I bought this for my office (20 people), not sure if I would be the only one who uses it. It's very popular, we now have two, and we have a schedule filled up for both treadmills each day. Those who use it love it.
Well worth it, but big complaint on bluetooth Review by Mark

I've had the TR 5000 and DT 7 for about a week at a home office environment. Absolutely love it (aside from a small annoyance at the bottom of this review. The desk is one of the best quality constructions I've seen in a long time, I run two 30" monitors, one in portrait mode and I have enough space for both. There is also a phone, and small desktop scanner. Enough space left to open a legal size file folder, but going for two open at once is a bit of a stretch. At first I was noticing some shoulder tension and fatigue, but once I backed up from the desk that went away. After sustaining a back injury last year, I attributed it to my lack of movement, long hours sitting and my core muscles getting weaker as a result. I find I am far more focused and refreshed using the treadmill and desk and find it less fatiguing then sitting all day. The small shelf at the front is great for tape, stapler, small box for pencils and pens etc. An additional small drawer would be useful. Very happy with how quiet the unit is. You can hear a low fan if you have nothing else going on, but the sound of your steps landing on the treadmill is louder. For me it is my primary work space and adjusting to the typing only took about 1 to 2 hours, now I am back to full speed. I also hooked up a very sturdy "iPad arm" that suspends my iPad up beside my monitors. It has convinced me not to use a monitor arm with this desk (unless I can find one with motion dampening which I doubt). Monitors sitting on the desk on a stand are fine, but once elevated they tend to bounce due to transfer from the arms sitting on the wrist rests while typing. I've settled in around 1 as my speed setting and it is working well. The desk will go to a high of 4, which for me would verge on a slow jog, but I don't think I will ever use it that high. It is not designed for a "running" treadmill, but my wife has used it for a quick evening walk when it's been too cold to go outside. The two memory buttons for height are well worth having for the two of us working. The first week was about 7 hours a day of average use. Writing at the desk is still something that I am working on, but most of my work is typing, on the phone and reading, so no issues with those. My BIG COMPLAINT is the bluetooth function. It only syncs with a computer and only reports items via their subscription services. This is so Draconian that I won't even bother to try and state the numerous business and personal reasons as to why this is a bad idea. With the advancements on smart phones it should be a given that this syncs with the device of choice and reports the data. It takes a fabulous product and idea and leaves a bad taste in my mouth for such a minor build out point. I've talked to 3 other users and all three had the same complaint as me, the bluetooth needs to be something the company addresses and gets right. Look to the app community on apple and android and see what they are doing, the lessons there are well worth the effort. This wouldn't effect me buying the unit, but if I had two of like quality and company backing to buy from (which in my view right now I did not, the other features out way this inconvenience) the bluetooth "lack of capability" would sway my purchase. I have found that I can enter the step count manually into the new health app on the iPhone and thus combine it with my other data, but this is an unnecessary step while I'm staring at a bluetooth button on the treadmill. From the stand point of it fulfilling my need as an upright desk and gentle walking, an A plus. From the standpoint of tracking daily activity, fail.

I have had this for a week, and have used it every day. Day 1 for 2 hours at 1.5MPH, same the next day, then 3 hours at 1.5, then 3 hours at 2.0 for the next 2 days. I thought it would take longer to get use to typing and mousing. I'm not as proficient as I am at my sitting desk, but very close. I also talk on the phone while on it and the treadmill is quiet enough that the other person cannot hear it. The only thing I'm not able to do is write very well. I spend an hour on it before lunch, then 2 hours in the afternoon. It breaks up the sitting nicely. I might do more than 3 hours eventually, but others in my office are using it some too to see if they like it. So far it's been a huge hit. The automatic height adjustment on the desk was critical because I knew others would want to use it. It works very well. Also the desk top surface is much larger than I expected it to be. I guess true to life vs. the picture, but I still expected it to be smaller. I find that my monitor (on the arm that I bought separately) shakes a little - not enough to be a problem, but enough to be slightly annoying. I'm going to find a different solution where the monitor is not attached to the desk. At any rate, I find that I get involved in my work and suddenly I've walked 6 miles. Wow. I got this for my back so I wouldn't be sitting 10 hours a day, but the added plus of calorie burn is a great additional benefit. I still do my hour on the treadmill at home in the morning before I come to the office. So far the time on the desk treadmill hasn't been "too much". I just love this.
