Good Enough to do the job
This is our 3rd Philips steam station. It is hard to go back to standard iron after using one of these. However, these are not cheap product and from our experience they only have an average life of 4 years. So we decided not to pay more for higher model and got this model GC7920. It has auto-shut off and reasonable price at $279. Plus they were having $50 cash back promo which was a bonus.
The first product was faulty. On second day use, the Decal light was flashing when switched on. We had to switch off and on from power point to reset. It h...appened every time. We contacted the Customer Service and was advised to go back to the Retail shop for a replacement. Same issue with the replacement, but just when we were just about to give up and return the product, it was working fine. The performance is as good as our previous ones. The small size is good. The build quality however, is not as good and 'solid' as our previous ones, and the water tank is not built-in and needs to be removed to top up. Overall it's a good product. Hopefully this one will outlast the old ones.

It’s ok, but..
My first steam station was Phillips and I was very happy with it until it’s just stopped producing steam out of blue. My husband bought me new Tefal which I didn’t like much but it did good job until water tank started leaking and forced me to buy a another one.So, I run before my husband find out,to get my Phillips brand back into business. I bought this one thinking it will be as good as my first which I can’t find it anymore. With this one I must say I am not very happy. Considering this is my third iron steam station,and I am able to compar...e it. I must say it’s light in hand and good looking, I like removable tank, find it very convenient to fill up ( no messy drops around it), Heating time is very short and ones it heats up, it lets you know with the sound that is ready to be used. But I am not happy with the steam. When you press the button to start ironing it takes more time ( than my previous irons) to build the pressure to release the steam on clothing. By the time you lift up the iron to have another go, THEN it’s starting releasing a proper steam from iron plate. It has a good steam pressure but when it’s in the air not while it’s on the clothing. I find myself disappointed because of my higher expectations. None of my previous iron stations didn’t do that. For my opinion steam is the most important part. It’s kind annoying because that extend your time to do the ironing. I would like to know does anyone have the same problem. I am still using it, but thinking of buying a new one to replace this. I have bought Tefal iron steam station for my daughter, and can’t wait just to see if that does the same thing, as this one.

Lightweight and efficient at an affordable price
I had to replace my old Steam Generator and that brand and model had been discontinued, sadly.
I wanted a replacement which had the intuitive soleplate which isn't operated manually. I also wanted one with a locking mechanism. This steam station has both. It irons delicates and linen both very effectively and quickly. It emits copious amounts of steam. It also vertical steams well. ( I tried a silk dress).
This is a much lighter and smaller unit which is convenient and stores easily.
I don't like the removable water tank. It is an extra step i...
