For a first time rower, this is a good deal. Admittedly, I have only had the rower for two weeks and two days, but I have used it almost every day. My mother has also been visiting for the last week and using it. Both of us warm up on the treadmill and then move on to the rower for a good workout. Fun: This is much more fun than a treadmill or elliptical. The sliding motion is smooth on this rower, as is the handlebar motion. Setup: It took 1.5 hours to put together. Usage: You will have to put some WD40 on the hinges within the first day or two. Mine has been silent after that, though. Make sure the bolts on the resistance are tightened well, too, or they'll slip down during use. Concerns: Wear and tear. I paid $200 for this, and I suspect that means it's only worth $100 at best. I purchased the 3-year warranty, and my hope is it will survive the three years. I honestly don't expect it to last longer, but maybe I'll be proven wrong. I would definitely recommend this based on my (limited) experience thus far.
