After being swayed by the reveiws here and getting wise to the warranty situation, I made a point of purchasing this product in a nearby beauty supply store who is an authorized seller and thought I was getting a bargain at $125. I bought it in the hopes of taming the huge, round, coarse frizzball sitting on my head.

Let me note for the skeptical that the product was brand new, unopened in the box and in obvious mint condition. It is an authentic T3 hairdryer. Yes, it dried faster, but left a noticeably dull, dry finish and seemed to strip my hair of it lustre. Not only that but I couldn't get the ends of my hair to lie straight after they had already shriveled up in the fast drying process, and the more I struggled with the ends the more flyaway my hair became. And it appears to be MORE voluminous than ever - bigger and puffier and with the same amount of frizz, only duller looking.

I immediately plugged it out and plugged in my old, falling apart Babyliss Carerra (non-ionic) dryer and afer a few minutes managed to get the ends straight and see some lustre return. I agree completely with the reviewer who made the comment about losing the healthy shine.

I only hope I can get my money back. I will certainly try.

UPDATE - Comparison of T3 Tourmaline to less expensive Babyliss ProTT

though I couldn't get my money back, I exchanged the T3 for a Babyliss ProTT 3000 Tourmaline dryer (I'd have stayed away from Tourmaline ionic infrared labels but apparently it's all the rage and very difficult to find a nice lowtech one that doesn't incorporate this technology).

I like the product. However, having purchased it from Amazon.com, T3 will not allow me to register my product for future warranty because they claim Amazon.com is not an authorized dealer. For such an expensive every day product, a warranty would be nice to have in case anything were to go wrong. I received an email from T3 and a call back both confirming that they do not consider Amazon.com an authorized dealer. When I called Amazon, they had never heard of such a thing. Amazon.com offered to exchange my featherweight tourmaline dryer with another but that did not resolve my issue. I cannot get my T3 Tourmaline Featherweight 83808 hair dryer covered by T3's warranty because it was purchased through Amazon.com.

Verified Purchase
I first saw this hair dryer on a TV show talking about beauty products used by the stars. Then I noticed my hairdresser had switched to this brand. His observations were the same as mine. If you take a lot of time drying hair and the weight of the dryer is an issue, this is a very good purchase. But your hair will be no shinier or softer than with other dryers.

I had a problem with the warranty (see below for original review). I contacted Amazon and they said they will honor the warranty even if the manufacturer wouldn't. Way to go Amazon!

This is from the email I received from Amazon:

"Thank you for writing to Amazon.com with your concern.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience that you have experienced with this order.

Rest assured that we will honor the terms of the warranty for this product, even if the manufacturer does not.

Thanks for shopping at Amazon.com."

This is my orginal review:

I love the dryer, however there is a problem with the warranty. When I tried to register it online with Tourmaline, this is the response I got:

"Thank you for contacting T3 Micro, Inc. the Originator of the professional Tourmaline Hair Dryers and other professional grade equipment for hair styling professionals. T3 Micro strives to maintain the highest standard of build quality, consistency and ease of use. To ensure the quality and authenticity of T3 Micro's products, our products are only available through authorized professional and retail dealers.

Unfortunately we are unable to process your registration and warranty because we are unable to verify that your product was purchased through an authorized dealer.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you however, as stated above, T3 Micro believes that maintaining the highest level of quality and consistency of its products is of paramount importance.

I purchased this product 3 months ago for my wife and according to her it really is not any better than the ionic hairdryer that you can buy at the drug store. Yes it is lighter and dries hair a bit faster but besides that it does not work any miracles. If I could, I would return it...it does not warrant the $200.00 that I paid for it..perhaps that's why the price was lowered??

I recently purchased this item with great hopes. It is a good hairdryer BUT...imagine my surprise when T3 Micro Inc. refused to honor the warranty because I purchased this item from amazon.com. Their response to me and I quote..."We cannont guarantee the authenticity of this item and our generous warranty would not be viable if if we couldn't verify the shipping and handing of our products. Damage can be incurred as these items pass through many hands. To protect ourselves and our customers, we want a direct line from our factory to our distributor (amazon is not approved evidently)." Stephen Gwin, T3Micro Inc. steve@t3tourmaline.com" This thing goes on to suggest that Amazon should guarantee their product!! I think that paying $150 for a hairdryer and then being told that amazon.com is not an acceptable vendor of their product is absurd. Why are their products being sold on a reputable website such as Amazon if they will not guarantee them. This is completely unacceptable. I am angry at this company and will NEVER PURCHASE FROM THEM AGAIN. I also have been letting all my girlfriends and collegues know about this situation so they don't make the same mistake. LET THE BUYER BEWARE!!!
