So I finally decided to see if any old-fashioned mowers still existed, because I would much rather deal with something slower and time-consuming if it meant I wouldn't have to deal with using a normal lawn mower.
Imagine my surprise when I found that there are /new/ manual lawnmowers, and I can just order them from Amazon!
So I decided I had nothing left to lose, and I would give it a try.
Best. Decision. EVER.
NOTE OF ADVICE: If you have difficulty putting it together (specifically, attaching the handle to the blade part), find someone with more upper-body strength to help you. They'll get it done in two seconds. (it took me half an hour of attempting to do so before I gave up and waited for my sister to get home so she could help me)
Also: it only cuts while you're pushing it forward, so all you have to do to move it when you're not cutting is to pull it along behind you.
As for cutting grass? I love it. It works perfectly, aside from a few snags on branches that I didn't notice. If you move it forward and back a few times, you can cut even tall weeds! Much easier than pulling them out by hand in the areas that the normal gas mower can't reach.
It's not silent, but it's also not the deafening roar of a gas mower. If I had to describe the sound, I'd say it's a whooshing sound, and much much quieter than a gas mower. Plus, you don't have to deal with your arms vibrating or constantly having to turn the mower back on!
No more buying gas, no more struggling to pull on the cord hard enough to turn the mower on, and no more complicated wire-pulling to turn it off.
All I have to do is push forward, and the grass gets cut. Stop walking, and it stops cutting. It's easy to maneuver, and it's not so heavy that I can't pick it up and carry it up a flight of stairs to my porch if I need to.
I'm never using a gas mower again.
Cut: Some reviews mentioned it doesn't cut as well as a gas mower. I think you just have to be ok with all the grass not being the same length and there being places that don't cut perfectly. This took some getting used to, but as my yard has grown and filled in, I've started to prefer it. Come spring, the yard will look like the outfield at a baseball stadium.
Weight: I usually mow with one hand, so I can hold a beer with the other. Occasionally, I'll end up having to hold the toddler and mow. i.e. this is lighter and more nimble than a gas mower.
Looks: You're spouse/family/friends/neighbors will laugh at you. Be prepared. But, as you whisper around the yard and it starts looking like a professional job, the cackling will... ya so they'll still laugh at you. I swear its worth it though.
Noise/Safety: Won't cut sticks, throw rocks, get hot, make noise, etc. Essentially all the things that make walking around your yard behind a gas mower unpleasant, this won't do. I have conversations with my wife and daughter in the yard while I mow. The other day, my daughter fell asleep in the Ergo carrier while I mowed the yard. Try that with a gas mower.
I took it down 1/2 star because I think there are better rotary mowers out there that have wider coverage which probably makes mowing quicker. But, that's really being nitpicky. If you've never used a rotary, this is a great starting point and well worth it.
The included video is one-handed, so that is why I had some issues pushing. With two hands it works great!

I'm going to add four photos to this review to show you just how long our grass was/is ... and how much little old me got done in 25 minutes.
It's 90°F outside and I had to come on in. Notice I DID wear a hat! Great way for me to drop 10 lbs (one of the reasons I bought the little thing). Great arm exercise and stomach too ... not to mention the legs with all the walking! Will put sunscreen on later on.
Don't worry, I WILL NOT be cutting all 2.34 acres with this! (We have a SCAG mower that needs a repair hence a quick eighty-buck purchase delivered in two days!) I am REALLY pleased with it straight out of the box. I didn't adjust the cutting blade height ... I just pushed it and away I went! I did have to go over some areas twice -- no surprise -- the grass is L-O-N-G so I did a few overlaps too, just like I would with the power SCAG mower in dense areas.
I like the way you can pull it backwards on its rear rollers (keeping the blades off my concrete patio!) so you can move it to store it. Yes, it's light enough to lift and carry but obviously KEEP your HANDS away from the blades. Nuff said.
