Comments: The bad: I can't give it a 5 star rating just because the setup is difficult. You are supposed to pull the cable up through the right arm. They put a very long bread tie through it and you can tie it to the cable, but there are many obstacles in the way as you pull it though making it very difficult to pull up. I spent well over an hour trying to pull it up the leg. In the end it took a cable snake, the bread twisty tie and a long skinny screw driver. I can say, I'll never take it a part again. The good: Well the unit is rock solid and extremely quite for a treadmill. While we still have to turn the TV volume up, it's not so high that it interrupts anyone in another room with the door shut. The cushion system is nice and there's no fatigue walking/running on it. The incline is insane. I tried 30%, but couldn't stay with it very long. I'll have to work up to that level. The Google Maps Street View is a nice addition and helps keep your mind occupied while you're working out. Other Reviewers Negativity: So before I bought it, I read several reviews. In fact, I think I read them all. 1. "Shipping problems" I cannot complain about the shipping. First off, it was free. How can you complain about something you didn't pay for? I got it 1 week after I ordered it. I did have a problem with the shipping company not wanting to keep their appointment, but after complaining to the manager and NordicTrack, they did finally bring me the unit at 7pm. That's a shipping company problem, not NordicTrack. After contacting NordicTrack, they did tell me that they are changing shipping companies. 2. "Running on an incline will break the incline motor" I'm a pretty big boy (230lbs), hence the need for an incline trainer. I ran on it while it was inclined 10%. It still works, but I bought the extended warranty just in case I break it. 3. "Android tablet is not a full version of Android." Ya, so? I wasn't expecting it to be. I have an Android tablet. If I need it, I'll put it in the tray and use it. The NordicTrack Android flavor works fine for what it is. I had to user issues. 1, I didn't put in the safety magnet and it just loops a video about iFit. 2, At first I couldn't update the software, but I didn't try turning it off and back on. I was able to update after a reboot. 4. "Price is high" I didn't think so. Especially since I looks at just about every machine there was. I'd say it was priced rather low. Even after getting iFit for 3 years, the longest extended warranty, and the mat, I still only paid $3000. I'd highly recommend this machine based on 1 months' use. My wife and I have worked out on it for an hour every other day since setting up. No issues and it works great.
