It's been about three weeks since I got my new rower. It came with fast shipping and was packed really well. It was easy to put together with good instructions. I have been using it almost every day and I am up to 10 minutes now, I am really out of shape so going slowly is good for me. I really like the rower, it is easy to use at whatever level is right for you and I can see that it is going to just the thing I need. There is one thing though, the monitor! It doesn't keep the correct time, one day it will be 4 minutes ahead and the next it's 2 minutes behind so I have to use my own timing device. Not a huge problem except, if the timer is off, what about all the other features it monitors, are they off too AND, is the timer off because of something that is not quite right with the rower mechanism. It's a little unnerving, I like this rower and like using it, which means that I might actually really use it all the time, I don't like to think that just when I really begin to see some benefit from it, it will break. One more thing, I can still hang my clothes on it!
I've owned this machine for 5 years now and love it! Just recently had to replace the rollers under the seat. No problem with that as I have put a lot of miles on it. Foot plates are joke, broke the strap almost immediately so I ended up taking an old pair of shoes and bolting them to the foot plate! Works like a charm and been that way for years! Good little rower for the money.
This is the second 1215 rower I purchased in five years. The rower is great with the exception of Fitness Meter which has not worked on either rower. It would be useful if Stamina just added a functional timer instead of the non functional bells and whistle meter they have been using for five years. I would let a friend know the meter is non functional before they purchased the rower.
My husband bought this for me because I've been wanting a rower for a while now. After looking a reviews of other rowers we settled on this one. This is a great rower at a great price. It is easy to use, easy to store, and putting it together wasn't hard either. I would definitely recommend this rower to everyone!
