I'm shopping for one too. I usually use my hooded dryer but I like to have a hand held for emergencies. I was in Sally's today and they have a GVP dryer on sale for $35. PlUs i have a $5 off coupon starting next month. it's says as good as a Chi. Sally's is giving a free mini flat iron that goes to 410 degrees with purchase. I haven't decided if I will buy it. Still looking around.
