It broke down the first time after 3 hours of use. Warranty requires that the customer become a treadmill technician. Replacement parts are expensive. Control panel, for example, costs $2,000! Get the extended warranty. I have gone through 3 control panels in 8 months. I am sure it would have broken more than four times by now, but I have to wait a long time for the repair after each breakdown. Owning this has been a nightmare!

790 Interactive is AWESOME!
Heart Rate Training
Low Impact Exercise
Best purchase of exercise equipment I have ever made. Paid for the installation from sports authority so no problems with anything. Two workers came and spent two hours to set this machine up so don't try to be frugal pay for someone to get this thing working correctly and you will be happy like me. Some reviews I have read say that the tv isn't worth purchasing I don't agree at all! I love watching my Tivo programs while I exercise. Very happy with my purchase and with ifit program and the onboard programs also. The programs with Julian Michaels coaching you are nice but I turn the volume down all the way because she startles me while I'm running. If you get this treadmill you won't regret it and please get the tv, My only issue with this treadmill is with the heartrate sensors that you place your hands on, they aren't really accurate, You place your hands on and the reading will be 78 on one try then a minute later it will be 128 or something like that not sure what the cause of this is. I love this treadmill and I am glad I spent a bit more money on this model because it sure makes you stay on task when you have so much entertainment if you need it like I do. Going on Youtube and running with the cadence from the marines and the army or just playing funny youtube videos is priceless. You definitely get what you paid for when you purchase this work of art. I keep her covered up to avoid any dust getting in the panels and I clean her as soon as I get done with my run. I know this review is long but I just wanted to convey how much I really love this treadmill and how my life has changed since my purchase. My last doctors visit my doctor actually made the nurse take my blood pressure twice it was way down from my last visit and he commented as to what changes I had made. I told him I started running and he told me that is the best thing I could've done for my health. I've lost over ten pounds and my BMI is down as well. My resting heartrate is much less than six months ago also. I believe they should rename this treadmill to THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.
