5.0 out of 5 stars It's great!, 26 July 2012

This review is from: V-fit AR1 Artemis 2 Air Rowing Machine (Sports)
Got mine today and my experience is somewhat different to some previous comments. The rower was packed in a slim box which seemed oddly light considering. Carrying the box up a flight of stairs was easy even for a fifty six year old couch potato. Everything was inside the box including tools, although I would recommend using a adjustable spanner if you have one. Despite claims assembly is a two person job I managed it by myself in thirty minutes. The instruction Manuel is OK but anyone who put together an airfix kit will have no trouble with this. Some of the plastics are a little flimsy but should be OK. Steel and auluminium components feel strong and look well finished. The rower folds for storing but you must be careful not to crush the seat senser wire (like I did) as it is routed in the worst possible place. If you do damage yours the cable looks like a standard audio cable so obtaining a replacement will be easy. I didn't think the computer would be much use but distance traveled will be a handy guide to how much exercise I am getting. In use the rower is much more effective than some reviewers claimed. There appears to be as much resistance as I can handle. In my youth I was a keen rower so I know what the real thing feels like and, although far from the real thing, it's close enough. Summing up I would say this is no Concept 2 rower. However, it costs only seventy pence more than the Concept 2 computer (yes just the computer) but it does exactly the same job. Recommended for everyone except Olympic rowers and poseurs.
