I got this a bit ago because it was half the price of a new Chi. I bought this to replace my old Chi (rest its soul) which I had for 5 years before it died. This refurbished one barely lasted a month. It was fine for a bit, and then it wouldn't turn on -- which is how my old one started to go -- unless I clicked the reset button a few times, turned the switch to "on," and give it a few minutes before the straightener and red LED light would turn on. Each time I went to use it, it would take longer and longer to turn on until I was waiting a half hour or so. Recently, it just quit working altogether. No matter how many times I push the reset button or how many hours I wait, it won't turn on. Thankfully I bought the warranty. In general, Chis are amazing -- always leave my hair shiny, straight and smelling like the shampoo I used instead of burned hair. Last time I buy a refurb through o.co.
I bought this iron about 8 months ago, after the one I'd used for 6 years finally died. One day, it showed on, but was only slightly warm. I moved the iron around, and it finally heated up. After about 3 days of struggling to find the right position where it would heat up fully, it finally failed to heat period. It did work well, while it worked.
You get what you pay for. When my other iron died after years of use, I was desperate to find a new one, and bought this model at a local store. Shopping for a new and better model here on Overstock.
I really really really LOVE my GO Iron! I have had it for 3 years now and I straighten my and my daughter's hair with it several times a week. It heats up quickly and works well. Leaves my hair soft and shiny. The iron I had previous I would have to pass through 2 or 3 times and my hair still didn't look good and would curl back up quickly if there was the least bit of humidity in the air. Never had that issue with this iron. When it dies I will buy another.
