Do Not Waste Your Money On This Flat Iron--it Is Not Dependable!
I owned a Chi for 4+ years with NO problems at all, until I accidentally dropped it one day and broke one of the heating pads. I am sure my Chi would have lasted even longer had I not dropped it. I went on folica.com looking for a replacement flat iron, and noticed at the time that the Sedu had a lot of good reviews and was rated one of the top flat irons on the site, so I bought it for $119 plus a discount, which came to about $96. I had paid that for the Chi iron so it was no big deal. HOWEVER, I started having problems with the Sedu iron after only about a year. It sounds like a common issue with the cord, after reading more reviews from other people today--the power keeps cutting off and on while straightening your hair. You have to keep jiggling the cord to get the power to come back on.
So since it was still under warranty, I returned it and received a replacement. Great, except less than a year and a half and I have the SAME problem as I did with the first Sedu iron! Funny thing is, I don't even use the flat iron on a regular basis like I used my Chi. I used my Chi EVERY SINGLE DAY for over 4 years with no problem--yet with both of these Sedu irons I used maybe twice a week tops and each iron only lasted for approximately a year and a half.
For the price of the Sedu flat iron, a consumer should expect more than a year or so of use without having power issues. I contacted Sedu a few days ago, and they would not replace or repair it, even though I have not even owned it for the whole length of the warranty period (because it is a replacement iron). After reading so many reviews from other customers who had the same cord/power problem, Sedu HAS to know it is an inherent problem with their flat irons, and I believe they should replace people's bad irons with a CORRECTED flat iron.
Because Sedu will not even acknowledge this issue, I will NEVER purchase another Sedu product again. In fact, I will probably go back to Chi irons. My old Chi was a workhorse that I could depend on, day after day!
