I love this treadmill. I’ve only had it for three weeks now but it runs great. I have put this treadmill to the test and so far it has not disappointed me. It’s display screen is blue and very easy to see under florescent lights in my basement. The speaker quality is not the best but I use my ear pods while running. I think this is the best value on the market today feature for feature. Recommended a winner by a runner…. Don’t be misled by higher priced units saying they’re the leading treadmills. Just because you’re in Sears, Dicks, or Costco does not make you a winner. In most of these stores you can’t test the machine. Sure you can’t test the 6.8 online but you do have an excellent warranty backed by a 60 money back guarantee. Ask Sears or Dicks if they will do that for you?
