Comments: Love the commercial 1500, it is heavy duty and built to last. Assembly was easy and instrctions were very clear but it does require 2 people. The speed can be reduced all the way down to .5 which is great for my 85 yr. old mother-in-law who works out every day. I LOVE the built-in 2 speed fan and the Ipod port with speakers, it makes working out enjoyable. The -3 incline feature is also neat so you work different muscles. The reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because the heart monitor is too eratic and doesn't give consistent read out using either the grip handles or the chest strap.
