Heats up quick , does what it supposed to. Very affordable.
I have been using this flat iron consistently over the last couple of weeks, and here are my thoughts and views on the product, itself, and how it performs.
My hair is rather thick and naturally wavy and it rarely ever just does what I want it to do. It requires high heat and styling tools and products if I am trying to achieve a sleek and straight look. With this flat iron alone, I have not been able to achieve that look. I feel that 410 degrees is just not a heat may possibly not be high enough heat for the texture of my hair.
I also had a hard time reading the digital temperature setting. I think it would help to have a backlight with this setting.
Upon receiving this product, I noticed it had a very new smell... that of a product which was brand new and had never been used. The flat iron smells somewhat like burnt plastic when it is first turned on and I did smell it several times after the first use. I don't smell it anymore though and it wasn't that bothersome to me. I just associated that smell with it being brand new and recently manufactured.
In all fairness, I think that this is a pretty good product when compared to others in the same pricing bracket. It's a good value for the price. I have been a long time user of Remington styling tools and have had favorable experiences with all of those which I have ever owned and used. This particular model may have not been my favorite, but it was not at all a bad product. I would recommend it to others... It just wasn't the best model for my particular hair type.

I use my 1" Flat Iron with Anti-Static Technology daily and my hair looks really pretty afterwards. I like the quality of it as well as the color of it. It feels really comfortable in my hands when I'm using it on my hair. It works really quick and it also heats up really quick. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
They've stepped up their game! My hair is hard to manage. Straightening took half the time with less heat and it restored softness and shine to my hair. The straightening held too! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
