    I have the T1680 and its really good, I suppose its down to how much and how detailed you want your training to be, I am working to a program so all the info for it is in the computer, watts, HR etc. Plus I have the option to race my mates on it which can cut the boredom although I didnt go for the VR additions yet...........

    I would recommend it.

    i have the t1680 - just finished using it for a light rehab session in fact.

    very happy with it - the electronic control/display makes it handy for doing interval sesssion. I'm not sure how well calibrated the power output display is but for relative comparison it does the job.

    its worth noting that a garmin hrm will not work with the unit. you need an uncoded polar one.

    the ability to upgrade with a vr unit might be handy but i'm not sure i would ever bother.

    a garmin unit with a cadence and heart rate sensor combined with the t1810 would pretty much do the same thing if you want to save a bit of money. can't comment as to the general quality of this tacx unit though.

    Am I correct in my assumtion that the slope/resistance is varied using the electronic control? Can it be programmed?

    you cannot put in pre programmed steps. each variation in resistance requires you to press -> set / arrow x increments / mode. takes only a split second which isn't an issue unless you are doing 10 second intervals and hammering it.
