If you buy, bother unpacking- just throw right in the trash. The on/off button is very hard to toggle and has little traction, so it takes two hands to turn on/off. Since one hand is usually holding a styling brush, that means putting the brush down and picking it up constantly, or else putting the contraption in a death grip and ripping a cuticle trying to operate it. Very frustrating and a waste of money. I've purchased several Revlon hair dryers in the past and never had this problem. Very disappointed.
The first time I used this it smelled like it was going to catch on fire and was actually smoking!! Against my better judgement I continued to use it because I didn't have another dryer. After a couple uses the smell burned off and it quit smoking. I told my hairdresser about it and she said every Babybliss dryer has a manufacturing plate with a manufacturing number. This dryer doesn't have one so it's a knock off. Bummer.
At first I was not sure if it was anything special and questioned if it was the best selection / good value. It only has the 2 speeds of low and high and one pre-set heat setting with the cool shot button, but that is all I really ever use on my fine straight hair anyway. Now, after using it every day for about 2 weeks, I am very pleased that I bought it. For my use, the high setting and heat level is perfect and it is VERY light and pretty quiet. Although I do not notice a significant reduction in drying time, my hair has a smoother texture and softer look -- even in Florida's summer humidity. I am happy I bought it and overall feel it is a good value. .I would give it a 4.5 out of 5.
