My hair stylist recommended this since I didn't want to spend over $100 on a Mason Pearson hair brush. He and many other stylists at the studio think it's a great alternative, especially for the price. It looks just the same and I feel like it works just the same! I use it daily to flat brush my hair and it leaves it so smooth, shiny, and full! I've only had it a year so I don't know how long it'll last, but I'm hoping it'll last a long time! And the price really is great. $15ish for the full size, $12ish for the smaller size, and around holidays, you can get both the full size and the smaller size in a set for I think around $20. It's awesome and I totally recommend it to everyone who wants a quality brush for a killer price!
