Edit: Appears to have dissapeared, but there's this one for £250

Well I've gone ahead and purchased it, at least with the Argos one should anything go wrong i'll be able to take it back to the store easily. Just hope it doesn't become a expensive clothes horse!

Does anyone have any of the good reviews the OP mentions.
#4
I saw this and was tempted - but I signed up for the WHich? magazine free trial to see their reviews on Treadmills and sadly this did not pass muster.

However, the review as when it was £500, so at £300 maybe it would be seen in a better light.
#5
I looked into buying one of these a while back because it folds down to an incredibly small size for a treadmill. It seems ok for fast walking/jogging.
Was going to try it out first at a big JJBSports outlet.
Only just stopped myself adding it to my museum collection of exercise machines.
Cheaper than a gym membership - which I am foolishly contemplating again! Maybe I should just donate £600 to charity.
#6
can someone PM me the which review please?
#7
just ordered 1 thanx op.been looking out for this one to price drop for a while.specs looks very good, stylish and compact.2 year warranty on all parts so any problems and its a call to argos who are very good at returns
#8
the 30 day which trial requires you to give payment details which i don't really want to do a PM with a copy and paste of the review would be much appreciated.

here are some review from another sports site selling it for £400



Miss Jane Summer26/09/2006The i run is an amazing treadmill, it feels great to run on, is ready to go out of the box and folds up paper thin. I'm getting a lot of use out of it and i'm feeling more energetic and lively for running on it a few times each week. It takes up a tiny amount of space and looks good too so its not an eyesaw. I would recommend the irun to anyone. Very happy!


Mr Alan Knight15/10/2006Superfast delivery. Arrived on Saturday AM as agreed. Out of the box and set up in literally 2 minutes. A top Treadmill with some good features, very easy to fold and move and looks fantastic!


Mrs Elaine Bell24/10/2006We are very, very happy with the Reebok i-run. It was delivered quickly and you could say it was quite easy to set up - just plug it in and push the button! I think it is difficult for the pictures to do it justice. Its a extremely good quality machine and looks absolutely great! Which is also important because if its a big ugly thing you are probably less likely to use it. I've used a few Treadmills in the past but would certainly recommend the i-run. All the features, the looks and the way it folds up and wheels about so easily make it the best in my opinion.


Mr Mark Fitzgibbon02/11/2006I'm very pleased with the i-run. Delivered quickly and on the agreed time and date. The Reebok i-run is very simple to move around by using the front wheels and its great that there is no assembly at all. Very impressed with both the i-run and the service. Many Thanks!


Miss S Anderson06/11/2006The i-run is a fantastic treadmill. Its great to run on and the programs are also really good. I was pleasantly suprised at the performance of the i-run and for the price its superb. Delivery was fast and I was informed of all the delivery times available to me and tracking details well in advance.


Mr D Russell05/12/2006Reebok iRun:

I've had the iRun for over 2 months now. This is a brilliant treadmill, i've never got so much out of a product before. I would really recommend going for this Treadmill.


Mr Neil Greenfield21/03/2007What a fantastic piece of exercise equipment which is only matched by the superb service from Connection. Order was placed online on a Wednesday at 11am, I received a phone call within 30 minutes confirming delivery and by 8.30am the next day I had unpacked the i-Run, put it on the extremely useful FREE mat and was starting my first workout! And anyone worrying that this machine won't get you fit or won't go fast enough... don't! I've only tried one of the set programmes so far - but over the course of 30 minutes the pace varied from walking to sprinting speed - and I really do mean sprinting! Almost two weeks on and myself and my wife are already noticing a huge difference in our weight, looks and fitness levels. All in all a highly recommended purchase.




Miss Katie Davidson05/04/2007Super fast & free next day delivery, arrived on time, I would recommend to anyone. Treadmill itself is superb, fairly quiet and works as well as anything you would get in a gym. Fols away nice and neatly too. I stay in a flat so was concerned about the noise level and bouncy-ness but there is no problem at all (no complaints from downstairs yet anyway!). Go fo it!
#10
thanks, rep given.
#11
Suspect guys will find the tread too narrow. I did alot of research before buying mine and ended up getting one from eBuyer because it had a half meter wide tread. They dont sell it anymore unfort.

Dont think this is an amazin price tbh. Voted warm
#12
Does anyone know if the running tread is sprung?
#13
is this power hungry?
#14
anyone got a treadmill with a simlar width 40cm doesn't sound much.

