BH T7 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
This one is an enigma in the lineup. We cannot figure out why this model was needed in the lineup other than to fill a price point.
If you like this one go with another model in the BH lineup.
The BH T7 doesn't make a lot of sense. From a quality standpoint, it's the same as the T6 Sport and T6 Pro, but at $2,899, it's $500 and $300 more expensive, respectively. The cheaper models already need a discount to make them worth considering, so that should give you an idea of how overpriced this one is.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which has become the standard size walking belt for today's treadmills. This should provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A nice motor powers this machine, but you can find models selling for $2,000 that have significantly greater power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A disappointing cushioning system comes on this model. Active Flex Suspension is used along with an Ortho Cushion walking belt to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. Orthopedic belts are hard on a treadmill's components, and you can find treadmills with more forgiving and durable running surfaces at significantly lower prices.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is bad. You could spend less than $2,000 and get a treadmills with a longer life expectancy. The quality of parts used is also very low considering the high cost.
The warranty on the BH T7 is good. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 10 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. The costs BH will incur by replacing parts covered under their warranty is more than offset by the $2,899 price tag. While the coverage is nice, it doesn't make up for the lack of quality.
