This review is from: BaByliss Pro Digital 230 Hair Straightener (Personal Care)
A top temperature of 230 mean these straighteners get pretty hot and being not too wide are good for getting even shorter hair straight, I've got quite coarse wavy hair and it seems to do a good job.
Unlike some straighteners the ceramic plates don't go right to the edge of the tongs so you can put them down on most surfaces without the risk of scorching.
Downsides are the fiddly buttons which are easy to accidentally press whilst in use and if you leave the item plugged in whilst not switched on the plastic casing will still get quite hot ( not the ceramic plates) so it's obviously still using quite a bit of electricity. Also it has an LED display and this and the fiddly buttons make me fear for it's longevity, having said that I've had mine for a year and there still going.
