So far, so good.

I originally got this for my husband, but figured I could use it, too. My primary criterion in shopping around were durability and QUIET. We have two kids and wanted to put this in the room next to their bedroom for use during nap. It works like a charm. The kids can sleep, and we can get a good work out. The noise is minimal, and what there is is just a sustained wooshing sound, which doesn't disrupt the kids sleep (it is louder downstairs actually, due to the hardwood floor). I like the response at different speeds, it really seems to mimic real road riding pretty well other than positioning for hill climbing, of course.

We opted not to go with the more expensive model that allows for some rocking motion to simulate road riding better. This unit is great for the price, but I might have liked to go for the more expensive unit.
