Rated 5 out of 5Â by Clayton A One Heck Of A Machine!!!
I received the 1205 about 3 weeks ago and row 1 hour a day everyday. So far I've lost 10 pounds, 21/2 inch's off my fat gut and 1 inch off my waist. The machine takes up very little room and stays in adjustment as long as you check the adjusters before each workout. My only gripe is the electrical jack that can be snapped off when standing the machine on end for storage. If that was changed it would be a 10 of 10. It inexpensive, will make you sweat and keeps track of time, calories, miles rowed etc. It works for me and that is all I really wanted. Got to go row, goodbye. C

I am glad I made this purchase. I could feel and see firming and toning results in my mid section within just a week of using this machine. My husband assembled it for me & had it together in no time. I'd love to use it in the living room where sunlight gives the rowing experience an added boost, though admittedly, it doesn't blend in well with the decor there. Bummer. Well, in a couple years, we'll be empty nesters ( I think & hope) Then I can have a bedroom for my personal gym. For now, I'm in the basement.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by rocco789 Nice piece of equipment
This is a very well-built machine, and has held up nicely to daily use. The assembly instructions were easy to follow, however, I feel a comment should be added indicating to not over tighten the bolts connecting the shocks to the mounting brackets. During assembly, the paint on the bracket areas underneath the bolting cracked and fell off. This is purely cosmetic, but it takes away from the clean look of the rower. Perhaps larger washers should also be used.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Harlow Great rower for the price
I compared three rowers ranging $200-400 before deciding to buy the 1205 because it appeared to be higher quality than others in that price range. This rower feels sturdy and smooth. It is compact and quiet.
Even the lowest tension setting provides a good workout, especially back/arms.
Hard Core rowers may want to step up to more expensive, fancy, hightech models, but the 1205 serves my workout purposes exactly as I hoped it would.
