The Horizon LS780T is an amazing little treadmill for $700! Proforms are Horizon’s nearest competitor in the budget model range and it’s a toss up as to which you will like better.
Proforms are still better in quality and value at this price level but the Horizons are coming on strong. If you can go as high as $899, we recommend you look at the Horizon GS1040T, yet for $699, the Horizon LS780T treadmill still rates a Good Buy.
