I bought one of these back in 2004 and fell in love with it... until my roommate dropped it on a tile floor and broke it a year later. I replaced it right away and it's been going strong ever since! That means this puppy has been running at 100% for me for EIGHT years. Seriously guys, Sedu = quality.
It heats up SO fast (like, less than 30 seconds to full 450 degrees), it makes your hair stick-straight and it will stay that way until the next time you wash it. No frizz, super shiny, one pass over each piece of hair is totally enough. I have thick, wavy hair and this thing just busts right through it no problems. I seriously can't emphasize enough how great this thing is.
I also personally love the wider plates (long hair) as well as how thin the plates are... it feels like I can get nice and close to the roots of my hair that way.
My ONLY complaint about this appliance is that I feel like it leaves a bit of a funny smell on my hair... it's not super unpleasant and I've gotten used to it, but it's there nonetheless. It's done it since the beginning so it's not age-related, though perhaps the newer manufactured models don't have it anymore? Not sure, I've never had to replace this thing in the past eight years!
I might try the newer revolution model but I'm hesitant because I know this thing is going to be nearly impossible to beat. You will not be disappointed with it, trust me.
