Proform 600ZNE or Proform 410CE?
~~Side-By-Side Elliptical Comparison Review~~
Stride Length: In this first category, the two models are tied as they both have a fixed 18” stride length. It should be noted that other entry level models may likely have shorter stride length which makes these two adequate enough for many users.
Resistance Levels: When it comes to the levels of resistance, the Proform 410CE wins with 20 while its counterpart, the Proform 600ZNE only has 14.
Max Ramp: The 600ZNE clearly wins this round as it has a 30% manual incline while the 410CE doesn’t even have this feature.
Built In Programs: In this category, the Proform 600ZNE beats the 410CE with an 18 to 16 advantage. It should be noted that the losing model’s offer is still considered to be above average as most models belonging in the same price range only offer 11 or less.
Notable Features: The Proform 600ZNE is equipped with a cooling fan and the 410CE does not but the latter has better foot pedals which are oversized and have great cushioning. Plus, you can also adjust it according to your own comfort preference.
What’s more, the 410CE offers the iFit workout card module which has a 9-week training program card. Although the workout card if not like the iFit Live, it can still add more quality workout to your own program and you don’t even have to be connected to the internet to be able to do so. On the other hand, the 600ZNE is compatible with iFit Live but you still need to purchase the module separately.
In the end, the 410CE is the better choice between the two.
Parts Warranty: In this category, the two models are tied as they both offer 1 year deals when it comes to free parts warranty.
Labor Warranty: In the labor warranty category, the two models are tied again as they both offer 1-year deals. You should take advantage of these as labor costs can get pretty expensive.
Machine Weight: Both Proform models did not indicate their actual machine weight which is disappointing since one factor of choosing a good elliptical machine is that the heavier it is, the more stable it is.
Machine User Weight Capacity: In this category, the 410CE beats the 600ZNE with its 300-lb to 25-lb advantage. However, since both models did not indicate their actual machine weight, these cannot be verified. So for your safety, you must not exceed the 100-lb difference between the machine weight and the user weight.
Money Back Guarantee: In terms of money back guarantee, the two models are tied with 30-day offers. This means that you can easily return the product if you are not happy with the performance of the machine, given that it is within the given period.
Conclusion: At the time of the comparison review, the two models are sold at $799. The 410CE is the newer model between the two and it can be seen in the better quality of foot pedals and also the workout card module. On the other hand, the Proform 600ZNE is equipped with a cooling fan and an incline feature.
So it all comes down to your personal preference and since both are sold at the same price, you should choose the model that you think would better suit your needs as well as the overall quality of the features and service. It should be noted though the both are equally quality equipment.
