I bought this convenient folding hair dryer when my old travel dryer needed to be replaced, and it just may be the best hair dryer I have ever owned. Of course, the compact size is perfect for travel, but it's the power of this little baby that really sealed the deal for me. Although I've tried other 1875 watt dryers, for some reason, this particular model seems to dry my hair much faster than any of the others, including full-size dryers. Finally, I've found that when buying a hair dryer, you can't go wrong with Conair, as their products provide years and years of use. Highly recommended!
