I've had chi straighteners for the past 10 years, and I don't really notice any differences between the GHD and the chi. The GHD does not get as hot as a CHI, but still does the same job, so I guess it is better for your hair. The GHD also heats up a lot faster (under 30 sec) than the CHI did. Overstock has a great price for the GHD. When I went to look for this straightener at the mall, in the hair salons, it'd be over $200. So overall I'm happy with this straightener, but I don't see why it sells for so much more than CHIs.
So far, this product has performed extremely well. It heats up almost instantly, is easy to use and the results are the best I've gotten from a styling iron. I would strongly recommend this product.

e straightener is good, but I guess it isnt any better than a CHI that I had which is of course less expensive. Believe me I would never go back to drugstore or even beauty store brand straightners or anything the GHD is miles ahead of those, but I guess since GHD and CHI are always compared I would say I dont notice much of a difference. I have long thick hair with a medium wave. Good straightener but not too much different that the CHI. Possibly just the fact that the design lets you create the beach wave with the straightener is nice- my hair dries like that naturally so it is nice to be able to blend any pieces that dried weird with the straightener- but thats probably the only advantage over the CHI.

Long story short. I bought a CHI at Target and I returned it. Got a SEDU at the beauty supply, and returned it. One didn't heat at all or light up and the CHI was a bad experience and out of control hot. This was a terrific price, it works like a charm, heats fast and evenly 1-2 passes and curls too without that weird bend. The shipping was very fast and the whole experience was a pleasure. I love this iron and I highly recommend it as well as Overstock.
I love this flat iron!! It keeps my hair straighter longer and it feels soft. I think its less damaging because I don't have to straighten my hair as often. I have used Paul MItchell and Chi and didn't like how my hair felt afterwards. I have dry frizzy hair and this works good on my hair. Best flat iron!
