Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Macondo Battery/charging issue.
During recent 4 yrs. I have changed over guaranty claim 3 products of the HC series. First two of HC 5550 had similar problem with sudden stop during trimming and complete lack of charging, like plenty of custemers on Youtube also had. I am using trimer on the daily basis so I need to bought one backup trimer!!!
Altough, mechanicaly, trimers are good/very good. Much better then electrical part of product.
Finaly, third one I have received is HC 5600 with Li ion batt., but with the same USB facilities!?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sal23 Love everything about this product so far...but...
This is my second Remington trimmer, the last one lasted me for about 3 years with good battery life and another 2 years using the cable to make it work ( battery died, but the blades were still good) after 5 years It was only fair to get a new one!,they dont make the one I had before so I got this one,I've had it for just a month and so far I love it!,the only thing I dont like is that at least on the model that I got there is no way to know when the battery is fully charged,I've seeing in the instructions that came with it a similar model that actually has numbers and tells when the battery is fully charged at 100%, mine doesnt, it only has one reddish light that it tells me that is charging but the light never changes the color to let me know that is fully charged,I hope they can fix that, but it is not a deal breaker either,I am happy with this machine, and hopefully next time i buy my next one, they will have a better model or fixed this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StubbleTrouble Awesome groomer for home or travel
After using this only a few times, I've decided it will now be the only hair grooming product I use. It's perfect for trimming body and head hair with several guard lengths, and it's great for shaving my face without a guard since I prefer a slight stubble look. It actually felt almost "soft" on my face which is nice, and takes care of the hair easily. Easy to clean too since the top part pops up and you can just run water over it.
The ergo design is really well done, it fits in my hand just right. The usb charge capability and carrying case work great for travel. Overall a perfect groomer.

Good motor and easy use except that the foil falls apart before one year, so needs to be replaced more often than once a year.

I purchased this product after my old clippers broke following many years of use. I cut my hair to 3mm about every two weeks. It takes me much longer to cut my hair with this product. I find it misses stray hairs consistently, probably due to the bulky comb attachment. Sometimes I go over parts 5 or 6 times and I'm still not happy with it.
The convenience of cordless is why I purchased this product and it is very useful, however I much prefer my old plug-in clippers.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Adr747 Guides, guides, guides
Bought these about 12 months ago, to replace older Remington clippers. Had issues with my old clippers occasionally snapping the plastic guides (which I always used). These guides are even worse!
Apart from the surprisingly long recommended charge time of 12-14 hours, they seem like a good product..... let down by poorly designed, cheap, flimsy plastic guides that snap even with careful use - the box it all came in probably cost more than the guides to make!
Next step - Customer Services.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by priorww Settings (Guards) Broke After 3 Months!
I received these sheers as a birthday gift and, in less than 6 months and two uses, several of the most important guard settings had broken. Otherwise, this was a high-performing product. But a Ferrari is only as good as the ignition switch, and I can't get far in home hair styling with a handful of broken sheer guards. Beware of this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe666 Powers though my thick beard!
I have tried many beard trimmers, most of which were either returned or thrown away shortly after purchase. This is due to my thick beard and most of the beard trimmers I have tried are not up to the task of cutting it. For example: I have had a Wahl trimmer get stuck in my beard so badly that it had to be cut out (I was not happy). I trim my beard about every three days and this trimmer has been working great. No bog down and I can cut as fast as I like.
