I have these ones (I think ) and they are very good, by hair is thick and wavy and they straighten it v quickly. They were rather cheap as well, not sure exactly what though...and they get very hot.... dont stand on them...
Well if you aren't on a budget you could go for GHDs obviously, and they are fantastic. I have some Morphy Richards ones I think they are like Mark Hill ones and but they have really wide plates. The best ones I have ever had infact came from TK Maxx and were £25- Morphy Richards Head Gear pink straightners. They get really hot and have thin plates so are more versatile when it comes to straightening, creating flicks/curling, I loved them and I would probably still be using them now if I hadn't of thrown them at a wall. Hope this helps a bit.

I have those as well, and I'm not too impressed. They do an okay job, but they don't get hot enough for my liking.
I can get a much straighter effect with most of my friends straightners.
They are okay for small areas like fringes etc, but I wouldnt want to use them on my whole head.
I have Remington Protect & shine ones which have the Teflon woven sort of plates. They distribute heat evenly and have an adjustable heat. They're not as hot as some of the others (go up to 200C) but i'm quite cautious about protecting my hair and if your hair is thin i think a very hot straightener would be too much. I only have short hair which is fairly manageable so i don't need anything too hot.
Remington ones are generally good though. The ones above i used to have some similar, and they were great, lasted a couple of years. Not sure my new ones are much better, but i only replaced them as the ceramic coating had peeled off and they were burning my hair. So yea, I would recommend Remingtons.
