If you just want to best overall elliptical in the price category, with the perfect combination of features and capabilities, definitely go with the Sole E95. It's been a top pick and a best seller for many years now, and you can't go wrong with a Sole elliptical.
If you want more bells and whistles, and want a more open adjustable stride, then look at the NordicTrack FS7i. It's not as durable as the E95, but there are more entertaining/motivating features built in.
The Horizon Elite E9 is somewhere in the middle of the Sole E95 and FS7i, kind of a mixture of the construction and the extras. And the ProForm is very much like the NordicTrack with some slight differences feature wise.
