1.0 out of 5 stars Faux CHI, December 1, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is not a real CHI flatiron. It does not work as well as a CHI, it does not get as hot as a CHI, is not made from the same quality material as a CHI, does not come with a 2 year warranty like a CHI, the Farouk name stamp comes off after a week, there is not a serial number on the iron like a real CHI, does not have a model number on it like a real CHI, even the box it comes in is thin cardboard compared to the box the real CHI comes in. At the price paid it is simply a rip off and was returned. In all fairness to there being different vendors mine came from Good Stuff Ever through Amazon - but never again.

I also bought a Chi, from the same seller, back in may. Strangely, mine is fine, and real. I've never had a problem with it, it has the right cord, model number in relief etc.... I got nervous after reading this post and found this website that has images so you can tell the difference (below). I now want to buy another Chi as a gift, and despite my good experience last time and nervous about finding a legitimate Chi from a reliable seller Guess you just have to be wary shopping online...

I watched a video on you tube about how to spot the real chi from the fake. If you look at the pictures that they have with this product, two of the pictures show a fake and one shows the real one. I suspect the real chi photo is a stock photo. Perhaps you have a one in three chance of getting a real Chi since one person says they did get a real one. Sorry, not worth the risk.
