I RECENTLY PURCHASED (6/25/08) A PINK GHD MK4 STRAIGHTENING IRON THAT WAS BEING SOLD AS A GENUINE IRON, AND HAD USED THE ACTUAL PHOTO FROM GHD.  IN THE PHOTO, IT SHOWED A HOLOGRAM, AND LOOKED QUITE GENUINE. 

FIRSTLY, THE IRON LOCATION WAS SUPPOSE TO HAVE BEEN ARIZONA, BUT SHIPPED FROM CHINA.  NOW I WAS WORRIED.  I THEN INSPECTED THE IRON.

1- THE IRON DOES NOT HAVE A HANGING LOOP

2-THE IRON DOES HAVE A FLASHING LED LIGHT

3-THE IRON DOES HAVE A BOOK IN MULTIPLE LANGUAGES

4-THE BOX LOOKED TO BE A PERFECT REPLICA OF A GHD BOX

5- WHERE THE CORD ATTACHES, THERE WAS NO BLACK RING

6-LED LIGHT IS CLEAR, NOT RED

7-THE RING AROUND THE DVD READS GHD

8-THERE ARE 2 HOLOGRAM STICKERS, ONE ON THE INSIDE OF THE IRON, AND ONE ON THE CORD, BOTH WITH DIFFERENT NUMBERS

OKAY, IT REALLY DID LOOK GENUINE, NOW BECAUSE I WAS SUSPICIOUS,  I LOOKED VERY CLOSE.

FIRSTLY, THE IRON IS VERY LIGHT  IN WEIGHT, NEXT THE IRON HAD A LITTLE BLACK OVERSPRAY ON THE END, AND THE EDGES SEEMED NOT QUITE FINISHED, CHEAP.  THEN THE IRON DID NOT CLOSE EVENLY, THE END CLOSED FIRST, THEN WITH SOME PRESSURE IT CLOSED EVENLY.  SEEMED, ONCE AGAIN CHEAP.  THEN I WAS SURE ONCE I SAW THE BAG.  THE INSIDE ZIPPER BAG HAS A TAG/LOGO THAT READS GHD, AND IT WAS SEWN ON SO CHEAPLY, THAT IN A FEW AREAS IT HAD BEEN DOUBLE STITCHED AS IF SEWN ON BY A CHILD.  VERY POOR JOB, AND THE SNAP READ: GUANG TONG (ITS HARD TO READ, BUT I'M PRETTY SURE THAT IS WHAT IT READ).  IT JUST ALL SEEMED VERY CHEAP.  DEFINATELY NOT WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT.  THEN I CONTACTED GHD AND WAS TOLD THAT THE NUMBER HAD BEEN USED SEVERAL TIMES. 

I WROTE THE SELLER AND TOLD HER OF THIS, AND SHE SAID THAT SHE GETS IT FROM CHINA (SHE DIDN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW), BUT IT IS OKAY, BECAUSE IT IS THE SAME PLACE THAT GHD GETS THEIR IRONS FROM, AND THAT IT IS THE SAME IRON.  SHE WENT ON AND ON, THEN TRIED TO GET ME TO KEEP IT FOR A WEEK TO SEE IF I LIKED IT.  WELL, I HAD PURCHASED THIS AS A GIFT, AND TOLD HER THAT I WOULD NOT GIVE A FAKE TO A PERSON AND TRY AND PASS IT OFF AS REAL.  LUCKILY SHE REFUNDED MY MONEY, BEFORE I EVEN SENT IT BACK (I MADE A COMPLAINT WITH PAYPAL.  I HAD TRIED TO REACH HER TWICE BEFORE WITH NO SUCCESS UNTIL MAKING THE COMPLAINT).  ANYWAY, I AM STILL WAITING FOR HER TO SEND ME AN ADDRESS TO RETURN THE ITEM TO.  YOU KNOW, IS IT ARIZONA OR CHINA, AS WELL AS MY RETURN SHIPPING.   I DO KNOW THAT THIS SELLER SOLD AT LEAST 2 MORE PINK GHD IRONS, AND AT LEAST 2 BLACK GHD IRONS, SO BETTER CHECK YOUR IRON IF YOU PURCHASED ONE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS. 

ANYWAY, WISH I HAD READ THESE GUIDES PRIOR TO PUCHASING.  IT TRULY NEVER OCCURED TO ME THAT THEY COULD DUPLICATE SOMETHING SO PERFECTLY, AND HAVE THE NERVE TO SELL IT AS AUTHENTIC.  HOW SAD. 

GOOD LUCK ANYONE WHO HAS PURCHASED AN IRON, AND HEY, RATHER THAN TRY TO RE-SELL IT AND MAKE YOURSELF THE BAD GUY, TRY AND DEMAND YOUR MONEY BACK, IT'S WORTH A SHOT, IT WORKED FOR ME.
