I have to give this product 5 stars, after wondering whether it would work efficiently and putting off purchasing it,as I have never contemplated cutting my own hair before, well I finally took the plunge ! Having reasonably long hair the shorter cuts do not really suit me so I bought this specifically as it appears to be the only one that cuts hair to the length of 41mm and shorter.
Firstly it works just fine, follow the instructions as to the direction to use the clipper,no need of any force, and voila !, as good as any barber, really. I have had no problems with the battery, and noise levels are what I assume to be what any clipper would give out, and I certainly dont think that it is loud at all.
Another plus side is of course cost, three more trims and the money saved on hairdressing costs means it has paid for itself !
