This is actually my Mom's machine, but I use it more then her. (If I could only figure out how to sneak it out of her house and into mine.) I enjoy using this machine because of the ease of use. Step on the thing and away you go. The functions are easily understandable and it's nice to know how far you've gone, the calories burned and the rate your heart is beating to get to that point. It's low impact to the knees because you don't have to lift your legs just swing them back and forth as if you were skiing.

heart rate monitor calories burned distance traveled easy storage low impact to body doesn't tire me out as fast as some other equipment I've tried
little non skid feet fell off batteries go dead in monitor too quickly developed a slight squeak the monitor system is in the hand holds and they seem to be a tad fussy - if not holding on just right the monitor doesn't work
