BowFlex SlectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells
This is one of the best-selling adjustable dumbbell sets on the market. As with pretty much all the sets listed below, this set will save you a ton of space and money, as it replaces the need for multiple sets of individual dumbbells.
As you may be able to tell by the name, this set allows you a weight range from 5 to 52 pounds. While 52 pounds is not a ton of weight, it should be enough to get the average person started with their weight training program.
Additionally, they're super easy to use, and adjust by simply twisting the dial on each side of the dumbbell and rotating it to your desired weight. That's it!
Cap Barbell 40-Pound Dumbbell Set
This is a smaller, more traditional set of dumbbells. While the weights are adjustable, there is no pin system as there is on PowerBlock dumbbells, or dial system as in the case of the BowFlex SelectTech 552 dumbbells. They simple adjust by unscrewing the collar, adding or removing weight, then screwing the collar back on.
As far as the weight, each dumbbell has a 5 to 20 pound capacity, or you can load a single dumbbell with 35 pounds.
They come in a handy carrying case, so they're very portable and do not take up much space.
PowerBlock Classic Adjustable Dumbbell Set
PowerBlock Dumbbells come in four variations, Classic, Elite, Personal Trainer, and SportBlock.

The Classic version is the most popular and ranges in weight from 5 to 45 pounds. This weight range is ideal for the person new to weight training as well as the experienced lifter.
Do adjust the weight on this set simply pull out the pin, and slide it back into the desired weight setting.
BowFlex SelectTech 1090 Adjustable Dumbbell (Single)
The SelectTech 1090 dumbbell adjusts from 10 pounds to 90 pounds, and functions exactly like the highest rated adjustable dumbbell set, the 552 SelectTech dumbbells.
