Wow $1000 to $3000!!! You can get an amazing treadmill in that pricerange!!! I like the pacemaster pro-plus II It's excellent. If I were you though I would serf the net, There is a ton of information on treadmills. When you find information on one you like, You can look at your local newspaper to find one used!! I find that people are willing to practically give fitness equipment away because they are hanging laundry on it!!! I hope this helps!!

I bought a Proform 835QT treadmill from Sears about 4 months ago for around $700. I absolutely love it. My wife and I run on it 6 days a week. We put about 7 miles on it a day at relatively high speeds. It has nice cushioning and isn't incredibly noisy, but it does sit on a concrete floor in our basement. It also allows you to hook your treadmill up to for interactive workouts. Very cool.

I agree with guru about Sears. I've always had treadmills from there with service contracts. They are wonderful about repairs, in fact this last time they informed me the parts for mine were no longer was 7 years old and they gave me a store credit for $600, I was amazed. I don't like the idea of used equipment, though very valid point about being used for clotheslines. Also, I disagree with spending the money on a gym, unless you've got the time to really spend there and most people don't. Believe me, if you get used to a treadmill in your home and REALLY, REALLY use it, you won't miss a day of's like habit forming.
