Great So Far
Unfortunately, when you pay 5K for a treadmill, I think it's human nature to say good things about it, but I'll try to be objective...
The 9.33 feels great. It is as good, if not better, than the quality of any gym equipment I've been on--I can't say that about most home treadmills I've tried.
The Precor treadmills are very no-frills. I like that, but they have less gadgets and programs than many others. To me, that's great. I get a car to get me to work. I buy clothes that are comfortable. And my treadmill lets me run when I don't feel like going outside. If you're looking for something to keep you entertained, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a treadmill that runs nicely, feels good, then you're in luck.
If you like harder workouts, I would highly recommend this treadmill. The mechanism is smooth even at high speeds and steep inclines. This is great if you want to do some speed work or hill workouts.
The bottom line for me was that I didn't want a feeling of regret or to worry that I didn't invest enough in a treadmill. I have no regrets, and I am not wanting more. There is a steep price tag, but to me it was worth it.
I wish the installation service had been smoother, but having bought around the holidays, I think the delivery outfit was probably overextended. They could have improved on that.
Overall, a great product. Highly recommended.
