  • Other than that it's a great product and I would recommend it!
  • I can only recommend this product as I have tried it out for
  • I do not recommend this product to anyone bigger than I am

Reviews around value (3.93 of 5)

  • However it broke as of a week ago and it is because this machine was NOT MENT FOR RUNNING!!!!!!
  • There are definitely better treadmills out there, but this is a good value, especially considering my limited demands
  • The confidence plus electric treadmill is a great value, easy to put together, takes little space yet gives you a good work out
  • That jerking kinda ruins my stride as I was not a natural walking sensation, but if you can imerse yourself into watching Tv or whateve distraction you might have to accompany you during your walk, you can ALMOST ignore it.
  • I've also noticed the instructions state you shouldn't be on the unit when staring it, but standing off the belt, on the side rails--this is odd, since it then requires you to hop on and it jerks as you do

Reviews around work (3.76 of 5)

  • Amazing customer service and the new one is working great.
  • I am happy to have a treadmill but this is harder and more work than walking outside
  • So far it's working great, and it's far less expensive than a bona fide walking desk treadmill.
  • I bought this treadmill over a year ago to utilize when work is slow
  • Just recieved my confidence power plus treadmill in good working order and am very impressed with this compact little treadmill.

Reviews around walk (3.34 of 5)

  • A few brief notes:I don't know that this a great treadmill for running, but for walking and typing, just right
  • You burn over twice as many calories walking, even slow, than you do sitting!
  • Its great treadmill if you want something for walking or brisk walking
  • It is definitely NOT a treadmill that anyone could reasonably expect to purchase for home use for running (or even really intensive walking, as far as I'm concerned), but it is great if you are looking for an economical purchase for slow walking.
  • Let me explain...as I was testing out my treadmill, I increased the speed to about 2.3 miles per hour which gives you a good walking pace

Reviews around thing (3.26 of 5)

  • After walking at faster speeds once I got the hang of it, the thing eventually started to rattle incessantly and smell terrible
  • I found the damage after setting it up along with some other weird things, such as plastic runners on the side of the belt that are simply taped down
  • This thing is terrible, I tried this numerous times before returning it, and I did not feel safe at all when using this
  • In spite of the possible drawbacks, I do love this thing because of the cost, size, and easy conversion to an under-desk treadmill.
  • Again, I don't use it to run on nor even walk fast on as I detest

  • However it broke as of a week ago and it is because this machine was NOT MENT FOR RUNNING!!!!!!
  • I should have paid a little more for a sturdier machine.
  • But overall, for the price it's a terrific little machine
  • However, I run, alot, and this machine is just not good for that.
  • This is the perfect machine for walking, not running, at home.

Reviews around belt (1.95 of 5)

  • It's a little wobbly and the belt isn't as smooth as one would find on a nicer treadmill.
  • The treadmill is basically just a belt running on top of a piece of lubed particle board, and the board was cracked on arrival near the top right side
  • It's not too bad since it can fit a standard stride, but if you like a wider or longer belt then this might not work out for you.2.
  • I did not realize that was necessary at first, and found the belt to be jerky
  • It still caused the belt to start creeping to the right.

Reviews around noise (1.83 of 5)

  • I took it out to use and it makes the most awful noise after a couple of uses.
  • I'm 5'7 and and the stride is not long enough, the belt keeps sliding to the side and gets caught underneath the hood at the front and makes a loud screechy noise
  • (After a few minutes of using it, i heard the belt scraping something, but after i straightened the belt after tightening the bolts, the noise went away)You can tighten the handle so you can hold it if you slip
  • When I first turned it on, it made this incredibly loud, scary noise, like a pneumatic drill
  • The slight noise doesn't bother me and if I don't have to interrupt my walking on simple phone calls I won't

Reviews around calory (1.69 of 5)

  • Just hit start and push the button to make it go as fast as you want
  • That jerking kinda ruins my stride as I was not a natural walking sensation, but if you can imerse yourself into watching Tv or whateve distraction you might have to accompany you during your walk, you can ALMOST ignore it.
  • this treadmill has basic features such as distance, calories, and time and works great for walking/running.
  • At my body weight--about 190 pounds--I can burn about 200 calories an hour when walking 2 miles per hour (the treadmill feels like it runs slow, so I set it to 2.5 mph)
  • However it broke as of a week ago and it is because this machine was NOT MENT FOR RUNNING!!!!!!

