Could stand to be just a little hotter I have the 5/8" barrel version of this and I love it. I've compared it to a Vidal Sassoon and a Remington (plugged them in and turned them all on at once). While this one is the slowest to heat (by about 30 seconds), the curls I make with this one are curlier and last longer. The other two made my hair mainly straight with a little flip at the end and they fell out straight within an hour. Since I had used all three on my head at once, it looked pretty silly with some parts being still curly and some not!
Anyway, if you can spare the extra 30 seconds to heat up, I recommend this, but I do have to hold it in my hair longer to make sure I get the curl. (I hold it until a finger placed on the outside of the hair on the barrel begins to be uncomfortably hot.)...more info
