FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Conair Infiniti Pro Styling Tool

Conair Infiniti Pro Styling Tool

This is a nice hair dryer.  It is significantly more powerful than the current model my wife was using.  The volume of air seems to be 30% to 50% greater.  I did clean the lint out of the old one to insure I was getting a fair comparison.   The dryer has a five year warranty although they want you to include $5.00 if you send it to them for warranty repair.  In general,  I find that policy of requiring the customer to pay for shipping and handling on warranty repairs repugnant.  Not just Conair but any company that does that.  

I did not find the dryer significantly quieter than the dryer currently in use.   I plugged the dryers in side by side and my decidedly subjective sound test determined that there was not a significant difference in noise level between the old dryer and this dryer.    Although in all fairness the current dryer was purchased primarily because it was supposed to be significantly quieter than normal.   Personally I find all of them grossly loud but being  bald I don't need to suffer through that inconvenience.   

Engineering wise, the brushless motor should provide longevity.   The casing seems much more durable than the current hair dryer.   That casing may be the reason it did not seem any lighter than the claimed 18% decreased weight from a conventional AC motor hair dryer that Conair claims.   The old dryer feels much flimsier than this unit.  

This dryer appears to offer greater durability and a higher air flow than my wife's older (approximately 1 year) dryer.  Although pricey the durability factor may offset the higher cost.  The Amazon link below gives a lot more detail on the product.  

From the Vendor:
A brushless motor works with a combination of magnets and electronics to drive the motor; ionic technology for smooth, shiny hair and up to 75% less frizz
5,000 Hours of life - 10x longer than an AC motor dryer; dries equivalent to a 2,000 watt professional dryer
Cuts drying time by 70% with faster airflow and less heat to minimize heat damage
Up to 40% less noise with patent pending noise reduction technology
Heavy gauge, professional quality line cord for extra durability and 18% lighter than standard a AC motor hair dryer

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
