This is a really great flat iron! I just got mine about a month ago and have not been disappointed. You can get these flat irons for a very fair price and they work great. I think they are completely worth their price. The iron heats up very fast and straightens hair very good. The plate is wide so you can straighten hair faster and get ready faster, which helps you save time. It is a durable flat iron that is not so flimsy that if you drop it, it breaks. It is a great size, easy to hold onto and easy to use. It has different heats that you can choose to put it on depending on your hair type, so that you can use the correct heat setting for your hair-type. Very good flat iron for a great price!!
