The FS3.5 is fine if you are a budget shopper. Much better than Sunny and other Chinese direct imports it doesn’t give you quality or durability over the short or medium terms, but at least you don’t have to worry about getting hurt on it.

This is a brand sold at Costco, online and in sporting goods stores and made by Dyaco International who also produces the Sole treadmills as well as their own Spirit brand. They are known for product innovation. Their treadmills are typically found in the mid-price ranges but Xterra is more of Dyaco's mass market brand.
Quality / Philosophy
Decent parts combined with a value price makes Xterra worth looking at if you are in the market for a mid-range treadmill. These face heavy competition from Dyaco's other brands, as well as Icon and Johnson.
Dyaco International has wanted to be a bigger player in the US market and maybe Xterra will be the way for them to get it done. They are certainly getting the distribution to have an opportunity to do so, but only time will tell. Dyaco has been good with product support so we would expect the same for the Xterra brand.
