The Elohim is the best dryer I have ever had. It has enough power to quickly dry your hair and is not a whiny-noisy as your typical hair dryer. It has a true cool setting which I really like having as a setting and not just a cool shot button. Elchim guarantees their dryers for life, so if you ever run into a problem, you can send it in to them to be fixed and returned, making it a wise investment. I am not affiliated with Elohim and I did not receive this as a sample.
