"Best Buys"

 

Proform 10.0 CEProform 10.0 CE elliptical machine

Price: $599

Bottom Line:The Proform 10.0 CE elliptical trainer brings is an entry level rear drive elliptical trainer. With an adjustable 16-20" stride length, large feature set, and 20 digital resistance levels it offers the user a competitive feature package. However, as we have seen with other Proform products, poor quality construction and poor usability make the 10.0CE difficult to justify on the feature set alone.

Thoughts:The 10.0 CE elliptical trainer from Proform is the base model rear drive machine for the company. The unit allows for up to a 275lb user, has an adjustable stride, ifit live integration, and a fairly average footprint. We found the silent magnetic resistance system to work decently well; however, the plastic arms had quite a few odd noises coming from them. We also found the plastics in general on this unit felt flimsy. The display layout is basic but serviceable. The warranty is disappointing as it only offers a limited 1year parts and labor warranty. While this unit may get the job done for very light use, we would recommend looking toward other manufactures as this entry level 10.0 CE is not the best value for your money.
