Livestrong T1x by Matrix Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Great new treadmill for Livestrong. Solid AC drive machine puts commercial parts into a home unit.
If you want to get a treadmill that could possibly last the rest of your life, this is the one!
The Livestrong T1x by Matrix is a high quality treadmill that is extremely durable. Even at $5,195, you're getting a decent deal because it's almost a commercial quality unit. It was the 3rd runner up for our Best Buy award in the $4,000 and up price range.
The walking area is good. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which is the standard belt size. This should provide plenty of room for larger users to comfortably run on.
The motor in this machine is great. There is not a single model that can surpass its power producing capabilities. Only two treadmills that are priced below $6,000 have a motor that is similar to this one.
The cushioning system is good. The Ultimate Deck cushioning system is used to reduce some of the impact running has on your joints and back. Having a running surface that is less forgiving than this one would be somewhat disappointing at this price. While not many companies offer better than this, there are some $2,000 models that use similar impact reducing technology.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this is one of the best you'll find. There are very few treadmills that have a longer life expectancy than this one. The quality of parts used is hard to beat, at any price.
The noise levels during operation are really good, as well. It's not easy to find a machine that is as quiet as this one. If this is a major concern for you, you should definitely consider this model.
The warranty is probably the least impressive part of the Livestrong T1x by Matrix. The parts, labor, and drive motor are covered for 3 years. The frame is only covered for 7 years. We were surprised not to see lifetime coverage on the frame, especially considering how durable this treadmill is.
