We have one of the Schwinn ones, purchased from Amazon, and it works pretty well. The only problem is the "fit". It's as if it's made for taller people.
We both have to lean a bit forward to use the arm thingies, and it's kind of a strain on our backs. Apparently this is a common problem with ellipticals.
So I'd say, if you are of somewhat short stature (say, 5'5" or under), if you can, take your elliptical for a test drive. That is, seek one out at a used equipment store or local gym, if you can.
