, the Audiostrider 990 Pro is not the only elliptical from Nordictrack that supports audio (i.e MP3). In fact, most ellipticals from Proform and Nordictrack do support audio so the name is probably something that was retained for 2012 as the Audiostrider series has been around for some time now The 2012 version did not upgrade its warranty unfortunately which always raises suspicions in regards to its quality and reliability The unknown product weight adds to our suspicious to just how stable really is the 2012 Audiostrider 990 Pro Verdict If you’ve been contemplating between the 2011 and the newest 2012 version of the Nordictrack Audio Strider 990 Pro elliptical, there’s no contest. The newest version is better in almost every area. But is it necessarily a good buy? The Audiostrider 990 Pro is not perfect but depending on your needs, there may be better choices. One of the main gripes we have with this elliptical is the questionable reliability of the product. Not to say it will break down but when you’re buying something on the internet, you want to have at least some form of protection in case something goes wrong so the short warranty is something we would consider if we were the buyers.
