Stamina InMotion Rower is an entry-level, basic, home rowing machine. It is cheap, relatively strong, and durable and provides a trainee an option for a rather good rowing exercise.
If you like or need good cardio exercise at home, but you don't need 'water-like' rowing exercise, don't need all the advanced features that larger and more expensive rowers have, consider Stamina InMotion Rower as your home rower.

Stamina 35-0123 InMotion Rower Features and Specifications
Stamina 35-0123 InMotion Rower features simple but sturdy solid steel construction.
The central beam acts as a rowing rail and it supports the rowing arm/bar with foam hand grips and InMotion monitor, rowing piston, pivoting footplates, and front and rear rower legs.
The rowing piston has five different positions, providing five different levels of resistance - resistance levels can be changed relatively quickly, but the system could be simpler and faster.
The stitched seat is comfortable, but if You never rowed before, use a low resistance setting and don't row for more than 10-15 minutes without a break. After You get used to rowing and sitting on the rower seat, feel free to go for longer cardio sessions.
Pivoting footplates with adjustable closures are sturdy, and they keep the feet firmly.
Single button (not counting the Reset button) InMotion monitor is intuitive and easy to use.
Personally, I don't like the fact that it is positioned on the top of the rowing arm and it is not visible all the time during rowing. The monitor presents basic information like strokes per minute, time, and calories burned. A calorie counter is not the most accurate one, but it can help in monitoring your progress.
Stamina InMotion Rower is easy to store - it doesn't fold, but it is light, and the users can simply lift it.
Note: if you have small children or pets, don't let them play around the stored rower. If pushed with sufficient force, it can fall down and hurt somebody or damage something. The total weight of the rower is 27 pounds (~12.2 kg), and if it falls down, it can hit really hard.
Assembled dimensions of the unit are (L x W x H) 56.6 x 19 x 23.5 inches (144 x 48.5 x 60 cm).
The unit is easy to assemble, just follow the instructions in the manual.
Note: InMotion monitor operates using a single AA battery, and the battery is (often) not included.
From the pin to the pin on the rowing rail, there is 128 inches (~71 cm) - enough space so that even taller people can row on this machine if their rowing technique and weight allow them to row.
During rowing, the machine is rather quiet, and one can row and listen to music on TV or a computer with no need to increase the volume.
Long Story Short: Stamina 35-0123 InMotion Rower is a simple, sturdy, very basic home rower, and it is one of the best rowers in its price class.
It lacks many features commonly found on larger, heavier, and more expensive rowers, and those are the reasons why it is so popular among users - if You want to row, just sit on the unit and start rowing.
After some adjustment time, this rower enables the user to burn plenty of calories and increase strength and stamina.
