Power Block

as I’m slowly rebuilding the home gym since i lost it all in hurricane Harvey. I’m trying  figure out if i should Go with a full set of dumbbells or move to something like the power block adjustable dumbbells to save both space and money. Does anyone have experience with adjustable weight dumbbells? Pros? Cons? Personal experience? Basically, help me figure this out by sharing your knowledge please.

I have heard of them, and

I have heard of them, and have seen them (power blocks) and they seem perfect for a home gym. I know a trainer that is setting up a home gym and loves them simply for the fact that they are a space saver. I am sure there are draw backs as there are for anything. But drawbacks can be overcome with a little creative thought :)

Most power blocks I've seen

Most power blocks I've seen don't go up very high in weight. What's the heaviest set you've foulnd?

I haven't seen them that

I haven't seen them that heavy, but I haven't looked that hard either. 125 would be good for me except for Kroc rows, but you could always get some chain and add that to them.

125 would be plenty for me as well and I may even be able to get by with the 90's as long as i get creative with the barbell. I've priced them out and it's almost as cost prohibitive as buying an entire set of dumbells. I'm going to have to keep thinking on this one.

Also, trying to figure out what I can do about making a compact(ish) cable machine for the garage as well.
