Karen, Portsmouth

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Folds up, we have a small flat and can fold it into the corner when we have guests over. Really quiet so you can watch TV while doing your workout. Easy to put together too!
Bad points:
No preinstalled workouts to use, its all up to you! Not bad if you are motivated.

Colin, London

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Cheap and easy to set up and use, reasonably quiet in use.
Bad points:
The magnetic resistance is no where near as good as the air or water rowers if you are used to those at the gym. There is a tendancy for the resistance to vary during a rowing stroke that can be a bit off putting if you try and pull too hard. There doesn't seem to be much difference between the resistance levels. It is not the most storagable of machines, but it is out all the time so storage for me not an issue.

Good points:
I love this rowing machine, it does exactly what I wanted it to. I am enjoying using it at home rather than having to traipse to the gym all the time. It records everything but distance - however I wasn't particularly concerned about that as I am not training to compete or anything, I was more concerned with time and calories burned! It hardly makes any noise - a plus point of the magnetic machines, and has wheels so although it is heavy, it can be moved about slightly easier.
Bad points:
Very difficult to store as quite large, but this is the same with all rowers, folds into 2, sort of, to take up marginally less room, but still bulky. Was aware of this on making the purchase however.

Graham, Gainsborough

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Good value for the money when discounted - not at full price
Bad points:
Within 2 weeks one of the foot straps has broken. The foot blocks are of poor quality. Not conviced that the machine will last through 1st year.

Good points:
Easy to use and does not take up too much space in the house. Moniters the time, reps done, calories burnt and more, so you can see your achievement.
