It worked really up until the day it broke. The top of the nut that screws onto the actual steamer broke off so there's no way to hold the hose on.

Not that this info is really useful but....
These machines (in this price range) are really good at freshening up clothes when pulling them out of the closet. That said, they will not replace an Iron. I live in an apartment so unfortunately I do not have a washer/dryer. I also buy way to many clothes and because of this I do laundry once every 2 months.
After having little luck with the lower end steamers I ended up buying a jiffy j-4000 for a little over $200. It is expensive, but I can now steam two months worth of clothes in about 3 hours. It does a better job than I could do with an iron and it also works on those nasty white polo button downs that come out of the dryer with 10,000 wrinkles.
Tricks to steaming
buy a wall ironing board to hang the clothes up to steam. If you do not want to waste the money on this, hang all of your clothes up on the shower rod and use the clothes behind to create the ironing board. The steamers work better if pressing up against something and using your hand is not a good idea (made this mistake (ouch)).
These things also release a lot of water so make sure you do it in a bathroom with ventilation so that you don't get mold over time growing in your laundry room.

Which is better depends on the material, thickness and tailoring. From badgerandblade.com (h/t Kouros): "A steamer really only works well on delicate fabrics like wool, silk, rayon, polyester. An iron rules when it comes to linen and cotton. A steamer will make your fabric look fresher, but an iron will make you look sharp."
It nice to have to look fresh... unless you wear high-fashioned clothing and obsessed with iron work .

|jimmyc83||I've owned two of these (same exact one) for over 2.5 years. also have a panasonic wireless (yes wireless) iron and the steamer still beats it (not for exact creases) A+ recommendation for people on the fence. they work great on button downs. I recommend you add starch to stiffen the shirts to help with steaming the button areas easier/.|

|gizmotoy||I've been looking at one of these for awhile because I'm so slow at ironing my shirts. Any experience with using one of these with casual button-down shirts? My washer/dryer makes them pretty wrinkly, so I'm not sure I can get away with a steamer or not.|

I bought one of these to use with my steamer
makes it easier to work on steaming my clothes...I can do 30 shirts (a month's worth) in about an hour...you have to put the steam tip on the cloth, some people thing it's a magic wand and that just waving the steamer in the direction of the cloth will get the wrinkles out like magic dust...grab the end on the shirt or pants and slight stretch the material while running the tip (touching the material) over the wrinkles....it's faster than an iron and you don't have to take the clothing off the hanger.
