Yes! I love this dryer. I had initially gotten the Conair Infiniti Tourmaline dryer but just wasn't thrilled with it (see review). I got this one to compare and just love it. It is sooo much lighter, the controls are in a good place, and I have gotten great results. Usually I would have to do my hair the day before I needed it to look good because it was always poofy after drying, but with this dryer my hair looks great immediately afterwards. If not for the reviews here I would never have tried it!

Giving the dryer 5 lippies but I'd like to give it 10. This dryer is unreal. It makes my hair nicer and smoother than if I didn't blow dry. Thats weird to say since I know what all about the evils of heat styling, but it does, so smooth and soft. Haven't noticed any dryness in my hair, and I have been looking. Great dryer

Update 11/9/06: I returned mine as I got complaints at home. This dryer is sooo LOUD! I wash my hair at night so this is not for me. It was advertised as "quiet" but actually not. Now, I really enjoy my new Conair 1875 Watt Ion Shine Ceramic Styler model: 174T with tourmaline, which is pretty quiet and beautiful red with 3 heat/2 speed settings.
***********I have T3 Evolution and saw this article from CBS03 Philadelphia and bought this Revlon. Anyway, here are my personal experience compared to this Revlon Tourmaline and T3 Evolution. Revlon is not "Professional" quality while T3 is advertised as for serious hair care professionals. Revlon is not "quiet" especially compared to Evolution. Weight is almost the same (Evolution= 13.5 oz vs. Revlon=1.75 lbs). Evolution's concentrator and diffuser are made with tourmaline (somewhat inside) while Revlon is completely plastic and the cord is shorter. Revlon's physical body is quite cheap. I thought Evolution is quite loud in "high" speed but Revlon is much louder even in low speed. Evolution has more heat settings, which I like in hair dryers, while Revlon has only hot and warm. For shine and silky hair, hair dryer alone is not enough. Diet (as well as hormone level), hair care products, treatments, etc. required. Bottom-line: If you can afford and wanted to feel like you deserve $300, then buy Evolution. Otherwise, for cheap and decent quality, Revlon is a good choice.******
You can watch the video clips at (http://cbs3.com/seenon/local_story_200092713.html) I also saw pretty Revlon Stylix Tourmaline in Red at Wal-Mart. Has anyone tried it yet?

Love, love, love. Has cut down my drying time by 2/3, and my hair looks so much better than it used to with my 10-year-old Vidal dryer. I really can't recommend this dryer highly enough!!!

LOVE! I bought this one becaues I can't afford the T3 from Sephora. The other reviewers sealed it for me - I ordered it from Amazon.com after reading all the rave reviews. Add mine! With out styling my hair, meaning if I just do a regular blow-dry, I can dry my thick hair in 9 minutes. Before it was 20-25. If I style it, add on another 5-10 minutes. It's light and fast. I really like this dryer a LOT.

I have to agree with the rest of you guys.. this is an all-around great hairdryer. I previously used the Conair Ion Hairdryer which left my long, wavy, thick hair frizzy and very poofy. This Revlon hairdryer dries my hair much faster and leaves it straight and smooth. Now I only have to use my flat iron to smooth out the little poofiness that I still get(which is inevitable for me no matter what dryer I use). Oh, and it's also VERY lightweight compared to the conair dryer.

I'll add another rave for the RV544. I usually air dry my fine, curly hair, but since growing it out this past year I couldn't face another Pacific NW rainy winter with wet hair. My hair also frizzes easily--when it curls, it's very very good, but when it frizzes, it's awful :) I read about this dryer on the boards, other curly girls were raving about it. At about $25.00, I had to give it a try. This dryer did not drastically cut my drying time--about the same as my old Sassoon dryer--but I use the lowest setting. My curls look great and best of all, no frizz!! I'll keep using it and update this review if something bad happens. UPDATE, 11/12/06: Well, I'm taking off 1 lippy. If I use it on a daily basis my hair starts to frizz. So this is fine for occassional use (which is all I should be doing anyway, I suppose).

first of all, i LOVE this dryer!!!!! cut my drying time in half!! (im not down to less than 10 minutes for my thick/coarse/dry long hair) With a paddle brush, my hair actually turns out straight and shiny!
i was considering a Babyliss or T3, but stumbled on other MUA'ers talking about this revlon dryer. turns out, Good Housekeeping ranked this drying above the $200 and $300 T3 dryers!! here's the link to the article:
i bought this today at ulta for $20 (there's a sale on all Revlon tools, plus i used that $3.50 off coupon). i'm so glad i found this!!
before this, i was using the Conair Ion dryer, but it would always leave my hair poofy, coarse, and would take at least 15-20 minutes to dry it. this cheap Revlon dryer is unbelievable!!!! not only does it get my hair shiny, straight, and as flat as i want, but this dryer is also really lightweight, and comes with a diffuser and air concentrator attachments. you can also adjust the temperature and speed according to your hair type.
i use the Solia 1.25'' flat iron after i blow dry, and my hair is so soft, shiny, and straight...like its straight out of a Pantene commercial.
conclusion: if you want to save $$ but still get a professional styling tool, the Revlon RV544 Tourmaline Ionic dryer is the way to go!!

Awesome. Why pay hundreds for a T3 when you can spend $24.99 for the Revlon Tourmaline Ionic? I was very skeptical before getting this dryer. I mean, Tourmaline? Ionic? I thought it was all hype. But upon first use, I was a believer. Now that I've used it a few times, I'm a complete convert!! It dries my hair in half the time as my "regular" dryer and it DRAMATICALLY reduces frizz. I have shoulder length, baby fine, naturally curly hair that seriously wants to frizz if left on its own. I never pull my hair straight to dry it because I love my curls... but what I don't love is the frizz. Even drying my hair with NO product, this dryer leaves me with minimal frizz. And if I use a frizz control product, I get no frizz at all.. just beautifully soft, defined curls. I have nothing but good things to say about this dryer. I love the fact that it comes with the diffuser included!
If you're on the fence about Ionic and/or Tourmaline dryers, jump off and pick up the Revlon Model RV544 Tourmaline Ionic Hairdryer. For $24.99 what have ya got to lose?
I picked mine up at Rite Aid though I did see it at Ulta and it's available online at amazon.com as well. I would repurchase :)
11/25/06 ETA: I have now purchased and used the T3 Evolution dryer to see the comparison. The T3 Evolution costs 12x more than the Revlon... and I can't say it's 12x better. The T3 Evolution is quieter... but it is not 12x quieter than the Revlon. The T3 Evolution is lighter than the Revlon but it's not 12x lighter. People constantly talk about how much lighter the T3 is however the T3 Evolution weighs only 1 ounce less than the Revlon ... a difference that is truly negligible when using a dryer (and yes, I did pull out my digital postal scale to check the weights of each dryer!). In fact, I find the T3 Evolution to be a really nice dryer but it is not 12x better than the Revlon though it costs 12x more. It takes me longer to blow dry my thin, naturally curly hair to straight using the T3 Evolution. For the price of the T3 Evolution, you can buy 12 Revlon's... that means if you buy the Revlon and it breaks, you can buy it again 11 more times before you've paid the same amount you would for a T3 Evolution. I'm glad I bought the T3 Evolution to see what the hype was all about. The T3 Evolution is not worth the extra money and I can now say that based on my personal experience.
