Good points

  • Even at the original MSRP of $799, it’s not a terrible deal especially compared to a few years ago
  • iFit Live compatible but requires the purchase of the adapter
  • Proform now supports iPod even at the low end of the totem pole of its lineup

Bad points

  • Though the treadmill is not expensive, it also suggests that they have to be cutting corners somewhere to make it this affordable
  • Potential headache if you plan on doing serious training on it

Comments

  • The Proform Performance 400 certainly won’t be turning heads for its quality and features especially compared to the competition on the web these days. But this treadmill really does shine at $599 if you’re looking for a truly entry level treadmill. Yes, there are some obvious problems like having only 15 built in workout programs with no iFit cards and requiring a separate purchase of the iFit Live module or having a very crappy warranty. Yes, the warranty truly is crappy. But understand that you’re only shelling out for something like $600. What can you expect, really. This treadmill is on the low end but there have been much worse at this price before. Worth a buy if you can’t afford to pay more.
