Nautilus E916 Elliptical
The Nautilus Commercial Series E916 is a good-looking and well-built machine with excellent ergonomics. Nonetheless, its MSRP is surprisingly high. Unless the machine is on sale, it would probably be better to invest in a Precor or other high-end elliptical.

Elliptical Misses: Where Nautilus Went Wrong

Overall Rating for the Nautilus E914 Elliptical
The E914 is an attractive silver and black elliptical with some great workout features. Articulating pedals, a good stride, and wireless telemetry are some draws. Nonetheless, this machine’s high MSRP doesn’t seem justified. Precor, Tunturi, and Yowza are some other high-end brands to consider.
