I did a lot of research before buying this treadmill. The horsepower is about the most you can get. The warranty is good, and includes in-home repair (although you probably won't need it). The belt is both long and wide enough to be completely comfortable. I'm 220 (for now) and the treadmill feels very, very stable under me and the belt doesn't pull or anything. Got 45 minutes in yesterday and even jogged on it with no problem at all.

The treadmill came with a sheet of paper with check marks where the factory tested the machine's proformance before shipping it to me. The box was in pretty bad shape, and I worried about it not working, but the treadmill was in great condition and wasn't damaged AT ALL. It is packed in a way that allows for the box to be somewhat beat up in transit.

Also, there is a place for a water bottle on each side of the console, as well as room to hold a book or Kindle so you can read while working out. The console is much, much larger than I expected, and the treadmill is larger and sturdier than I anticipated for the money.

I put a piece of velcro on it to attach my mp3 speaker and another velcro piece to hold the ipod in place and now, it has an mp3 speaker and a tv on it. I can still see the heart monitor, speed, and calories burned. I love it!!!

Assembely took only about 30 minutes for me and my husband while our son was napping. It's mostly together out of the box, so it's really NOT hard to screw in the bolts and put the handles on.

The only more expensive feature I miss a little is the automatic incline, but I can deal with having to set it by hand, and I wouldn't spend $200 more just to get this feature right now.

We purchased the machine and the shipping was very quick. The treadmill was easy to set up and beginning maintenance was well explained. My wife ran on the treadmill for a half hour with no problems. I tried to use it right after her and it wouldn't work. The machine was displaying an "E1" message on the instrument panel. We emailed the company whom we bought it from and they gave us a list of things to check for. After checking over the items that the customer service gentlemen told us too, the treadmill still didn't work. We called the customer service line and they told us a technician would be out to help since the machine was under warranty. 3 weeks later we finally heard back from the service technician and he claims he can't come out until he gets a warranty purchase order from Merit Fitness. So to make a long story short, we've had the treadmill for a month and have only been able to use it once. Who knows how long it will be before it's fixed.

I got this treadmill when they were selling it for $280 one day, then the next day it jumped to $350, so sweet! I 9 times out of 10, prefer to go outside to get my runs in. But with new baby addition and sometimes bad weather, I'm not always feeling hardcore enough to deal with the cold and rain, sometimes I want to be a creature of comfort.

I didn't want to drop a lot of dough, did my research, and found this one. I primarily went on fellow reviewers of amazon and other sites to make my decision and so far I'm pretty glad. I'll break it down

Came in really fast if you have prime (two days)
Looks pretty sharp surprisingly for the price
After some tweaking and tightening the belt runs smooth
Digital display of time, distance, calories, speed
Not terrible on the noise, pretty quiet for the most part
Set up wasn't hard at all, one person, 45 minutes or less
Pretty light, not crazy light like they advertise, but decent and easy to move
3 incline choices

Came in fast was 'cause of Prime was a pro right? Well maybe too fast, 'cause the box was shot to heck, and there was a few dents already!!!!
It makes an irritating beeping noise when turning on
You better be someone that can book it, 'cause once you past 2.0mph this thing is flying, almost maybe too fast
Thumb press heart rate monitor is not accurate. I have a Polar Wearlink with my Nike+ GPS and it was showing me around 140bpm while the Treadmill was saying 60bpm, lol, if you trusted the treadmill to get to your zone you'll probably have a heart attack
I don't know if there's a setting to change, but when doing a manual type run, it shuts down after an hour.

I wanted to purchase a tredmill to complete my home gym. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy using one so I didn't want to spend too much. I chose the Merit Fitness 715T Plus mostly due to the price. Frankly, for the price, I wasn't expecting much. It arrived promptly and I was able to put it together without any problems or help. Once I started working out, I was really impress. While I don't exceed the weight limit, I am about 20 lbs shy of it. Still the operation is smooth with no signs of motor distress. The work out programs are challenging and you will work up a sweat! Even though changing the incline is done manually, it's a snap to do. I especially like the fact that this machine folds and doesn't take up much room. It's perfect for a small home gym. At this point I doubt I will upgrade to a more expensive machine with alot of bells and whistles. This one is practical and gets the job done. I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

7/1/11 Update: I've been using this machine for about six months now and I'm just as impressed with it as I was day one. No signs of motor distress or excessive wear. I stand by my original five star rating.
