After spending hours upon hours of researching... comparing specs & prices, I finally decided on this treadmill. As a mom in my early 50s with several health problems including fatty liver & pre-diabetes, this treadmill was a necessity. I also needed one that didn't cost a thousand bucks! But upon receiving it, because of its size & weight, I definitely needed my son to not only carry it to the basement for me, but also pull it out of the box & set it up. I was immediately pleased with its style & sturdiness. And, after using it several times, I'm also pleased with the actual length & width of the walking area. It has several digital options for walking & running combinations - although because of my health problems I simply use the treadmill for walking at different speeds that correspond to the music I'm playing LOL. But I very much appreciate the large digital display & the placement of the handles - as well as the cell phone holder & 2 cup holders. So, not only do I have no complaints, but I'm very thankful that I took the time to shop & compare, because this treadmill turned out to be just perfect for me. I highly recommend this model for anyone shopping in this price range.
