extensive review and comparison of bowflex vs. powerblocks.
While I'm not taking a side, I thought it would be more helpful than just saying "those are junk, don't buy them because I said so".

GRRRR! I just pulled the trigger on an AWD Like New for $260.99 last week, arriving tomorrow!

I used Discover, so hopefully they will price adjust a "Like New" for a cheaper "New"... Unfortunately it hasn't posted to my Account yet because it shipped on Friday.

I have these things and love them. I just don't know how easy they will be to use without the stands. For anyone that has them with no stands do you have any issues changing the amount of weight?

I got them off awd a year or so ago with no stands and they work fine on my office floor. Having the stands would be nice just as a convenience factor but i dont find it necessary.

I had these and the plates came loose a few times. They weren't heavy enough for all of my workouts either.

I would suggest PowerBlocks over these. I know they cost about $20-$40 more (depending on where you get them) but you can always add extension kits to them down the road for about $50-$70 instead of buying a new set.

How easy is it to change the weight setting on the powerblocks? I wasn't aware of these until now. I have a set of the 552s at work and they're great because you can easily adjust them. I'm going to set up a deal alert for the powerblocks now Wink

I lift with powerblocks daily, the pin system makes it roughly 5 seconds to switch between weights. I love my U90 set

I'm seeing expansion kits at $130 for 20 more pounds.

IronMaster dumbbells are nice also

Lower price than powerblock but sturdier than powerblocks/selectechs

IronMaster are also quiet when working out. Powerblocks (including the u90) will make a bunch of clickclacking noise (plates rubbing on each other and adder weights wiggling everywhere). But ironmaster makes a bunch of noise when switching out the rods.

Assuming space isn't an issue
normal dumbbells > IronMaster = Powerblocks > spinlock dumbells > Selectech = Olympic dumbbell handles lol

Like IShortysl mentioned, it's not really a problem that these are on the floor. I just make sure that my form is good and my back is straight when I squat down to drop the dumbbells into their caddies or pick them back up.
