I liked the color and features, but I did not like the gap in between the plates! It may work if you have thick hair, but as far as I am concerned there should not be any gaps between the plates. It took forever to straighten. I do not have anything against Remington, I believe they make quality products. I had been using a Wet-to-Straight for a while and it did not have any gaps between the plates. I bought a new one only because I needed to upgrade to a 1" versus a 2" and also because I heard it is not good to flat iron your hair when wet, even if the iron is designed for that. For those of you who have a Wet-to-Straight out there, do not worry! Just use it on dry hair for less damage.
I really liked the features on the new Pearl, digital flat irons, but next time I will take it out of the package before purchasing. If I plan on purchasing online, I will personally look at it at the store then make my purchase online. For example, the New Remington (Anti-Humidity) has plates that close all the way.
Also look for gaps at the end of the plates that may catch your hair and pull. A good flat iron should have no gaps in between the plates, they should be the "floating" type and also they should have no gaps at either end to minimize catching and pulling you hair.
