I don't remember what I paid a few years ago for my set of Powerblocks (5-45lb). I think around $200 or $250. However, let me just say Powerblocks are an excellent product. At the time (I do not know about today) they were made in the U.S. if that makes a significant difference to anyone. I still use mine often and have had 0 issues with the adjustable pins. They are metal unlike a lot of adjustable dumbbells which use plastic selector pins.

i got the 5-45 set about 10 years ago for 350 then the 50-90lb addition for 300 before anyone had anything remotely similar. expensive but well made in the usa and i use them to this day.

I got mine with the bench in 97 or 98. In recent years I've done more lifting moving them from rental to rental until finally last year to a home I own. Still in top shape though, wish I would have gotten the machined aluminum b/c they looked cooler, but no durability issues.

powerblocks are the cadillacs of adjustable weights.

Well...I don't know about that...I have tried the powerblocks, Bowflex Selectech, and Ironmaster and I still like the Bowflex 1090's. They just suit my needs better and they are more comfortable in my hands. Of the 3 I like the PowerBlocks the least...but they are still nice products...I just prefer the others.

The range of weights I actually use is pretty narrow, if I didn't go to a gym I'd just buy the iron.

I went to the gym tonight and hated it for a variety of reasons. I vastly prefer P90X at home, on my own gear. I have the 5-45 or whatever set it is. The 'personal' set.
The Bowflex aren't as sturdy, which is why I didn't buy them. The Ironmasters aren't as quick to change, which you really need for the pace of P90X IMHO. And they are expensive.
