The waterrower makes less noise than the concept II, but as far
as I am concerned that's its only advantage. The Conecept II looks
better, has a better display and is the standard equipment used
worldwide.
I'd go for the Concept unless noise is a problem.

 I would certainly reccomend the WaterRower - I bought one at the start of this
year after looking carefully at both. It feels a lot more like real rowing and
when you've finished, it hurts in all the right places. Another major advantage
is the fact it's so quiet - important as I live in a house with other people who
might not like my late-night erging sessions.

 The disadvantage of the WaterRower is the computer. It's a lot more basic than
the Concept II - there are simply time, distance, speed and stroke rate
displays. I found it difficult to get used to the speed (measured in m/s rather
than 500m splits).

 Hope that's of some use

From my brief experience on the WaterRower (just a few minutes) I would say
that the Concept II feels nicer.
