The dryer has a metallic silver plastic body, but don't let the sound of plastic fool you, it is a very well made dryer and really does not feel like plastic at all. It has Ion technology for enhanced shine and 75% less frizz. Titanium ceramic technology that provides infrared heat to gently dry hair. One really nice feature is the locking cold shot button, it also has 3 heat settings; cool, warm and hot as well as 2 speed settings; low and high. It is the first brushless motor hair dryer available at mass market! It comes with a concentrator attachments for straightening the hair and a diffuser attachment to make your curls look their best! It gets 3 Q's for being Quick and Quite and good Quality.
My past experiences with hair dryers have been terrible when compared to my experience with this one. The Conair dryer dries my hair so much faster and does not leave it frizzy like my old dryer. This is also the first dryer that I've used with a concentrator or diffuser attachment. I was blown away, no pun intended, by the results I got when trying to blow dry my natural curly hair straight. It actually, much to my surprise, ended up pretty straight, with hardly any frizz. It took me about 30 minutes to fully dry it and that was with a lot of stopping to maneuver hair or re-position the brush and dryer. Once I finished with the blow dryer I did run a flatiron over it and that took about 15 minutes, usually a 30-40 minute process after allowing hair to fully air dry. So all together it took me about 45 minutes to achieve the final look.

The difusser works amazing! Was able to get my hair about 90% dry in about 15-20 minutes. My curls were full and had movement, something I never get by letting it air dry. I did not experience any frizz from the difusser and was even able to wear my curls for a second day! One thing I really loved about using the diffuser is I was able to get some volume on the top of my head instead of having it really flat on the top and super curly down towards the lower half.

I loved having two speed and three heat settings, I was able to find the perfect setting for each of the ways I styled my hair. The locking cold shot button was great too, not only does it help lock in your style, it was great to use for cooling my head off a bit while drying.
This dryer definitely gives me a faster drying time and way less frizz. As for the 40% less noise claim, it is quieter than some blow dryers but it's till noisy. After drying my hair with this blow dryer it still felt super soft and not dry and crunchy and I feel that was due to the Titanium Ceramic Technology. This dryer packs a punch with the air flow too, when I was maneuvering it around while straightening my hair, I kept blowing my hair ties and clips off the counter. I would also have to turn it off before laying it down on the counter or it would blow it's self off the counter.
I highly recommend this dryer! It was launched in September 2014 and is priced at $119.99 It can be found at Target, Walgreens, Ulta, Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS and Bed, Bath and Beyond.
