Epic View 550 Treadmill Reviews & Ratings
Web Price: $1,299 | Sale Price: $999
For under a $1000, this treadmill has a powerful motor and a longer treadbelt for any training level and height. From the reviews, it may seem as you want get opt for the extended warrenty.
“The TV is something we’ve warned people about for as long as we’ve been around, but that’s because they’re a big potential expense. If the TV only costs $100 extra, and the essential information doesn’t rely on the TV working, then go for it. It’s only a bad idea when you spend a lot of money, and if the essential information relies on the TV working.”-TreadmillReviews.com
“Normally a treadmill with a 3.0 HP motor and 60″ long treadbelt would cost in excess of $1,800. When you factor in the flat screen TV and sound system, this is quite a deal”-Fred Waters
“While we haven’t been a fan of 85% of the TV treadmills manufactured over the past few years, or some products made by ICON, the Epic View 550 treadmill is going to make us eat our words. This is an exciting, solid, affordable machine.”-Treadmill Talk
“With the cosmetic upgrades, it is hard to justify buying machines costing twice as much when you see what is under the skin.”-Treadmill Doctor
“The Epic View 550 provides good value for the budget buyer. It has a durable motor, an advanced TV and audio, and a well-cushioned track. One concern is the short warranty on parts.”-TreadmillReviews.net
“I have had several treadmills and this by far has been the best! Ease of use, great built in Monitor, as well as pre-programmed work out routines are just some of it’s great features. I have never had any mechanical problems with this treadmill and have owned it for over a year putting approx. 8 miles a week on it”-Todd J. Stoner
“Needed treadmill for small studio I was building and liked that it had a tv which was key for me. I am a fairly large, muscular man so I needed a treadmill that could take the pounding. So far, this treadmill is holding up.”-Tojo
“This treadmill is poorly built and started squaking after only 2 months. I didn’t even use it heavily. Treadmill is good for 7″ LCD TV only and as a clothes rack.”-bvigo
“I did my research which led me to this treadmill as the best buy for quality and endurance. I think it sums it up to say that I bought this treadmill about three and a half years ago and have put anywhere from 6-10 miles a day on it. I have never had one bit of problem with it – not one bit.”-rmanno1396
“I walked for about 20 minutes and it felt great and was smooth and quiet. Then I started to hear a slight banging noise. It started to get louder and then the machine started to wobble. It must be true that they put on all the bells and whistles but at the expense of quality.”-riospace
The Epic View 550 has some mixed reviews, but for under $1000 and a motor of 3.0 HP with a 60″ treadbelt sounds like a treadmill suitable for anyone.And as for the 7″ Flat Screen TV, this will sure help take the boredom out of running place. As long as you opt for the extended warrenty you should be in good shape.
