The flexible guide 2D comb automatically follows every curve of your head and neck to achieve an even trim easily and comfortably.
Skin-friendly blades and comb
The Philips QC5530 is designed to make the whole grooming experience is kind to your skin. That's why this clipper has been designed with rounded edges on the blades and combs. By avoiding sharp edges, the clipper reduces scratching the skin for a more comfortable experience, allowing you to use the clipper as often as you want, maintaining your style without irritating your skin.

How to get the best results
Turn the swivel head left or right to the desired clipping position. At each position you will hear a ‘click’. Always adjust the position of the cutting element by turning the swivel head. Do not turn the cutting element or the comb attachment. The swivel head allows you to hold and use the clipper like a styling comb. Do not turn the swivel head more than 90 degrees to the left or right. You can move the clipper in different directions on your head to get the desired results. This hair clipper can be used for clipping and contouring your own scalp hairs.

Philips QC5530 is equipped with self-sharpening stainless steel blades with contour following comb type.
100% washable hair clipper
Most hair clippers can be difficult to keep clean, as inevitably there are hundreds of tiny hair clippings which can collect around the clipper. For many clippers, washing them under the tap can compromise the effectiveness of the blades, reducing their lifespan or causing them to stop working completely. Conveniently the Philips QC5530 does not have this problem. This clipper has been designed to be washed under a tap to ensure you get a thorough clean in seconds rather than minutes.

I used the "medium" comb on its longest setting to achieve the length I wanted. I were pleasantly surprised when the end result was a great even cut all over. Trimming loose hairs at the back of your head is hard but the rotating head and hand mirror makes it easier.
The quality is great and Phillips seem to have put a lot of research into the development of this product to make it as easy as possible for the end user to operate.
4 Stars because even though it is a great product, for the price I think it should have included a case/ bag of some sort for storage.
I was always quite happy with my Babyliss clippers until I started to use these. They are nice and light without being too light and plasticy and glide over my head so smoothly that it takes half the time to cut my hair. The clippers come with three comb guides, a precision trimmer, a cleaning brush and a handheld mirror. The mirror has an elastic hand strap so you can use it with one hand and not worry about dropping it. There is no hairdresser's cape or carry case included with this item which is a slight negative but can be forgiven for the quality of the items you do get.
I normally cut my hair down to grade one (3mm), and was worried when I bought these that they wouldn't cut as short as I like, but using the shortest of the comb guides (1-3mm) I got a perfect cut at 3mm. I even went a bit shorter to 2mm and will use this setting from now on - but beware - 1mm doesn't sound like a big difference but it's quite significant, especially, if like me you are blonde haired. I now look completely bald!
The rotating head on the clippers is a great idea but does take some getting used to - persevere and you'll get there in the end!
All in all, I would highly recommend this item and am so glad I bought them myself - any doubters should take the plunge and wouldn't regret it!
Easy to use, easy to clean, no design flaws, good battery, overaly performs as advertised*.
I read on other reviews that they had issues with the flexible plastic cuting shorter in the middle, but this is not true, some of them were used to their previous models and put too much force when using. You just have to not put excessive power with your hand when using, let it slide wthout pressing it down and it will do the job. I got imediately used to it and had no problems whatsoever from the first time I used it.
I've only had this for about a month, 2-3 uses so far, so I have no data on its viability/endurance at this time.
*EDIT: I've had this product for 1+ year and it has proven rather durable, its changeable heads have also survived trips tightly packed into luggage.
*small exception is that it does indeed need some minimum lubrication despite what the company says in the descritpion - just a few drops every 2-3 months from a small vial of oil included in the package, quite easy to do.
Guards go from 1mm-30mm, can also be used without a guard for tidying sideburns etc. Blades are self-sharpening/maintaining so no worries there. Also waterproof but I don't trust them/me quite enough to stick them under the tap just yet; the typical brush is included for a quick clean. There's a mirror included to help you see the back of your head, nice touch. Unfortunately no carrying pouch so bit of a fumble to get them back into the box... nevermind.
Charging takes 1hr to fully charge which equals 1hr of cutting time... nice and quick, other clippers always took an age to charge and I had to think 'ahead' to charge up beforehand. A flashing light indicates when charging and a solid-state light shows when charged. They can be used with the charger attached for emergency head sharpening events, but much better to use cordless.
