How good is (insert your favorite exer-gadget shown on TV)?

The fitness industry changes all the time, and along with these changes come trends and fads in the types of exercise people prefer to do and the machines and equipment they use to do it. Some of these items are good, and some are junk.

As pointed out by Ken (soulhunt@pobox.com), nobody is able to test every piece of equipment on the market. Before you buy any new gadget, ask the experienced fitness folks in the misc.fitness.aerobic newsgroup for their opinions, and also ask yourself the following questions.

If you are still convinced that the device is for you, and you buy it, please write a review in misc.fitness.aerobic so others can learn from your experience.
