It would be interesting to compare the EFX 546 to another Precor model, the EFX 546hr V3. Like the EFX 546, the EFX 546hr V3 has 20 resistance levels. Both models can also accommodate exercisers who weigh as much as 350 pounds. The two Precor elliptical trainers also have a reading rack that users can take advantage of in storing their reading materials while they work out. But there are also a lot of differences between these two elliptical trainers. The EFX 546hr V3 is a lot lighter than the EFX 546 at 230 pounds compared to the 280 pounds of the latter. But the EFX 546hr V3 only has 8 workout programs compared to the nine of the EFX 546. Another difference is that the EFX 546 has a quick start option only in the manual mode, while the quick start button of the EFX 546hr is applicable to all workout modes. Still, the Precor EFX 546 is an elliptical trainer worth your investment because of its impressive features.
