Looking for a prettty good treadmill between $1000-1500

I have been back and forth going up in price then reading reviews and dropping my price again. I realize even $1500 is not enough for a "good" treadmill which is ridiculous. It's a belt and a motor, anymore money and I'd buy something I really want like an ATV

Had originally thought what can I get for ~$700-800? Bumped the budget to $1500 and thought I'd get a Nordictrack Commercial 1750.

All I keep reading is how Icon makes most of the brands and Nordictrack is kind of junk. Some reviews say it's good but there's some that hate it. There are many older models of this machine and 2016 received something new. You have to look at the item number to see if it's an older one.

Will be used for walking and jogging mostly. Not a runner and don't plan to be on it more than 30 minutes at a time. Weight is 185 max for 3 people.

I thought about backing down to the C990 for$1,000. Can save me $500 that I was so quick to want to dump last week.

I heard FreeMotion was supposed to be made in the USA and be built better, but it's another Icon brand.

I'm stuck deciding what to get. For $1500 I think I'd rather get a 4K TV now lol.
Will wait for HDR 4K good deal for now.

Sounds like we are on the same page. I want a long lasting quality treadmill, but I'm not certain those exist lol. A lot of wear and tare is expected I suppose. I think I'm going with Nortictrack C1750. For walking you would probably be happy with the C990 or maybe even one of the lower models. I found some recommendations for both online but I don't recall which treadmills were ideal for walking. I have decided the most important component for any of these treadmills is the warranty. With this in mind you can expect the treadmill to last at least as long as the warranty. Nordictrack and Proform seem to have the best warranties as far as I've found at least. Will $1500 be reasonable for 3 year use of a treadmill? Probably not but gyms are inconvenient for my wife and I'd rather exercise at home first thing in the am. So for us the convenience to run at home is worth the uncertain lifespan of our equipment. Please post if you find anything interesting or a good sale, I'll do the same.
