    Bulky for a portable

    I bought this for travel, and picked this model because it folds and has a retractable cord. In actuality, it's rather bulky and requires some strength to fold the handle in towards the body. Given the amount of pressure required to fold it, I'm often afraid that I'm going to break the whole hairdryer in the process (although that has not yet happened). Also, the cord does not always retract completely on the first try; I often have to pull it out and start over again. A little annoying. However, as a hairdryer it works well and efficiently. All in all, I'm okay with it, although I might not have purchased this model if I'd been aware of its design flaws.

    Great Hairdryer

    I bought this because of the compact size and the price. I tried a longer hairdryer once and kept banging myself in the head, you had to hold it out away so much further and my arm would get tired! I like the retractable cord although that was not priority. The handle does fold, but it works a little stiff and I'm not sure it will hold up after constant folding. I do not fold the handle. The dryer has only 2 settings, "Low" and "High." I use High about 99% of the time anyway so this was not an issue. It does have a Cool Shot button.

    Doesn't dry my hair as quickly as I'd hoped

    I've used this hairdryer for a week now. I have a bob-style haircut and I had hoped, with the ionic component, that this hairdryer would dry my hair faster than my old one did. Sadly, it takes about the same amount of time, however it does feel "gentler" on my hair. So far, the retractable cord is working great; I do find that I need to help "lead" the cord into the handle as it retracts, which is not a big deal. I really like that it folds up compactly and doesn't take up a ton of space in the drawer.

    Good replacement for old ionic hair dryer

    Bought this as a replacement when my old ionic hair dryer died. Was a bonus that it was on sale at the time. Can set to high or low speed, but it does not have separate heat setting (other than cool shot button). Cord retract button works pretty well - somtimes have to work it a little to get cord fully retracted, but that was also true with my old one. New feature for me is the folding handle - it is incredibly stiff and I didn't buy this for travel, so I don't really plan to be using that feature.

    Love it even though purple isn't my favorite color

    The heat settings are perfect. It helps me guard against frying my hair with a super hot blow drying. It's lightweight and more compact that most full size blowers. I don't feel like I'm holding some unwieldly item in the air. What I love most is the retractable cord. It retracts quickly and smoothly without snapping or whipping the cord around. Perfect. Purple isn't my favorite color, but I'm so happy with this that doesn't even seem to matter.

    Works for me. But there's a catch.

    Just what I was looking for. An inexpensive hair dryer that is small and easy to operate. Now here's the catch: I am pretty much bald on top with a fringe of hair on the side. Takes me about 45 seconds to completely dry off. This dryer does the job well, but my needs are probably not the same as most folks and not a real test for any hair dryer. But, the dryer does the job and seems to be well made.

    Great Dryer!

    I love this hair dryer! It's easy for my arthritic hands to hold, and the air stream is strong. I also love that it folds up for less room to store it. The only con, is sometimes I have problems with the automatic retract of the electric cord. It does get stuck, or it goes so fast I get his with the big plug, and that hurts. For the price of the dryer, to me it's well worth it.

    Cheap and Best

    I was looking for cheap hair dryer and found this product for $15. This has best value for money since it has 2 speeds, retractable cord holder. I am not aware what more features costly dryers would have but this one does the job very well. Why to spend $50 or $60 when this product does the job perfectly? This is the Best value for what you pay.

    This is a loud inexpensive blow dryer that works OK. It doesn't come with a diffuser or attachments...just the blow dryer. I liked the retractable cord, unfortunately it eventually stopped retracting. The dryer still works, but it was the retractable cord and folding handle that I liked best.

    Nice travel hair dryer

    I love this hair dryer for traveling! It folds down nicely with a retractable cord, so it is very compact. It gets the job done for drying your hair, but in no way is it a professional quality dryer. The high heat setting is probably too hot for a person's hair, but if you're just using this while traveling, it's really not a big deal. Overall, I'm very pleased with this product for its intended use.

    My old hair dryer was actually burning the ends of my hair. I bought this one and it is very good. My stylist noticed a big difference in the health of my hair! I like the 2 settings and it is light weight enough for me to use since I have a difficult time using a heavy dryer. The retractable cord is not the best for using on a regular basis but works fine for occasional use.

    A good, if a bit anemic, travel hair dryer.

    Needed something for traveling with the kids (I wish I had enough hair to warrant one myself)! Not bad for basic hair dryer but certainly will not wing any awards. Still, for it's price it works for our little trips. Sees most of it's use for showers after swimming in hotel pools before dinner. :)

    While the description reads: Conair - Cord-Keeper 1875W Ionic Conditioning Styler/Hair Dryer - Purple When I picked up the product in the store, the store handed me with a BLUE (color) dryer instead. The manager explained while the description reads PURPLE (color), the UPC for this item matched with the BLUE dryer.

    Bought this for my partner she wanted a hair dryer asap as the old one crapped out. But she didn't want a compact one (she had one years ago didn't like it) so I looked around all the others where too much money. So I get this one and she loves it despite it's size.

    My wife used this for a few years before it started creating sparks. So I got her a new one. Now i use this one as a substitute heat gun and to force hot air into a homemade fire pit and kiln. You can use it for more than just drying hair!

    This was bought for my 8 year old daughter and works great for her. She can dry her hair in her own and has never complained about how well it works or doesn't work. Her hair ids dry, it takes something off my list and hence...that works for me!!

    Cord Keeper Didn't Work

    I was excited to get this item because I hate dealing with the cords on hair dryers. The first time I tried to retract the cord, it didn't fully retract and I had to encourage it for a couple minutes to get it back in. That was strike 1. Strike 2 was that it didn't get nearly as hot as my old hair dryer. I didn't wait for strike 3; I returned it.

    I chose this blow dryer because a free item came with it, and free shipping. It wasn’t until I was at checkout I was told I needed to pick up the item at the store. The closest store is 30 miles away, that’s why I shop on line. Wish I’d spent more and got one which could dry my hair.

    The second time I used it the cord went past the red mark and will no longer retract. I live in an older home with electric outlets near the floor. The cord is shorter than my former dryer and makes drying my hair a little more difficult. I like the power and speed of drying my hair and the fact that it will fold for easy storage.

    I love this product, until now I use it as I bend the handle for easy storage, bending the handle makes me able to put it in a box. Its an effective hair-dryer and serve its purpose, it has an option that you can make to make it just a blow dryier without the heat (but you need to grab that button, its not a switch)
