I purchased this treadmill via the website on 2/14/14. When it arrived the frame was broken. I contacted customer service and they arranged for it to be picked up and a new treadmill was sent to me. The replacement came with a gash in the computer console. I had waited a month for my new treadmill so I put it together, but it would not come out of demo mode or stop if turned on. I contacted customer service again and a new console was sent. I ran for 30 minutes only for it to stop working! Called customer service again and they went through a lot of trouble shooting steps with me, including having me take the console apart and inspect wiring (really??) which did not resolve the problem. Customer service offered to send another computer console (yay, 10 more days), but it is now on backorder with no estimate of when it will be shipped!! I've owned this treadmill for almost 2 months and have yet to really use it!

This treadmill is great. It is very large, so keep that in mind when you are considering it. My only complaint is that it doesn't give the pace but there are conversion charts online for that. When we first bought it, the incline didn't work properly so I called ProForm service. This is where the 5 stars come in...I was in touch with a live, helpful person in less than 5 minutes. He shipped me a new incline motor with no hassles and I received it in 8 days. When we were installing the new motor, we realized a wire was unplugged in the original motor and it did work after all. Oops. This treadmill has everything I need. The fan is a little weak, but it works fine. Speakers are good. Screen is black and white but again, it works fine. For the price, this treadmill is an excellent value. I?ve used it for both walking and running and I?m pleased. Most of my sessions have been over an hour and I?ve had no problems. The noise level is decent. It folds up easy enough for me (I?m an average 5?5 woman and I have no trouble#. In my case, I really wanted the ProForm 2500 but I was going to settle for the 995. 995 was out of stock when I went to buy it at Dunhams so we went to Dick?s and they showed me the ZT10, The guys helping were very friendly and knowledgeable and this treadmill seems to be similar to the 995 with the screen I thought I?d be sacrificing from the 2500 #only ZT10 is B&W). I do not have the iFit so I am unable to review on that.

I was considering the ProForm 995 when I saw this one on sale for the same price. I bought it today and assembled it. I managed to put it together alone. It took about 2 hours and it would have been easier with another person. You really only need another person for about 10 minutes of the assembly time. I gave it 5 stars, but I haven't used it. If performance doesn't live up to the build quality, I will revise this review accordingly. (or create a new review, if I can't revise this one)
Fit and Finish: This thing is pretty big. If space is an issue, this probably isn't the treadmill for you. It seems to be pretty well made and very sturdy. The package is very heavy and very bulky. I am 6'4" and weight about 250lbs. I had some trouble getting this thing out of my truck and into the front door. I'm not sure if my wife would have been any help, though. It was just too bulky and heavy for her to handle. Consider calling a friend or two to help get it in your house, especially if you have stairs.
Assembly: It was pretty straightforward to assemble. Some of the steps weren't 100% correct, but it is obvious when something isn't necessary. I did not have all of the hardware that was listed in the hardware pack. However, I did not need all of the hardware. So if you check your hardware inventory and are missing 4 of the short 5/16" X 3/4" bolts, don't worry, they should be in the crossbar piece.
Use: I can't really comment on that. I did plug it in and jog at 5mph for a few seconds. Everything seemed to work pretty well. If possible, I'll update this review in a few weeks to a month.
