Not the greatest quality

Model Number: 428243
"I ordered this product through Costco.com. It's a relatively new product that I was willing to try because of how Costco allows home trial and return to a warehouse if you are unhappy. I have not seen this product in any stores, and without that guarantee I would have hesitated to order it.
I was excited about the product, which is well-designed on the whole. Unfortunately, I would say the build quality was lacking.
At this level in the market, I don't expect stunning perfection. However, there were some very sloppy welds on the bench, including some that were off-center on the leg-lift assembly, making it lift slightly off-kilter.
Lots of excess metal bits/flashing caught in the finish, which was also less than stellar. Some of the welds were not only sloppy-looking, but in a couple of places had burned through the sheet metal; though the weld was still holding the pieces together, I couldn't help but wonder if it would be an issue later.
Aside from the off-kilter leg-lift assembly, the product functioned as I expected, though the upholstered bench/backrest is not very wide (compared with other weight benches I have looked at). If details/finish aren't large concerns for you, and you are ok with a very skinny bench/backrest, it may be worth a try.
Kudos to Costco for allowing me to return it to a warehouse, without having to pack everything up *exactly* as it arrived."

not happy with purchase

"I told my husband I wanted this for Christmas also. But when I got it I was disappointed. I felt that the weights are too bulky and more suited to a man. The bench was ok."

Love it....

Pros: number of positons that bench has...
Cons: haven't found one yet...
"My husband bought this for me for Christmas...Yes, I did actually give him the idea. Love the fact that the weights are basically one set & compact. Also, like the number of excercises you can do as the bench has a multitude of different positions. The added bonus is I love the color...."
