Rated 3 out of 5 by farrah36 GHD has great products but this model has some quirks.
I'm a regular GHD purchaser and wanted something lighter to use than my professional gold flat iron. This model is light but it doesn't sit on the counter well, always falls to one side or the other, due to the rounded face style combined with the rounded cord area. The design looks nice but not practical.
In comparison to my professional model, with this model I have to take very small sections in order to achieve full straightening. There is a lot of flex in the handle which requires me to place some pressure on the handle to get the plates to meet and have the hair straighten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chela I really enjoy using my new ghd.
I love the way my hair feels after I've used the ghd. It's very soft, silky, and smooth. I also purchased the ghd for my daughter who has hair past her waist and she loves the fact that she only needs to use the ghd once on each section and it leaves her hair looking so shiny and healthy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jjenniferjjr Given a Badly used flat iron
I did not get a chance to use this because to my horror when I opened the box the flat iron was extremely used. Had brown gunk on the plates. It was completely scratched and the iron was loose like it had been dropped several times. Cord was unraveled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LALA79 IMPRESSED!
Honestly I bought this flat iron as impulse buy. Yes, I'd heard of GHD flat irons, but never the Eclipse model. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the price, but also due to the lower heat setting. I have thick, frizzy hair (I'm Puerto Rican) and I'm just used to high heat on my flat iron in order to get my hair looking decent...which usually over time ends up frying my hair.
So I bought the flat iron and have been using it for over a month and let me tell you I was and am still VERY impressed! This is the first flat iron I've owned that doesn't sizzle or smoke (or make my bathroom smell like fried hair). It straightens my hair, makes it shiny, doesn't pull or snag, the handle doesn't get hot...I could go on and on with the positives! My ONLY issue is with the material of where you hold/grab the flat iron. I often feel like its going to slide out of my hands when I'm doing my hair. I wish it were made out of a silicone or a more "grippy", rubbery material.
Bottom line: Out of the many expensive and "professional" flat irons I've owned, this is by far the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam26 Better than I expected!
I previously owned the 2 inch Gold GHD flat iron and loved it. It lasted three years before it suddenly quit working. I was so upset because I had taken such good care to never drop it, store it properly, and clean it. When it went out I knew I wanted another GHD, so I took advantage of a sale on the eclipse. Thinking it would take me longer to straighten my hair since the eclipse is a 1 inch I was kind of hesitant. Was I wrong! This straightener is just as good if not better than my previous GHD! I love using it and would highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bri03 Eclipse
I have been using GHD for years now and after mine broke I didn't get another one for a while. I got the rose gold edition over a year ago as a gift and was not impressed at all. I had been wanting the eclipse for a while so I decided to treat myself when it was on sale. It does straighten faster and make your hair more straight but it breaks off my hair terribly. Especially my baby hairs that are half the length they were when I started using it. It's almost not worth it if you have fine hair. It could just be me but I would be cautious if you have fine hair. I continue to use it because it works so quickly and gets so straight but I'm not sure if I would recommend to anyone that has fine hair and a ton of baby hairs like I do. Not sure I would recommend for everyone but it is overall an affective straightener. Probably best for those with thicker hair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cait4808 Does not Sraighten well enough
I LOVE GHD!! I had my last straightener for over 6 years and loved everything about it and my ghd curling iron is amazing! So I was very excited about buying a brand new flat iron. This flat iron straightens the bottom of of my hair nicely, but it does not stay as well as my last ghd flat iron. My biggest problem is that I cannot get the flyaways around my face to straighten... By the time I get 20 minutes down the road, my flyaways are coming up through my hair on both sides. I like a nice sleek look, but with my wavy hair I just can't seem to get the top straight like I need it. Again, I LOVE my last ghd flat iron, so I have nothing negative to say against the brand as a whole. I am just very disappointned in this flat iron in particular. :(
