So far, so good. This thing weighs a ton. So you will probably need help getting it to the room where you plan on keeping it. It comes mostly complete, which is great, as I dread the words... Some assembly required.... But I was able to put it together very carefully in about an hour. A leading consumer rating magazine rated this very highly which gave me the confidence to pull the trigger. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of higher end machines, but I don't need those. I don't need a treadmill that will make my bed. I just want to get on it, and start running. It can go up to 12mph, which is plenty fast for me, it keeps track of my time and my distance. That's about all I need. Plus the cost if just right. It's not a cheapo machine, but it isn't through the roof either. I was comparing this machine and one that costs twice as much. So I figured, even if this machine doesn't last as long, I can still buy another one and come out no worse. Plus the machine will probably have upgrades by then. Two thumbs up.
