    They are definitely convenient if you move a lot, but the heaviest they get is 52.5lbs, which isn't much for the serious dumbbell lifters. The grip on them is very nice and they're very easy to use though. Over $300 for a set is a little expensive.

    I'd give them a thumbs up for toners but a thumbs down for anyone else.

    although theres alot of haters i still think the powerblocks are pretty good. they go up to 95lbs i think. my dads got a set and i can do tons of shit with them. some things are semi awkward but you pay a price for convenience.

    The Nautilus/Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells have little dials on the ends that let you select weights, and then it picks up only that weight when you take them out of the holders.

    powerblocks > those

    the price could be better, but for a convience factor they're great and built very well.

    you drop them like any other dumbbell, they're pretty wide inside even with the supports around your hands
