4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised, but design flawed. 23 Sep 2008
By Mr. Ian Thomas TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I got this for my wife in the hope that it would be quieter and more energy efficient than her current Braun hair dryer. She made it clear that it needs to perform just as well as the Braun for her to consider using it long-term!

At first glance, the Babyliss Eco Dry looks and feels a bit like a travel hairdryer and because of this, I didn't have particularly high hopes for it. However, my wife was really pleasantly surprised. According to her, it's really powerful and dries hair just as quickly as her previous hair dryer. It is also very light and easy to handle. She claims her hair felt "lovely and smooth" after using it (her words!).

The fact that it's Eco-Friendly is an added bonus - at less than half the power rating of the previous dryer, it should cost a lot less to run over the coming months and years! And it would easily fit in a suitcase for use on holiday.

Highly recommended. :-)

UPDATE - 6 months on, I've changed the rating from 5 to 4 stars. Unlike most hair dryers which allow you to unscrew the back cover to clean out the filter, this one is a completely sealed unit. A build up of my wife's hair around the fan rotor finally started burning out the motor yesterday. I had to take the plastic casing apart with a specialist screwdriver to free the hair from the filter. It still smells of burning when used - I'm not sure if the motor will survive this. However, the performance and energy saving are still excellent features, and this could just be one-off bad luck.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing purchase 13 Sep 2010
By EmilyQ
I researched this product on Amazon and other websites before buying it so I wasn't surprised by the `travel hair dryer' style when it arrived. It's certainly not a glamorous object but I was more interested in its eco-credentials than anything else, especially as I blow dry my hair every day. However what I wasn't expecting was it to break down twice within 4 months. The first time I was on holiday and the fan at the back became blocked with hair. Unlike other hairdryers it doesn't have a removable filter but we managed to unscrew it and remove the hair. Then only a month later it has stopped working again, and although I have yet to unscrew it, I can't see an obvious hair build up. I am now considering recycling it and buying something else as apart from breaking down, it never gets very warm and therefore takes a while to dry my hair. In addition the straightening nozzle isn't narrow enough for me to use with a large round brush. I would say this product is fine for using a couple of times a week for short-ish hair but no good for blow drying long hair on a daily basis. It's a shame as otherwise it's a great eco-friendly device.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little dryer 27 Nov 2008
By M. Hoy VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's hard to believe it operates at any power below standard procedure. The fan is good, and there is a lot of hair movement, spreading out the hair and drying individual parts quicker. It isn't lacking in heat either, and while not quite as hot as a 2000W dryer, is still quite plucky, and will get your hair dry in the same time, whilst probably avoiding some of the heat damage.

I like it. Looks and feels well made. Good price. Works well.

I brought this for my 13year old daughter as she needed a new dryer, I saw this dryer as it stood out from the rest and felt it was ideal as she was taught at school about being green and saving the environment. I took it home and showed her, she loved the box when I gave it to her. When she came to use it she thought that the hairdryer was very light and much easier to use then her old one. She said there was hardly much difference to her old one despite the wattage being at 1000. She has even told all her freinds about this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get one soon! 4 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase
This is a really great piece of kit. Don't normally write reviews but thought this deserved a write up.

It makes total sense improving the fan rather than relying on the heating element to do all the work. It dries hair quickly without scorching. I would give this 10/10. Please could more designers come up with ideas like this. Work out the sums and you'll find it will pay for itself whilst helping to reduce CO2 emissions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as a 1800w Babyliss, only smaller. 11 Nov 2008
By i wrote this TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We compared the usage and results of this new model to our Babyliss 1800W hair dryer and we were really impressed. Drying results were just as quick, just as good and the ionizer button was just as effective. All of this and the hair dryer was significantly smaller, very useful when you're flying and restricted to hand luggage as we found out first hand.
Hopefully we'll see hair dryers like this become the industry standard over the next few years. Unless you are a professional hair stylist I can't see any reason NOT to buy one of these over the regular energy consumption alternatives. It's an excellent product totally worthy of 5 stars and todays Amazon price of 19.

Hopefully the next version will come with all the 'useful' accessories you come to expect, like a detachable defuser, etc.

By Keith_Joseph HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My long-haired daughter [14] has the 2000watt Philips Salon Pro Nano-Diamond TRESemme [yes it's a hairdryer] which comes with a concentrator [as does this Babyliss], a diffuser [not included with the Babybliss] and an ioniser to reduce static and 'condition' hair [that is also on the Babyliss]. They both have a 'cold shot' button to rapidly cool the air and so 'set the hair style in place'. The Philips also came with a neat tubular bristle styling thingy, whereas with the eco dry you have to buy your own. The Philips has three heat and two speed settings compared to the Babyliss's simple twin heat/blow setting switch. However the Eco dryer sells itself on 'Eco-Air(tm) technology that encompasses an advanced heater and fan design that rebalances the heat and airflow, producing a drying rate as fast as the top 2000W hairdryers but with only half the energy consumption'. Essentially the heat block/fan has been redesigned to work more efficiently, giving better airflow and heat transfer over the heat-block and your hair. Set to turbo 'full on' this Eco hair dryer produces a pretty impressive uniform wall of warm air [which naturally drops a lot at the alternative 'reduced' setting]. In fact my daughter finds the reduced setting useless and only uses this hairdryer on maximum blow.

Babyliss claims the Eco Dry works as well as our Philips but uses half the energy [i.e. it's a 1000watt model] and so 'saving enough energy everyday to make 7 cups of tea or 11 slices of toast' [assuming you use a hairdryer for 10 minutes a day]. It comes in `eco-friendly packaging' [i.e. a cardboard box] and more usefully a three year guarantee.
