Whether you already row or are considering rowing as a way to keep in shape, cross train for another sport, or compete on the water, the Concept2 Model D indoor rowing machine is a terrific choice. Rowing offers several benefits over other exercises: it exercises your entire body, including the arms, legs, chest, back, and abs; its low-impact rhythm is easy on the knees and ankles; it burns a ton of calories because it uses so many muscle groups; and it relieves stress. The Model D adds to these benefits by offering such features as a quiet flywheel thats designed to minimize noise while providing the smooth feel of rowing on the water, along with a spiral damper that lets rowers choose the feel of a sleek, fast boat or a slow, heavy boat.
The Model D offers a different rowing experience than the rowing you did as a kid. The difference lies in the sliding seat, which compresses and extends your legs with every stroke, in addition to the more obvious work being done by the back and arms. This promotes both strength and flexibility throughout the wide range of leg and arm motion, while challenging the back in the middle of the stroke and the abs at the end. In addition, customers say that the rhythmic nature of rowing helps clear the head and ease the stress of the day.
The Model D comes with a PM3 performance monitor that accurately tracks your distance, speed, pace, calories, and watts, with five display options for rowers--all data, force curve, rowing with a pace boat, bar chart, and large print. The monitor also provides easy menu-driven operation, letting you access a powerful list of features, including preset and favorite workouts, trials against a previous performance or pace boat, FISH games, animated rowers that teach techniques, and multiple language options. If motivation is what you need, you'll find it in Concept2s online challenges, Million Meter Club, and online ranking.
The Model D is also notably comfortable, with an ergonomic handle that allows for a natural arm and hand position; an aluminum rail capped with a stainless-steel track for smooth seat movements; and adjustable Flex-foot footrests. Other details include a removable LogCard that stores your workout data and personal preferences; built-in heart rate monitoring with an optional Polar receiver (sold separately); a USB interface for easy data transfer to a PC or Mac; caster wheels for quick mobility; and a collapsible design for efficient transport and storage.
The Model D requires a footprint of 9 by 4 feet for use and offers a weight capacity of 500 pounds. It also carries a five-year warranty on frame parts and a two-year warranty on moving parts and the monitor.

Pros: exceptional craftsmanship. No cheap plastic parts, no weird features, and no 4-hour assembly required (I put it together in 15 minutes, half sauced on Heineken). Commercial sturdy, steal chained, no belts or pulleys to slip or break. Quiet, easily adjustable, each pull of the "oar bar" blows a soft breeze over the body. This thing is "The Balls."
Cons: it's almost 10 feet long, and it uses all the length. So if you're tight on space, consider expanding, moving, or kicking the husband/wife out. You must have this machine! And the foot tie-downs are a bit difficult to adjust at first; easily replaced with Velcro straps for about $6.
If you want to mess around with $300, $400, or $500 rowing "machines" - then go ahead. If you want an awesome workout, no worries on breaking parts or funny computer sync issues... the Concept 2 is for you. If you have the coin, spend it! You will never want or need another Rower.
I give it 10 stars. The Concept 2 is the Dionysus of Rowing Machines.
The warranty is 5 years on the frame and moving parts but only 2 years on the monitor. My PM3 monitor appeared to fail (appeared totally dead including after a change to fresh batteries) about 2.4 years in. I contacted Concept2 and they responded the same day with a phone call (which I missed so they left a voicemail) and a detailed and helpful e-mail with debug suggestions. They also indicated they would replace the monitor under warranty if the debug did not work. I'm not sure they had to -- or maybe I misunderstood the duration of the warranty as indicated on their website. Or it might have been the relatively small amount of use my unit has seen which I did comment on. Either way, they solved my problem promptly, with courtesy and expertise.
In case this happens to you -- here is what fixed the "dead monitor" problem I had with my PM3:
HARD RESET - Remove the batteries from the monitor for at least 10 hours or more so all the power stored on the circuit board dissipates. Reinstall a set of alkaline 'D' cells that is known to be good. If the monitor does not restart then it will need to be replaced. If it does restart, a firmware update is recommended to ensure you have the latest version.
I originally provided a review that dinged Concept2 a bit on the two issues I've experienced but now have upgraded back to 5 stars since I haven't seen a better unit in the market and mine is now 100% again.
They provided great customer support and that is worthy of note!
Be aware that is does take up a large footprint and you should consider this when buying. But if you are purchasing a rowing machine then you probably already know this.

Minor complaint: Hey Concept2! Your rower computer can do so many different things, how about a simple stroke count?
Still, very highly recommended! 5 enthusiastic stars!
