I really wanted so badly to love this hair dryer. And I did like its performance...the speed & heat settings were varied enough to be very functional, unlike many dryers that either blow the heat like a hurricane at top speed, or a as light as a whistle without sound....those dryers are really aggravating. But this one has the offerings necessary to please all needs of speed & heat/cool controls. It wasn't super quiet but not obnoxious either, as some are. And the retractable cord is a really nice feature. So I thought I'd found my dream hair dryer. I have short hair, so its per usage is very minimal! As well, I am retired, & though still very active & on the go, my demands are spaced, & so usage varies...sometimes daily, sometimes 4 or 5 days a week. So I checked daily usage for purposes of this review. All that being said, it lasted just shy of 6 months, & with all aspects considered, for just under $30 & limited usage, that's a little unfair & very disappointing, especially from Conair. My daughter bought this first, & when hers burned out, I bought her another for her birthday, at the same time purchasing one for myself. That was back in mid April (2013). Well, mine burned out today as I was getting ready for the gym, & now I'm off to Walmart to get another....I believe in 2nd chances even for hair dryers. :) So I will update this as time passes & I see how the 2nd one goes. For this review, though, it was perfect while it lasted. :)
