    Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

    I owned this model in the past and was very satisfied. when my old one died recently I bought the exact same model again. APparently they did a redesign because it does not produce as much heat. Disappointing. I plan to return it soon.

      I purchased this dryer about a year ago and it did a good job at first, however it started to melt around the nozzle and then just stopped working, very disappointing considering the cost. Not worth the expense.

        This is the WORST hair dryer that I have EVER used!!! I like the style and the weight. I bought this hair dryer twice. The first time it stopped working so I bought the same one thinking it was a faulty hair dryer. The second one worked for awhile and then it stopped blowing hot hair so it would take forever to dry my hair. Worst hair dryer I have ever used. WARNING stay away from this hair dryer....worst purchase I have ever made!!

            Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

            I bought this as a replacement for my basic revlon blow dryer that was 2400 watts. Although I tested the item in store, at home, at 2000 watts there was just not enough power to dry the hair before the frizzy ends started. I do like that the heat and power levels are separately controlled so you have flexibility and it is very light and not too noisy. But, in the end I need more power so I returned it.

              The product dries hair well but can be awkward to use.

              If holding the dryer by the handle the controls get in the way. Subsequently, dryer settings get changed or the dryer turns off. Likewise, if you hold the dryer by the barrel it becomes too hot to hold.

              Overall, the dryer works well. But, because of the inconveniences the product is hard to hold and use.

                        How does this dryer compare to the Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer - item #2125789? They seem the same to me, they both use ionic technology but one also has the tourmaline. Is there an added benefit to that?

                          Great question! Internally, they perform identically. The only difference is the exterior design of each (glossy white vs. rubberized black).

                        What is the difference between this dryer and the Tourmaline Tools 3000 Ionic Salon Dryer
                        Item #: 2273620?
                        I received the Tourmaline Tools 2000 Turbo Ionic® Dryer as a gift. I like the way my hair feels and it dries quickly but it doesn't straighten my hair enough.
                        I cannot tell the difference between these products.
