I read the reviews on this and hesitated to purchase because of them but I made sure it wasn't through a third party seller...it was through Amazon and I felt safe with that, however I received it yesterday and upon opening it realized something just wasn't right. I have an authentic CHI from an "authorized distributor" to compare it to and this one is not legit. Its an amazing knock-off but according to the company Farouk, its fake. Disappointing, but my return label is printed and it's ready to go back. Some tell-tale signs of a fake: the LED light will be red in color constantly...the real ones are clear like glass and then red only when the unit is turned on. Safety stickers on the unit are the easiest way to tell from what I understand because the real CHI has the safety warning info engraved INTO the plastic. Also, the plug itself should have the grounded type with the safety reset button on it. The one I received had the first two signs but the plug was actually grounded so its obviously a "better fake." Too bad the market is so flooded with these counterfeits that you have to double check that you actually get the authentic product which is amazing, btw. The REAL CHI is a superb flat iron that doesn't fry hair in my experience. I was purchasing this one for my 13 year old because I don't want her to scorch her blonde hair into straw and I can't always share mine with her. Oh, and IF you get a fake one you should go to Farouk's website and report it so it can be investigated..there's a link on the left side of the product info page.

I bought a counterfeit CHI from an Amazon vender. I called the manufacturer and discoved Amazon is being sued for selling these on their site. Fair warning, if any item reads "sold by JoeBlow fulfilled by Amazon" you stand a good chance of getting a counterfiet or refurbished product.

Overstock has a information available on how to tell if you got a counterfeit. The main way is that CHI's don't sell for 50-60 dollars. They cost about $100.

I never buy from Amazon if the product is "fullfilled by Amazon", which means it's sold by a third party vender. I'll buy from Amazon only. Don't waste your money.

I did a lot of research to find out what was the best brand of flat iron prior to my purchase, but the item I received was scratched on the swivel handle and did not perform as I would have expected based on all the reviews. I have Remington brand flat iron that is 2 years old and while it still works it takes longer than it used to to get the desired results with my hair and that is why I purchased the new CHI flat iron. When I used it the new CHI did not do as good a job on my hair as my current flat iron! Between the scratch and the lack of performance, I really feel like it was a possibly a refurbished flat iron rather than brand new. I returned it for a refund (which by the way was quick and easy!).

This CHI is a fake. I reviewed the real product that I purchased elsewhere, but I feel I should take down my review, since it is not reviewing the correct product people are buying.

The Chi I received is not genuine. The power light does not go off when the switch it turned to off. The off/on switch is not a step down from the power light like an authentic Chi should be. It's a good quality fake but is not the real deal. Very disappointing.

LeighLoo's review earlier explains it well enough. I bought this Chi as a surprise for my wife only to let her down. I just shipped it back to Amazon yesterday, and I hope they address the issue soon for the rest of you. Before returning it , however, my wife bought one from an authorized dealer at the mall, and the differences are obvious. Sturdier construction, engraved labels in the metal, and an accompanied owner's manual with guarantee made it apparent that Amazon's vendors are getting away with shipping out cheap knock off's. Just so I'm not completely negative, the Amazon one did turn on, heat up quickly, and it straightened the hair quite well. It just wasn't the real thing. Please know that you're better off going to the store for this purchase.

My daughter bought this "CHI Ceramic Hairstyling Iron" from Amazon. The first time she plugged it in it got so hot that it melted / burned a huge chunk out of her hair. Upon closer examination it was discovered that the ceramic parts had melted into the handle and are now all crooked. When I called Farouk they claimed that this is a counterfeit product being sold on Amazon.

What? When did Amazon become a criminal enterprise!?!?

When my long-used flat iron died, I bought an inexpensive no-brand one that didn't do a bit of good; I returned it. My daughter-in-law said I had to get a CHI so I did. I thought I was just being picky when I was disappointed so I gave it to that same d-in-law to test. She returned it to me the next day to say that it really doesn't heat like the CHI she's had for so long and loves. She says it's lighter weight and doesn't even feel like it's fully closing over the hair - like it's a cheap version. I don't want to pay $300+ for one like my hair dresser uses but this one is going back.
