Below are the major brands of adjustable dumbbells that Amazon sells in the 50 pound range. I've listed them based on a combination of popularity and rating based on what I think are the best to least best, with the Bowflex SelectTechs (which I'll refer to as BST) at the top. I currently use the BST and I think it is the best adjustable dumbbell option right now, so the rest of my review will compare the PP445 to them.
1. Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair) 5 to 52.5 lbs in 2.5 pound increments
2. PowerBlock Classic Adjustable Dumbbell Set 5 to 45 lbs in 5 pound increments

Based on the aforementioned, I purchased the Universal Power Pak. The Universals have been great. You can set/adjust the weight on either side of each dumbbell, which is very convenient. They come with a stand, but you don't need to use the stand if you want to save space. You only need the trays the dumbbell rests in. The trays can sit on the floor, table, or mounted to the stand. I saw other reviews where some said they don't like the stand design because it doesn't use a pedestal. The stand design is great because it DOESN'T use a pedestal. The stand design allows you to more easily store stuff under it. Some other reviewer complained about the weight plates being noisy clanking together. I do not see this as a problem at all. They are quieter than the old school steel weight plates on a dumbbell hand bars I had been using. I hope this review helps others. It was very difficult for me to decide between the two types. I have been very happy with this purchase.
Bowflex-Pros 1.-Look cool 2.-2.5 weight increments at low rates Cons-1.-Cost 2. Occasionally "stick" 3. Need to turn both ends to adjust weights
Universal 445-Pros 1. Come with stand 2. Only turn one end which makes changing weight easier and quicker 3. Less physcial plates so one less plate to "tetris" in 4. Price Cons-1. Adjust in 5 increments (I have not found an issue though) 2. Weights do shift-they are secure they just slide back and forth (I have gotten used to)
I am happy with the Universal 445's and am glad I purchased rather than Bowflex, based on price and quicker weight adjusting. They also look cooler then in the pictures. The 5lb increments is fine for me, since I had been jumping like 10lbs with standard dumbbells.
The only con I can think of is the shifting weight, which I could imagine drives some people nuts. Yes the weights shift, but that are still secure and they aren't going to fall off, I have confidence to do lifts with them over my head, face or crotch.
I placed my stand on a sheet of 3/4" plywood, cut to the size of the base of the stand, that is mounted on heavy casters so that I can roll the entire weight setup to where I need it very effortlessly.
At first I was worried about not having increments smaller than 5 lb weight changes, but find that by the time I feel a need for more weight, I would always increase by 5 or more lbs anyway. Having smaller increments (like 2.5 lbs the bowflex do) would be a wasted feature for me.
All in all, I am very happy with the purchase of these and recommend them to all I talk to.
Just completed P90X and starting on my second go-round of great workout program!!! These weights have worked flawlessly and I am totally glad that I got these. I am able to keep my workouts moving along at an uninterrupted pace, which keeps the heart rate up, the muscles burning and the blood pumping!! I amm sooo impressed with these that I am buying a second set so that my son can workout along with me. I feel that these are the best-bang-for-the-buck adjustable weight sets there are. Only thing I find that I wish for at this point of my training is more weight!!! I wish they made a set with more weight........ I would totally buy it this time around!!

They work great and only negative is they are loud since they click a lot. Also, since they are bulky, doing chest press with them doesn't provide a higher lift.Published 3 days ago by Q
The idea behind the weight system is good, but the delivery is so-so. It's nice to have the dial to change weights. The stand is OK but could be made better. Read morePublished 13 days ago by LloydH
