Conclusion: Both ellipticals belong in the budget category. The positive thing about these is that they are cheap but their quality is questionable.
These days, manufacturers try to make their products as cheap as possible as this can be a big selling point to many people. However, it causes them to hold back in terms of quality and durability.
When you compare the two models, the E220 has more features and offer longer parts and labor warranty. However, it results to an additional $100. You get extra test programs for body and heart rate recovery plus a built-in sound system.
However, if you really are in a budget, you can forego the extra $100 and go with the E200. There’s always the 30-day money back guarantee if you are not sure.
