When you are at the bottom of the quality bucket, you can only go up! An upgrade from the G 5.9 and that's using the term 'upgrade' lightly.
We use the term "upgrade" as loose as possible with this machine. Although I understand people need cheaper alternatives, what we have found is that you are better off finding a lightly used machine rather than going with one of these "new" machines. We bought an 8 year old True 450 for our treadmill desk test several years ago and resold it to a local family and it is still going strong. Trying to get years of use out of a Weslo is like trying to get blood from a turnip.
