My hair is extremely thick and long and it can take around 15 mins to straighten. Having used a Remington for 2 years with thicker plates I was a bit skeptical about buying this one as the plates were thinner but it had good reviews on here. Used it for the first time today with washed hair and must say it is excellent. Heated up quickly like it says and straightens hair quickly as well. I did have to go over some parts two or three times but that is expected. I am glad I purchased this straightener. The pouch is nice too - perfect for packing away for travelling or nice to use as a heat mat.
This is a great product. Fast delivery and it works with my white MacBook 13". Just plug and play and it projects to my Samsung HD TV. Please be warned it does not have sound output therefore you will not hear any sound unless you get another cable. Although I do not need another cable because the bluetooth on my laptop can connect to my surround sound system bluetooth and it works fine.
