Looking for recommendations on a Treadmill

...for those days that I can't break away and get to the gym. I work out of my home office, and usually make it 3 days a week to the gym, but for the other days I've realized that I could be here in my office walking or running a treadmill while listening in on conference calls, etc. Would be nice and a lot more convenient to have one right here....I think I could get in a lot more cardio.

I've been reading about the climber models....the X3 from Nordic Track looks ok and has gotten some decent reviews....I can see where that 40% incline would be of great benefit. However, it only has like a 54" belt on it....so running would be out of the question at my height (6.3).

Anyways....wanted to see if anyone out here has recommendations.

Thanks.

If you want the good stuff, then go with Landice, True or Life Fitness (T5 and up). Nordic Track is junk, they make their money via a lot of internet marketing (that's why they get "good" reviews).
