Does anyone know how much this weighs? It does not show a weight in the specs, need something for granny that won't make her arm numb before her hair is dry.

THANKS!

120V only? Or can it be used in places with 240V current?

When I see a three year warranty on a product the first thing I do is research the company to see if they will even be around to honor the warranty.

According to Goody's homepage, they have been around since 1980 so more than likely they will be around to honor any future warranty claims.

I wouldn't recommend that. That feels a lot like dividing by zero, the implications could destroy us all.

Generally pretty good reviews here! http://www.amazon.com/Goody-Heat-Smart-Temp-Dryer/product-reviews/B006MRM2P6

Folks seem to notice it draws power (as in, makes their lights flicker) but that has more to do with the electrical circuitry in the line - and something to be aware of no matter what you're plugging into the wall, actually. It's a high powered gizmo, after all (says so right in the title!) Likely going in for one - these kinds of things do wear out and it's good to have a back-up unit in reserve - and all things being the same, I'll opt for buying something through Woot! every time :D

According to Amazon, the shipping weight is 2 pounds. And from the reviews, it seems to be lightweight.

10 heat settings??

I understand, say 3 (low-med-high) or even maybe 5, but 10? Is there that much of a noticeable difference between setting 6 and 7? Or 7 and 8? I just don't get the need for so many heat settings.

I'd buy it if it had gone to 11.

In for three. One for me (because the nice, expensive one I've had for years died last week and the one I bought for $10 on clearance as a spare has no attachments), one for my step-daughter since the spare was going to be a b-day present until mine died and I used it, and one to add to the miscellaneous backup gift stash. Add my JumboWoot coupon and you can't beat three hair dryers for under $30.

A hair dryer? Seriously? How many here were wandering around with wet hair waiting for this to come up on Woot!?

Ok, back in the late 70's there was the Grandinetti. It weighed a ton, but it was the best.

Today? You buy a frickin' hair dryer and get on with it.

The heat settings can be very useful when using the hairdryer for other applications than drying hair like removing stickers or vinyl, bubble gum, etc.

Here are "13 Unusual uses for a hair dryer". The variety of heat settings on this dryer will let you find the 'sweet spot' for some of these tasks.

I went to their website and even check the product images on amazon, nothing on the package says 220V. so very likely you can't use with 220V (unless you want to blow it up and start a fire with it)

From my understanding is that most Hair Dryer sold in the US are for 110V only EXCEPT the one that mark as "travel" styled hair dryer. (especially the one that's fold-able ) and those will usually have a "manual switch" that must be switch to 220V before you plug it into a 220 Circuit.

do a search for "travel hair dryer" on Amazon and you will notice most of the results are usually marked for "dual-voltage" usage

Even if they were walking around with wet hair hoping for a blow dryer, our shipping ain't THAT fast.

Found this in the FAQ that WhatsamattaU linked above:

My appliance is not dual voltage. Can I still use it abroad?
Do not use your Goody Heat blow dryers in countries with 220.240 volt electrical systems; use only with 110/120 volt electrical systems.

At last: a hair dryer that will blow your fuse or trip your breaker without having to be dropped (or thrown) into the tub! At 1875 watts, this will blow any 10 amp circuit on high, any 15 amp circuit with anything else on it, and even some 15 amp circuits with nothing else on them. How does such thoughtfully designed merchandise ever end up on Woot...?

1875 watts isn't uncommon for blow dryers. I just checked and my Remington Solutions hair dryer that I bought from Big Lots a few years back for $14.99 is also 1875 watts. I use it every day and it doesn't trip the breaker.

My daughter has pulled my hair dryer off the counter a bunch of times and the back broke off. The fan is still shielded, but another fall could knock the plastic vent off (I can probably just pull it out by hand...it's ready to go). I think it's time for another hair dryer, so I may go for this. I gotta decide if this is any different, better, or worse than the one Costco always has for $20. That one is also an 1875w blow dryer and has the same ceramic and tourmaline claims (goodness gracious, even Costco (and EVERY store you can think of that carries blow dryers) carries 1875w blow dryers!1 Gasp!! Pshhhh).
