BATTERY FAILS TOO EARLY ! But there is a hack.
The battery dies way too soon and when you open it to see how small it is, its no wonder !
Just rip out the battery and twist the DC wires together direct to the motor and plug it into a 12 V DC adapter for a SUPER CHARGED CLIPPER !!
Hardwired this thing shaved my head in seconds flat and with a perfect cut,, question is how long will it survive on TURBO : )
Purchased in January 2018 for $100.00.
Battery has failed on 2 different Sassoons
Battery failed to recharge so I returned the product - luckily I kept the receipt.
Replaced product has failed in the same way after a couple of uses.
Worthless. But this time I didn't keep the receipt.
This thing is an absolute shocker.
I'm late to the party, plenty of others have pointed out the very real flaws in this thing. I am surprised Mr Sassoon allowed his name to be put on this piece of junk.
I joined this site specifically so I could put in this review and drive down the average rating. That's how angry I am with it. It was a gift, I don't have the receipt or it would have gone straight back after the very first use. That's all you need - one use - to work out its quality. It's that bad.
There are some 4 and 5 star reviews here that are clearly from people who have...not used this product - you can tell which ones, they read like they were written by the people in the Vidal Sassoon marketing department. I don't know what their motivation is. No one can use this and fail to understand its severe shortcomings. The one and two star reviews are on the money.
Worked for a while
Bought in August 2017. If I take my time it works well - but for the sides and back with the clippers I need assistance. I got 11 haircuts and now it won't work. Green charging lights come on but the cutter won't rotate. Taking it back to where I bought it but I'm sure the disclaimers on the warranty will send me packing. Will write a new review if they fix it free of charge. I can get an excellent buzz cut haircut at the local shopping center for $10 - so I guess I almost broke even but that's not good enough.
Purchased in August 2017 for $119.00.
Don’t believe the ad bombardment - these are absolutely useless
My partner had seen the advertisements touting this as the answer to all his head shaving problems.
It was $119-00 at the Shaver Shop, and the girl talked us into a big bottle of oil too as an up sell.
We bought it on Boxing Day, got home today and tried it. Three days after buying and and one use later, it’s in the bin.
I would package it up and demand a refund, because it's not fit for the use intended, but can’t be bothered paying postage to send it back.
Useless piece of crap
The cut was very good on top of my sons head but the back and sides either didn't cut or were patchy spent 20 minutes going over and over in different directions and still had to get out the old clippers out to finish the job and make it presentable. This product should be taken off the selves and used as wheel chocks for a steam roller.
12 mths old and it's fallen apart
I've had my VS crew cut for about 12 months now using it about twice month no problems at all until today, it started cutting rough and then the plastic middle of it broke away and is now in 3 or so pieces, happy days not :( you'd think for the price you pay for this equipment it would last a few years at least... Oh well looks like I'll be going back to my old faithful 15 year old wahl clippers
