True PS100 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The Best Buy winner in its price range. If you are having to stretch to buy a True, the PS100 is the first model I would buy personally.
The PS100 won't leave you wanting more. This is an excellent treadmill and with the price increase in the PS300, the PS100 makes more sense this year.
This is a well-built treadmill using good parts for $2,899. We gave it our Best Buy award for treadmills in the $2,500-$2,999 range. If this is the amount you want to spend, we recommend taking a good look at this model.
The size of the walking belt on this treadmill is one of the best on the market. The 22" x 60" surface area is enough to accommodate those who need a wider area in which to run. You're rarely going to find a bigger walking surface without spending more than $4,000. It is possible to find a similar size belt on cheaper models, such as the Sole F80 for $1,500, but the quality of the belt is not as good.
The motor is pretty good. It generates a decent amount of power, and it will certainly be enough for runners to train with. Still, there are several models sold at a cheaper price point that will use a motor that is of a similar quality. It's nothing to be upset about, but it's certainly not a bragging point for True's PS100.
The cushioning system is not one that will disappoint. The True Soft System provides a soft impact zone and a firmer push-off point. There are a few lower-priced treadmills that offer comparable impact absorption capabilities, but you'll have to spend $4,000 or more to find a model with a cushioning system that is appreciably better.
We believe that this model will be able to hold up against the stress of regular exercise from multiple users fairly well. Unless you're willing to spend a few hundred up to several thousand dollars more on your treadmill, you're not likely to a machine that will last longer this one.
The warranty that comes with this treadmill is impressive. While there are several models that sell for less and have a similar amount of coverage, that doesn't take away from the fact that True has really done their part to take care of you when you purchase this machine. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts for 5 years, the motor for 30 years, and the frame for life.
