Good points

  • Very few treadmills on the market have an embedded TV
  • Belt size at 20″x60″ is large and will fit practically runners of all sizes;
  • Most treadmills have belts shorter than this;
  • Belt is paired with a motor that’s sufficiently powerful enough to power it
  • Overloaded with many extra features such as 28 personal trainer programs, music port (i.e you can plug in your iPod) with speakers, air fans
  • Weight capacity of 350 lb is higher than average in this price range

Bad points

  • Heart rate monitoring is only available via handgrips so you can’t measure your heart rate wirelessly;
  • No heart rate control programs either
  • Long motor warranty doesn’t make up for a short parts warranty (1 year each) although you can get an extended warranty
  • No iFit capabilities so you can’t download any new exercise programs

Comments

  • Out of all the treadmills that come with a TV integrated, the Proform Perspective ES treadmill is probably your best bet. The only other real contender in the TV treadmill space is probably the Epic View 550 which received a recommendation by Consumer Reports magazine the last time it looked at treadmills. But if you actually compare the Proform Perspective ES and the Epic View 550, you’d notice that they’re practically identical. In fact, outside of the exterior logo stamping and the color change, spec for spec, they’re the same. So if you’re in the market for a TV treadmill, should you buy the Epic View 550 or the Proform Perspective ES? If you place your faith in the Consumer Reports magazine, then go with the Epic View 550 but for us, it’s better to save the extra $50 and buy the Proform Perspective ES instead. Truth be told, a TV treadmill is not such a great deal. Even though these TV treadmills are higher in quality than our recommendations for under $1000, they’re still more expensive than they should and could be. Considering how much standalone TVs have gone down in price in recent years, you can get one of our under a $1000 picks and get a standalone TV and you’ll still have more money left than buying a Proform Perspective ES or an Epic View 550. But some users like their treadmills right in front of them when they workout and for those people, the Perspective ES from Proform is a good and solid choice.
