A good basic piece of equipment for the beginner or intermediate user. Smaller footprint than most. Time-consuming to assemble but probably no worse than others. Heart rate monitor doesn't work but I've had at least 5 different pieces of equipment from various manufacturers and they have all been just as useless. Ditto with calorie counters--unless the machine takes into account your height, weight, age, etc. it is a poor estimator of calories burned. Data on the console is big enough to read easily. Overall it suits my purpose very well.
As a personal trainer I am aware of exercise equipment, rowing is one of the top 3 cardio exercises due to the use of a majority of muscles being used, best bang for the buck
