This is my first treadmill and proved to be a good purchase.
It has a large display with easy to see orange characters and the information alternates to show your progress.
The pre-programmed aerobic workout buttons are convenient and give me an excellent workout by a simple press of a button.
The sound system is impressive and gives my MP3 player a big stereo sound.
When I'm running, the treadmill gives a little because of the cushioning and my knees love every minute of it.
I set it up in my garage and used a cushioning pad and the machine feels solid and sure-footed and is really quiet.
I marked it down half a star because a bolt was missing from the right hand rail. A call to ProForm got me a replacement hand rail in 2 days, so I'm very impressed with their customer service.
This is an excellent treadmill.
I really really like this treadmill.
First of all, I bought it direct and paid in full. It was on sale, so the price was greatly reduced.
Also, the shipping was free which was another bonus since I really didn't want to pay for that lol.
Anyhow, I put it together myself and it wasn't difficult at all.
I love the speaker on it. Sometimes I plug in my ipod and turn the volume up. The sound quality is great.
As for the treadmill, the width and length of it are great for my 5'11" frame. The programs are great and effective (trust, you will feel the burn).
The display is also great. I sometimes cover up the time with a towel and just look at the distance in the middle. It really helps me to visualize myself on a track.
Overall I highly recommend this treadmill. I only took off half a star because I don't like the way it sticks out when you put the bottom up. I wish it would just stick straight up instead of out. However, I knew that going in..so..yeah.
Great product, and I would buy another ProForm product in a minute. Very satisfied customer.
