I'm looking for a small vibrator that doesn't make much noise. Seems a little pricy for something so small... is it worth it?
This is not noisy but it is not whisper soft. Someone down the hall won't be able to hear this but next door might be a bit close. So for that, I didn't think it was worth the price for not being so quiet. But overall the quality is not bad. Maybe wait for a sale if you want this so it's not as pricey.
Mia 2 is made by Lelo, which is a really reputable brand. If you want something quality, it's a really good brand to buy from. Also, think about the ease of charging this. It's powered by USB, so you can charge it on your computer. That's great for travel. It's also on sale right now, and if you use some eden points toward it, it will be even cheaper. I say go for it. It's better than going through several lipstick vibes you hate.
I have this it came in a kit with a few other things, I haven't had a chance to use it but from what others have said it was weak. I will personally know later tonight (: My new FAVE bullet type toy is the Salsa.
I got mine recently and I love it. I like the size and shape, and I don't think it is very loud- with a bit of background noise, I don't have to worry that anyone can hear it through a closed door (which was big for me since I have really thin walls).
It was strong enough for me, but if you are interested in very strong toys then I have heard good things about the Mimi as a more powerful vibe.
I love Lelo, and all of my toys from them have been worth the price, which may be twice the price of two crappier toys but it will probably last you much longer and it comes with a 1-year warranty and a 10-year warranty if it breaks after that (they will give you 50% off another toy on their site).
The Lelo items offer reliability, convenience (such as the USB charging for the Mia), and a sense of style. That style, though, may or may not agree with yours (as can be seen with their various lines!). Their website (link) also offers useful specs on all of their products.
I'd say it's totally worth it if you don't need SUPER strong vibrations. Its decent in itself and I find it really convinient that I can just plug it into my computer to charge. Plus easy to clean and strong for it's size. AND so quiet!!
