Vision T80 Touch Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Nice touch screen but I still can't get over a $6000 price tag for a Vision. If you can get a deal on it, it will be a great treadmill but I would be channeling Monty Hall.
Great treadmill but they are really proud of it as shown by the price.
The Vision T80 Touch is a very nice treadmill. You get a good quality machine with lots of programming options and a touchscreen to go with it. Still, at $5,999, it's severely overpriced. You can find much better models in this price range, and we suggest you do just that.
The walking area is quite large. The belt measures in at 22" x 60", which is 2" wider than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. Users with a wider stance that are used to the smaller belts may find this model to be more accommodating.
A motor that leaves a lot to be desired powers this machine. For less than $2,000, you can find treadmills that have greater power producing capabilities than this one does. Still, speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A cushioning system that belongs on a much cheaper model comes on the T80 Touch. Ultra Zone cushioning is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. You can find treadmills selling for $1,500 that offer a similarly forgiving and durable running surface.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is disappointing. There are treadmills selling for just above $2,000 that have a longer life expectancy than this model does. The quality of parts is also much lower than it should be for a treadmill that costs $5,999.
The warranty on the Vision T80 Touch is great. Labor is covered for 2 years, the parts and motor are covered for 5 years, and the frame is covered for life. This type of coverage is the only thing that comes close to making this treadmill seem worth the price.
