Once again, like on the Zi model, you have a terribly short warranty considering the price of the treadmill, but if you maintain it you probably won't need the warranty. I would do without the TV but it is not essential for this model to operate so if you love the idea of the TV or if they discount it, knock yourself out!
The Elite XT is a serious looking treadmill and can be used seriously. A very close cousin to the Zi model, this one has everything that someone could want in a high value treadmill. As with all treadmills, there are compromises in order to hold a price point but the compromises are hard to find on this unit.
