    I don't want an el-cheep-o treadmill, something that will last and run quiet. Any suggestions?

    Are you planning on using it as a runway for your airplane?

    whatever you get make sure you get the warranty. That thing saved me 2000 bucks in repairs. and replaced the belt. Totally worth it.

    I bought a used commercial one off of E-Bay that was used in a hotel. It looked 90% new when I got it and it has worked perfectly. It's in storage right now due to a recent move. But my point is that you can pick up a well made commercial one that is slightly used at a fraction of the cost... I paid $1100 (including shipping) for probably a $5000 treadmill. For $1100 in a store you would be limited to something from Wal-Mart, etc. It's worth a quick look if you are on a budget.
