Pay Attention to the Dimensions so you know if it'll fit you. Otherwise, it's perfect for the price!
I decided to buy a cheaper treadmill because I'd just be using it walking while I watched TV to add to my exercises periodically throughout the week. Everyone thought I was crazy since we have treadmills in the basement of our apartment building, but I said the heck with it. Well, it turns out I use it far more than I ever thought! It's small enough that it fits into my LR well. I run 5-6 miles per day, 6 days a week on it & it's still going strong. Granted, I did buy the 2-yr warranty so that puts my mind at ease with the fact that I'm using the crap out of it. I find I like to run more often and in the evenings, so having this in my own place makes it super convenient to do so! It's true it doesn't incline at all, but I didn't want that feature going into it. It has convenient buttons on both handle-bars for heart-rate monitor and speed adjustment so works well for left-handed people as much as right-handed.
The only minor issue I've had with it so far is I periodically have to manually adjust the belt. It's super easy to do. I was more put-off by the fact that I had to continually adjust it as soon as I got it more so than having to do it at all. Since that first week of adjustments, I've only had to do it a handful of times so I call that a win. It still makes some odd noises sometimes, but runs just fine for what I need it to.
I noticed before buying it that there were comments that this treadmill is ridiculously small. I can see where someone would say that (now, as far as it being only large enough for dogs... that's not true). I'm 5'3, fit, 120lbs (hopefully soon to be 110lb. with this bad boy) so it fits me just fine. However, if you are really overweight or tall, this wouldn't be the treadmill for you. The track is narrow and short. I have a short stride and it just about fits me so if you have a long stride from being taller, this wouldn't work for you.
I'll be more than satisfied if this treadmill lasts me for 2 years considering the amount of use I'm putting it through. It's obvious that you're not going to get a highly innovative, comfortable, state-of-the-art treadmill you're used to at the gym for this price, but if you want a simple machine to keep you active for little investment, I highly recommend it.
An added bonus: I throw a narrow cardboard box across the bars and set my laptop on it to use as a temporary treadmill desk when I'm working longer hours at home.

This item came in a timely fashion just as described ...
This item came in a timely fashion just as described. You have to keep in mind dimensions as the belt is narrow and the length is short. If you are used to treadmills with lots of walking/running and room to dance this is not the treadmill to get. I went from routine dancing on my old treadmill to walking a straight line...It serves its walking purpose but any slack and you will be sliding off back or walking on side of belt. Thank you for quick delivery and just as described!

Good treadmill for the price.
Good treadmill for the price (at the time of my purchase, it was a little less than two hundred with free shipping). I see it has gone up $10 since I bought it. IMO if it goes over two hundred, I would purchase a different treadmill that can withstand running on it. The treadmill is just as advertised. It's compact, which is exactly what I was looking for. It's not a running treadmill, but a fast walking treadmill, and for me, I'll be able to jog on it. My husband has a good stride when jogging and his stride is too long (wide?) for the length of the running belt. The running belt is 13 inches wide and 38 inches long. If you have a wide (long) stride, this probably isn't for you. I like everything about it, except the sound. For me, if it's not 'talking' to me or playing music, there is no reason for it to make noise. It does not have any feature that plays music, talks, or has a jack for mp3 players. The speakers are solely for the annoying beeping. With every incremental increase or decrease in speed, it makes a piercing beep. When turning off and on, it makes a series of loud beeps. For me, they are abnormally loud (compared to the soft beeps from the treadmills in the gym, for instance). I taped over the speakers, it dulled the sound a bit. The beeping noise would not deter me from purchasing this treadmill again, but it would be very nice if the audio was a feature I could turn off. It has two beverage holders which are generous in size. The media shelf for tablets, books, and phones is perfect. I have a touchscreen laptop and I can place it one the shelf without any noticeable vibration while I walk. It was easy to assemble. The display monitor is one unit (monitor plus handles). You do need two people to easy place it onto the treadmill. One person could do it, but it might be a bit tricky. It is bulky to store and not as easy as I thought it would be. When I remember to snap a photo of it stored upright, I'll update the review. All in all, I'm very pleased with it. I deducted one star due to the noisy beeping that doesn't have an option to turn it off.

Works wonderfully, runs wonderfully
Works wonderfully, runs wonderfully, perfectly small for my apartment, perfectly small for me since I'm 4'11 and my strides aren't long anyways. Very proud of this purchase!

Worst purchase I have ever made
DO NOT buy! Worst purchase I have ever made! Will not turn on (we set up everything correctly and our outlets do work). I've tried contacting the company SEVERAL times via email and phone and no response. Worst customer service experience I have ever went through. Very disappointed in this purchase.

While the product is as advertised and works flawlessly as best I can tell having only just got it it did come with the device rail having been broken off during shipping. I was able to super glue the piece back on I am not sure if this will hold up I may have to get epoxy for it. Just a disappointment to have to glue pieces back on right out of the box

First off, I spent weeks going over reviews for treadmills that were on the cheaper side. I wanted something to use to run on in the winter- because in Michigan it’s cold most of the time. I didn’t want to pay for a gym membership either.
Now most of what I wanted was a simple treadmill that I could run/jog on.
What I discovered in a lot of reviews was how narrow the tracks are, how hard it is to put together, and how tall you could be.
I decided on this treadmill because out of the rest of them, it had average scores. I realize I’m paying an average price so I can put up with the annoying parts.
Pros- cheap but works- even though the track is narrow it isn’t something you can’t get used too. I’m 5’11 and 195 pounds and I’m able to run comfortably on this.
Cons- it came with the right handle foam messed up. It’s somethint little, bit I feel like for the price I paid, nothing should be messed up.
It was hard and weird to put together. The instructions are vague and the washers they want you to use to screw in the screws are super weird so it takes a lot longer then it should. Over all though I’m yaooy with my purchase

A Good Purchase
First time purchasing, or even using a treadmill. First consideration was price, then do I need a lot of bells and whistles or just basic features, size limitations, and then reviews/research.
I was curious about the noise level of the treadmill, so a "non-professional" sound level check gave the following results (give or take 1 decibel or 2) at handlebars level.
0.5mph = 37db (30db soft whisper)
2.0mph = 45db (40db quiet office, library)
4.0mph = 52db (50db large office, refrigerator)
5.5mph = 57db (60db normal conversation, sewing machine)
7.5mph = 60db (70db TV audio, dishwasher)
I find the 800W treadmill quiet, and a very nice basic unit.
