Good points

  • Compatible with the new iFit Live technology though requiring a separate purchase of the module
  • A fair number of built in programs
  • Pretty typical motor and belt combination

Bad points

  • Not worthy of your money if it doesn’t drop below its MSRP of $1299
  • Warranty is pathetic at only one years

Comments

  • At the time of review, the Proform 850 T is selling for a whopping $1299. At this price, you can definitely do better. Usually when you go above $1000, the typical offering is a 60″ long belt, motors that have more than 3 HP and a warranty that is 3 years or so. Perhaps when it goes on sale, it’s worth a second look but at $1299, the 850 T, it’s a no brainer. No brainer in that it’s not worth your time that is. If you see it sold at $799 or $899, it’s not a bad deal. At $699, it’s probably one of the better if not best deals if you’re looking for an entry level choice.
