The Turbo, as my wife likes to call it....

I just can not say enough good things about the Hitachi Magic Wand. Every couple and every woman should have one.
Powerful, low frequency vibrations
No batteries to run out
Must be plugged in
Big and awkward

useful review


This is the cadillac of vibrators and belongs in every couple's toy chest. It is clearly for external stimulation, and stimulation it certainly delivers. It can be used to stimulate the genitals of men or women. It excels in bringing one to an orgasm quickly and efficiently. It is loud, so if sound is a concern, you should take note.

This is a plug-in massager that can actually be used to soothe your aching muscles. Ultimately it works best at getting you off. Out of the box, it has two speeds - high and higher. My wife finds that the low speed (high) is all she needs and it can actually be too much. I actually bought it as a "massager" but during the first use made my wife orgasm and she was hooked from then on.

    • All over body
    • Clitoris

Material / Texture

The head of the vibrator consists of a round "ball" that is made of a semi-soft smooth plastic covered material. The ball is connected to the rest of the vibrator by a metal shaft. The shaft flexes a bit but does not lessen the pressure dramatically when you rub it on your body. I would not describe this as insertable. There is no smell that I can detect.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The vibrator is big and has a cord due to it being a plug-in vibrator. It can be awkward and would never be described as discreet. The only thing it has going for it is that some people may actually think its a back massager. I think this toy is appreciated by beginners to advanced users. It has simple controls: Off, Low, and High (or better described as High and Higher).
    • Beginner
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

The entire head of the vibrator vibrates incredibly intensely. It has a rumble type of vibration - not high frequency vibrations. The controls consist of a switch where you turn it on or off and change intensity from Low to High. Some may find it too intense on the low setting and I have heard of people putting a wash cloth between the head of the Hitachi and their clitoris.

The Hitachi would never be described as quiet so some discretion must be used when living a house with others.
    • Easy to use
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

This toy is very easy to maintain. We ensure that the head is wiped off with a toy wipe after every use. We don't typically use lube with it and it is an external use toy so it doesn't get that messy typically.
    • Easy to clean


The packing looks like it came from the 70's - don't think its been changed since then. Simple box that was discarded and not used to store the toy.

Personal comments

This is my wife's favorite toy. She has suggested getting rid of the others in our collection because this toy simply performs like it should - quick very powerful orgasms. Additionally, she has used this toy on me by itself and also during oral sex to give me some mind blowing orgasms.


This is the go to toy in our arsenal. Only one kept in the bed side dresser. I also bought a dimmer switch for it to adjust the vibrations more than just Low and High. We love this and would recommend that everyone have one.
