Comments: As others noted, it is heavy and awkward, in some instances, to assemble alone. Definitely easier with a second person. I had to laugh when it warned to not overtighten screws. I was barely able to tighten most of them fully, as if the pre-drilled hole was insufficient. And yes, the wiring barely extended beyond the arm it was in. I wondered if I'd be able to connect it, but I did. Barely. I used it for the first time last night. The belt seems loose. I'll have to read the manual about that since one foot seems to catch on the belt. I'm not a foot scuffer. I haven't tried the iFit cards or the MP3 player yet. And I couldn't care less about having a fan. So, I can't comment on those items. I'm most concerned with the noise it makes when running... like the bottom is going to drop out. It's loud and rattles with each footstrike. The console and support arms shake. I weigh less than 150 so I can't imagine what it would be like for a larger person. I see no one else has reported that. So, I guess I'll have to call customer service. Still, I'm thrilled to have a treadmill and am sure it will be a wise purchase (at $999).
