3.0 out of 5 stars | EDIT: PLEASE EVERYONE READ THIS--- (people think they break, they work)
Style: Bowflex ST 552 Dumbbell (pair)
EDIT: Hey everyone, PLEASE read this if you're buying these. I thought mine were broken out of the box like so many others. For whatever reason I decided to actually call the manufacturer or in my case the distributor Nautilus (Amazon has a button that says get product support). I was frustrated and ABOUT to just return them, but they actually taught me that them locking up out of the box is a safety feature. They don't tell you this, they should, I have no idea why, but I went through a few minute unlocking process and now they seem to work great. I'm actually happy now. Essentially you turn them upside down with all parts attached to the base, smack the base with your hand and turn them to 5lbs, after smacking upside down they should release. Take the plates out after pressing a hidden release button on the bottom of the dumbbell, inspect, and place the plates back in the base. Place the handle back in the base and test each weight. It worked for me. Yes, it's plastic inside but that is some sturdy plastic I honestly suspect it should work for a good amount of time and apparently they come with a 2 year parts warranty. If you wouldn't mind, upvote this to save time and frustration from all the others who thought it was broken out of the box. The distributors number is 1-800-605-3369, they answered after about a 4 minute hold with me. Below is my old review that is no longer relevant. They really need some unlock instructions in the box. I've adjusted to 3 stars because of the lack of instructions lol. OLD REVIEW: I'm a smart user and a gym user, so this isn't user error. I've never owned weights like these, I'll probably still buy some just to save space but unfortunately these ones don't work, straight out of the box which surprised me because I assume Bowflex is a good reputable name. I'm just getting on now to contact Amazon on fixing this. I've had probably 6-7 friends come over who thought they could get it to work but nope, they all realized it's actually not working either. Only one of the dumbbells doesn't work, the other one does like half the time. We lined the numbers up correctly and everything. Come to think of it, the fact that both of these are either partly faulty or completely faulty makes me think it's a bad batch or this isn't a good brand for these.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Bowflex, Ironmaster or Power Block?
Style: Bowflex ST 552 Dumbbell (pair)
I purchased a set of 552's earlier in the year when they were on sale for just over $200. I have had Power Blocks in the past and liked them but my wife hated having her hand inside the block and she was going to use this set of adjustable dumbbells as well. I ended up getting these and the stand and so far they work great but i have a few concerns. Essentially it is a mostly plastic design. We are very good to our home gym equipment, no dropping weights or throwing around but they feel like they are going to have a limited lifespan. I may be wrong but there are a fair number of reviews that stated they had problems. In addition, the other thing i don't particularly like is the wobbly nature of the plates on the dumbbells while you are working out. They do move a fair amount. Its not a big deal but definitely different then a solid dumbbell. For the good, the grip is very comfortable and you can change them very rapidly if you are doing circuits that require you to change the weights frequently. They come in and out of the weight stack pretty easily but i tend to do it very cautiously as that seems to be one of the actions that could damage the catch mechanism if forced. About a month after i bought these I was scanning Craigslist for some other equipment and saw a pair of barely used Ironmaster Adjustable Dumbbells for sale locally. During the month that i owned the 552's it also became clear that i needed to be able to go to at least 75 lbs. I bought the Ironmasters and they are an entirely different level of product (but they come at a different level of price as well). The Ironmasters come with a lifetime warranty and when you adjust them tightly they feel like a solid dumbbell. There is no comparison. Where they fall behind the 552's is in the ease of adjusting the weight. Now that i have had them for a bit i can change two dumbbells in about 45 seconds but the same adjustment on the 552's takes about 5 seconds. That's the only negative on the Ironmasters. I know those are a lifetime purchase. We are keeping both for now and it has worked out well. We tend to use the Ironmasters for heavier sets or if we are not doing circuits that require quick changes and use the 552's for lighter sets or circuits. My wife and i work out together very frequently and do a lot of circuits so two sets of dumbbells actually makes sense. What i think it really comes down to is what you are looking for in terms of price point and longevity. I have been working out at a gym consistently for 30 years now and just decided to build a home gym. I am 52 and wanted equipment that is gonna stay with me until i just cant do it anymore. In that case the Ironmasters are the right choice. If you are new to working out or setting up a home gym and are not sure you are going to stick with an exercise program its probably hard to justify double the money for the Ironmasters and the Bowflex 552's would be a great place to start. Just go easy on them and hopefully they will last. I would also strongly consider Power Blocks. They are solid and fast to change. Kind of the best of both worlds but some people do not like the design of the hand inside the block position. Hope that helps if you are looking at the big three options.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Barely used but broke anyway
Style: Bowflex ST 552 Dumbbell (pair)
The media could not be loaded. I only used this a few times. One of the two dumbbells is stuck with one of the “disks”/ weights on it. It doesn’t twist so I can not remove or add any weights. So unusable. If anyone has any tricks to get it twisting again let me know. I don’t want to spend tons of money on shipping to use the warranty

3.0 out of 5 stars | Going rate is $500. Over 30% of going rate is price gouging.
Style: Bowflex ST 552 Dumbbell (pair)
I bought a pair if these. The handle cracked on the one weight and 2 of the weight settings no longer work. The weights just fall off now. Also, I bought the Selecttwch 552 models for under $500. I called Bowflex and these should be available again in June or July of this year for around that price. 30% over the going rate is price gouging. Do the math if these are for sale at $1500.00 it does not take a rocket scientist to see this. A reasonable and prudent person would see this is breaking the law. These items should be pulled or banned for sale for exploiting the pandemic.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Broke after 8 months - Unable to contact seller for replacement
Style: Bowflex ST 552 Dumbbell (pair)
Like the dumbbells but they have broken with normal/recommended usage after only 8 months. One of the 2 dumbbells not longer rotates and a black plastic piece broke off. I'm trying to contact seller to see if I can get a replacement dumbbell but finding it impossible to contact the seller. I'm disappointed considering the set is now worthless and these were not cheap. If anyone knows how to contact the seller please let me know.
