Proform 790 T Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
One of the better efforts from Proform in a great looking package. A much better choice than the 590T.
This one isn't going to hold up to a runner but will be more than adequate for the average walker.
If you are looking to get on a regular walking regimen, the Proform 790 T would be a great choice. It's only $100 more than the 590 T, at $899, and it offers better quality, durability, cushioning, and power. It's not a spectacular model, but it's solid and inexpensive.
You'll get a fairly good walking area with this treadmill. The belt measures in at 20" x 55". While this is a solid 5" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt, it's still large enough to comfortably fit most users' stride.
The motor in this machine is quite impressive. Many models that cost over $2,000 have similar power producing capabilities. You can reach speeds of up to 12 mph with this treadmill, but the structure and drive system won't hold up well to running.
The cushioning system is also very good. ProShox Elite 2 Cushioning is used to reduce the impact of walking on your joints and back. You usually don't find a running surface this forgiving without paying $1,000 more than you would for this model.
Projected reliability is where this treadmill really shines. It has a longer life expectancy than some models that cost $2,000 more. It's not common to find this kind of durability in a sub-$1,000 treadmill. The quality of parts is also impressive in this price range.
The noise level is about average, which is nice at this price. You can find quieter models that cost a similar amount, but you'll have to do your research. We don't expect this treadmill to be loud enough to bother the average user.
The warranty on the Proform 790 T isn't very good. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts are covered for 2 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. Considering the low price tag, however, you can't really expect better coverage than this.
