Rated 4 out of 5 by mathchick I enjoy it, but it's not for short people!
I have had this machine for about 4 months now and am glad that I purchased it. I couldn't decide between a recumbent bike and a rower, so this was the perfect compromise. As others have said, it's not a perfect (or typical) rower. But it suits my needs since I don't go out rowing in an actual boat EVER. I just wanted to be able to get a full-body workout, and it serves that purpose nicely.
I use the bike more than the rower, and I started on the lowest setting. I was incredibly out of shape and will tell you that the lowest setting BURNED my thighs (which was good). I still haven't made it past level 4, and I only do that for a short portion of my workout.
One caveat: I can't imagine anyone under 5'3" being able to use the bike portion of this machine. I am 5'5", although I have a long torso and short-ish legs (my legs are probably more typical of someone 5'3"-5'4"), and at the closest seat setting, my feet JUST reach the bike pedals. (The rower foot holders are closer to the seat so you could maybe still use that portion.)
My husband and I put it together in exactly 1 hour. It was quite easy, but I would suggest two people if possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ValB So far, so good
We had to return the first one as the box was very damaged and what we could see of the rower from the holes in the box was dinged and scratched. The second rower showed up, although there is a scratch on it, we are otherwise very satisfied. Good machine, a bit pricey, but the two-in-one is great. We have only had it for a few weeks though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ed42 Basic machine is good.
Seat is uncomfortable and tend to slide a bit. Electronics are pathetic, pulse shorts our and resets other electronics. Only solution was to disconnect

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sher Uncomfortable Seat
The seat is very uncomfortable so I can't use it for the lengths of time I would like to as it hurts my lower back. I have tried placing a pillow behind me and it helps a bit but still not enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DickieP15 Avari Ecumbent bike- Love it!!
I received this as a Christmas gift from my wife, began using it right away and within one month I have lost over 25 lbs and feel great. I would suggest or recommend this bike to anyone. You can go at your own pace or increase the intensity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aggie Excellent recumbent rower and bike
I bought this about a month ago and I am happy I did. I am in my 70's and this just gave me a jump start to become more active.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seigafolava Awesome purchase
I was skeptical when purchasing this rower but it has been a very good choice. Pretty stable considering my size. As I am losing some weight from the usage I have come to enjoy it more and more. Very good product.
