The Merax Magnetic Rower Folding Rowing Machine is a compact and reasonably priced erg for the beginner and casual rower–but not for the hardcore rower.

Hefty and durable, it operates smoothly and quietly for a good indoor workout.

What’s good?

The Merax Magnetic Rower Folding Rowing Machine is one of the few models we’ve encountered where users actually like the “firm” and “comfortable” seat.

The padded and upholstered seat runs along a 15°-angled rail, which also is fairly unique.

People describe assembly as “fairly easy.” To see an actual customer unbox, assemble, use, and fold up this rowing machine, watch this detailed demonstration video.

What’s not so good?

The main complaint of the Merax Magnetic Rower Folding Rowing Machine is the railing may be too short for someone taller than 5’10”. We did find two tall reviewers (6’0” and 6’3”) who fit the rower comfortably.

The 6’3”er, however, admits to taking off the rubber stop at end of the rail to give him another inch to straighten his legs. A 6’1”-tall user can’t extend his legs more than halfway.

And

The LCD monitor displays time, live second-by-second rowing count, calories, and total rowing count.

Unfortunately, it’s small, positioned low, not backlit, and for some, didn’t come with instructions.
