I used one when I first started working out and it worked well. It was compact, easy to use, built well, but they have their limits. Are you going to build a body on one like the guy in the commercial using it, not likely. I grew tired of it and found I enjoyed using free weights more than I did the Bowflex. I also felt like I was getting more from my workouts with the free weights. If you're looking for a quick, space saving way to get in better shape, then go for it. If space is not an option, you can assemble yourself a hell of a free weight collection for less than the cost of the new Bowflex. If your set on the Bowflex, save yourself some money and hit up craig's list. There are always tons of them on there.
