    This machine may save my life

    I'm a former marathon runner who now has severe arthritic pain in both knees. Even walking long distances hurts. I transitioned to an elliptical machine, which was better, but still leaves me with some pain as there is still some weight bearing. I'd stopped exercising for the last few years, and have watched my weight balloon and my health start to decline. I'm so out of shape that housework and even climbing a flight of stair leaves me out of breath. I'm about 5'10" and a depressing 280 pounds of flab. So I'm basically starting from zero. I've talked to my doctor and orthopedist - both of which suggested swimming as an aerobic activity which won't stress my knees. No pool close to me so not an option. I found this machine by accident and was convinced by all the stellar reviews to try this. So here are my first impressions.Amazon had this delivered in two days via UPS. Came in a strong secure box, well packed with large pieces of Styrofoam.UPS brought this... 5/5 BeagleGuy (New Jersey) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Amazing.

    I resisted all the black Friday deals on rowers and bought this one based on the positive reviews. I'm glad I did. Amazon shipped it to me in 2 days. Comes in a large box that weighs about 60 lbs. Very well packaged. Puts together with just 8 bolts. All the tools are included. Took 5 minutes.Despite the positive reviews, this item exceeded my expectations. The machine is extraordinarily solid. No wiggles or give what so ever. Just unbelievable for a 55 lb machine. The rowing motion is great. Clutch uptake is without slack. The slide is smooth. There are complaints about the seat being too hard. I though that the seat was hard plastic, but it's very firm rubber. There is cushion, and I didn't have any problems at all. I bought a gel cushion, but don't find that I need it.I was a bit worried about noise since my machine is in a hard room. But there is not much noise. I'm able to hear the TV from across the room.Overall, this is one... 5/5 J. Luu (Colorado Springs, CO) - See all my reviews, December 4, 2014

    Simple, effective and reasonably robust but has a flaw

    I was pleasantly surprised and excited when this rowing machine first arrived. It was well packed and the frame, supports and track were of reasonable gauge steel. I tried it out and after 5 minutes of use I was hearing a click and feeling a notch each time I took a stroke. The click was coming from the area of the piston where a metal pin secures the piston to the handle. I removed the pin and saw that it was damaged. I did not see any damage when I first installed it. There were two grooves and some marks on the pin from where it was rubbing on the frame (metal on metal). The pin is made from soft metal and if it can be grooved after 5 minutes of use I can't imagine that it's going to last very long. Also, the Amazon product description includes "Adjustable foot straps." I did not receive any foot straps. It's possible that Amazon made a mistake and the machine does not come with foot straps because I don't see any in the product picture.It is disappointing to get a new... 3/5 John E.

    The greatest at any price!

    FedEx just delivered my Sunny Health and Fitness Rowing Machine which was shipped in an excellent outer box with absolutely no holes or rips in it! The rower is completely assembled except for the handle bars which bolted on quickly with the enclosed wrench and 2 big bolts. I installed the console which was a simple slide on affair with a simple wire plug in. I never use consoles but I installed it anyway....it came with batteries included! There were no straps to hold the feet on an NONE ARE NEEDED!The seat isn't the best in the world but solid and glides easily and smoothly. I might add a small cushion for longer sessions. The hydraulic piston adjusts easily and goes from real easy to real difficult. So far I am estatic about my rower, but time will tell if I remain so. Am 86 years old and after a few minutes on the 2nd setting, I can feel the muscles in my thighs complaining, which is proof positive that the rower is doing the job it is intended for... 5/5 Melvin H.

    Exactly as expected

    Pros:CheapLight weight (20ish lbs and can be comfortably carried in one hand when grasped in the middle.)Simple sturdy construction (i cannot foresee anything braking without excessive misuse i.e. using it as a weapon)Stupidly simple assembly: (connected the resistance cylinder to the handle bars with the quick release pin; 2 bolts to attach the handle grips (tool included); plugged in the computer and slide it on to the handle bars; and extend and lock the back feet with the over-sized hand screw.

    Not disappointed!

    Mine arrived on Friday (1 week from order, on Prime) and it took about an hour all-in to put together and set up. Tools and step-by-step instructions are included. It was a pain to get out of the packaging, though.I've only used high-end rowers in the past at the gym so I don't have much to compare this with.I'd agree that the stroke length could do with being another 6". I am 6'2 and I hit the end stops on the row. But, I have gotten used to it.The resistance levels are good and the variety of programs more than enough. Screen is clear and visible while working out.This folds easily and the seat beam locks in the upright position, making it secure and easy move around and store when not in use.Regards comparing it to a Concept 2, I considered this. Fact is, this is less than half the price. I don't think I'd ever justify spending around $1000 for a rower. If you're in the market for a well-built machine at a reasonable price, I'd say this fits the... 4/5 Mr. S. Brown - See all my reviews, February 23, 2015

    nearly perfect

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer (Cypress, TX USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: XTERRA ERG400 Rower (Sports) Does everything I need for wintertime exercise when I can't be out cycling -- I'm not a gym freak so I'm not into all the bells and whistles of heart rate monitors, competitive rowing simulations, and downloading performance data onto apps and websites. The action is smooth and even. The base has wheels that are only on the ground when it's folded for transport making it easy to move around. There were quite a few parts to assemble, but the manufacturer used some clever tricks in packing so that you won't lose the nuts and bolts while working. There was one error in the assembly instructions, but it was easy to figure out.I put an old PC in front of it and am rowing my way across Norway on the Bergensbanen railroad videos. My next trip will be up the coastline with Hurtigruten cruises. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 8, 2015

    0 3/5 Mark - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Marcy NS-40503RW Rowing Machine (Sports) Not bad for the money. A bit on the small side so I would not buy this if over 6'. The display is minimal, but it does keep track of stroke and time. Smooth stroke system. Pretty easy to put together and feels solid. Sits very low to the ground. I have other Marcy gear that has held up well. Good for a first time rower anticipating light use and having a small budget. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 17, 2015

This review is from: Marcy NS-40503RW Rowing Machine (Sports) I like the amount of continuous resistance, the cushion is very comfortable, and fits perfectly in the corner when not in use. Also I'm 5'11 and fits me perfectly. I know some other reviews say that the track may not be long enough for an actual work out, which I agree with if you are 6' and up. I gave it a 4 star because it doesn't track your meters rowed, which sucks. Other than that it's exactly what I hoped it to be. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 27, 2015
