BH P350 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
If you buy this one for $1900 I have some beachfront property in Arizona that you might be interested in.
Crazy-high MSRP makes you forget that this is a decent machine and would be well worth $1000.
The BH350 is a decent machine, but at $1,899, it is massively overpriced. Take about $900 off the price, and this would be a good option. BH has a tendency give large MSRPs to treadmills that don't deserve it, and this one is no different. Get a major discount, or get a different model.
The walking area is a decent size. The belt measures in at 20" x 50", which is a good 10" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. Larger users who are used to the more accommodating belt sizes may find this one to be a bit cramped.
A weak motor powers this machine. You could take $1,000 of this price of this treadmill and still find cheaper options with greater power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 10 mph are attainable, so most users should have no problem challenging themselves.
An unimpressive cushioning system comes on this model. Active Flex Shock Absorption is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. Several treadmills selling for less than $1,000 have much more forgiving or durable running surfaces.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is truly awful. If you took $1,100 of its current price, then the life expectancy would be appropriate. The quality of parts used is also very low for a treadmill that costs as much as this one does.
The warranty on the BH P350 isn't very good. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts are covered for 3 years, the motor is covered for 15 years, and the frame is covered for life. You would hope that when a company expects you to make such a large investment in their treadmill that they would stand behind it, but that isn't the case with this model.
