I actually got this treadmill for free through a work promotion. I had 3 I could choose from, and I did a little looking online for reviews before I picked. I am so glad that I ended up picking this one! With some treadmills the belt is not long or wide enough and you feel like you are going to fall off. I don't have that problem with this treadmill at all. It doesn't vibrate when I run on it and despite what some of the reviews I read indicated, it is very quiet. The screen is pretty user friendly, but I think there are a few too many options for setting up personal programs. For me it just gets confusing and I like to do it manually. But if you are into that sort of thing you will have PLENTY to choose from. I love the fact that there are cup holders, and a bar on front to hold on to as well as the sides. I know I got it for free but it is as good as any treadmill I have ever used in the gym, I would be happy to pay for it. Durability It is already making a squeaking sound and I had to have two pieces replaced already. The pieces were under warranty but I had to replace them myself. My parents have a treadmill that is not nearly as nice and they haven't had any problems in 5 years. I have only had mine for a little over a year.
