I bought these specifically for P90X and I am entering week 5 so I thought I would review these specifically for that program.
These are the cheapest adjustable dumbells you can buy anywhere. Use a 10% coupon. I think I got mine for ****. delivered. Can't beat that. Came in two boxes, everything shipped well.
These dumbells are adequate for P90X however the program requires you to adjust weight quite a bit on some of the sessions and the adjustment of the dumbells take longer than the program allows. You will be hitting the pause button at times. However the adjustment (which has to be done on both ends of the dumbbell) is easy and fluid. Returning the weights can sometimes take a bit a time especially if your using low weights to re-allign the weights into the handle. I have never had a feeling of any safety concerns with these dumbbells.
The weights are not balanced like real dumbbells on the odd weights (15, 25, 35, 45) but I have not found that to be to much of a hinderance. I would recommend a 5 lb dumbbell set to go with these as well.
These weights are very sturdy and should last a long time.
Overall these are a very good adjustable dumbell set and it will suite your P90X training well. For women I would recommend the 0-25 set in lieu of the 10-50.
THIS PRODUCT IS 50LBS FOR EACH WEIGHT, BUT THE LOWEST IT CAN GO IS 10LB'S. IT DOES WORK FINE BUT I HAD TO GLUE STOPERS ON THE INSIDE OF EACH INDIVIDUAL WEIGHT. WITH OUT THE STOPERS THE REAMAINING WEIGHTS FALL INTO EACHOTHER AFTER YOU LIFT THE HANDELS, THIS MAKES IT HARD TO PLACE THE HANDLE BACK IN THE WEIGHTS. THE SELCTOR SWITCH GETS STUCK SOMETIMES AND YOU HAVE TO PLAY WITH IT. THIS PRODUCT DOES WORK AND IS THE BEST PRICE I COULD FIND. IT JUST NEEDS A LITTLE FINE TUNING.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Was pleasantly surprised how well the system was constructed. Was concerned when ordering 50 pound bell sight unseen as to whether they would be usable. Was very happy with the quality!
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? They came in perfect order.
This item was a steal. The total weight of both item is a bit over 100 lbs, so shipping for under $3 is unbeatable! The quality is excellent. So far, it's been a terrific purchase. My husband uses these dumbbells every and says he can feel a huge difference over the prior weights he used. The ability to quickly adjust the weight is such a time saver to his workout.

The dumbells have potential to be a great addition to my workout regimen but as of now I have mixed review for this product.
1 of the 2 dumbells was defective upon receipt. For the dumbell that works: I think the time and manipulation needed to adjust weights is a bit slower than I expected. To Overstock's credit, customer service was very helpful and quick to provide a replacement shipment for the defective unit.

I am really happy with this purchase, I received it within 5 days of my order. I have very limited space to workout in, so these are perfect. Weights seem durable and well made. Overall I am happy with this product it does what it says it should do.
