Horizon elliptical machine

Horizon E700 Elliptical Trainer

Price: $1,599.99

Bottom Line: The E700, 800 and 900 series ellipticals are built with a permanent magnetic braking system which has proven to be unreliable. In addition, this system adjusts resistance extremely slowly which can be frustrating for users accustomed to commercial-grade machines.
