The price of these cannot be beaten. They are by far the most affordable that I could find at the time of purchase. The total weight of the plates is 47.5lbs with the handles supposed to weigh 2.5lbs. But it comes up short when I weighed the dumbbells with all the weights on them. They are 48.7lbs on the electronic scale I have.
My biggest problem with these dumbbells is when all the plates are on both sides of the dumbbells there isn't very much room for the lock collar bolts to thread through to feel safe with; especially since the lock collars tend to come undone with any movement. Like the previous reviewer stated, after each set or even in the middle of the set the collars start to come undone, which is disconcerting when doing incline presses or shoulder presses.
Also, on a side note. When the product was shipped, the container was very low grade and thin cardboard. The weights tore the box up quite a bit and one of the lock collars was missing on arrival. I give 5 stars for Titan Fitness in their quick and timely response. It's been about a week since I've received the dumbbells and am still waiting for the missing part to come in. Knowing full well that shipping would be slow I had to go and buy replacement lock collars while I wait for the replacement.
This leads me to my other quip. The replacement collars do a better job staying in place than what comes with the set from Titan Fitness.
Overall, if you're on a budget this is a great set to have in the interim until you're able to save enough for a hex dumbbell set.
Overall, I like these dumbbells for the price. They come with plenty of weight and get the job done. There are a couple of cons, though I feel like each one is a min or quibble:
1. The weights that I received seemed to be dipped in some kind of oily substance
2. After almost every set I have to redo the lock collars as they loosen up.
3. I wish the handles were a little thicker
