5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job., 4 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Office Fitness Walking Treadmill - Home or Office Use - 1 Year's Warranty (Office Product)
There are a lot of walking desk becoming available these days. However, most have a price tag that nearing £1000 or upwards. I'd tried standing desks before and hadn't really got on with them. So not being prepared to fork out over grand for a walking desk that I may never use I needed to find another solution. I saw this walking treadmill from Office Fitness which was only £150 and thought I'd give it a punt. Even if it didn't work out I wouldn't have lost too much. It turns out that this was an extremely good buy, and is perfect for my needs.

• It's not silent, but it's quiet enough that it doesn't bother my other half while I'm walking on it.
• The walking area is only 12 inches wide but this doesn't appear to be an issue, and I'm 6'3". I brush the sides with my feet from time to time but it hasn't affected my stride or my work.
• As mentioned in one of the other reviews, the treadmill does turn itself off after 30 minutes. This was a bit of a shock the first time, but I now use this and a good way of reminding myself to take a break for a couple of minutes.

My only complaint is the control panel emits ear piercing beeps each time you press one of the buttons and there appears to be no way to stop this.

Of course this doesn't come with a desk but I think that's also a good thing as a lot of the desks I've seen with walking treadmills are not exactly my taste. I was able to hack one together with some random Ikea bits and bobs which is now perfect for my height.

Overall I'm extremely happy with this purchase, and even if it doesn't last much beyond it's warranty I could still buy many of these for less than some of the other treadmill desks on the market.
