Concept II - bullet proof hence used widely in health clubs - should be able to pick one up for a grand. Also worth considering 2nd hand as they are, as I say, bullet proof.

rowers

water rower is the way ahead!, concept 2 looks like a piece of meccano;
ok, i'm being harsh; i looked into it in a big way before buying a number of years ago; and came down to the concept 2 and the water rower, both similar price, in the end, do you have somewhere to leave it out ready to use, cos if you dont then you wont use it, if you do then it doesnt matter which one, our space was limited, and the water rower you can lift up on end and it sits against a wall and doesnt look too out of place, but is easy to put back in use, and the fishtank and paddles just kind of sealed it, as opposed to the hissing of air.
think what is it you want to do with it, will you use it if you have to 'build' it each time you want to use it,
