    OK, how do I say this…. “I love this treadmill”. It has some cons (but not to different from other treadmills) but I will get to them.

    It is really comfortable to run on and in my opinion very quiet. No squeak, whistle, etc, just a nice sound of the tread running. The incline and speed works great. I am a heavy guy and have “stomped” nearly 100km on it in 10 days and it is holding up good, and the impact absorption is great. The incline is quick to change and 15 (max) is more than enough to challenge the most enthusiastic runner. The tread is centered, has not creeped and the machine has not “slipped” or “stuttered” at all in all the time I’ve spent on it. I do have it plugged in a power surge strip that meets the requirements and turn it off when finished (not sure if that really helps but…..).
    The ifit system was no problem for me. I followed the instructions to connect to WiFi. Got a code from the treadmill entered it into the ifit page after logging into my account as described in manual and all works great. (just make sure after each run I turn the machine off after the data has uploaded from treadmill to the ifit account)
    I create running routes at ifit.com, I schedule them and then download to treadmill by pushing the ifit button. I use my ipad to live-view my workout and I get to see the google streetview as I run along. It syncs perfectly and changes the incline to match the route I am running. I have run all over the word now :-). I probably will not use any other functionalities programmed in the treadmill so I will not comment on them.
    Fan works well.

    Cons (if you can call them that)
    It is BIG and long… I ended putting it in an entirely different place in the house to where I thought it would go.
    It is HEAVY… hence the change in location as I would not be able to get it up or downstairs.
    It took me all afternoon to assemble. You have to take your time and carefully follow the not to detailed instructions. You really need to be technically minded to assemble this treadmill. But you can have someone do it for you. (phone number on front of manual)
    If you are using the internal speakers (which are nice) the unit will beep loudly whenever the incline changes or speed changes if you have the volume on. It is a safety feature that can not be disabled. I just find it annoying so I turn the volume off and I do not use the sound through the treadmill to play music… easy solution.

    so as you can see I really don’t have cons as such. It is very early days and I will update this review if it dies or something else happens not so nice.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This is not an easy review to write even though I’ve been using the Power 995 for a a few months already but, strange as it may sound, I am still not sure whether I love this treadmill (a 5-star rating) or hate it (a 1-star rating). I sometimes love it because it’s a very well built, solid, durable, actually fun to use piece of equipment but I often hate it or hated it because the assembly was difficult, the customer support is not so good and you can’t do much on it absent the iFit module which is a strange hardware/ecosystem that will gets a separate review. I will therefore describe my experience broken down into a few sections and let everyone decide whether this is a worthy purchase or not.

    DELIVERY, ASSEMBLY

    Can’t beat Amazon’s free shipping, especially on items like these, weighing over 200 lbs. The box was delivered right into my basement thanks to the freight company’s very nice and very helpful driver.

    Now, putting all together…. we had to do it ourselves and it was not an easy job and it wasn’t easy for several reasons.

    – The manual’s 16-step assembly process was not as helpful as I expected.
    – The dozens of parts were not labeled.
    – The ‘how to assemble it’ video, while a little better than the manual, would often skip over steps or things were done so quickly, it was often difficult to follow.
    – Many screws did not fit very well and had to use extreme force to… force them in.

    On the positive side, I believe that there was always one extra screw and nut in each category.

    It took us several hours spread over 3 days to complete the assembly but, yeah, once we had it all together, we found ourselves with a nice treadmill that should last and in fact did last.

    Should mention that ProForm can send someone to do the assembly for you if you find the task impossible or overwhelming. They will also charge a few hundred dollars for the convenience.

    CUSTOMER SUPPORT

    We had to call them as we were doing the assembly because one part was missing. It took almost one hour for someone to pick up the phone and then another 5 or 10 minutes to persuade the help person that we were a lot more interested in getting that missing part than in buying some extended warranty for something that was still on the floor in separate pieces.

    To make the story short, the super-polite person agreed to send us the part and promised to send us a confirmation email. It never came and, after another 30 minutes or so on hold the following day, someone else desperately trying to sell us some extended warranty agreed to send us the missing part. Of course, it was going to be UPS ground because… why hurry, right? They already had our money.

    The part arrived eventually but the one lesson to learn is that you should be prepared to spend a lot of time on hold.

    DOCUMENTATION

    The manual covers assembly and briefly describes what happens when you push some of the buttons. To my surprise, there is nothing on maintenance. A help support/extended warranty salesperson advised that… yeah, maybe it needs to be lubricated once a year and if you buy the ProForm lubricant they’ll tell you how to do it for sure and… keep it someplace where there’s not much dust.

    There is also a section on iFit. More about it later.

    FEATURES

    The main reason sometimes I love this treadmill is that once you put it together it’s such a great piece of equipment. It looks great and running on it feels great, once you get it to run.

    Amazon’s page has a lot of specs on it and all is true. It comes with a 2-speed fan, can play your music, has 2 nice cup holders, the display is okay and most of the buttons are within reach. This treadmill feels solid, powerful and reliable when used.

    And then… it’s the software. If you are not planning to buy the iFit cartridge think twice before buying the treadmill. Unless you don’t mind manually and constantly adjusting the speed and incline during your workouts. The 30 built-in so-called workout apps are as basic as they come and not worthy of such a great piece of hardware.

    iFit

    But there’s iFit to the rescue. Or is it?

    The concept behind iFit is nothing short of genius. The cartridge should allow your treadmill to constantly communicate with ProForm’s or iFit’s mothership over the Internets and, once you get your account and iFit knows who you are and what your goals may be, there’s a Web site that keeps track of your workouts and it beams up activities to your treadmill so that you can train with Jillian Michaels or some other fitness celebrities as the software would control the speed and incline, play the trainer’s encouragements and get you something different to do every day.

    Great concept, and there can be up to 4 different account per iFit cartridge. Your first year…
