Great to use
Been wanting to get one of these since they came out, couple weeks ago i saw the vs sassoon cordless crew cut clippers, needless to say it didnt last a week before i cracked it and swapped for one of these... so easy to use and it works great - the curved blade makes it easy to get around the ears and make it all nice and even. Being cordless you can do it all in the shower with ease and not worry about hair all over the floor. Comes with heaps different sized combs too. Only thing im not happy with is that i put off getting one for so long!
The best gadget I have ever purchased
I purchased this six months ago and am very pleased with it.Previously I have had to go to a Barber and I always begrudged paying to come out with less than I went in with,or My Wife cut my hair with Clippers. Now I can do it myself in a few minites. Easy to use and clean although may be better for those with not so much hair like me who just needs a no 2 all over. It can be used in the shower but be careful if you have a partner and she spots hair in the drain! Overall 5 out of 5.

Remington Rapid Cut HC4250AU
Have been using this for a while. Best thing to use for crew cut. So simple to use. Doesn't miss any hair you attack.
If there was a gripe it would be asking that they make to outa casing with rubber for hand gripping. It becomes an awkward to hold when moving around your scalp.

Brilliant for a number 0 cut
I've used mini battery trimmers and big heavy clippers and this is the best!
I do a number 0, no guard cut every morning and this is so much more comfortable. The curved blade doesn't always touch your head along the whole width, but is much more comfortable. The short, palm like design is really nice. Easier to shave the back and front of your head. The best bit is that it can run straight off the cord if you forget to charge it.
Very happy with it.
Does the job very well!
Very easy to use and feels nice in your hand. The wide design and curve of the blade works really well, cordless design feels great for DIY, can swap clip on combs for a blended cut.
Saves a trip to the barber every 2 weeks if you like to keep your hair short and sharp! Cheers. Paul
Very easy to use
After several years of using corded hair clippers I decided to buy the Remington Rapid Cut hair clipper. I read the reviews and thought it sounded like the best men's clipper on the market.
I've used it several times now and am very impressed with the ease of use. It's cordless easily and comfortable sits in your hand and very manoeuvrable over and around your head. It's cordless, easily rechargeable and quick to use.
I highly recommend this hair clipper.
High Quality and low Cost
Decided to try a DIY job on my hair and liked the look of this trimmer and as I’ve said before I always look up Product Review before I make a purchase of any item to get a feel for users experiences. This clipper had a load of great reviews with only a couple of negatives probably because they were lemons, so that was a good sign.
Having had a negative experience with the shaver shop and swearing to never buy anything else from them again, I found this clipper from a seller in the UK and it cost $63 shipped by Royal Mail and arrived with...in a week, they also included a universal power adapter for free! The trimmer is high quality, nothing flimsy about it and runs well, easy to use for a newbie with a 15mm guide all over. I completely agree with a previous poster by the name of Morry from Eddington NSW, who explained that he wishes there was a longer guide with the 15mm being more like a 5mm so first haircut is a crew cut and then second cut, sides and back only so slightly longer on top, then third haircut is back to a crew cut and so on. Great clipper, highly recommend it!!
Buzz cut perfect...
Excellent (solo) hand-held product for a short (buzz) cut. Stubby handle makes it easy to get a clean cut at the back without a reversing mirror, as opposed to the more traditional 'long-handled' clippers. Only negative that I can think of is that 'zero' blade is not quite close enough for me around the sides - but easily covered through the use of an electric razor around-the-back-&-sides. Very happy with this product.
Update: 6th July 2017 - The battery has stopped holding it's charge. So now, it needs to be plugged in, otherwise it does not have enough power to cut hair without pulling. A bit inconvenient, but it still does the job (as long as it's plugged in).
Works well - for a while
I've owned this for 18 months now, and while the battery started to fail within a year or so it's been tolerable until now. Now it has totally failed and I'm going to have to open it up and see if I can replace the cells. It is pretty apparent this uses cheap nicad or nimh cells.
The shape and size of the device are great, but as others have noted the motor is underpowered, the battery is dreadful, and plugging it into a 'wall wart' transformer to charge is awkward. There is no excuse for this - this product absolutely should have a lithium battery and a charging cradle. Otherwise it is little more than a toy.
Fantastic option for home hair cutting. Very easy to use and the comb system works well allowing you to trim to a constant length very quickly. I find the technique of multi directional approach, back, forward and side to side gives an even finish, best of all three haircuts saved at the barbers pays for it.
Excellent compact shaver shame about the plastic clips
I've had one for around 4 months. Very easy, efficient & compact device to operate, however its a real shame the clip on plastic blades break too easily. Of course its the blade I need & use the most. Apart from buying a whole new unit for around $90, I can't replace this small critical piece which is necessary for a good cut. A real shame such a quality device has such a fatal Achilles heel :(
Love it - Used for all over body trimmer
Great innovation !!! I use it for all over body (chest, belly/arms/legs) trimmer... Take literally a quarter of the time with this clipper.
Cuts close and can be used in the shower. Also, used as a cordless trimmer and can be used with more power when plugged into wall power socket.
Absolutely brilliant !
Longest guide not long enough!
Works fine, very big and powerful. The big BUT is that the longest "guide", supposedly 15mm, is really more like 5mm and is too short for me. So only buy this if you like your hair very, very short. (I've been using electric clippers for > 20 years; all I've used have had longer options than this.)
