      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      I have purchased two of these hair dryers. Both of them stopped blowing hot air right at the one year mark. They worked well for one year, but for the price, I would expect more than a year of use. After my first died, I bought another thinking it was just one of those things. After the second did the same thing, I think it's safe to say you will only get one year out of these dryers which is not coincidently when the warranty runs out.

        Purchased Chi thinking it was a good brand name and had a previous Chi hair dryer that I was satisfied with. Less then one month of use it got stuck on the cool setting with no heat. Returned it and was pleased with Ulta's return policy no problem getting money back. I will not be purchasing this design again.

                        I didn't feel like this dryer was that much better than a much less expensive brand. It quit blowing hot air after 2 1/2 years. I do not use it daily. That is longer than some reviews, but for the price, I would have expected it to last longer.

                          My only issue with the Chi hair dryers is that they don't last more than a year. I use the dryer almost everyday and it takes me about 20 minutes to complete drying my hair, so maybe that's why. I do repurchase a new Chi dryer then the current one dies.

                                Had high expectations since the hair stylist in the store recommended it. I keep my hair routine at a minimum during the week trying not to fry my hair out too much so the dryer is on for literally less than 5 minutes. Cold hair started blowing right at the 1 year mark. For the price you would think I would have gotten longer use since I barely use it. I'm going back to the $40.00 dryer that lasted 5 years.

                                  Bought this because my Sylist was using it on me. I also choose this one because it was not cheap nor the most expensive. It is fairly lightweight. I noticed it cuts my time of drying by about 20 percent. The two end nozzles it comes with work great and I now have less frizz by using them instead of using a dryer that has nothing on the end. I really like the thicker cord that comes on it...my other one always got tangled! Not the case with this one. Overall very happy.

                                      To remove the back air vent, twist the vent toward the direction labeled "open". This should release the vent and allow you to pull the vent out.

                                      Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer feature identical features other than the color. Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer are both 1300 watts, while Miss Universe Professional Dryer is 1800 watts (which means that Miss Universe has more powerful airflow for quicker drying time). All three dryers are ionic, which helps to reduce drying time and to keep hair smooth and shiny.

                                      No, CHI and Ultra CHI dryers do not have retractable cords.

                                    Which of your CHI dryers (including this one) have HIGH blow dryer settings, where the air comes out faster? (It would be helpful if you included product descriptions in your ads.)

                                      Ultra CHI Pro Dryer, CHI Pro Dryer, and the CHI Rocket Dryer have high/low settings. The CHI Touch Screen Dryer has a touch screen setting so you can control the air flow from High to Low.

                                    I am traveling to Europe and was wondering if this is dual voltage? I currently live in the US and am using it on our standard 110V electric system. Thanks

                                      CHI and Ultra CHI dryers are not dual voltage and will require both a converter and plug adapter (not included) for international use.
