I don't know the official scientific answer, but I was told by the treadmill salesperson that there is not a significant difference in the quality of workout. So, how quickly you see results is gonna depends on the work you put in.

Other things to consider:
-if you have any interest in running outdoors or running in races, you should get a treadmill because, while the cardio workout is the same, the elliptical doesn't prepare your muscles and joints for that type of movement.

-otherwise, an elliptical is probably a better choice. It puts less shock on your joints, which ultimately lets you workout longer and harder.

Again, I'm not an expert, and I'm sure there are people who will tell you different things.

But I have an elliptical and I have loved it.
