btw, I'm glad to hear you are working with a physical therapist. Good Luck! The process is very mind-numbing and slow, but it will work.

the cable machines typically have a sliding seat so you have to stabilize your body with your core. Also you can switch into a leg workout. The Weider has the ability to switch into several different exercises, but will not be able to grow into the total load that you could on a machine.

do you know how this compares..with the cable row machines at the gym. am i correct in assuming the only advantage of fancy machines is the ability to increase weight a lot (which i can't do..too weak)?

The Weider X-Factor is just a fancy resistance band. It will not provide you with anything you are not getting with your bands. And for $70, I'd stick with the bands.
