This is nice for the price that I paid for it. It's a lot easier for me to hold rather than a regular flat iron. I have naturally curly hair and with my texture I have to flat iron my hair twice before it's straightened the way that I like it.
Gets hot quickly
Easy to hold
Cools down in a timely matter
Easy to clean
Long enough cord

The buttons are right where your hand constantly presses.
Doesn't get my hair as straight as I would like it to.
I didn't like the fact that the box was already opened. One of the stickers was already cut open and on the other side it was covered up by another. After inspection, it didn't appear to be used.

As someone with short hair (grown out pixie) I possess a pair of mini-straighteners, but it's so tedious and fiddly to straight my naturally curly/wavy hair that I basically only use it if a piece of my hair is sticking straight out! So I was excited to try this brush straightener, figuring it would save me time and allow me to have a straight hairstyle on the rare occasion that I wanted a change.
I was very impressed with this unit with one downside. When trying to straighten the ends of short hair, the hair ends up curling outwards as it's hard to pull directly down without the heat being too close to the neck. This isn't a problem if your hair is long enough to hold the end of the hair and pull the brush down (or clamp it as with straightener), but if your hair is as short as mine it can be a bit of a problem. It's also slightly heavier than a straightening iron, but because it's a lot faster, I found my arm was less strained.
But other than that it was a breeze to use! I didn't turn the heat up overly high as I didn't want to damage my hair. Make sure to have your hair damp as it says in the instructions. When running the brush through your hair you will hear a slight sizzling as the heat absorbs and dries the water, but it doesn't smoke or burn your hair.
Did a great job getting my hair straight with minimal effort and apart from the bottom of my hair, I didn't ever feel in danger of burning my skin like with straighteners. Absolutely love the bright pink color, the fact that the panel is electronic and you can lock the heat so you don't accidentally change it.
Great time saving product that straightens wonderfully.
