Rated 5 out of 5 by danielw5536 Affordable Way to Own Compete Dumbbell Set
I've owned these dumbbells for about three weeks, so I can't speak to their longevity. They work exactly as advetised. Easy to switch between weights. At times can be minimally difficult to place back in holder, but a slight jiggle does the trick. I would much rather own a complete set of hex dumbbells, but at less than 1/3 the price, it's hard to beat. I purchased these on a 20% off sale plus free shipping, so my would be $750 price was about $475.

I've been using these for about 6 months now, and I think they're great. I don't find them awkward or bulky. When I got them there was an issue with one of the locking mechanisms, but Bowflex sent me a replacement with no hassle. Kind of expensive, but a great buy if you don't have room for a whole rack of dumbbells. If you buy them, definitely consider getting the stand that holds them so you're not stuck picking them up off the floor (which I did for about a week, then got tired of it and bought the stand).

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarineWifey Great Buy
Bought these for my Husband-- tried them out myself and they're great. It replaces so many sets of individual weights & is a space saver. Havent had any complaints or problems with them... Easy to switch the weight on each dumbbell.They're pretty heavy to move around, including the weights--(for a girl anyways)Overall Great Buy--pricey but worth it if you hate driving to the gym & will actually use them

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ron W some pros and cons
They are physically large and bulky. Quite long also. A bit uncomfortable doing curls because they bang together due to length as you are going up with them. Had 5-50 set of hex and they were more compact and quicker to use but these go up to 90 and that is way expensive with individual hex set. Loading and unloading of weights is sticky sometimes so you might load them and give a lift and have correct amount on one side but be pulling on 90 lbs. with the other as the whole set sticks together. Due to design and locking mechanism, the instructions are adamant about not dropping them. Seem okay for what I need,
