The carton weighs 152 pounds so if you have two people it will make the job easier. I did it by myself by removing the carton top and all parts besides the treadmill deck. I then tipped the carton up on it's side and walked the deck out of the box then lowering it to the floor. Note that the display console is under the bottom of the deck so pull it out before lowering the deck on the floor.
Unpacking everything took about 20 minutes. Assembly took about 1 1/2 hours. It was easy to assemble. Two people would have made attaching the display console easier but one person can manage it. On the pulse crossbar a couple of the screws were hard to get into the upright bars so I had to apply some hard pressure to the screwdriver. For the latch assembly the screws were very tight in the upright bar. I could not get them to go in with just a screwdriver. I used a 12v variable speed Black & Decker cordless drill with an adjustable torgue clutch. I eased the screws in and out a couple of times until they went in with no problem and finished tightening then with a hand screwdriver.
The treadmill runs quietly and the belt did not need any alignment. I am using it for walking at 2 to 4 mph. I was a little concerned about the width of the deck and maybe hitting the foot rails. The foot rails that you step on at the sides are squared off and raise above the deck about 3/4 inch where the ProForm treadmills with an 18 inch deck or wider have side rails that slant slightly inward and are flush with the deck. So far I have had no issue with hitting the side rails though.
I like the size because at 29" wide you can roll it through a 2' 8" doorway without having to disassemble it. This is perfect for a small house or apartment with not a lot of room. Treadmills with an 18" wide deck would not roll through the doorway based on the dimensions I saw on others.
I did test it with running and didn't have any issues with my feet hitting the front motor cover or trying to drop off the back. That will depend on your height and stride of course. A treadmill review site that I saw recommended a 55" long deck for runners and a 60" long deck if you are over 6 feet tall. It also recommended 18" wide for walkers and 20" wide for runners. As stated though I had no problems with the 16" width.
The powered incline worked perfectly and smoothly both raising and lowering the deck.
The treadmill has heart rate monitor grips on the handles but the manual states to stop and step on the side rails then hold your hands on the grips for about 15 seconds. You can also sync a chest strap to the treadmill with Bluetooth. I prefer to use my Polar H7 chest strap heart rate monitor which I have synced to the Polar Beat app on my phone. The app saves all your workout data and also saves it to your profile page on the Polar Flow site.
I haven't tried the iFIT feature because I'm not going to pay $10 a month for that. I will just use my tablet and pull up a virtual trail video on Youtube.
Console Speakers: The speakers sound OK but don't expect hi-def.
Display Console: Tracks MPH or kMPH, Calories, Time, Distance and Heart Rate.

It is pretty quiet. Of course the higher you set the speed the louder it will get. And if you run on it you will have the sound of your feet hitting the deck as well. I am using mine for walking at 2 to 4 mph. I have an app on my phone called "Sound Meter" so I checked the noise level with it.
Quiet room, treadmill off - 25 db - Between rustling leaves, ticking watch and a quiet whisper at 3 feet in library.
2 mph - 50 db - Quiet office, quite street
4 mph - 58 db - Normal conversation at 3 feet
6 mph - 65 db - Between normal conversation at 3 feet and Busy traffic, phone ringing
8 mph - 71 db - Busy traffic, phone ringing
10 mph - 76 db - Between busy traffic and busy street
Warranty: Frame and Drive motor - 5 years, Parts & Labor - 90 days (from user manual)
Extended Protection: Note that if you purchase the 2 year extended protection on this page it only covers up to $400. So it would be 2 years or $400 which ever comes first.
Surge Protector: The manual recommends that you use a surge protector to protect the electrical components. It should be UL 1449 listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). The surge suppressor must have a UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 or less and a minimum surge dissipation of 450 joules. It must also be rated for 120 volts AC and 15 amps. There must be a monitoring light on the surge suppressor to indicate whether it is functioning properly. I found this surge suppressor that meets all the required specs.

I am a 6' 1" male, 240 pounds. The treadmill works great for me at 3 MPH and 3% incline (I usually do this for thirty minutes a day). It hasn't made any alarming creaks, groans, or rattles, and seems to be well built.
It loses a star for the following reasons:
1) No backlit LCD. At this price-point, I would have expected at least a backlight on the cheap LCD screen. If you are using this in a dim environment (it's in my garage with fairly sparse lighting) it's tough to see the read-out.
2) The programmed workouts aren't that helpful, as you can't override speed settings globally over the work-out. Each workout is split into 30 one-minute segments, and if you change the speed, it resets to the default speed on the next one-minute segment.
The manual recommends unplugging the unit after each use, but I just plug it into a power strip, and turn the strip's power switch off after each session - less hassle than physically unplugging/plugging it every day.
My 200 lb brother was able to run on this no problem. I use it to walk for an hour to two hours a day and the treadmill works perfectly fine.
The arms are parallel to the ground so I can put a platform on it for my laptop and do hw while I walk.
The length is adequate enough for the stride of a 6 ft person.
Perfect for a small apartment.
My 250lb boyfriend could walk on it perfectly fine, but when he set it to 6mph, it began to make some weird noises, and it seemed like it would break.
Calorie counting is not accurate.
Summary: This has the basic needs of a treadmill. It can incline, go up to 10mph, tells you distance, time, has two areas for your phone and it's very compact. However, I give it 4 stars because it is not adequate for a 250lb 6ft adult.
Worked as advertised from the get go, with no difficulties whatsoever, there were no adjustments that I had to make to the tracking of the belt, it feels sturdy and in my opinion does not produce excessive noise while working.
I would recommend the purchase of a mat to protect your floor.
Very heavy so if you are putting together yourself, have your area cleared so you can have delivery guys place in area where you want/need it.
