In January 2005 I purchased an Octane Q45e. I shopped for a long time before I decided on this machine. I was looking for a quality elliptical from a company that would stand behind their product if there were any problems. I love this machine and use it every day. It provides a great workout for both my husband and myself. As with anything electronic, there have been a few bugs but Octane has worked with me to fix them, even beyond the warranty period. I recommend Octane to anyone looking for a good quality elliptical and a reputable company to buy from.
