I wanted a sturdy and reliable treadmill on a budget and after much internet searching and checking of reviews I decided on the TT8. The interest free repayment options and excellent warranty were a clincher.
Sales were friendly and relaxed, no hard sell or 'last day' offers. Delivery was arranged for a date to suit and I was kept informed throughout the process. The chap who set it up for me was helpful and informative and when I had a couple of after-sales queries they were dealt with politely and efficiently.
I've done a few long runs on the treadmill and the cushioning is good, the controls easy to use and the machine not too noisy. The iPod speakers are a nice extra and loud enough when on the move. The fan is fairly weak and the heart rate programmes need a Sole chestband (Polar is not compatible) but these are minor niggles really.
Speed changes are a little slow when doing intervals but unless you are prepared to spend a LOT more I think this is always going to be the case; for a recreational runner like myself it wouldn't put me off buying it again. Overall I think it represents great value for money from a great company. I would definitely buy from them again.
I love the simplicity of the programme which saves me tedious hours of menu planning, shopping and weighing out my food. Although it isn't cheap it can be partially off-set against your usual food bill. I don't have a lot to lose and this is my second visit to the diet - I find it ideal for a month and expect to lose half a stone. I exercise quite a bit but it's very simple just to add a portion of brown rice at dinner or a slice of wholemeal bread at lunch etc. You can go to bed with a clear conscience and not have to worry about planning ahead. It's a doddle.
The breakfasts and lunches are very similar to my normal diet (I'm a porridge and soup fan) minus the crisps and biscuits... I have found all but the couscous based lunches perfectly edible and some are delicious. The dinners are a bit more hit and miss and, as other reviewers say, thay are bit heavy on the sauce side. Saying that, it does mean you have a sauce for your vegetables and you can always get the last up with a spoon!
If you're a busy person and like to keep it simple I'd definitely recommend giving it a go.
