It's a perfectly fine product although not suited for heavier, larger guys. It tends to ride up and clunk back down with every backward stroke which is distracting. I found the foot straps don't keep feet well secured and if you are wearing shoes, the display panel is partially obstructed/in the way. For its price range though, it's a reasonable purchase and does the job.
