Another Leaker !
First one lasted a month before it started leaking. Harvey Norman exchanged it without any hesitation. This second one has lasted less than two weeks! Same problem-leaking from the main body just above the power light. Surely I'm not the only one suffering these problems?

Not something I would recommend
I didn't think the glide was very smooth. I ironed black pants with this a lot and I found that optimaltemp was always just off, especially for my black chinos and my wool coat it always left sheens
Great iron, easy to use and saves time.
Have used this iron for 2 months, and I love it. Simple to use, just turn it on, wait for it to heat up and away you go. No temperature to adjust, so you don't have to worry about ruining delicate items because the iron is too hot. Lots of powerful steam for those large items like doona covers, curtains etc. Good sized water tank that is transparent so you can see when it needs water and is easy to fill. Takes a couple of minutes to warm up, but beeps when it is ready to use. Takes a little while to get use to how to control the steam to get t...he best results, but this iron definitely reduces the amount of time spent ironing. The iron is lightweight, feels good in your hand and glides smoothly over all fabrics. It is guaranteed not to burn or scorch which is indeed the case. All in all a great product, that's easy to use, and saves time. Very satisfied.

No more damaged ironing!
Couldn’t be happier, no scorched and burnt clothes. Eases out wrinkles. Great for delicate fabrics and woolly clothes. Easy to use, large water tank capacity, self cleaning and stores away neatly.

Light and easy to use
This iron is very light. It works well to any type of fabric Ive ironed. The steam needs a bit of practice to get the perfect timing. I havent had any fabric burn so Im pretty satisfied. The steam iron when in use is a bit loud. The calc clean option is very useful. Ive been using this iron for 6 months now and I only cleaned it once using calc clean option. The only downside is there's no locking mechanism to hold the iron when not in use. But for its price, this iron is worth it.
Purchased in February 2019 at Big W.
I bought this product from BigW on July 28, 2019 and returned it on July 29, 2019.
First the Pros: well designed, easy to use, light weight
Now the cons: only one con actually, it’s pretty useless as an iron. I found that it did not iron well, the clothes were left looking as though they had not been ironed. I think the problem lies with their OptimaTEMP technology, to me the iron did not appear to get hot enough to iron properly. I tried using more steam but that only left the clothes damp particularly as the steam boost would continue after the button had been released and was not so much steam but water.
Yet apparently the product was not faulty.

Great product. Look forward to ironing ...!!! (sort of!!)
Bought this steam station iron to replace my 10 year old (ish) Tefal steam station. Researched the web across many different brands and types up to a price of $250...
This won out as it was on sale $50 off - had the most steam output - quality Brand (Phillips) - good warranty - ticked all the boxes.
Paid $170 for it. Was a bit concerned that it doesn't have any temperature adjustment (like most irons do) but the literature said it won't burn any fabric... Go figure... And that's exactly what it does. From Polyester Polo shirts to denim to linen...

Perfect, able to even steam the curtains
This product works great with all different types of fabrics. It has only done great with clothes, sheets and curtains and particularly with delicate. I was worried at first bit now I have used it, i wouldn't go back to using my old one. So happy with this product and would recommend
