Nice, smooth rowing machine from MI on 06/16/2015 – Verified Buyer
Delivered super fast, had problems with first machine, Wayfair reacted professional and fast, replaced first unit. More than happy with this rowing machine, have been looking and looking for right one finally decided to go with Newport. Solid workout, nice addition to my recumbent stationary bike. I am stocky, 250 pounder, started with 45 minutes nice and slow, already up to 60 min (resistance at high) @29 strokes per min. after week or so. Some other reviewers did note there is not enough resistance but if you do your rowing technique correct, you will have more than enough of work out. Every muscle will hurt. Legs, thighs, lower back, shoulders, front abs, arms. Machine is quiet, I do watch TV as I exercise, no problem there. More than happy with purchase. All is left is to pull that cord hard.

Pros: Slick, high quality, easy assembly, good work out and it is RED in color not black or dark gray like most exercise equipment out here.
Cons: None so far, first unit was defective but Wayfair took care of that

Still Early from Lexington, KY on 08/25/2015 – Verified Buyer
All of this review is based off of initial impression and less than a week of use, therefore I can't make any claims of durability or access to replacement parts, etc. A comprehensive review would obviously require more time of use. That being said, it is exactly what I expected. I took a lot of time to research what I was buying before I did and so far the machine has performed amazing.
First off, I received it in a day. One. I bought it on a Thursday and it was at my house on Friday. I have no idea what type of shipping voodoo Wayfair is caught up in, but it was awesome and totally exceeded expectation.
It arrived in perfect condition, 2 boxes. It came with touch up paint though I didn't require any. I had everything assembled and adjusted in less than 20 minutes. The rower is well built and solid. Rowing action is smooth the sound of rushing water is pretty cool. I thought that was going to be just a novelty feature and it is...but it's a totally cool one. I wouldn't recommend rowing barefoot, the hard plastic foot rest rubs on the heels.

Pros: Easy Assembly, Well-Built, Smooth Rowing
Cons: None Yet

Love! Buy this from Wayfair! from Irving, TX on 04/14/2015 – Verified Buyer
I am so happy with this purchase from Wayfair! I purchased this for $649. It came with FREE 2 day shipping and I was thrilled! It arrived in two separate boxes and was mostly assembled. There were instructions (ikea style) included but the hard parts were already done for you. I put it together alone in about an hour and that was start to finish. Easy! It looks great, gives a great workout, makes this soothing sound and let's your mind wonder to the water. I haven't figured out how to sync my heart rate monitor to the machine, but it is possible. I love this purchase! Exactly 2 weeks later I saw that this was now selling for $599. I contacted Wayfair via email and within hours I had a response refunding my card for the difference. Unbeatable customer service. Always look to wayfair!

As described from Olive Branch, MS on 03/17/2015 – Verified Buyer
I at first was worried about being 6'4" and just being able to fit. On top of that knowing my wife would have to readjust for her midget feet. We have not had a problem and love it! It came in without a scratch and assembly took less than half an hour. As far as functionality, it is a very smooth row without any catching or jerking.
I do have one con, but it won't affect my rating because Wayfair settled the issue(even though it took 5 days to settle). It was listed for a certain price on Wayfair, and a little bit higher elsewhere like Costco. I received a shipping confirmation with no tracking number. After a few days without a number or coming home to magically seeing it at my door, I had to call them instead of them calling me. It wasn't backordered BUT the price had gone up $647!!! It took them two days to decide to honor my purchase, which they did. Great buy!!!

Such a wonderful exercise machine! from Humble, TX on 10/18/2015 – Verified Buyer
We all at home have been trying to exercise al least 3 days a week, however, our work and school schedules are too hectic and long some days. We were looking for some kind of exercise equipment that is not boring as our stationary bike or as high impact as our treadmill ; we ended up ordering our rowing machine and this has been the best decision ever! This machine allows us to exercise without hurting our joints or heels and we happily noticed how many muscles are active during the sesion; it is absolutely wonderful! By the way, we got our machine before the promised delivery date and the installation was so easy that my teenager son was able to complete it in less than 30 minutes, all on his own.

Pros: Very easy assembly, it can be kept vertical when not in nuse, easy to transport
Cons: It can cause addiction to exercise :D

Great Machine!! Definately Recommend. from Knoxville, TN on 05/12/2015 – Verified Buyer
I searched for about a month both online and on Craigslist to find a Rower with such high ratings and an excellent price. The price on this one was right and the reviews were very complimentary. Some didnt like the color (not a reason to give a lower rating, it is obviously RED). There were a few mentions of resistance could be higher and I agree. I wish there was more resistance. However, after just a few minutes of rowing the resistance seems to be just right for me. This machine is well built and shorter in length than other rowers which I like. I am only 6ft Tall but someone a few inches taller could easily use this machine.

Pros: Great Value, Well Built,
Cons: Not quite enough resistance if you are an experienced rower.

Well built basic rower. from Santa Clarita, CA on 07/28/2015 – Verified Buyer
I am very satisfied with the ordering and shipment processes , price and product quality. Ordering was simple and efficient. Shipment was within the shipment window promised. Product was in excellent condition when it arrived. Assembly was simple with very good instructions. I have used this extensively...and I already feel my core strengthening up significantly...and I may even give Kayaking a try soon. :) I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because I felt that digital display was rather cheap and difficult (for me) to read. But it is useful anyway for tracking your distance, time, etc.

Pros: soldily built, simple design, easy to use
Cons: Digital display is cheaply made, and can be difficult to tread

Love this rower! from Lakewood, CA on 09/11/2015 – Verified Buyer
Quick and easy order and delivery. Simple set up, took about 30 minutes.

I am by no means an experienced indoor rower, but this machine is excellent, smooth operation and a good workout. When I first started, I felt like there wasn't very much resistance, but after 15 minutes of rowing, I realized that the resistance was more than adequate.

My biggest concern was if the machine was large enough for me and I am 6'+ and there is still plenty of room when my legs are fully extended.

If you are experienced indoor rower, you are probably looking for a more advanced machine, but if you are just looking for a good workout at home, I highly recommend this machine. Plus, the swoosh of the water as you row is meditative!!

Best water rower for the price! from Florida on 04/21/2015 – Verified Buyer
This rower is wonderful! Not only is it a water rower, but the lowest priced one so far. The quality exceeds the price! For those who complain that there is not of lot of resistance, remember that rowing is for endurance and this machine definitely works out the body. It came on time, was easy to put together and is easy to move if we need to. Easy to move in front of the TV for a workout during a show or roll away when guests come over. We are beyond happy with this and are glad we chose this one over the $1000 rowers.

Pros: Value, easy to put together, easy to move, great workout, fast shipping
Cons: None

New to rowing from New Prague, MN on 11/14/2015 – Verified Buyer
I'm new to rowing and I am liking it. I don't really have much experience to give an thorough review but I have been using this machine for over a month and I love it's smooth operation, water sound and overall body workout. I find that even on the hardest setting of 4 it is easy and smooth but if you keep going for 15 or 20 minutes it does give a great workout. I strive for over 35 strokes per minute for 30 minutes and hoping to work up to 1 hour. The little cpu has many data points so pick what you like to measure and keep trying to improve. The quality and structure of this machine is very good. I like red so it also appeals to me and add some personality to my exercise equipment.

Pros: good quality, smooh operating, multiple data points to measure from
