SportsArt 621 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
A great machine with a jaw-dropping price. Although we would consider their low-end units, their high-end treads simply don't make sense.
A high quality unit with a high quality price. Hard to justify when you consider what else is on the market.
The SportsArt T621 is a quality treadmill. At $4,199, the high price is going to seriously outweighing the quality and durability. You'd probably be better off going with a Precor in this price range because the attention to detail is an improvement. If you can get a discount, however, this model is absolutely worth considering.
The walking area is quite large. The belt measures in at 22" x 61", which is 2" wider and 1" longer than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. Larger users, or those who plan on running on this model at full speed, will enjoy the extra room.
A disappointing motor powers this machine. You can find treadmills with similar power producing capabilities selling for $3,000 less than this one. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A good cushioning system comes on this model. MyFlex cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. There are several treadmills in this price range that have less forgiving and durable running surfaces.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is okay. There are many treadmills in this price range that have a longer life expectancy. The quality of parts used is also mediocre considering the cost.
The warranty on the SportsArt T621 is good. Labor is covered for 1 year, electronics are covered for 5 years, parts are covered for 10 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. This isn't exactly an impressive warranty at this price, but it's not bad, either.
