I have owned the Iris for a month now. I have no regrets; it was definitely a good buy. I'm a newcomer to the world of adult toys and a college kid, so I was a little uneasy about buying one for $70. However, I did my research and decided to give it a try, graduating from a dinky little $15 novelty vibrator to the Iris, which to me is the Cadillac of vibrators. After using my Iris for the first time, I realized how much I had been missing.
You can't beat the Amazon price. And the superior quality of the item means that you can expect it to last much longer than your average novelty toy. I had noticed the concerns in other reviews regarding the dial interface. It's really quite simple, and for me, there is no risk of accidentally changing the mode or speed as I have to press firmly to change anything. Just read the manual and play around with the Iris to familiarize yourself with the combinations of modes and speeds. Then you can get started (mine arrived about 75% charged). For the power it provides, it is relatively quiet.
I bought the Iris intending to use it internally (I selected it for its larger size). However, when I opened it, I realized that it was definitely on the larger side (in both length and girth), and perhaps I wasn't ready for that yet (another reviewer said that this toy was good for the size queens . . . she was right). So I use the Iris externally for now, and I'm quite satisfied :-) And later if I want to use it internally, I'm sure it will more than suffice. It's designed to be used both ways. Unless the product is from Lelo, I probably won't consider buying another personal massager for a long, long time.
My Iris came with all the trimmings; warranty, charger, and satin pouch, not to mention the nice packaging. The Iris, like the whole line of Lelo products, is a luxury item in a class above the rest. So at this price, you should consider investing in one. Actually, at this price, you could even buy two Lelo toys on Amazon for the list price of one. With the money you save, you might as well buy some silicone-compatible lube while you're at it, and you'll be good to go. Have fun! Passion Natural Personal Lubricant Paraben Free, Glycerin Free Lube
