I've only used this piece a few times now, but so far so good. It does squeek and make noise, but when the tv or music is on, you really don't notice. I was able to assemble the whole thing by myself in about an hour or two. We'll have to wait and see how long it lasts.
When putting this together come to find out that the screws were stripped, The back plastic piece was broke. There is also a constant popping noise in the back and in the side handle somewhere. There was a squeaking noise, but my husband fixed that. Wish I would of read the reviews before purchasing this.
i bought this despite the poor reviews, thinking i would have some surprise luck. i did not. i read the same reviews all over the internet for proform. arrived with broken pieces. i would not mind if it was something minor and they sent me a replacement. well, then entire main frame was broken, in addition to other small pieces. the company said they would immediately send me replacement pieces. it took over a week for them to arrive, and all of the replacement parts were not there. i was also told i would then have to wait for a technician to come out which would have taken another week... i just returned it to target. that was not easy either, but better than having to wait almost a month to have the machine up and running.
A pain to put together. It took 2 people over 3 hours.
The item details on line Specifically say that there is a build-in fan.
This is INCORRECT there is no fan. I specifically bought this one because it had a fan. Now that it is put together, I am certainly not sending it back.
