I used to only use functional trainers at gyms as they are extremely versatile. This unit is as smooth as the high end gym functional trainers. Actually it is smoother than a lot of them. You can tell it is for home use, as the steel rods etc are a little bit thinner than the gym units, but for a home gym it is as good as it gets. I got the 150lbs stacks which is enough for most exercises. If you do squats or rowing, you will reach the limit pretty quickly, but if you use it for the upper body or stabilizer muscles, you will not need more than that. The pull up bar is also pretty nice and had a good shape to it. Installation took me 2.5 hrs (alone). Instructions are almost clear, one or two minor mistakes in the manual, but you figure that out when you read it.
I ordered a couple of attachments (tri press and biceps s/z bar) - pretty much all you ever need.
Pro: Very small foot print, smooth, good quality, (*i bought some more attachments)
Con: non so far - if you can bench 300 lbs you will need the 200lbs stacks, but otherwise, you are good with the 150 lbs stacks
