    Great Treadmill for the Price

    Posted

    I've only had this for a few days now but so far its great for the price. The hardest part of the assembly was getting it out of the box. After that, it only took about 15 minutes to put together. A few bolts and screws and thats it. The display it comes with has pretty much everything you need. The pulse monitor is your typical "hand sensor" type which isn't 100% accurate, but gives you a good idea of your current heart rate. The pre-programed workouts are pretty good, and you can adjust the speed and incline as you go and still stay within the workout you chose. The deck is big enough where you don't have to worry about falling off, but small enough where it doesn't take up the whole room. The cup holders are nice, but not the best fit for an ipod like it claims. There are 2 reasons I didn't rate this a 5 out of 5. The first one is when I first put the safety key in place the treadmill wouldn't work, but it also didn't indicate the key wasn't in the exact right spot. It took me a few minutes to realized you have to place the key as far down in the hole as it will go. The other negative is when you fold it, it doesn't fold up enough to really save much room. Not a big deal for me but if you think your going to fold it up and stick it in the corner, you won't.

    Good product, assembly touchy

    First off, I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly the treadmill arrived - 3.5 days from purchase to delivery for a huge and incredibly heavy package. Assembly seemed simple enough, but some manufacturing issues hampered my progress. The instructions are very well-written and parts are clearly labeled--even packaged in numbered bags that correspond with the directions. Unfortunately, two holes were drilled wrong, so I had to make due. That added nearly a half hour to what should have been a 30-minute assembly. Once assembled, the treadmill works like a dream. My sensitive knees really appreciate the cushioning under the wide belt. The instrument panel is nicely laid out, easy to understand, and has a rack that's not only great for a book, but perfectly holds my iPad (part of the reason I bought it!) Aside from the assembly issue, this is a great treadmill for the money. It has a good motor and the basic features a good treadmill needs, plus a heart rate monitor, and it can be folded up for vacuuming or clearing a little extra space.

    Delivery time was outstanding. The delivery company calls to set up a day & time and then gave me a half hour call-ahead so I could be home when they got there. Assembly was not bad at all. Everything is clearly labeled and instructions are well explained. I put this together on my own with very little problem. I love the programs on this tread mill. They may not be as sophisticated as some of the more expensive models, but they are just fine for what I want the machine to accomplish. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

    Fast delivery. Excellent packaging. Driver brought it inside my house where I wanted to set it up. Setting up was pretty easy. It took me and my friend around 15-20 minutes. Been using it for more than two weeks now. I am pretty happy with its performance so far. I feel very comfortable on this. I use it only for brisk walking. The buttons on the front panel are very intuitive and straight forward. I am giving it a 5 star since I think I am geting exactly what I was expecting out of this. Hope it will not let me down in future. If it does, I will come back here and update this review.

    Putting it together is not easy, the screws are not described clearly. It is too heavy to move by one self. Why can't they just say "we will put it together for $50" or something like that. It is ridiculous how heavy it is.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
