Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Colin82 Poor Battery Life But Good Product otherwise
I purchased the PG520 around mid August 2013. I liked the way it trimmed. I am a little dissapointed in the foil shaver attachment but otherwise happy with the product. My MAIN PROBLEM is the battery no longer holds a charge for more than just a few minutes. I used the product about 3 times a week. The instruction booklet says the battery is not replacable. I looked on the website to see if I could purchase just the main unit since I have all the attachments for it but could not find one. I hate to toss out a good product in less than a year because of a battery issue. If the battery would have lasted longer I would have probably given this product a 4 or even a 5.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Grippos Product Reliability - 2nd One in 2 months, both died!! DO NOT BUY!
I literally only used this about 10 times total. The battery life is awful!! The first one I had for 1 month, trimmed groin region, eye brows, ears and nose just fine. Then it died, won't turn on at all. So I bought another new one and figured I just got a lemon. Same thing. 1 month, this one died too! The battery life was just as bad as the first and the same thing happened, it stopped working entirely. I have 2 sets of accessories now and no shaver! Horrible. If it wouldn't die, it's fine, but it won't last long at all and is a consumable. Maybe for $5 and throw away once a month or so like razor blade. Sad! DO NOT BUY THIS!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ruday Just Not Close Enough
I like everything about unit except the guards on the trimmer, it just doesn't get as close as I would like it to be. I wish there was one or maybe two more notches on the adjustments that would allow the guards to get closer and therefore leave my beard shorter. Now I'm wearing my beard thicker/longer prior to buying this unit. Removing the guards takes my bear down way two far. I'm kind of between a rock and a hard place with it. I wish there was a solution but I have not found one as of yet. HELP!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RobInMaine Cant hold a charge
I had high hopes for this grooming kit. The attachment selection is great for a variety of grooming applications but the trimmer just cant hold a charge. According to the product package, this trimmer will provide 35 minutes of cordless use. No way! I trim my beard 3 times a week and each time takes less than 5 minutes, and I am in need of charging this trimmer after each use because it simply will not hold enough charge to properly function.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by C1Germany Nice idea, but where is the power...
I searched the market for something like this -all-in-one- kit and decided for the PG520.
I like the design and the variety of attachments which give nearly all styling options, from face to "danger zone" ;-)
Unfortunately my PG has the same "powerproblem" as -RobinMaine-s, it holds charge really weak.
I use it just to trim short/small sideburns and the "danger zone" about 3 or 4 times a week.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ricky Best Personal Groomer yet!
I just purchased this groomer a few days ago when the cord frayed on another model I was using. The cordless feature is definately a plus! The folks at Remington seemed to have thought of everything when it comes to this little powerhouse. Not only does it trim and contour, it removes unwanted body hair, trims nose hair and can even give you a great haircut! I absolutely love it. For the price and the features you just can't beat it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smilly27 Remington review
Got this as a gift for my boyfriend. He likes it alright. For a close shave it takes a really long time going over the same spot to get the area smooth. Not recommended to people with sensitive skin as so many times going over the same spot causes irritation. It's more for if you want stubble the a smooth shave.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by commander Great product for price
The main neg i have for this product is that it keep catching my skin when using it. Otherwise a solid product for the money, just note everything is plastic. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
