While the specs look good, equipment pros and customers are not impressed with the Reebok R 5.80. Despite the attractive bells and whistles, you want a treadmill that will be reliable and give you 5 to 10 years of problem-free use, and you won’t find that here.
The Reebok treadmills have had a lot of issues the past two years with machines broken right out of the box and a customer service department that doesn’t return calls. Treadmill reviewers warn potential customers to think long and hard before getting a Reebok right now.
The current list price on the Reebok R 5.80 is $1,299 at most online retailers, but it is such an indistinguishable model that Amazon.com lists the same model (# RBTL07108) for $699 but with a 2.25 hp motor. This is an easy call: skip it either way.

At a $699 price, the Reebok R5.80 treadmill offers a lot more value, but you would be nervous taking 3 hours to assemble it, wondering if it will turn on when you’re ready to go.
