I nearly didn’t post the Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 Rowing Machine because the most critical review said :-‘ I usually find the reviews to be really helpful here and have never felt compelled to complain about a product but this machine is just too big for me. I’m 5’4″ and wear a 7 1/2 shoe, my feet absolutely will not stay in the pedals. My knees felt stressed and painful after using the machine for a few minutes and my knee constantly hit the middle track. No matter what I do I cannot seem to get this machine to work well with me.’
But when I looked at the replies to this comment one reply said it all :-‘ My wife is about your size – she wears sneakers and has no problems with her feet coming out of the pedals. Boarding shoes esp are a great fit. In order to use the machine properly you have to use it for at least 3 minutes to get into a back and forth rythmn. If you’re hitting yourself with the machine, you aren’t using it properly or maybe this isn’t the right type of exercise equipment for your abilities. I would recommend watching rowing in action or put in the instruction dvd before giving up the rowing machine though – these machines produce very quick and sculpted results.’ HTH
So I felt that as there were 144 x 5star reviews, and 162 x 4 star reviews and that Amazon had given the product 4 stars I felt that that was good enough. And one customer actually made a video of him using the machine as he couldn’t find a product video on you tube. But since then videos have been made and when I watched the You Tube video the machine looked as good as the other machine I posted.

“Great Rower For The Money”
