Rated 3 out of 5 by GHDVetran Not like they used to be
I purchased my first GHD in 2006-2007, there was nothibg wrong with the iron but thought I'd upgrade as mine was starting to get a little tired and I had started having to go over my really wavy parts multiple times to get them straight. I ordered the max this time as I was told it's better for my thick wavy hair. I was hesitant to purchase based on the mixed reviews but decided to buy it and see for myself.
The verdict- it's a fair iron but is nothing in comparison to the older models. I found myself using my old one to go over the style I had done and got a better result instantly. My hair was not as shiny and smooth as the finish I get from my almost 10 year old iron.
To be fair it does an ok job but not fabulous and nothing like the old models. Heats up quick and has an auto shut off which is great. If you know nothing else you'll probably like it, if you're a GHD veteran like me, you might be disappointed.
I've sent mine back for a refund and going to try the platinum to see if it's any better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leesa Best straightener EVER!
Heats up ultra fast, works well on thick curly corse hair. Best straightener I've ever bought. Well worth the price tag.
I've had a lot of different straighteners over the years and GHD is most definitely the best in terms on how well it straightens hair and how fast it heats up. Brilliant

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sheenz Not as good as I expected
Based on previous reviews I thought this product would be absolutely amazing and better than my normal GHD Gold Styler just better as it was a max plate however, i dont feel that the styler gets as hot as my other styler and as a result I feel I go over the same section of hair more which cannot be good for my hair!
Other than that I do love the GHD straighteners!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neat51 The best straightener on the market
For supreme heat and lightening fast heating time this is the product to buy. Easy to use and compact, look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Woodsyk Great upgrade
I originally had a thinner plated Ghd and decided to take the plunge and upgrade because I have thicker hair. Best decision I made. If you use it properly (not over sectioning the hair, straighten your hair in even pieces and not in thick clumps) you can get salon results. It's left my hair smoother and straighter for far longer, considering my hair would easily retain back to a slight wave at the least if there was too much humidity in the air. Paired with the smoothing serum my hair feels so smooth and healthy even though it's coloured blonde which runs the risk of it being dry. If you're unsure about purchasing this item: JUST DO IT.

I love the big plates which cuts down the time it takes me to straighten my hair. The curls produced are excellent.

This is my second GHD. The previous straightner lasted 9 years which i think is fantastic for what you pay. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Howe65 Great Present
I recently bought the ghd gold max styler for my gorgeous daughter. She loves it. She had an earlier model which I have now inherited. She loves the new product. The wider panels make styling her long hair much quicker and easier. This product is a highly recommended. A great Christmas present idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christine88 Straighter hair quicker!
I have always had the regular sized ghds but I decided that I wanted to try the ghd V Gold Max styler. I have very curly, frizzy hair but it is quite fine and dry these days due to colouring. I don't spend anywhere near the time I used to straightening my hair and the results last longer. In the past I have straightened my hair and it is wavy within an hour but with the ghd V Gold Max styler this isn't happening. Only downside I can find is that I have some shorter, wispy pieces of hair around my face that I find difficult to straighten with the wider paddles but other than that I am over the moon happy with my purchase :D

Rated 2 out of 5 by Amy12345 This product did not help me
I purchased the ghd v max to help me straighten my hair quicker and easier than my original ghd. The promise of being able to make easier work for curly or thick hair did not work for me. With the plate being thicker it prevented me from being able to get right to the roots of my hair to straight. My hair is very thick and very curly and after the job I was still left with waves at the top since the plate didn't let me get close enough to my head. It took the same about of time as my original ghd if not longer due to trying to get the waves at the top of my hair out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bechewett Doesn't work on thick curly hair
After reading the reviews and spending a lot of money, I expected a lot from these straighteners. They were recommended for people with naturally thick curly hair. I have been straightening my hair for over 20 years and found these the worst ones I have ever had. They pulled my hair and they did not seem to get hot enough. It would take a long time to get my hair straight and it would be kinky by the afternoon, no matter how small I sectioned it and how much GHD heat spray I applied. Very disappointed, my hairdresser has given me a full refund and I am back using my old wet and dry straightener which cost a fraction of the GHD price.

Doesn't grab at my hair doesn't make my hair frizzy, total control.
Even though its wider, I can still get to my roots easily. Even around my fringe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ak2015 A sound investment
I bought this GHD to replace my original GHD that was going on seven years. I was so excited to use the Max styler as my hairdresser uses it on my hair all the time, however after several uses, I've concluded that this is good product, but seems overpriced compared to what else is on the market these days. I am glad I bought it, but still not sure if it was completely worth the money. Hopefully it will last as long as my original one.

In a word, brilliant.
I just wished it had a hook on the end so I could hang it up
when not using the iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mia832 The wide plated Max v
The wide plates on the ghd Max v is great for thick long hair. The wide plates make it easy to get through all my hair its also easy to hold. I colour my hair also and I always get a nice finish to my hair. Its easy to use and I love the safety cut off just in case I leave it on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anita13 I am not sure if it is me or my straightener but I am not happy with the product I have
I have ghd max, I used to have ghd Classic and I had it for 6 years and wa still going well. Have it to my sister! I used to curl my hair with ghd Classic worked amazingly then I was told that ghd Max is better for curling and straightening for the hair type that I have but it is not true! I miss my classic straightener! :(

My original ghd irons were about 10 years old. I recently bought the gold max styler as wanted a second ghd with the larger plates. I absolutely love it, what a difference, my new styler makes my hair feel softer, smoother and straighter than my old model..... I really love the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicole175 No other hair straightening styler compares!
I love this particular styler because the plates are wider which means it takes less time to straighten my extremely thick and long hair. I had a GHD for many, many years and it finally stopped working in November 2014. I decided to purchase a cheaper brand instead which turned out being a huge mistake. My hair never seemed to stay straight during the day and it became very dry. I purchased another GHD in June 2015 and I'm so glad I did - finally my hair seems normal and healthy looking again - plus it's super straight. I can't recommend this product enough.
