GHD Straightening Irons First Impressions

I have wanted these for over a decade and when I started working I never managed to save up enough and i always came across other things to spend my money on. I finally bought them today in heathrow airport for £99.99 although I think they can be found for around £84.00 online. I got the classic IV styler.
I had huge expectations for these straighteners and was hoping for a small miracle when I used then for the first time. They are fantastic, better than any other hair straighteners I have used in the past but my hair is very thick and curly/wavy/frizzy and medium-long so i still needed to go over each section a few times. It probably would have worked out a lot better if I'd rinsed the conditioner out of my hair properly. The only downsides really are that you cannot alter the temperature and the plates cannot lock together (as with my previous tresemme straighteners) but thats probably a good thing as smacking the plates together damages them. I recommend you use a good heat protector spray if you don't want your hair to be excessively damaged. I'm excited to try curling my hair with them soon. I think the price is reasonable if you take into account that other, lesser straightening irons are similarly priced. I will do an in-depth review after I've had a chance to use them for a while.
Which straighteners do you use and are you happy with them?
