This is a magnetic resistance rower, the concept is air. I haven't used this one, but after using a concept, magnetic mechanisms are pretty hard to tolerate. This rower is midrange at best, whereas the concept is arguably the top of the range. The concept is better built and is much easier to find parts for and repair in the unlikely event it breaks out of warranty. But yes, it is significantly more expensive.

Also, from what I see, the regular price on these is between 500-600. So this price is good, but not great..

I'm a rowing snob (rowed crew competitively for 5 years). Here's my experience with rowing machines.

Concept2 is the industry standard for build quality, durability, track record, resale value etc. I picked up a lightly used model D ten years ago for $800. Nothing on it has worn out and I could sell it today for as much as I paid. The C2's air resistance provides the most challenging workout of the rowers I've tried.

My gym has the LifeFitness Row GX, a $2000 machine with water resistance. It is not as sturdy as the C2 and the dimensions are smaller BUT the spinning water feels much closer to actual rowing. The way the resistance kicks in and tapers is a better rowing experience. It doesn't match the C2's difficulty -- I can row a lot longer on the LifeFitness with the same effort. But it's a machine I would definitely recommend for average sized people with lots of money. Taller people may feel a bit cramped.

The gym briefly had a magnetic rower whose main feature was a fancy video screen. It was a huge step down in every way except the screen, which didn't work right half the time anyway. They got rid of it within a year. Good riddance.

Of these categories the ProForm seems closest to the one nobody used at the gym. Magnetic resistance doesn't quite feel like rowing. However, if it gets you working out it can still help build core, legs, shoulders and cardio, so it's much better than nothing and perhaps good enough for most people.

A few things to keep in mind:

- Walmart's recent price was $568, not $999. Sub $400 is still a nice deal but not earth shattering.

- The main consideration is whether you'll actually use the thing. Not everyone is a rowing snob like me, but I saw how the machine with the better rowing experience got used all the time while the fancy video screen was always vacant. So go for the best rowing experience you can afford. This ProForm is on the lower end of both scales, which is fine for many people. For others, watching for a used C2 may be the better choice.

- It's worth looking up videos on rowing technique and revisiting them from time to time to see what you can improve. Technique is important to build the right muscle groups, avoid injury and give yourself the best workout. With good form I'm sure you can get a proper workout on the Walmart rower. If that's what you can afford for now, go for it!

The Costco one doesn't hold tablets. It includes a screen that literally doesn't turn off until you unplug it. Ifit is overpriced so this is a better product given you can use YouTube videos etc

Got one. The only issue is finding space for it. But I didn't want to have to think about how to deal with that while this sells out. Buy now, think later.

If I hadn't already ordered another tower over the weekend I would have jumped on this. Not worth the expense to try to return the other one. 🙁
