I just used this straightener for the first time in the UK and it worked excellently with my power adapter. Hasn't burned out or stopped working or anything. Even though the reviews say it no longer comes as a dual-voltage appliance, it seems to work fine abroad. The manual that came with it was rated from 120-240 volts (I believe, not in front of me right now). I have thick, course, long, hard to straighten African American curly hair and this straightener worked great with a couple of pass throughs on a med-high setting. The indentions on the adjustable wings serve as a great built-in "comb" for raking the hair right after it passes through the straightener.
I was a little bummed that it doesn't have floating plates and it was weird at first since that's what I'm used to using on my CHI, but for the price, I'd have to say it works just as well if not better than my CHI.
Also, I thought I was ordering the red one, but got the blue/purple one in the mail, which is fine because I prefer those colors, but just be aware if you're ordering and expecting to get a certain color, you might not!
