I have thick, frizzy/wavy hair that I prefer to straighten...However I have small children and if my morning routine takes more than 30 minutes, I won't do it. This iron is wonderful. Heats up in 60 seconds to 455 degrees (the hottest setting which I use...degree can be lowered.) Works great on my hair. I can go to bed with a wet head, wake up with crazy hair and it's smooth and flat in less than 5 minutes. The ONLY bad part about this thing is the place where they put the on/off switch and temp setting. It is located exactly where you would naturally grip the iron. So I found myself accidentally turning the iron off or lowering the temp on accident. Once I figured it out, I am able to hold it differently and it works great however I'm holding it in a way that isn't really natural or comfortable for me. Really weird design?!?!

I have a CHI flat iron that I've used for years and love. I have thick, wavy hair that needs a bit of heat to create a smooth, sleek look. This flat iron works well for it's price point in that it certainly straightens my hair fine and creates a smooth look. I agree with others that the position and design of the on/off and temp buttons is a little awkward as I was always accidently adjusting the temp control. The heating pad it comes with is helpful since this iron does have a bit of a more curved design and tends to fall over on it's side exposing a little bit of the plates to the counter.

Finally, it does state that it heats up to 455 degrees, but I'm not entirely sure about how accurate that is. My CHI only gets up to 410 degrees and this iron did not seem any hotter than that (or produce results that showed any difference).

On/Off & temp to easy to change or shut off by accident. Once you learn how to adjust your grip it's better. Does the job really well. Great price.

    Having the controls on the top side of the iron is very annoying. I spend too much time turning the iron back on or resetting the temperature.

        This is a pretty good iron. I did accidently turn it off once b/c of the button placement. I like that is comes with a pad to sit it on so you don't have to worry about how you set it down. It heats up really fast.

        This hair straightner works pretty good. I have thick hair so it takes a while to get all of it straight. Heats up very quickly and is a good travel straightner and to use between using my other straightner that takes a little longer to heat up. I use it when I travel now to not break my other one and works great. But when I want to look my best I use my Chi. Good price for what I've paid for other products also.

          I really like how smooth and shiny my hair is after using this straightener. It heats up fast and does a good job (much better than my old straightener). The only problem is that I sometimes accidentally bump the control buttons.

          I have fairly straight hair already, but the pieces around my face are a little wavy at times. It took me multiple swipes to get my hair straight. It heats up super fast, though, and the temperature is adjustable. The rounded edges are great for curling, but they tend to curl my hair even when I want to straighten it. Overall, I would go with a different straightener (Hot Tools, GHD, Chi).

            I like it alot and much better than my other one. It is nice and light weight w/a long cord that never tangles. It does heat up fast w/only one strip of the iron. I would recommend this to anyone that has think hair.
