I have had one of these for about 2 months and it is one of the best things I have ever bought.
I spent about 3 months researching crosstrainers because I have had bad experiences with them in the past. I looked at machines varying in price from £600 - £2,500 and this is, in my opinion, both the best quality and the best value machine available.
The frame is sturdy and strong and coated in vinyl so it won't corrode. The action has remained smooth and silent. No squeaking or vibration after daily use for the last 2 months.
The action is smooth and easy, the incline has a great range and so does the resistance. The machine is also quite slim and takes up a relatively small amount of space. It is also prety much silent. Mine is on the first floor and the people in the flat downstairs are not disturbed by it.
If I were to change anything about it, the only things I would change are the programs. Firstly the length of the intervals in the interval programs is affected by the overall length of the training session. That's a shame because when the intervals are beyond a certain size the effect of interval training is diminished. I would prefer Reebok to set all interals to 2 minutes regardless of overall duration.
However, since there are buttons on the handles to change both incline and resistance this is easily overcome. I simply use the manual programme and change the settings myself during the workout.
The other change I would make would be to add an intense interval workout. 4 minutes warm-up and then 30 seconds high-intensity (flat out) followed by 1 1/2 minutes lower intensity (recovery), alternating the high/low intensity pairs at least 8 times until the finish. That way you can get a full-on workout in a short amount of time (8 alternations would mean a total workout time of 20 minutes).
This is, once again, a minor quibble though. The buttons on the handles allow you to do this yourself, though perhaps not as effectively or reliably as if it was programmed in.
The other thing is that the delivery men also install the machine. They arrived when they said they would and were quick, polite and efficient.
Well done Reebok.
