I bought this from Ulta a few weeks ago and I have to say, it's great! Much quieter that my last dryer at the same wattage. I have thick wavy hair and this dryer makes my hair soft and manageable. I do have to say that I don't think it dries my hair any faster..in fact, I think it takes a little longer with this dryer (one reason why I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5).
The MAIN reason I was attracted to this drier, I admit, was becuase of it's looks. It's chrome (which I love) and the vents are on the sides of the dryer instead of on the butt end. It definitely has that 'Old School' 1950's look to it. The other reason I only gave it 4 lippes instead of 5 is because the dryer is kind of heavy...much heavier than my last, and with the longer drying time, I'm exhausted by the time I'm done. Oh well....will buy again if this is still available when it comes time to replace.
