Excellent, works well
All attachments works well and the battery charge lasted my 3 week long vacation. The 30 mm and 20 mm trimmer doesn't get jam or clogged with hair. I also didn't experience any bite on my skin. This for light to medium grooming, the shaver is just for clean up of a trim, don't expect it to be a full feature shaver. Glad to replace my older one and bought 2, one for me and one for my teen son.
My experience of the PG-350 product is exactly reflected in the poor 1/5 reviews already listed here; the built-in batteries don't last. They're supposed to be rechargeable but are clearly not of sufficient quality to last beyond a couple of years. I reported this to Remington Consumer Helpdesk and received a response from Spectrum Brands Australia. They asked me to return the product to them at Locked Bag 3004, Braeside, VIC, 3195, with a covering letter. This I did and I received a new replacement PG-350 a week or so later. If it lasts longer than the last one I'll happily upgrade my star rating but for now I'm giving it 2/5. They do however get 5/5 for customer service!
If I could rate under 1 star I would!.
This product will last around a dozen trims at best i've found. Had replaced several times. On the final replacement, same issue: Worked for about a month and then won't hold charge for a second even after leaving on charge for a few hours.
So I decided to find out the issue.
An electrician friend of mine pulled the unit apart for inspection. Conclusion: Very poor quality Ni-Cd AA-sized batteries. 2x 600mAh 1.2V each. No chance of what would be considered reasonable to service this unit long term!
Waste of money
I have owned a PG 350 for a few years.
It works but is of poor quality using thin and weak plastic parts very prone to easy breakage.
Rechargeable batteries cannot be removed for replacement and last only about 2 years.
Thereafter the device must be used until charge has gone and then recharged immediately to be used again to complete the job.
Using the gauge to cut a number 1 doesn't get close enough to the hair.
Just used my new PG350 today after having a "number 2" at the local Barbers four weeks ago. The gap between the cover and the actual cutter doesn't allow the hair to be cut even when using the setting 1. The plastic settings attachment holds the razor too far from the head, even set on 1. Surprising that a company like Remington has put their name to this shaver, didn't anyone test it out!!!
Decent for a teenage beard
I picked this up as I was desperate andit was ok at first (for a light beard). However as my facial hair grew thicked this simply lacked the power to keep up. The trimmer seemed to grip on to the skin of my neck, and the foil shave simply was to weak to do it's job. The nose trimmer doesn't work at all.
Overall if you're a teenager with little money and a beard consisting of bumfluff pick one up. Otherwise don't go near this.
I have charged the battery in the recommended manner but I get less than 15 minutes usage per charge. To trim my beard takes three attempts; 1st day, I trim my neck, then recharge the battery overnight; 2nd day, I trim most of my beard, then rechargethe battery; 3rd day I complete trimming and redo my neck. I'm thinking of removing my beard to save time!
Extremely poor battery life.
Waste of money
It lacks power, you guys with tough hair will find it mostly useless. Horrendous battery life. Just over 12 months old and the battery won't charge. The attachments are little more than gimmicks or add ons to make the product look more professional that it is. Its basically toy status and should not be considered as a real option for facial grooming.
Pretty much everything, it's a waste of money.
Another jack of all trades, master of none
I have owned this for 1 year, and surprised it still works. It comes with a host of attachments, shame none of them do a good job. I use the stubble trimmer on the closest setting, and it takes me 15 minutes to go over my face and neck as I find myself going over areas 5, 10, 40 times or more. The nose and ear trimmer doesn't get close enough and I found myself buying a dedicated device for this. The mesh screen attachment is just weird and useless. I get 2 beard trims out of it before the battery is flat, which I am OK with.
None of its attachments do an acceptable job; it is useless.
Questions & Answers
Why does Remington make products for which replacing batteries is like breaking the bank.
In the world of simplicity, when the batteries run out of life and are no more chargeable, it should be easy to replace it like many products do.
Or else, Remington should have a replacement scheme. Huh!
