Smooth 9.65LC TV Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Essentially the 9.65 with the integrated TV. We usually suggest buying a separate TV and wall mount.
Unless you like having the integrated TV, save $200 and go with the 9.65LC. It is the same machine other than the screen.
The Smooth 9.65LC TV sells for $2,499. It's $200 more than the Smooth 9.65LC, but offers no additional quality. What you do get is an integrated TV. If you already have a TV you can position in front of your treadmill, this version doesn't make any sense for you.
The walking area on this model is very large. The belt measures in at 21" x 64". This is both 1" wider and 4" longer than the standard 20" x 60" waking belt found on most of today's treadmills. In the unlikely even that you feel that standard walking belts are too small, you may find this one to be more accommodating.
A fantastic motor comes in this machine. There are treadmills that cost over $6,000 that have similar power producing capabilities as this one. You can reach speeds of up to 12 mph, so even experienced runners should be able to challenge themselves.
You'll also get a very good cushioning system with this model. Im-pression Shock Absorption is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. This walking surface is as forgiving and durable as many of the treadmills that cost almost $4,000.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this model is okay. You can definitely find other treadmills that cost several hundred dollars less that have a longer life expectancy than this one, but you can just as easily find models that are more expensive that we don't expect to last as long. The quality of parts used is also fairly price appropriate.
The warranty on the Smooth 9.65LC TV is fantastic. Labor is covered for 2 years, while the motor, frame, and parts are all covered for life. This type of coverage shows that Smooth really believes in the durability of this treadmill.
