We just recieved our new treadmill from Wal-Mart for $378.00 plus shippping $50.00 I am not sure what the author of this review meant by poor quality? For crying out loud! What more could you expect for this price range. The assembly went flawless all the parts were there. The packing was done with great care. This treadmill is so quiet, smooth and very cool. The author also indicated that this machine does not fold for storing. Thats not the case with ours. Even the picture displayed in this review shows a latch to fold and lock it in place. If this entry level treadmill last as long as my first treadmill from Wards 14yrs. I will be one happy camper. I put over 8000 miles on that one and only had to replace the roller assembly twice. Both times it was replaced under the extended warranty. Not bad for a cheap treadmill around $450.00. So if your having doubts about keeping your extra bucks in your pocket don't, I believe this treadmill is a winner. Anyone out there that knows something about quality please let me know as soon as possible just exactly what is wrong with the quality of the Golds Gym 450 so I box it up and send it back.
