Can Remington Convince You to Give Up Your Chi?

The Remington Shine Therapy Frizz Control, Humidity Resistant Ceramic Flat Hairstyling Iron has been getting a lot of press lately, including a VIP (very innovative product) from Good Housekeeping, and a writeup in the New York Daily News as one of the nine smartest buys in 2010.

Here is how Remington describes the product:
The revolutionary Frizz Therapy Iron is the first flat iron to use frizz-resistant technology to protect hair from the outdoor elements, dramatically diminishing frizz (65% less than a traditional iron) and firmly resisting humidity all day (up to 15 hours) to maintain a silky smooth style. The iron employs next generation ceramic plates with special porous properties infused with a blend of frizz-resistant micro-conditioners that are emitted during styling. Complete with digital heat settings that range from 300°-430°F and a one-hour auto-safety shut off, the Frizz Therapy Iron is the newest must-have for sleek, frizz-free hair!
I must admit, I'm tempted. It's half the price of my Chi, and if it worked just as well (and even better), then I'd be all over it. So I'm asking you all - have you tried it? Does it really work as well as it claims? Inquiring minds want to know!!

Wow, I've never really tried one of these before, but they do look nice! I'm too scared to handle my own hair myself..
