          Plugged it in= pop, spark, fume, stink, sizzling sound. I tried my blow dryer in the exact same outlet and it works fine, so not a problem with the outlet.
          I hope this was a fluke because it seemed to be quality, durable and like it would have been easy to use- even though I never got to.
          Still deciding if I will give another on a second chance.

              I love this curling iron, best one I have ever used. I like the automatic roller so that my wrist doesn't have to twist and the cord doesn't get tangled. I like the size and color of the curling iron as well.

                  So easy to use! I have very fine hair with lots of layers. I could never curl my hair on my own before I used this iron! My hair is naturally straight and this curling iron adds so much volume and the curl lasts all day without using any products!

                      I am in love with this!! I had a lot of trouble curling my hair with various wands, and was always burning my hand or just wearing out from the process. This is so easy to use, and I can curl my own hair beautifully now without any aggravation. I would highly recommend it.

                        This is the best curling iron I gave ever used! I am personally not very good at curling my hair with a wand or any other curling iron but this makes it so easy!

                            This did not work well for my shoulder length layered hair. Pieces would stick out as I rolled the barrel up. Too complicated and time consuming for me. I returned to Ulta and went with the Chi Orbit 3 in 1 Curler. I think that will be a much better product for my hair.

                            This product does everything it says it will do! It heats up incredibly quickly and stays hot, all through out styling. There is an interesting odor that it leaves on your hair, but it isn't bad enough to make me completely stop using it. LOVE IT!

                                I was so excited to get this tool. It finally came after a week and a half. First impressions: Heavy duty, good quality and everything you would expect from a Chi.

                                I tested it out on my friend and it was easy to use and produced two very pretty curls, and that was it. We got two sections curled then it just up and died. Now the motor sounds like it trying to turn can't.

                                I'm going to exchange it and try again but this is definitely not what should be expected for something retailing at $150.00

                                If this is a fluke for tool then once I get a new one I'm sure i'll have rave reviews for it.

                                  Even though the product was a bit pricey , after the sale and coupon I was able to get it for a little over 100 bucks. It's worth the money. It literally is idiot proof and does all the work for you so you can relax. I have long straight hair and it takes me 15 to 20 minutes to curl my hair with this product. Love it!

                                      There is a power on and off button, and the ARC also has a manual clip that you can use to release the hair at any time.

                                    Will this work well ok African American hair? I got the Instyler and had to take it back because it didn't work well on my hair even though it is relaxed.

                                      Yes, the Automatic Rotating Curler can be used on all hair types. The temperature control allows the curler heat to be set for your specific hair type.

                                      This product is not dual voltage. It will require a converter and plug adapter to use internationally.
