To start off the unit looks good compared to other Weslo treadmill. The running deck is just right considering it’s price, you can really see that it’s design for light running. The build is sturdy considering it’s price, and the setup is easy, a person can set it up in just under an hour. The display has a nice blue screen though it’s not that bright. There are 6 preset fitness program to give variation in you workout and the Quickspeed is a nice feature if you want to quickly go for more faster run. There are two holder where you can place your drinking bottle or your gadget.The small motor might be that powerful but on the upside it is a very quiet motor. The price is the biggest upside, for just under $300 you can get a motorized treadmill at the comfort of you own home.
The Motor is on the low side, rated as 2.25HP but it’s actually 1.5 continuous impulse motor, is good enough for light workout but for if you are in need for a more intense workout this not for you. Too bad the weight limit at 250lbs. and it might be lower than that, around 200lbs. Then there’s the reliability, it’s not the best but it varies, based on a lot of user reviews they don’t have a problem with it and it might be because they are using it like what we mentioned, light running. There are some negatives and that’s understandable for a sub $300 treadmill, who’s trying to do more than it’s made for. Not a lot of fancy features but understandable for it’s price.
The price might be the lowest you can find in this category so you shouldn’t expect the performance of a $500+ worth of equipment instead decide based on your assessment how this fits your need versus it’s price. The limitation is obvious but for it’s price won’t find any better in the market, unless you can settle for the non-motorized units. Despite low “Expert” review there’s a lot of good user reviews from most retail site, that shows that this product perform better than you expected like what most post says. This is for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money on a piece of fitness equipment, and for those who need a treadmill for light walking specially for grandma and grandpa’s who need this to keep their self in shape. Before buying you should settle on what you really need and your budget, then set the proper expectation.
