From the manufacturer
Provides a cardiovascular workout to tone and strengthen arms, legs, shoulders and back.
The rower has an easy to use console that includes readouts for distance, time, calories, stroke count and strokes per minute giving you all the information you need to get a great total body workout. The console uses two AAA batteries and requires no external power supply. Making this rower both energy efficient and convenient.
Quiet and Comfortable
The patented Eddy Current Drive System delivers smooth and ultra-quiet resistance and the belt retrieval is slack free, even during intense workouts. There are 5 levels of resistance that are conveniently controlled by a resistance knob located directly below the display. If you’re looking for a rower to use without turning up the TV or waking up the family, this rower is a great fit.
For comfort, the rower includes padded hand grips, a comfortable 14-inches injected foam seat supporting users up to 300 pounds and large swivel foot pedals with Velcro straps.
Quick Fold for Easy Storage
No tools are required to fold and store the rower. Simply remove the locking pin, fold the rower and replace the locking pin to lock the frame in the folded position. Once folded it rolls on the transport wheels located underneath the footpads. A great product when floor space is limited after use. Compactly folds to a mere 34 x 19 x 64-inches (L x W x H) from it's unfolded dimensions of 90 x 18.5 x 23-inches (L x W x H).

Putting this thing together is a piece of cake. It literally took me 15-30 minutes. The main piece, the big gray box that houses all the pulleys and such, is already assembled for you. All I had to do was attach the seat, bars, etc. (The instructions were a little confusing when it came to the seat; I actually thought they hadn't sent the bolts for it and was very upset. Turns out the instructions were just a little poorly done for that particular piece, so if you get the same thing, don't worry!)
There are several different tension settings, so you can choose what works best for you.
And possibly my favorite thing - the seat and long bar fold up easily so storing it, or just reducing it's footprint, is really easy.
The computer part is supposed to show you strokes/min, a timer, estimated calories, etc. You put in the included battery and pop the unit into place. Mine has never worked. Oh, when I start rowing, numbers show up. But only on the timer - everything else stays blank - and the timer seems to work randomly. It will say 2:17 for a very long time, then decide to work for about four seconds, then stop again, etc. I have to use a watch in order to actually time my workout. Obviously it doesn't affect the workout, but it is disappointing.
If I get into a good rhythm and start pulling with any force (and it's just a fabric strap you're pulling) I find that the front actually lifts off the ground. I only weigh 135lbs, so I definitely didn't expect to pull the unit right off the ground! I actually had to find some heavy weights and put them on the front feet in order to keep that from happening.
After about 7 or 8 workouts, I started to notice a bit of noise when I was using it. After I pull, and I start to move forward, there's something like a squeak or a squeal. I assume it's from the pulleys inside the machine, and it's very distracting. I don't expect a silent machine, especially in this price range, but I like to try to watch tv while I'm rowing and the constant squeal/squeak gets extremely frustrating.
All in all, you get what you pay for. You're going to get a decent workout, it gets heart rate up, and it's much better for cardio than an elliptical or treadmill. (In my opinion.) But you're not going to get quite the same quality of experience you would if you shelled out the extra money for a higher end model like the Concept 2.
But for the price this is a good purchase and was easy to assemble.
I've used it every day for about three weeks and I see one issue that will take some attention to deal with and avoid maybe a serious injury. Over time the rail that the seat slides back and forth on can build up a residue. This residue from dirt, grease, sweat and oils can cause enough resistance to slow, if not stop the seat from freely sliding on the rail. It happened to me today when I pulled and extended my legs and the seat didn't move with me. I ended up on my butt off the side of the rail in a uncomfortable position (at the least) and I could see where you could bruise a tailbone or wrench your back. I fixed it by taking some brake cleaner (any good cleaner would probably work) and spraying it on a cloth then on the rail. Everything worked great after that. I'll make it a routine to do this minor maintenance every once in awhile and probably unbolt the seat and thoroughly clean the wheels once a month too. I'd recommend this rowing machine to anyone looking for a inexpensive way to stay in shape year round.
Update: having used this for the last 8 months, I have to say that it has been great. It is easily quiet enough to row while watching television at a reasonable volume, and the action has mostly been smooth. There is a slight squeak sometimes depending on how I am sitting - slightly annoying or you can think of it as a reminder when you aren't sitting quite right and have bad form, haha. On my slick tile floor, the whole machine does slide a bit if you use a jerky motion, but if you have a smooth and steady stroke, then it's fine. Haven't gotten tired of it yet, and use it almost daily as part of a regimen that keeps my middle-aged paunch at bay (somewhat:-).
