Good stuff: Quiet, light, easy to adjust, no cords, no gas, no smell. The kids actually think it is fun to push around. I really don't mind pushing this thing around once a week where I hated getting my old corded model out.
Bad stuff: Where there is taller grass (5"+) it often just flattens it. It also does not cut thicker grass at all. One could look at that as a positive because the crab grass now sticks out above the rest of the grass and you can pull it. Creeping grasses (the kinds the grow sideways first) will not get cut at all. I guess that's where the "suction" of a high speed mower will pull these blades up to get wacked. Or maybe I just have a lousy yard. It's certainly no putting greeen.
All in all I am happy with this purchase, but like all mowers it is not perfect and know its limitations.
I am faster with this than when I used my power mower. It is also great to leave the clipings on the ground. My grass looked better in two weeks.
I have a 4,000 sq ft lawn and I can more in two diecrtions faster then one with my power mower.
Machine construction: They advertise that the blades only need sharpening every 7-10 years, but I don't think the machine itself will last anywhere that long. The handle, tightened with thumb screws, is flimsy and rattles. The blades turn silently, yes, but the whole mower clatters along like a noisy metal toy wagon.
Performance: My lawn is "average," mainly a midwest bluegrass mix, both thin and thick areas. At the 2-3" height settings, it just randomly skips a lot of grass, like a squirmy kid's haircut. I chose this model because it could be set at close to the recommended 3" but it just doesn't cut the grass there. It does cut more at 1.5 inches, but still skips a lot. I went over the lawn 2 and in some places 3 times, and spent a lot of time doing back and forth chopping, still without much satisfaction. Good exercise, but I can do that with a cheap mower.
Before making the decision to return it, I went to the local home improvement center and got a Great States 18"reel mower that DOES cut the lawn, at 2.5", and cuts MUCH more consistently than the Sunlawn. Being of more sturdy construction, it is also quieter and I only had to make one pass in most areas. And, it was on sale for $79. This one, I'll keep.
Returning the Sunlawn thru Amazon was quick and easy, and free, like the free shipping I got in the first place.

I purchased the Sunlawn 16" Reel Mower at the end of the mowing season and was only able to use it a few times but was very happy with the performance. Read morePublished on December 7, 2007 by S. Stiver
We are very disappointed with Sunlawn's MM-2 (manual reel mower) performance and their level of customer service. We wish we would have purchased a different brand of reel mower. Read morePublished on October 1, 2007 by Smith2
