    PROS

    1. Quiet operation.

    2. Sturdy design & construction.

    3. 3 levels of incline for varied workouts.

    4. Dual weighted flywheels offer a smoother, quieter, and more consistent workout than single-flywheel manual treadmills.

    5. 8 levels of adjustable magnetic resistance.

    6. Large computer display means easy to read workout progress.

    CONS

    1. The 12.5-inch treadbelt width is rather narrow. While a narrow belt offers the advantage to let you move the treadmill deck with lesser effort or strength (smaller contact area between belt and roller equals less friction), it does have its drawback as some users may find a narrow belt awfully difficult to walk on with their feet side by side.

    2. Higher cost of ownership (about $255 at time of writing) in comparison to other manual treadmill models which are priced in the range of $120 to $160.

    The Bottom Line:

    Our rating for Avari A450-261 Magnetic Treadmill : 3.8 of 5

    For the quality, Avari A450-261 Manual Treadmill is an excellent investment IF you're happy with the 12.5-inch belt (which is the normal belt size for most manual treadmills on the market), and you do not mind paying a bit more.
