I've had my Wet 2 Straight for about 4 years now, and I don't use it very much since I got my CHI a few months ago. You see, while it's very convenient that I can straighten my hair from when it's wet, it really only dries my hair like a blow dryer and brush would - semi-straight, but dry, and with still a bit of frizz. This is with a heat protectant, mind you. In order to get my hair straight enough to tell that it's been straightened and not just naturally straight (my hair is naturally very wavy but what I mean is that it only gets it straight enough to look like I have naturally semi-straight hair and you can't tell I've done anything) I need to take at least an extra 20 minutes on my dry hair (which is thick and a bit below my shoulders). The time adds up to almost an hour! With that time, I can blow dry my hair and then use my CHI for a much straighter, shinier, less frizzy look - and it takes away the "poof" factor! Plus, I don't have to use nearly as much product with the CHI. I strongly suggest opting for a CHI or even the Revlon 1" straightener, which isn't as a fast as the CHI but eventually gets almost the same results, just a bit less pin-straight. Tl;dr: it takes so long to dry & straighten that it's worth just blowdrying and using a better straightener.
