Absolutely beautiful new display on this machine. If you have a BIG budget, it is well worth the price. It can be noisy in a confined space.
Very solid unit. It is hard to go wrong with this one if you have the cash. If you don't have the cash, it is worth begging and borrowing in order to get it. Arguably the best value in the Lifefitness lineup. If you are in love with the club units, the reliability of this unit is so compelling that you may have bought your last treadmill with this one. Very simple design that has been time tested and an industrial design that is beyond what most other factories have the ability to produce.
We are at the 5+ yr mark on a large commercial facility all LifeFitness equipment, cardio and weights. The durability of this equipment is very impressive considering how our patrons use and abuse the equipment. No, we have not been trouble free, I am the full time maintenance person and do all of the repairs and this is necessary when you have 80,000+ people a month using a rec-center. However considering the miles and hours put on the cardio equipment they are surprisingly low cost keeping them all running, and time between repairs is quite long. Most of my repairs are also small issues.
