Nice of people to vote cold and not explain??
Been looking for one too lately and I want it to start at 0.8kph and fold away too Argos do a reebok 2.2 edge one for £100 less than this which I'm thinking about going for. Sorry I can't be more help. heat added just to offset the idiots

14kph is about 7min/mile, so you could be maxing this out frequently. These machines aren't really designed to run on, but should be ok for walking on. The motor simply isn't powerful enough to carry your weight when running.

Better looking at brands like Horizon, Nordic, Fuel for entry level home treadmills. You're looking at £500 minimum though

These are ALWAYS on offer in Argos (often for less).
Do the sensible thing and buy used on Ebay from somebody who bought it already but hardly used it. They go for about £150 max.

Why not wait until ALDI and LIDL do their usual "lose weight you fat git" offers in January. They always have some sort of fitness machines, decently priced and I'd happily trust the ALDI brand for decent quality and their 3 year guarantee.

As for running machines generally, a decent one will set you back £1000. But it might be OK for occassional use, if you want to hit it hard it won't last. Also 7 minute miles is pretty fast, if you are anything like me I probably have 9 minute miles in me at best

I'd never buy a motorised treadmill from flebay! You don't know what you're buying and there is no warranty! I bought this one from Argos 18 months ago, paid an extra £50 for 5 years breakdown/replacement warranty and know that I have peace of mind should anything go wrong. With Ebay, it could die after a few months and you're left with nothing and no cash back!

Buying from Ebay is always risky.

Heat added, good price for a decent machine. I would say that it's good for a woman, might not be powerful enough to take a man's weight at any speed.

How typical for the fat lazy blobs on here to vote any fitness equipment cold, it's as though it's a knee jerk reaction for them.....fitness = cold! Whereas if you look at chocolate and alcohol, always voted hot!!

we've got one of these and they are good, the top speed is very fast, only a real athlete would be able to keep that speed up for any length of time, as these are for people who want to get fitter at home they are suitable.

7 minute mile is a very respectable time - although easier to acheive on a treadmill than the pavement - equates to a 3 hour marathon.

Hence why I said buy a hardly used one. There are plenty still going without warranty. I bought a treadmill on Ebay for £300 (£1k new) that has a 10 year motor warranty. So what is the risk.
Besides, this treadmill costs £350, plus the warranty.. so over £400. I guarantee you that I could buy THREE of these on ebay hardly used for that. And I am sure that all 3 would last longer than your warranty period.
You can buy used and sell used and lose no money. As it is , you have already lost at least £250 on your purchase

The risk is that after only 10 months, your treadmill might chuck it and you'll be left with nothing! You "being sure" that 2nd hand treadmills will outlast 4/5 year warranties doesn't actually mean anything.

No, you would have lost £110 ish...so you have enough money to actually buy another 3 of them...
