    The buttons are in an odd place ...so you end up changing the settings accidently. This hair dryer was not as good as I thought it would be for the price.

      Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

      I wanted to love this dryer because 1) it's super lightweight and 2) I got it for about $5.00 w/ my Platinum points. I gave it about a month, but it didn't reduce the frizz as well as my older Conair infinity dryer (that I paid full price for) did. Plus, I thought having the buttons on the side would be better, but I kept changing the settings. Returned it.

        Got this to replace a blow dryer I had bought two years ago and, I am absolutely in love. Light weight, not so loud, love the attachments. Great product.

              A:

              There is actually no difference in performance between the two models, as both share the same dryer housing and motor components. We hope this extra info helps! :-)

              A universal diffuser should fit this dryer and any other with a round European-style nozzle.
