This is going to be a Xmas gift from me. I'm not buying a Dyson nor do I want to spend $300.

Did you click the link...? It's $124 and you can get another $20 off with Masterpass promo.

I said it's a $300 dryer at other retailers.

So I'm just looking around Amazon and I see other dryers with the same price range and they have many more heat settings, 2000W vs 1800 of the t3. I guess I would love to hear from some people who own this dryer what they actually think.

I'm also kinda freaked by the mixed reviews

Unless the hairdryer is wired for a 20 amp circuit, there’s no way it’s putting out 2000 watts from a standard outlet.

The breakers trip on a dual combination of thermal characteristics and magnetic characteristics. it will guarantee to trip in less than .02 seconds if the current exceeds 20X the rating or 300 Amps for a 15 Amp rated breaker.

So TLDR - a 15 Amp household breaker will conduct 15 Amps-and perhaps as much as 21 Amps- practically forever. And your dryer probably uses 1800 W (15 Amps) with some marketing inflation using tolerances to make it sound more powerful than the competition.

When tested, typical 1800w blow dryers only actually read around 1400-1500w. So I’m assuming a 2000w unit will still rate less than 1800w

Fair enough, it's more the mixed reviews than anything. I'm going to keep my eyes open for other deals and I'm looking for more people to chime in on their recommendations for a good quality hair dryer. The nice thing about this one is it's Costco so I can always return it whenever. if somebody else comes up with a better recommendation and it's a proven winner, I'll just cancel my order, no big deal.
