Traveling on business often allowed me to try quite a few hotel hair dryers over the years. The features I like about the Andis hair dryers I've used were that they were not too large or heavy, they had medium heat to medium-high heat, they didn't blow too hard, and they were relatively quite. I've used some hair dryers that almost gave me wrist strain trying to hold them, and some that caused your ears to ring once your hair was dry. The Andis' hangup models seem to find a good compromise between function and low noise levels. I've put these in all our bathrooms at home, since they can be used without disturbing others in the house even if they are sleeping. Some different models of Andis dryers I've owned before would stop working after about a year due to a diode on the on/off switch overheating and failing, but this model doesn't seem to have that issue. Other nice features that this 30975/HD-10L has are that there is no GFI transformer plug at the end of the cord...It's built into the base housing of the dryer. Also, this unit comes with a cord hang-up bracket which can be placed on either side of the base. Like other hair dryers the on/off switch will reset to the off position when it's placed back into the base wall holder. Taking the dryer out of the base again will resume the flow of warm air. Some reviewers have complained of the brightness of the built-in nightlight. It's not annoying to me and it can be use it as the only nightlight in the bathroom. If I could ask for only one additional feature, it would be a way to change the color of the LED light. There are many LED nightlights on the market that let you select what color you'd like the light to have, and lock it to that color. This would be a nice feature to have on this unit, and might please those that think the light is too bright. Last, this unit has a metal wall bracket and paper template, so it's actually very easy to install. The plastic base then screws to the metal plate, once mounted, with two small screws hidden by the hair dryer when it's in the base. Any excess cord can be hidden inside the base, so between not having an unsightly GFI box on the plug end and the fact that you can shorten the cord to just a few inches, if needed, makes for a very clean installation. No cords unsightly tangled cords hanging around your bath to get caught on other stuff. And not having the GFI plug allows other appliances like cordless tooth brushes, shavers, or rollers to be used on the same wall outlet without the adjacent plug(s) being blocked.

We have used several Andis hair dryers in motels and decided to get one. There are two short comings for this model:

1. The LED night light is too bright. I covered it with an opaque (I thought) white tape. The LED light still penetrates through around the edges. The light is toned down now but it is too bad there isn't an adjustment on the light. This is not enough negative factor not to buy one.

2. The unit is quiet but not as powerful as I would like it to be. We used a different Andis model in a hotel that had plenty of power. I believe the model number ended in "92".

I like the concept an will probably buy another Andis with more power and move this one to a guest bathroom.

For $30 it is close to being a great dryer . . . but not quite.

This is a nice hairdryer that works very well and is quiet. The hook attachment to keep the cord off the counter is very handy. The only thing that is negative is the nightlight is very bright and Aqua colored so it really lights up the room. It would be nice if it had a light sensitve switch to turn it off during the day or when the room lights are on, but for the price that might be asking too much.

This is the second Andis Hangup Hair Dryer we've had.....The first one was more than 10 yrs. old and ran great....We left it on the wall when we sold the house and moved....Got a new one for the new house...Couldn't be happier and love the night light feature...

I looked at local retail stores and couldn't find wall mount units. Don't know why anyone would want one just lying on the counter. I was skeptical of the Ionic feature, but I believe my hair feels softer and less straw-like after using this dryer. Feels well made and should last. At first I thought the high speed wasn't powerful enough, but I think the quietness of this unit is deceptive. It's really blowing as much air as my old dryer, which was good, but it's so much quieter that you think it's not as powerful. The night light is quite bright and is a pleasing green, but I wish I could turn it off during the daytime.

We have found the Andis to be comperable to the dryers found in the more upscale hotels. The hang up cord is a great feature that helps keep cords organized. The night light gives plenty of light for finding your way around the bathroom at night. Two speeds supply plenty of drying power. Nice design, easy to mount.

I am quite happy with my purchase of the Andis Hair Dryer. It meets all my expectations. I purchased it mainly for the "hang-up" option, which is wonderful. I also like the little hook on the side which you can tuck the cord around when not using. I would recommend this hair dryer.

Nice quiet hair dryer that attaches to wall. Green nightlight is a little alien-like but it gives off quite a bit of light. I don't need any other nightlight in my bathroom. The cord is long enough to do the job and wraps nicely around the hook. It dries the hair well and I especially like the cool button.

I purchased this dryer to replace an older one that is far too loud. While this new one is much quieter than the old one, it really isn't super-quiet. Still, I have no complaints on the noise, but the flimsy wall mounting hardware is another story. The threaded holes in the mounting plate are extremely fragile, so much so that they both were wrung out during the initial mounting of the dryer. It didn't help any that the mounting holes were extremely hard to locate once the plate was mounted - it's hard to see thru that white plastic shell. I ended up having to discard the original threaded screws and use two slightly larger metal tapping screws to mount the dryer to the bracket. This worked fine, but the original mounting hardware isn't very well designed in my opinion. Other than that the dryer seems to work very well, although I haven't had it long enough to know how well it will last. All in all, I'd give the dryer 4 stars out of 5.
