This dryer is a tank! It's th longest I've ever owned a hairdryer and I don't think it's leaving any time soon. It gets very hot, personally o feel like it would work better for thicker hair vs my fine hair. I have to make extra sure to protect my hair from the heat, but it dries it quickly (7-10 minutes with round brush) and my hair is down to the middle of my back. I give it 4 stars based on the durability of the dryer and ability to speed dry my hair. Although it is very pricey (the most I've ever spent), it's pretty heavy, and I often accidentally turn the settings because when the buttons are so easily moved when drying your hair. That can be frustrating. Overall if you have thicker hair (not fine) it would be great.
