These are wonderful straighteners. I know GHDs were good as I have a pair of mark 3's going strong that are around 8 years old. When I saw these advertised on Amazon for £89 though, I decided to treat myself to an early Christmas present. I'm so glad I did - they are so light and just glide through the hair. It took me about 5 mins to straighten my short thick coarse wavy hair - fantastic!
They are lighter (not to mention prettier!) and heat up more quickly than the Mark 3 version. They also beep when they reach optimum temperature and go into sleep mode after 30 minutes of inactivity. They come with a very good quality carrying case.
I was a bit concerned by reports of people buying new GHDs and finding them faulty, in particular finding that the plates don't meet flush together. Mine are great though and are flush. I really recommend them - they're a fantastic purchase.
