Looking for the "Perfect" Elliptical

Help me find an elliptical machine for a person who is between 5'1" and 5'4", that will take fairly heavy use by one person, and that doesn't cost a fortune.

I am looking to buy an elliptical machine for someone who runs 4 - 5 miles every day on an elliptical. The machine has to hold up to steady use. It also has to work for someone who is not very tall. One of the complaints about a lot of these machines is that short people really can't use them. The machine can't cost a fortune - something in the $350 - $450 price range would be ideal. I would go $200 more for the right machine. I need something I can ship through Amazon prime or that would be delivered to their door.
It’s a gift: I know nothing about ellipticals.
I have read a lot of product reviews and they are all over the map. What would you recommend, and why?
