Vision T40 Elegant Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
We were wondering if the designer sneezed when he was drawing the hand rail.
The better programmed version with the nicer display for an extra $600 over the simple "Classic" version.
The Vision T40 Elegant is essentially the same model as the T40 Classic. It offers better programming and an enhanced display. At $3,499, you're paying an extra $600 for those slight differences, but it is a high-quality treadmill. The main issue is whether the minor variations between the Elegant and Classic version are worth $600 to you.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which has become the standard size walking belts that are found on many of today's treadmills. This should provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably.
A decent motor powers this machine. If you know where to look, however, you can find treadmills that sell for $2,000 less than this one does that offer greater power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
An unimpressive cushioning system comes on this model. Ultra Zone cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. There are a few treadmills that sell for less than $1,000 that offer a more forgiving and durable running surface.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine does pretty well. Still, it wouldn't be wrong to expect a more durable treadmill considering the cost is over $3,000. The quality of parts used is also good but not earth-shattering at this high of a price.
The warranty on the Vision T40 Elegant is great. Labor is covered for 2 years; parts are covered for 7 years; and the frame, motor, and cushioning are covered for life. This is the kind of warranty you hope for when you're asked to make such a large investment in a treadmill.
