I didn't know there were different kinds! I don't think I'd like the second one- with the block that you are up against???
I like the first one.

id be tempted to say ebay it....
i got a brand new one much like the Carl Lewis one for £29 plus postage....
fair enough it isnt a brand name, but it certainly works....
is still going strong a year later....
just my two cents....

I'd suggest trying them out first. if you can go to a store that carries these brands and try them out before buying that would be great. I've personally tried several ellipticals before finally settling on one, some of them were really hard on the knees others were smooth.. give em a try if you can

I have an IronMan elliptical and I love it. It was around $800 and well worth it. I did go to the store and get on them just because I had experienced some of the less expensive or knock-offs and had some issues with the angle of the foot pads. On one machine, it seemed like my toes were pointed down, like I was running down-hill constantly and I hated it!!!!!! Good luck!!

I have this one. It certainly works fine. And the block is soft so it's not hurting or anything.
Anyways, it's abit hard on your feet if you plan to walk long (1 hour +). It's not hurting at all, but you'll feel a lil numb. But anyways, it's worth if you want to buy it ^^ I'm still using it almost everyday ^^
btw, i can't see the 1st link so i can't comment anything on that
