Best flat iron?

What's the best flat iron you've used that's under $100.00? I really want to get a good one, but I don't know what one! I was thinking about the HAI, but apparently, it breaks easily. I don't straighten often, and my hair is healthy.

    I'm not a flat iron junkie, but the SOLIA is great!

    The Chi was a great investment for me. It was $100. It's still going strong after 2 years. If it ever breaks, I can trade it in for a new one.
    And you know, I'm really not totally sold on the sandwich idea. They're kind of traditional, I know I said that, don't question me about that, but they aren't really all that chic, you know? --fig jam

    I just bought the new Bedhead 1" and I love it! It got my hair straight fairly quickly (of course I still have to test it without blowdrying it straight first!). Five hours later, there is still no sign of curl and my hair doesn't look crispy!

    I've heard really good things about GHD, Solia, Sedu, Chi, and Andis. Personally, I use a Generic Value Product Chi iron from Sally Beauty. It's fantastic on my 3b hair. It gets my hair straight quickly, and it stays well with some thermal protection and oil for shine.

    You might check out some of the reviews on as well. :]
