The unit I received had few scratches on the base plate, looks like a factory reject or off shelf product from a store that used it for demo purposes. It heats fine though, not very heavy to hold. A little pricey I feel. The build quality is okay, nothing special, looks sorta like what other brands are offering at a lower price but being Philips one would expect it to last longer.
I don't use it much but a Very good product as well as light weight too. I am not giving 5 stars just because when it's hot it smells like burning plastic which I didn't expected from philips otherwise thumbs up.. 👍🏻
