Proform 10.0CE or Proform 410CE?
~~Side-By-Side Elliptical Comparison Review~~
Stride Length: In this category, the Proform 10.0CE beats the Proform 410CE with its adjustable stride length of 16” to 20”. On the other hand, the 410CE only has a fixed stride length of 18”.
Resistance Levels: In terms of resistance levels, the 410CE beats its counterpart as it offers 20 settings while the 10.0CE only has 18.
Max Ramp: In this category, like most elliptical machines today, the two are tied as they both don’t have an incline/ramp feature.
Built In Programs: When it comes to the built-in programs, the Proform 10.0CE edges out the Proform 410CE with its 18 preset programs. The latter has 16.
Notable Features: In the bells and whistles category, the Proform 410CE slightly beats the Proform 10.0CE. Both have a couple of features that are identical such as the Intermix Acoustics 2.0 sound system and a SpaceSaver folding feature.
The edge of the 410CE over the 10.0CE would be the enhancement on the foot pedals and the iFit compatibility and design they are equipped with. What’s more, it includes the Jillian Michaels 8-week workout card.
Parts Warranty: When it comes to the parts warranty, the two are tied with a one year offer each which is the standard in the market today.
Labor Warranty: It is a tie between the two models as they both offer one year labor warranty each. Take advantage of these as labor costs can get pretty expensive these days.
Machine Weight: The machine weight of both models is unknown which makes them tied in this category.
Machine User Weight Capacity: The Proform 410CE claims to be able to accommodate users who weight up to 300 lbs while the Proform 10.0CE can accommodate those who weigh up to 275 lbs. However, since the two did not indicate their actual machine weight, these figures cannot be verified. For safety purposes, there should only be a 100-lb difference between the actual machine weight and max user weight capacity.
Money Back Guarantee: It is a tie between the two in the money back guarantee category as they both offer 30 days each.
Conclusion:At the time of the comparison review, there’s a $200 price difference between the two. The question is whether it is worth it.
For those who intend to use an elliptical in a household that has multiple users, the 10.0CE is the better choice because of its adjustable stride length. If you want more variety in your programs and a better labor warranty based on prices, you should go with the 10.0CE.
If you want to have more intensity in your workouts, you should go with the 410CE as it has a greater number of resistance levels. It also has an iFit workout card, a more comfy foot pedals and supposedly has a heavier user weight capacity.
Although pricier than its counterpart, the 410CE seems to be the best choice. However, it still depends on your personal preference and needs whether or not you should choose one over the other.
