This is the best investment that I’ve ever made in a piece of exercise equipment. It will literally last a lifetime. I was looking for a high quality indoor rowing machine, as it’s one of the best workouts for your entire body. I’m so glad that I not only purchased a Concept2, but that I opted to pay the extra cost for the Model E. Since the Model E is elevated to the same level as a regular chair, it’s much easier to get in and out of than the Model D. This is of particular importance if you have any issues with mobility or if you’re elderly. In my case, due to having had back surgery, it was essential that I purchased this model. It’s absolutely worth the extra cost. Since first using this rower on 04/13/2014 I’ve logged over 200,000 meters, which is close to 125 miles. The feel of the rower is exquisite. Since it’s made of such high quality materials, using it is all but effortless. The seat slides along the monorail in near total silence and the fan noise is minimal. I listen to music while rowing and find that the noise of the machine isn’t an issue at all. My routine is to use the rower for 1 hour a day, 5 days a week.
Great piece of equipment; great company!

I’m an above knee amputee. Turns out that rowing tears up the skin on my stump. But I called Concept 2 and spoke with a guy who told me what to do (row without my prosthetic leg). He even referred me to you tube videos of amputees rowing. I followed his advice and got a great workout! This is going to be a great form of exercise for me. Anyone who is interested in indoor rowing should go to Concept 2’s website. They have a wealth of information!
This Has To Be One Of The Best

I’m no expert on rowing machines but considering the cost I had to do my homework before making a decision as to what one to purchase. I looked at cheaper and even one feature of a TV show that I was seriously considering that had the hydro system and was made of wood. In the end I believed that this one was the better choice. First, the Elites extra height is well worth the extra cost. The next thing on my mind was, air or water. The drawback with water is it can leak and require some maintenance. My concern with noise had me wondering which one would be the winner. I don’t own that other water rower but I can say this one is smooth and much quieter than expected and doesn’t creat any problems in our household. I was concern about wood wearing or being made from wood stock that was not as strong or straight (warping from new growth wood) but since this rower is metal I have nothing to worry about there. The next thing that concern me was the difference in material that was used in the pulley system, one was made from synthetic webbing which could have been nylon to polyester which is the stronger. This rower uses a chain and is much heavier duty.

Amazing machine. Quiet, smooth, and easy to use. Fitness monitor is large and easy to read. The workout is great and I do not seem to have some of the after-effects from other regimens such as jogging or aerobic routines. I am older so the “E” version is better for me because it is easier to mount/dismount. It is a bit on the expensive side – $1200, but this thing should last for years. Over the years, I have purchased many pieces of exercise equipment and buying the higher-quality definitely pays off in the long run.

I’ve used the model D at the gym, so I know how well Concept rowers are built. I got the model E for my home, and I have to say it’s a step up. The quality is amazing, and I think the model E looks even better. I like the higher seat also. Can’t wait to use it each day.
Great Machine Reduced Pain in my Lower Back

I purchased the Concept 2 Model E. I read it sits higher than the Model D so I’m actually very happy I chose this over the Model D because I really like this being higher up. This product is 1) Easy to put together – It took me about 40 minutes working real slow. Instructions could be better but it was still pretty easy 2) It works as advertised 3) I’ve used it for about 3 weeks daily and it’s still working great. I will update later on durability. So this is the product description part of review. I used it for 3 weeks straight and while it looks simple and the workout seems easy and low intensity, I actually felt sore in places I didn’t think this would work out like my thighs and gluts. Use proper form and the faster you go the more resistance you will get. It gave me a great work out each time. I give this 5-stars and strongly do so because after 3 weeks of use I have slightly better endurance when I play basketball and also I’ve had a lingering lower back pain that wouldn’t go away for years and years. I’ve been to chiropractors, physical therapists, etc., and while the PT was very useful it didn’t work as well as this machine did for me.

Excellent product. Appreciate the 20″ seat height which helps those with limited ability to sit down lower on other machines. However, considering that I bought this machine because of its 20″ seat height, it would be nice if the company realized that those individuals that require assistance getting on and off of the machine, would have designed some sort of handle to use when you mount our dismount the machine. I am 6’1″ and even I have to swing my leg over the seat to sit and then get off. Without some sort of handle to grab onto when sitting or getting off, you can easily catch your leg on the seat/frame and potentially falling. I try fyi grab onto the frame holding the screen but it’s not easy. Please consider adding a small handle to help those get on or off.
What an amazing machine! Truly professional quality.. Far exceeded my expectations.

What an amazing machine!! I had been using the Concept II model D in a gym and decided I needed one for my home. After reading the reviews and thinking about the long term use of the rower I decided to spend an extra $200.00 and buy the model E. I am glad I purchased the model E but quality wise I am sure the model D is equal. Here’s my impression of this incredible machine. 1. I ordered from Amazon on a Saturday and received it the following Tuesday with Monday being a holiday. So- Free two business day Shipping in a box that weighed 100 pounds. I still cant believe or understand how Amazon does it. 2. The machine arrived in perfect condition, was extremely well packaged with clear, easy, to understand assembly instructions. Total time to unpack, assemble and start rowimg was around 30 minutes. I did not rush and read all the instructions. There were 8 threaded bolts needed to assemble with an included star wrench. Piece of cake. 3. What I love about this machine. The quality is workmanship is unquestionably some of the finest I have seen. I am an artist and have a pretty critical eye for details.
