I find it is not great for my back after about 12-15 minutes on a C2. Haven't had surgery, but have some disc desiccation and a couple small osteophytes. After a few months with rowing added in, I switched back to only free weights to work full body/the posterior chain and just keep the rep count down.

Definitely ask your orthopedics doctor, not just strangers on the internet, before pushing it!

Avoid. While a good deal they make garbage. Had their top end Eliptical that died inside of three months. They apparently got tired of sending the repair man and sent another entire Eliptical. It was very evident it was redesigned with much thinner metal and was physically smaller despite being the same model. Shocker, right outside of warranty it died as well. I'll never buy another product of their. There are only two rowers you could consider, Conecpt2 or Waterrower. I bought a City Row branded waterpower but you can buy a plain Jane directily from them for as low as $900. It's wood and plastic, nothing to break. Take care of it and it will last decades. No magnetic resistance crap to break on you. Also can check Facebook or Craigs list for used ones in your area.
I have direct experience with the C2, Xebex 3.0 and RW200/500.

A C2 and Xebex 2.0 or 3.0 are the most comparable for price, performance, value and longevity. My RW500 lasted exactly 15 minutes before the magnetic resistance disc failed. It took me 6 weeks to return it. NordicTrack was a nightmare to deal with.

If you are willing to spend $600, I would highly consider t he Xebex 2.0 non-smart connect for $749. At the $1k range, a C2 is the best you're going to get with the Xebex 3.0 not far behind.

lastly, if you are not in that budget, the sub $500 rowers are all garbage, even for the most recreational/intermittent user. The money would be better spent on an airbike if you want maximum cardio for dollar.

I have no idea. No rower would consider using anything but a Concept2.
If you want something cheap just for exercise, you can always find something used for 5 minutes on CL for less than this.

Am I the only person who doesn't like the concept2? It's likely user error, but my only experience with them (twice on different occasions/locations) has been awful. The chain would jump or skip every couple of pulls. It was too distracting to "get lost" in the workout.

I have a buddy who uses the Concept2 and said no other brand is comparable to it. That's the one you want if you row daily and want to make it part of your daily routine.

It's a great machine, no doubt. If you're training to improve your real world rowing then it's what you want.

That said, there are some really good alternatives. The WaterRower is an obvious alternative. A fantastic machine for a casual user; very quiet and soothing, belt driven and a solid and attractive build. This machine can easily be a part of your daily routine for many many years.
