BH P360 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
No value at all at $2400. This doesn't compare favorably against Sole's $1500 F80 much less any treadmill over $2000.
BH has lost their mind with the new P series. The prices of these will be like their other machines... real high MSRP that has no relation to the sales price.
The BH P360 is another massively overpriced treadmill. At $2,399, it would take a discount of at least $1,000 before we'd even consider this model, but there would still be better options at that price. BH must plan on selling it at a drastically reduced price, so they can claim they are giving customers a "discount."
The walking area is a decent size. The belt measures in at 20" x 50", which is 10" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. Larger users that are used to a more accommodating walking area may feel a bit cramped on this one.
A weak motor powers this machine. Several treadmills that sell for less than $1,000 offer greater power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 10 mph are attainable, so most users should have no problem challenging themselves.
A disappointing cushioning system comes on this model. Active Flex Shock Absorption is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. You can find treadmills selling as low as $799 that have similarly forgiving and durable running surfaces.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is horrible. The life expectancy is below average, which is crazy for a treadmill that costs more than $2,000. the quality of parts used is also is extremely low for this price range.
The warranty on the BH P360 is not 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. When you're paying this much for a treadmill, you should be getting a much better coverage. The sad part is this warranty matches the durability, or lack thereof.
