Product Description

Amazon.com

Experience a new dimension of fitness innovation with the ProForm 490 C treadmill. The 490 C is equipped with a powerful 2.0-horsepower continuous-duty Mach Z motor and a quiet, self-cooling drive system. The motor's axial fan reduces noise as it cools the internal components, enhancing your workout environment and extending the motor's life. The treadmill also includes a ProSoft Plus cushioning system, which reduces impact on your joints by up to 22 percent as compared to road running, creating the perfect balance of comfort and joint protection. And space isn't a consideration thanks to the 490 C's SpaceSaver design, with a deck that folds vertically for easy storage.

Of course, a treadmill's most important function is keeping you fit, and the 490 C excels in this capacity as well. The workouts start with a ClearView backlit display. Perfectly situated, the ClearView's wide viewing angle is easy to read no matter how tall or short you are, so you can always keep track of your workout progress. You can also make the most out of every workout by using the built-in handlebars, which include dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor sensors. Finally, the treadmill comes loaded with a variety of preset workout programs, including eight personal trainer workouts and four weight-loss workouts. The personal trainer workouts take the guesswork out of your routine by automatically adjusting the speed and incline of the treadmill for increased intensity. Simply choose between aerobic, weight-loss, or performance categories and you'll be on your way to success.

As a bonus, the 490 C includes a music port designed for iPod compatibility. The music port is ideal for runners who need a little extra motivation when they work out. Other features include a Power Incline of 0 to 10 percent; a 20-by-55-inch tread belt; a precision Quick Speed control that varies between 0 and 10 miles per hour; and a 300-pound weight capacity. The 490 C treadmill carries a 25-year warranty on the motor and a 90-day warranty on parts and labor.

About ProForm
When most people hear the name ProForm, they automatically think of treadmills. That's because in its early days ProForm revolutionized the treadmill industry with its now-world-famous SpaceSaver foldaway design. ProForm continues its tradition of quality and innovation today, with cutting-edge advances in cushioning, electronics, and reliability. Fortunately, ProForm wasn't satisfied with treadmills, unveiling a complete line of exercise bikes, elliptical machines, weight benches, and more--all geared to providing the most effective workout available.

This is probably one of the better treadmill's that you are going to find at this price range. In fact, the price is pretty good, as other sites have it for $100 more than what Amazon is offering it at (at least at the time of this review). I picked this one because of the Ipod speakers, the cushioning, and the 25 year motor warranty (Amazon says it's 7 years, but both Pro-Form's site and the instruction manual confirm it's 25 years). It's hard to find that kind of warranty at this price range (most you see will be only 5 years). It took about 1 1/2 hours to put together, and you will need two people to put the thing together. The toughest part is putting on the display/speaker unit on the top, as the screws were brutal to get in. A small electric screwdriver would be nice. The belt was already installed, and needed some minor adjusting.

The treadmill works well. It's not like running on a more expensive model, but there was minimal bounce when I was running on it. The locking mechanism holds the deck up well, but not perpendicular to the floor (it's at an angle).

Overall, not a bad treadmill. I hesitate to give it 5 stars only because I haven't owned it for too long. I will update this more when I have some more hours on the treadmill. By the way, the description mentions a different model (8.0Z?), but it was the Proform 490C that I received.

Update:

Some other thoughts on the treadmill after using it a bit more:

Speaker system for the Ipod is great. Plenty loud enough while exercising. Not much bass, but this is to be expected with such a small system.

Display - It's backlit, and provides info such as time elapsed, miles completed (such as 1.567 miles, etc.

The item works good, low noise. However, buyer of this treadmill should know that the item is heavy (175 pounds), and it takes 2 people to set up. Or the buyer has to call Proform technician to set up the item with the cost of $169, if technician is available in the area.

This is a really nice treadmill and we are pleased that we bought it. It is every bit as capable as a treadmill you might see at a gym. It's very sturdy and operates much more quietly than I expected. It is on the second floor of our house and I expected the noise to be inescapable. Nothing could be further from the truth. It goes plenty fast, offers more incline than I can currently use, lots of preset workouts, accurate heart monitoring, etc. Overall, its really great and a fair value at its price.

There are a few items / imperfections...
1. This thing is HEAVY. Seriously. You WILL need another person to move it around and getting it upstairs is a really really big deal. (to be fair, you wouldn't want it to be light-weight. This isn't really a negative... Just a warning. Treadmill. Heavy. 'nuff said.)

2. As for construction, setup was easy overall and everything went together in a confidence-inspiring way. There were 2 tiny issues but both are overcome with some patience.

First the control cord that runs up the right leg is pretty short. It is just long enough to get to the top of the leg, where it connects with its partner - which is inexplicably cartoonishly long. Seems like someone could have thought that bit through a little better. DO NOT throw away "the world's longest bread bag tie". You'll know what I mean when you see it. It's not trash and you'll need it to thread and hold the wires in place until you're done.

Second, the console attaches with a BUNCH of little screws and its tough to fit the console properly until they are set. Just work each of the screws a little and move on and so on until they are all tightened properly over the course of several passes. Ours looks tight but it would be easy to mess it up.

The ProForm 490 was easy to assemble and the manual explained it very well. After assembly it powered right up with no problem. The only issue was I had to reajust the belt after a few trial runs.
