I did a lot of research before buying this treadmill. The horsepower is about the most you can get. The warranty is good, and includes in-home repair (although you probably won't need it). The belt is both long and wide enough to be completely comfortable. I'm 220 (for now) and the treadmill feels very, very stable under me and the belt doesn't pull or anything. Got 45 minutes in yesterday and even jogged on it with no problem at all.
The treadmill came with a sheet of paper with check marks where the factory tested the machine's proformance before shipping it to me. The box was in pretty bad shape, and I worried about it not working, but the treadmill was in great condition and wasn't damaged AT ALL. It is packed in a way that allows for the box to be somewhat beat up in transit.
Also, there is a place for a water bottle on each side of the console, as well as room to hold a book or Kindle so you can read while working out. The console is much, much...
I got this treadmill when they were selling it for $280 one day, then the next day it jumped to $350, so sweet! I 9 times out of 10, prefer to go outside to get my runs in. But with new baby addition and sometimes bad weather, I'm not always feeling hardcore enough to deal with the cold and rain, sometimes I want to be a creature of comfort.
I didn't want to drop a lot of dough, did my research, and found this one. I primarily went on fellow reviewers of amazon and other sites to make my decision and so far I'm pretty glad. I'll break it down
PROS --------- Came in really fast if you have prime (two days) Looks pretty sharp surprisingly for the price After some tweaking and tightening the belt runs smooth Digital display of time, distance, calories, speed Not terrible on the noise, pretty quiet for the most part Set up wasn't hard at all, one person, 45 minutes or less Pretty light, not crazy light like they advertise, but...
I'm breaking my review down in to 2 parts. The first is on delivery, ease of assembly and overall instructions. My 2nd review will follow in 2 days after I have used it. I purchased my treadmill on October 20th 2013 and it arrived on October 24th 2013. First of all YES the box will come to you like it has seen battle, but after reading the reviews I expected it. When I opened the box and carefully removed all the parts I found that it was NOT damaged at all, I did my research and discovered that Merit packs their equipment unlike no other, it was intact and without any damage. The instructions were precise and very easy to follow; I could tell that they were written in the good old USA. In fact the company is American based out of Wisconsin. It took me 1 hour to assemble and yes I'm mechanically inclined but I'm sure anyone can put this together. If you have a wire feeder (used to pull telephone and cable wires under carpet) that will make it easier to pull the lead wire...