Thinking of cancelling now

Quotes from the WHICH? review

The Reebok i-Run is not for the serious runner. Anyone with a normal stride will find it uncomfortable, especially when running fast. It’s as noisy as a spinning washing machine too.


The console shows basic functions and preset programmes, but the potential for boredom setting in is fairly high.

This model has no special features, not even a bottle holder. The front handlebar is too smooth, so hands could slip

cancelling - thanks for posting the review.

Guess i'll stick to jogging.

Can anyone suggest an alternative in this price range (other than the ebuyer one).
#17
Ok so if this isn't suitable for a man, would it be suitable for my wife to walk quickly on? She isn't tall (5ft 4) or very heavy (8st).

If not does anybody have other suggestions please.
#18
i really dont think the running width is too much of an issue.my old treadmill had a width of 45cm and was more than enough room so 5cm less isnt much at all.ok if you want to spend £1000 plus(i did on my last one and its now knackered just out of 2 yr warranty!))then you will get more room but hey are you going to be foxtrotting on it or running in a straight line?

here one for £999 with the same width

If your prepared to wait this is the one I got:

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/120805

Tread width was a BIG issue for me as I was worried about catching the sides and this has 50cm width (best Ive found). I'm assuming they'll be getting them back in stock.

Stock overdue. :)

I've been giving this one a mulling over - it's obviously not going to be a patch on the Life Fitness stuff at the gym (which cost more than 10 times as much) but sometimes I feel like a quick run without going to the gym or pounding the streets.

I think it's a good price for what it is and I'm seriously . As I'm living in an smallish apartment the easy fold away design appeals - only thing I'm worried about is the noise levels (I have neighbours both on each side and below).
#23
oh no, ive ordered one and its coming tommorrow, i hope it isn't too noisy! I'll let you know what its like once i get it. Was really excited about getting it now i'm worried.

The Reebok i-Run is not for the serious runner. Anyone with a normal stride will find it uncomfortable, especially when running fast. It’s as noisy as a spinning washing machine too.

On the plus side, it’s very easy to use and very portable due to its size and light frame, and it doesn’t use much electricity compared to most others we tested. You need to be under 15st 10lb to use it.

The console shows basic functions and preset programmes, but the potential for boredom setting in is fairly high.

This model has no special features, not even a bottle holder. The front handlebar is too smooth, so hands could slip.

Pros: low power use
Cons: noisy, poor handgrips

Can you lets us know asap what it's like re: usage and noise levels. I'd get one tomorrow but I'm worried about annoying my new neighbours if it is that bit too noisy.

:)

Edit: Ta for the info urbanlegend11! Think I'll reserve one and then get it depending on what SIS has to say on theirs.

I'm in two minds about cancelling now, does anyone know if this is covered by the Argos money back guarantee.

Drink and magazine holders.



:shock:

id say if you are going slow enough to read a magazine then id not bother shelling out for a treadmill haha, go for a walk to the shop and back ...far cheaper.

Seriously tho id not recommend any mid price treadmills for running, specially the foldy up ones, usually absolute crap. Pay £1000 + or goto the gym is my advice, also remember it then costs you 'per run' as some of them use loads of electricity, could actually work out as dear as going to the gym if you used it every day maybe haha!!!

IM too heavy for this :(

Oh well looks like I will have to take up Darts after all :)

You can get a decent workout while reading - see loads of people do it at the gym (albeit mostly on an incline).

I think I'm gonna go for one of these - £300 is a decent price and considering it's RRP I imagine you could sell it for that a year down the line.
#31
Can anyone who recieves this today please post a mini review
#32
Mine still hasnt arrived but will let you know what its like once ive used it. Fingers crossed it isn't too noisy.
#33
I think I read the current crop of Argos promotions ends today so any quick review would be appreciated.

:)
#34
I've cancelled my order.
#35
I've just tested mine scoopy2scoops and i dont' really know what all the fuss is about the noise. It's really good. The noise goes up as you go faster but its hardly majorly noisy. I'm really pleased with it. Sorry you've had to wait all day for this but hubby has just got back and needed him to get it out of the box.
#36
no worries, did your husband have a go, what did he think, would it be wide enough for an oaf like me :-D
#37
anyone got theirs yet for a review?

My husband used it this evening and he did running on it, it is actually a bit noisy but apart from that it was fine. I think for the price its pretty good. In terms of the width it would be narrow if you are on the larger side, no problem for me as im short and 5ft!!!

thanks SIS :thumbsup:

anyone else due to get one this week?
