5.0 out of 5 stars So far I like it!, 6 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After trying and being disappointed with the Vidal Sassoon dryer and the Philips Tresamme dryer (see my reviews) I bought them because they were both were powerful and had more speed heat settings to give better control (but were both heavy and difficult to use), I decided to try a more compact but equally powerful dryer.

I must admit to being a bit put off by 2 other reviews on this page which state that their Remington dryers blew up on them, but I decided to go ahead and just be wary of any unusual noises coming from the dryer.
The Remington is smaller than other professional salon type dryers, but with 2000w is just as powerful. There are only 2 speed settings, but these are quite nicely balanced, unlike other dryers which have been too slow on the slower setting and too fast on the higher setting.
The 3 heat settings are good although when you turn it up higher, the heat takes a second or so to come through and at first I thought it was not working.
It is both ceramic and ionic, which is very good for a hairdryer at this price. The ionic setting comes on automatically when you turn on the dryer, it cannot be independently set.
It has a cool shot, but this is the only poor thing about the dryer, the cool shot is mildly warm rather than really cool, I do not rely on a cool shot to style my hair, so it does not matter to me, but you may be disappointed if you are expecting a good strong blast of cool air.
The hairdryer is easy to use when you are styling your hair. The concentrator nozzle works well and this combined with the ionic and ceramic settings, leaves my hair bouncy and in good condition when it is dry. I also love the fact that it is small and relatively light as it means it is easy to move around your head without getting arm ache!
So far, so good, I would definately recommend at this point. However I promise that if it blows up, I will edit this review to make other potential customers aware!
Edited review date May 2009. So far the hairdryer has worked very well, there is no sign of any electrical problems as per the other reviews. Hopefully the problems experienced by the other reviewers were unlucky one off issues than a common problem with all dryers.
