Price: Yes, shipping is free, but I found that if you compare the price to what they offer at a competitive local store, it's pricier online by at least 10$. That's probably because shipping costs are directly included in the listed price, which makes sense for an article that is that heavy. Still, you should look around at local stores to see if you can find a similar product for cheaper.
Availability: Maybe it's different where you live, but in my area, it was very hard to find a standard grip compact (no rubber coating)dumbbell at 40 lbs or lighter and there was nothing in the 45+ lbs range (scary, I know) so it was a blessing to find them online, at least for the 45-60 lbs range.
Quality: The 25 lbs dumbbells were perfect. The grip was clean and they were both 25.4 lbs. The 45 lbs dumbbells were a bit more problematic, though nothing too upsetting. First, one was 46.8 lbs and the other one was 47.6 lbs. I'm not too fussy about my dumbbells weighting an exact multiplier of 5, but I do appreciate it when they weight exactly the same, though to be fair, it is only a 0.8 lbs difference (plus I can swap between sets). Equally, the grip had a few bumpy artifacts... nothing that would cause a serious injury, though definitely enough to irritate the hand in the long run. That being said, 3 minutes with a file solved the problem.
So overall, it a great's product with a few minor blemishes. Well worth the money if you can't find it in a local store in your area.
Since I have hardwood flooring I was concerned the metal corners might scratch the finish, so I applied the same self-adhesive felt pads I use under my chair legs to the bottom of each of the dumbbells. When I move on from 10lb exercises I plan on buying the same dumbbells in a variety of weights.
"WARNING: This product contains one or more chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm."
I should have just returned them, but instead decided it couldn't be that serious. However, googling the warning did little to assuage my fears. After a few months of washing hands after every use, I grew too paranoid and disposed of the weights. Bought different ones at local fitness store.
I ordered 2 25lb weights, and the best part was the free shipping and watching the ups guy haul them up the stairs to my apt.
