I so wanted to love this--it seemed like the perfect-for-travel dual voltage flatiron with rounded edges for creating both straight and curled styles. Alas, a huge fail for me. I ordered this directly from the Remington site after emailing them with questions about which straightener was best for my hair type. [I have fine, thin, silky, mostly straight hair that also likes to frizz, bend and misbehave.] Have to say, their customer service was excellent. My experience using the flat iron however was a lot less stellar. The package was missing it's instructional DVD but I figured with all the youtube tutorials out there, surely I'd get the hang of it. If only it were that easy. The only "pros" I can think of are the features I mentioned up-front; it's light-weight, dual-voltage and apparently shuts itself off after an hour if you forget to. It's also very affordable. But using it as a straightener was frustrating to say the least; my hair repeatedly got caught in the side seams and would tear during use [others had mentioned this in the online reviews I'd read.] In addition, the smooth ceramic plates didn't seem to grip my hair tight enough to actually straighten it, so I'd end up going over the same sections again and again; hardly ideal. Lastly, maybe it's just me but I couldn't get this to give me any sort of curl or wave whatsoever, even after watching some very talented youtubers achieve great looks with the same iron. Sent it back today, paid for shipping both ways and have learned my lesson about ordering online.
