Editor's Note: It is our policy of intentionally erring on the side of caution concerning reliability ratings so a key component in the rating still will be a heavy factor in the final score and these ratings were given with caution in mind. Once an treadmill wins a best buy in its price range, it is ineligible for a best buy rating in another category.
