        I think it looks great and works great! The only problem I have had so far is that the buttons to turn on/off OR hot/cold are easily switched by accident!

            Takes too long to heat up and won't blow hot for long and starts blowing cool. The previous Hot Tools blow dryer I had worked just fine but not this one.

                I wanted to like this dryer, it does dry my hair quickly and reduced frizz, but it is so clunky and the buttons are so poorly placed, it kept changing the settings. I am returning it.

                Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

                When I first saw that this was a hair dryer by a brand that I had never tried before, but had heard great things about, and that it was on sale, I jumped at the offer. I got it home and opened the box and was disappointed right away. The gold accents which I thought would make the product look expensive and nice turned out to look like cheap plastic junk. But lets not worry about looks. Functionality. The switches for heat and speed settings are in a horrible spot when trying to hold this appliance; they dig into the palm of your hand. It is semi-quiet, not that that was a huge deciding factor for me.I graced it with a third star only because I love the temperature of the lowest heat setting, which I really like for my easy-to-frizz and color-treated hair. I probably should return it, but I really needed to replace my 7 year old dryer and the nearest Ulta is an hour away.

                    We reached out to our friends at Hot Tools who state that this dryer is not particularly loud. :-)

                    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! :-)

                    No, it does not. The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer features three heat settings: Low, Medium, and High.
