Its pretty much the newest version of the line that mine was in. Since it was 1500, I figure 5000 has a bigger advancement. And yeah, its really very different to it. Heres a picture.
Clearly the colour is different. Those 3 extras came in the box so I was like ok, I dont really need them and a friend expressed interest in the circular brush so I'll be handing that one to her. The price was a little higher then I planned on paying, but I half expected that as the cheaper ones were just shitty. So this version firstly is far heavier. I'll have to get used to holding it. It has a filter at the back part that you can remove to clean which is pretty cool. Also the material its made of its pretty freaky. Its very smooth but not plastic or rubber, a sort of strange mix of the two. I dont know the term. But its extremely smooth and grippy too, but the coolest thing is it doesnt get hot after use. I mean how often can you touch the nozzle of a hairdryer after using it where it DOESNT burn you? Like never. This one though theres no heat at all. Pretty awesome.
The heat has 3 settings. This is the part thats sort of annoying. Lowest heat has like zero use for me. Medium is a little hot. You sort of have to hold it there for a while before you start to feel it. The third heat setting is obscene. Cant stop moving or it'll start burning. Would of been good if medium was low and there was a medium in between these two. I just need to hold it at a specific distance. Need to get used to it. The power though is strong, double strength of my previous one. So over all I'm pretty happy. Feels VERY sturdy. Lady at the store loved it too. So yeah, thats my new toy. May it last another 15+ years like the previous one. Otherwise it has a 5 year warranty WOOT!
