Love it

Generally very impressed. Assembling the R-400 is pretty easy and took about an hour all told. The machine is quite large, so isn't ideal for a smaller household. It doesn't fold up but can be stored on its end and has wheels to maneuver around (though they are fixed, which can be a bit of a pain, when trying to turn the machine). The R-400 computer and screen give you a lot of different options, from manual, program and race, you can set different amount of resistance and length of row. This makes using the rowing machine more interesting to use. It is powered though the mains, so this is something that should be considered when buying. The seat is comfortable and as is the rowing position. there are vents to allow air to hit you if you want when rowing. The R-400 is relatively quiet, certainly quieter than most air rowers, I have used. Generally I am impressed but there are a couple of niggles. The foot rests are not as comfortable as I would have liked and the seat does stick a little, though this hasn't been a big issue. A very good rower for the price but not quite prefect.

After sometime trying to find a rowing machine that had a user weight limit to suit myself,i finally come across sweatband,just had it delivered the guys from panther were very polite and nothing was a problem, setting the rowing machine up took me about 45mins to build it was very easy to do,of course once built had to try it out I could not believe how quiet it was and the seat moved so smoothly on the rails,absolutely pleased with this purchase gonna get plenty of fun time with this great piece of kit. Would definitely recommend this r-400 machine to anyone looking for a rowing machine,even the wife and kids had to have a go on it and my wife even said it was better than the ones in her gym good work guys keep it up

I'm a tall bloke so I needed something with adequate sizing that would allow me to have a decent workout. This ticked all the boxes and since I've owned it , I have tried to use it nearly everyday! Great to use first thing in the morning - fasted cardio is the best way to burn fat and help you lose a bit of weight.

I have owned the rower for a month now and it has been used virtually every day! Great value for money, very stable and durable with lots of workout pre-sets. Really happy with my purchase!

Really impressive rower , very similar to what you use at the gym but for a fraction of the price.

The R-400 rowing machine is a very challenging and enjoyable way of exercising. I bought it to improve my general fitness and find rowing the perfect exercise for weight loss and back strengthening. I usually go for distance defined workouts and I’m quite impressed with the resistance offered by R-400. Also the seat of the machine slides smoothly and the frame feels solid and stable in comparison to my old machine. The electronic display of the R-400 is also a big advantage for the price. I’m giving it top marks!

We decided to buy a rowing machine to improve our fitness levels. The R400 has a good tension range and also provides a good selection of workout choices within its pre-set programmes. We were pleasantly surprised at the quietness of the machine and pleased with its smoothness, Also, for such a substantial machine, it's actually quite easy to move it around to put away when not in use!

The R-400 has been a good addition to our home gym. We purchased it to improve our general fitness and cardio performance and for this purpose the R-400 works well. It seems well-constructed and provides a comfortable workout position with the seat gliding very smoothly on the rail. The R-400 rower is certainly worth the money.

I’ve used many different types of gym equipment over the last few years, but have never bought a rowing machine before. I’m tall and slightly overweight, so I wanted a sturdy piece of equipment that would enable me to have a good workout. The R-400 has exceeded all my expectations and I’m hugely impressed by its functionality. Not only does it operate very smoothly, but it also feels rock solid and stable when rowing on it and has an excellent resistance range. I highly recommend this DKN rowing machine!

I’m new to rowing machines and have found that the R-400 meets all my needs in a rower! First of all, it wasn’t hard to put the parts together, though an extra pair of hands during assembly makes it much easier. The machine itself seems strong and durable - the ramp feels really sturdy while in use and the seat moves very smoothly. The console is straightforward and makes it easy to follow my workouts on the screen. Overall, I'm happy with the product and for the price I think it was a good choice.