Reviews around hand rail (1.51 of 5)

  • Just hit start and push the button to make it go as fast as you want
  • The only issue would be the cord leading from the electrical board to the control panel is now on the outside, not threaded through the hand rail
  • (The control panel was supposed to be secured to the hand rail with a screw but couldn't find a hole for the screw to go into in the handrail; the control panel seemed fairly secure without it, so just didn't bother about the screw.)
  • Just hit start and push the button to make it go as fast as you want
  • Screw the plastic handled screw with the long-and-narrow metal screw ('locking pin') into position about 1/2 way down on the left side of the hand rail.

Reviews around instruction (1.47 of 5)

  • Again, I don't use it to run on nor even walk fast on as I detest
  • I recommend following Gary Pendergast's excellent instructions here:[
  • /question I have is regarding the instruction leaflet--absolutely abysmal instructions!
  • I am using this under a standing desk and followed these excellent instructions to make it work for me: http://www.treadmilldeskdiary.com/setting-up-my-confidence-power-plus-treadmill-for-a-desk/. I removed the handles to get it to fit under my desk and put the control center on the desk
  • The instructions are very lacking, I even called the company and left a message (it was after hours), but we finally figured it ourselves

Reviews around box (1.33 of 5)

  • It was easy to put together and use, and the box was easy to move into the house without a dolly.
  • It arrived on schedule and though the packaging was poor (box not good quality) it was not damaged
  • It also arrived without any holes in the box which I was happy about based on other reviews, boxes were delivered damaged
  • (The box was broken, but all the parts were there and treadmill was in fine shape.
  • This works like it should and when I wanted it to have a higher incline I just put a 4x4 under the front, be aware the thing is not packed very well at least for shipment by UPS cause the box was beat to death and one front wheel was broken, but since I wanted to be able to put it on a 4x4 for more incline I took the other one off so that it would not slip off.

Reviews around beep (1.27 of 5)

  • The next little nugget of irritation I have is the loud annoying beep with no volume control that is emitted at the touch of every button on the control panel
  • I had to make modifications to the control board to disable the speaker since that beep was really loud and annoying
  • The beep is pretty sharp, and always brings my dogs on the run to see what they are missing
  • The motor is not loud but the beep that occurs every time you press one of the buttons could be a little less noisy
  • When you press any button, there's a LOUD beep, every time you press it

Reviews around stop (1.17 of 5)

  • Also, when stopping the treadmill (usually treadmills come to a steady stop), it immediately completely stops, and I almost fell from expecting it to slow down and gradually stop
  • mark, the darn thing beeps (of course) and comes to a dead stop within 1 second
  • The 30 min sudden stop is an annoyance, so I have to remain watchful to avoid the jerky stop while working.
  • I rather like the 30-minute interval, as it keeps me conscious of the amount of time I've used it, but the sudden stop is hard to get used to
  • The only thing that I don't care for is the 30 minute limit and the abrupt stop

  • Again, I don't use it to run on nor even walk fast on as I detest

Reviews around foot (1.00 of 5)

  • As others have said, you have to mind your foot placement while using it because it's easy to drag your foot on the edge outside the belt.
  • The motor is very weak, so when you walk, the weight of your foot stops the belt for a moment (even at ~120-130 lbs), and the treadmill jerks your foot back as it collects the power to keep going
  • The entire bottom part came flying down and smashed my foot
  • I wish the belt had some cushion below it, as it hurts my feet.
  • My feet kept either hitting the front-end of the treadmill or falling off the back end

Reviews around knee (1.00 of 5)

  • It was hurting my knees to walk up the stairs in my house

  • This is coz i have bad knees and cant take him for long walks but only short sniffing walks

Reviews around burn smell (1.00 of 5)

  • One reviewer mentioned a burning smell and had installed a fan, but I had my front panel open for a few days, and at treaddesk speeds noticed no
  • The motor had a very slight burning smell from the first time we used the treadmill and it is getting progressively worse as time goes by
  • Because sometimes I smell a faint plastic burning smell that I'm not sure if it is my shoes scraping on the sides or the engine
  • The belt snags, and there is a burning smell when ever I slow it down, hope it lasts a few months and i get a few uses out of it before it breaks down :/
