Good points: lots of workout programs stride length range is good incline ramp range (10 to 30 degrees) is greater than most though it’s one of the higher priced models that Proform is selling, its quality is probably not as good as the other brands Comments: The Proform 890E is a new 2010 model. Compared to the 790E, the 890 E offers slight improvements in the ramp and stride length and its MSRP is which is surprisingly, less than the 790E. At the time of review, this elliptical is not on sale but we would think that it could sell for as little as which would make a pretty good, and probably one of the best deals depending on the price of the other ellipticals.

Good points: More than sufficient motor for the treadbelt it has to power A fair number of built in workout apps MSRP of is ridiculously high Warranty slightly better than the Performance 400 and 600 but nothing to brag about Comments: The Proform Performance 890E is a slightly superior treadmill to the Proform Performance 400 and 600. The upgrades include a slightly longer parts warranty, a much better motor, slightly longer treadbelt and more built in workout programs. It shares the same problems as its little brothers in that it doesn’t come with the iFit Live modules, it only supports it. A lackluster warranty of 3 years parts and 1 year labor is acceptable but not impressive if you can get this treadmill for which is what we expect it to sell for at some point based on its specs. Please don’t buy at the because it’s a blatant lame deal.
