I've had this treadmill for about eight months now. I run and walk on it just about every day. It works very well. It's sturdy and can take a good pounding as I'm about 200 pounds.. One of the best features is the lifetime warranty on the frame. I've broken two treadmills previously and if was impossible to get fixed. I would recommend this treadmill, .Please note that this treadmill is very heavy and it took myself and my neighbor to get it into the house. Performance It's a very powerful motor and extremely quiet. It does what you would expect a top notch home treadmill to do. Comfort It's as comfortable as any I've ever used including the ones at the gym. It's got a nice wide belt to run on. twenty inches or so. Ease of Use Read the manual. It's got eight programs for different settings like losing weight, heart monitoring and other things. Durability It's heavy and is durable with a lifetime warranty on the frame. Design The design is fine. It's easy to adjust the incline and it does fold down but it's a bit too heavy to move from room to room. I would find a nice place for it and leave it.
