Summary: Okay, admittedly, I randomly realized that my hairdryer was older than my child was and she is 10 ½. I figured this was a sign that I need to get out there and get a new one. First, there are tons of choices and I cannot compare amongst them, but I can say that I really liked this model and I am glad I chose it. The price is affordable, it is easy to use, and it feels like a quality dryer.
Summary: I love Remington brand items more than most others but I wanted this dryer for more than just that reason....I loved the color. In the picture online it looked my yellow to me but when I got it, it was kind of an orangey-yellow. I loved it even more. My last hair dryer was purple so as you can see, I like the unique colored beauty products. I have been using it for a couple of days now and I think it's great.
Summary: Very happy with this purchase. Also noticed that buying it online instead of in my local store saved me money. Love being able to use cool air on my daughter's hair and the warmer air on mine. I would highly recommend this product.
Summary: My one complaint is that the on/off and temperature switches are very difficult to maneuver. I'm a woman in my 30's, very strong, no arthritis; I can't imagine what someone with joint or finger problems would experience trying to use this hair dryer. But in terms of the utility of the product itself it works well for what you will pay.
Summary: Every time my hairdresser would blow dry my hair, it would come out soft, smooth and silky. When I would use my 1875 watt travel dryer, my hair felt dry and brittle. FINALLY!!! A hair dryer that has the same effects as my hairdresser's and doesn't cost a fortune! Now I am not so concerned about drying my hair on a more regular basis. Haven't used the 'cold' option, but not really sure when I would need it.
Summary: This item claims to be 3 heat settings, but the hottest setting is only lukewarm. Plus, when you lower the speed, the heat temp seems even cooler even though it is on hottest setting. For $10, it is decent. My previous Remington was more compact, easier to handle and got MUCH hotter temps.
