First off I'd like to say thank you to Misikko for sending me the product! I am not paid to do this review. For the matter of fact, I was looking for an alternative to my Remington Sleek & Curl Styler for this trip to Hong Kong and had read such good reviews about this straightener online. Misikko has such great customer services and the product came within 4 business days.

Storage pouch, tin case, silicon mat, comb, eye mask, hand sanitizer, nail files, bath rose petals and even ELF stuff that don't really matter to me but would make a great gift

Compared to my beloved Remington Sleek & Curl Styler (Review HERE) |
More compact in size - about 1.5 inch shorter in length and 0.5 pound lighter in weight
Corduroy-like plastic makes burning fingers harder to happen
Does not come with a click plate closure
Material feels cheaper

My thoughts | 
When the straightener is heated up it takes almost no effort in straightening. It's very light-weighted which is perfect for traveling and not getting tired arms. I do find it performs better on straightening then curling, though its meant to be made for both. For its wide temperature range, its easy to get the job done within seconds. I also think the ceramic makes less damages to my hair as it is styled with a shine even without a heat protection spray. I don't have a ton of hair but I notice some slipping (plates not tight all the way) during straightening that distributes uneven heat, and makes curling even harder to control. However its really mild and the corduroy-like grip does help.

My biggest concern is the material - it feels rather cheap to the touch. Thus overall though it's a beyond average heating tool, it would be very difficult for me to splurge that much on a mediocre quality product. I still prefer my Remington Sleek & Curl Styler  unless I am traveling.
