    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 8reviewers.
    Rated 2 out of 5★ by Consider other models/brands Assembly issues:The square brackets that secure the frame to the center rail do not fit the round-tube (rear) frame arms very well. It took much more torque to tight them down than it did for the square-tube (front) part of the frame. This concerns me because the (aluminum?) rail is threaded and the additional torque required could have easily stripped the threads.Usage issues:The foot pedals are angled a little too much. When I row I like to use as much of my body as possible, i.e., legs, arms, shoulders and back. I think the angle is intentionally designed to compensate for the weak plastic foot pedals. If you like rowing with your toes pointing forward then this rower is for you. If you like rowing more flat-footed to generate more work to your legs and back then consider a different rower. I would rather have stronger pedals that can endure the flat-footed rowing method.A few times the left arm (the shock absorber) has slipped in the middle of rowing. Takes a lot of tightening to prevent them from slipping.There are 6 marks labeled 1,2,3,...,6. You'd expect 1 to be the easier setting. It's just the opposite. 6 is easiest and 1 is the most difficult.Likes:I really like the free-motion arms. You can definitely feel it in your upper back/shoulders. I like the sturdy frame too. The seat is comfortable. I wish there was an on/off switch for the LCD display. It'll turn off after a few mins of non-use.Overall:Because of the foot pedals (and solely because of them) I wouldn't recommend this rower to a friend. With such a sturdy frame, the designers shouldn't have skimped on the foot pedals, in my opinion. Crazy how they can get so much right but miss the mark with something that obvious--especially at the cost of this rower. It should've been top-of-the-line all the way. 03/03/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Met expectations Read mostly good reviews on this product and it didn't disappoint. Assembled in about an hour, very easy instructions but would recommend using a socket set. Motion is very fluid and definitely works the core, back, shoulders and biceps. Even the lowest resistance is challenging for a beginner. I'm about 6'1" and 205 and have no issues with comfort. Only negative was the digital computer doesn't work, but I time my workouts anyway. 02/12/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great product! Love this thing! I had it shipped to a store and picked it up there. When I got it out of the box I was a little overwhelmed. The directions that come with it are pretty easy to follow. They even tell you that you will need two people to assemble it, but a second person really isn't necessary. It took about an hour to put all together. After it was ready, I tried it out, and fell in love. It's a smooth ride, with adjustable resistance. I'm in pretty good shape, but I was huffing and puffing after 15 minutes. It exceeded my expectations. Worth every penny 02/20/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Not quite excellent but good product I've only had this rower for a few weeks so I can't say either way how durable this rower is but so far it seems to be a very solid, well made product. I have owned a different Stamina rower (model 1050) and aside from very poorly designed foot pedals that broke easily it was a good product. This model is an upgrade and better designed footpedals plus individual air shock tension on each pullbar makes it well worth the price. Customer service (based on my old rower) is surprisingly good at Stamina especially considering that some other manufacturers in this price range offer no way to contact them and ordering individual parts is impossible. Walmart offered free delivery to my local store and the delivery date was actually several days earlier than promised. The rower is smooth, reasonably quiet, and the seat is well made and comfortable. The reasons I can't give this rower 5 stars is: 1) the footpedals have slightly limited range of motion, and 2) the adjustable rear support only has 2 settings (almost flat on the ground and a pretty challenging incline. A third middle position would be a big improvement. The footpedals do (as I read in another review) force your feet to be slightly pointed forward. Not terrible but I do miss the range of motion that my cheaper Stamina rower had. The rear support positions only allow for what feels to me like what is a little too easy in flat position and too hard in the incline. I tried the incline position and after 25 minutes my legs were too tired to go longer even though I did not get enough cardio workout and my upper body was not nearly worked hard enough. On my old machine I was up to a 1 hour workout without stopping. Again, not a deal breaker. I just use it in flat mode, increased the arm tension and figure I'll just use it this way for a very long time until I'm in good enough shape to raise the incline and still get a long enough workout for my upper body and cardio. Overall, it seems like a very good machine and very god quality for the money but until Stamina makes design changes for these two weaknesses it's a 4 but not a 5 star. 08/27/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent value. Easy to install. Sturdy, well built frame. Setting up the level of resistance requires tightening a friction clamp rather than a simpler lock - may not be easy. The padding on the handgrip a little too soft and likely to wear out.All these are only small issues. Enjoyed using it after Christmas. Perfect when pairing with a preferred movie :) . 01/03/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great excersize machine Does everything I hoped for 04/13/2014
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good workout for a senior. As senior citizen looking for a workout machine, the stamina rower seems to fill the bill. Easy to assemble. Gives a good workout, especially for the upper body. 06/23/2014
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good for Price This rowing machine I have had and been using for about two and half months now. It worked great up until the rollers under the seat started to crack and the seat wobbled, which I had expected since I had read this in other reviews. I contacted the company by email and they sent me out new rollers that I had within probably about a week, so I wasn't without my machine for very long. I was very impressed with the response time of the customer service people. Then after about a month and half my meter went out also. The meter still works and comes on but the sensor wire that is inside the main metal bar of the unit quit working so the meter just stays at zero all the time and never registers any of your stats. This was also a problem I had read about in other reviews, so once again I have contacted the company about getting a replacement part for it and they responded quickly back that they would send out the whole metal bar unit to me as there was no way to just replace the sensor wire in this unit. Currently it has been a little over a week and I have yet to receive this part to be able to fix my machine. I am hoping this should be here within the next week or I will contact them again. This is a good unit for the price I paid for it, but the other reviews I had read were correct in that the rollers and the sensor wire/meter should have been made of a better quality as they do not last like they should. If you have the money and want something that will be hassle free I would suggest getting a more expensive unit that is built a little better. For the cost of this unit though I have been happy with the overall performance of it, just wish I wouldn't have to keep rebuilding it for stuff that is malfunctioning on it after this short of time of getting the unit. The customer service people though, so far, have been great in helping to resolve the issues though by sending out replacement parts with no hassle. 05/01/2014
