We have railed for years about the TV models but if you can get a TV model for $100 over the regular version and can still use the treadmill if the TV goes out (you don't have to buy the expensive repair part TV to make it work like the old models), you have a real winner if this is what turns you on. Plus it is a good treadmill to boot. The heart rate handgrips are worthless.
