This is a really good product and works well. It doesn't get too hot, the cord is a good length, it's not too loud. But if you have a blow dryer, you can save your money because a blow dryer will do the exact same thing as this heater and nobody will know the difference when they look at your wraps. I'd say the only real difference between a blow dryer and this heater is that the heater has a stand to make it hands free so you can just wave your nails in front of it, where the blow dryer you or someone else would have to manually hold it and wave it over the nails. I'd say between the two, it's all about preference.
