Solid treadmill with full features. Some parts are cheaper to keep it under $1,000 but most people wouldn't notice those.
Good machine for the money but if you are a serious user, pay extra to move up in the NordicTrack lineup. With that said, this is not a bad machine for a walker. The problem is that these machines make such an imposing presence on the store sales floor that people believe these are just a bit below the club models and nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, we had a local gym a few years ago buy 10 models similar to this one for their treadmill lineup and after pouring money into the machines, they finally decided they needed to buy better quality units.
