3.0 out of 5 stars Computer Faulty, 19 Feb. 2009
By 
This review is from: York Fitness R700 Platinum Rowing Machine (Sports)
Everything about this product was great apart from the Computer. It has a fault were, if you set a certain distance or time and start rowing, the computer will reset itself after a few seconds of rowing or minutes, before you have reached the target. This was extremely annoying and so I phoned York and they said they were aware of the fault. If they were aware of it, why is this product still being sold?! They couldn't give us a exact date when this computer could be fixed and advised us to return the product back. Apart from the computer problem, it was a good machine to use.

We have had the same computer problem as the previous one but have now had 2 rowing machines delivered from Amazon. I also phoned York who gave me the same advice. The actual machine is well made and solid so is disapointing to have to have sent the second back.

Yes...just had mine delivered (mid June) and it has the same problem. The rower is really good. It's solid and stable and the computer screen has the stats I want to see (time/500metres, distance left, time done) - it's a shame that it resets after a couple of minutes rowing.

Whats is the resistance levels like on this rower? I find most rowers I have brought in the past are just too weak.

Thanks for the review. I'm thinking about buying this machine but am worried that the resistance wont be challenging enough. I'm a reasonably fit 35yr old. Thanks in advance for any help.
