I picked this up because I have the full size version and it's great, but I wanted something compact to keep on my counter. I recently got bangs and blow drying them wet with a round brush is the only way they look right. This does the job beautifully, fast, and doesn't take more than a minute. I only dry my bangs. Highly recommended.
Value for money
I have used my friend's hair dryer of the same model. She had only good reviews. I was looking for a good but cheap hair dryer that works and has a diffuser for my wavy hair. It works great - ionic, with hot/cold settings, 2 levels for "blower strength", 2 attachments - diffuser, styling. Price was $39 only at Amazon EOFY sale.
Very powerful hair dryer. with 2 changeable head ( normal flat blower and silicon with holes that can goes into dry the long hair quicker.
It has small holes on the back of hair dryer to prevent hair coming through to the heating elements.
the disadvantage is too big for my daughter's hand.
over all it's very good hair dryer. bought on april 2017 on K.G Electronic on ebay for $54
Great little beauty
It's easy to use and functional so I can dry my hair quicker without any damage with the Ionic function on.
Multiple speed and temperature settings are very useful for me and my little one as well.
However I haven't used the round attachment very much so I can't tell about this one though, but still great without it.
Best hairdryer I've ever owned.
Prior to owning this, I had a Wahl super dryer that cost a fair bit. It died suddenly one day, so I had to run out to the shops to buy another one for an important event that night. So glad I chose this one! Best hairdryer I've ever owned. It's nice and light and dries my long hair really quickly. Very pleased.
Excellent Product WITHOUT the exorbitant price tag
I quickly discovered that hair dryer technology has expanded since I purchased my last one 10 years ago. My old one was a Philips Tresame, which I was happy with. Not only has the technology offerings increased, so has the price, if you are prepared to spend.
After researching and consulting Choice testing, and working out what I needed in a hair dryer, one important consideration being price, I chose this model.

Questions & Answers
How long can this hairdryer keep working consecutively, please?
I've got a long hair that's length is around under arms. I've have been using this one as main hair dryer, until my long hair's totally dried up. I've been hanging onto this one, about 7-10min every morning. Hair dryer is still working good without any over heating or trouble. Hope it's helpful :)

I am going to buy this model. Would you please give me the length of the longest massage tooth of the diffuser? I hope they are at least 4cm in length because I bought one of other brand before they are too short for my requirement. Thanks!
Hello May, thank you for your question. The length of the volume diffuser that comes with the HP8233/00 is 11mm long, which seems to not meet your requirement at this point. In any case, we'd like to thank you for your feedback. We'll send your preferences over to our development team for their reference in the future.
