3.0 out of 5 stars Good and not so good in parts., 1 April 2016

This review is from: Scrabble Deluxe (Toy)
The letters do not fit as securely on the board as I expected. However I have a Scrabble de luxe board that has "elegant" on the face of the box and the letters fit on there perfectly. On that set the letters rubbed off in use. The new one is different in that respect with much better letters that I doubt will come off. Otherwise the game is fine. The letter racks are cheap in contrast but do the job I suppose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not with all the frills but worth the cost., 21 Mar. 2016

The instructions for assembly are not too easy to follow in line with many items made abroad, for example the toe caps are black and shown in the instructions as white. With some head scratching it eventually can be accomplished.
There is an adjustment to alter the slope of the track at the toe, remote from the handles. It is held in place by a steel pin which is prevented from falling out by a spring loaded ball. The spring shot the ball out the first time it was moved requiring a repair. Rough handling some where along its travels had caused a split in the rubber coating on the handles.
The vertical supports for the handles has an adjustment allowing a small movement forwards or backwards of the handles. This is intended to be locked in position by a screwed hand wheel pressing a plate against a fixed boss on the platform. The plate was some 5mm from the boss so was ineffective in locking. When bent so it was touching it was still poor by being too close to the pivot at the base for secure locking and was easily moved by a pull or push on the handles. However I found this mattered little in use since you are meant to be able to keep on the track without pulling on the handles, which would only go a little since the adjustment allowed is limited.
The machine is robust enough and when folded has a couple of small wheels allowing it to be fairly easy moved around. It is not very accurately made requiring the vertical supports to be bent inwards in order to fit the handles. Just heave them in till the handles fit. They are strong enough not to break off.
There are no controls on the handles, all controls being on the central console, unlike more expensive machines. This was no great hardship as the console is easy to operate with clear buttons for changes if required.
As stated it is a robust machine and despite the slight defect in the locking of the handle supports which did not matter a lot is worth the money it cost.
I have read a review complaining the belt slipped no matter how much it was tightened. I found no such problem with this machine and did not have to tighten the belt.
Remember you always get what you pay for and this machine will give you the same exercise as a much more expensive machine at much reduced cost. Twelve automatic 30 minute exercise programs are provided with differing rates and times throughout the 30 minutes duration.

After a lot of use nightly for a couple of years the letters get worn away. Could do wiith better system of marking the letters. The rest is fine.
