1.0 out of 5 stars Remington = Pathetic!, 23 Dec 2013
This review is from: Remington HC5950 Touch Control Hair Clipper (Personal Care)
I purchased the Remington HC5950 5 weeks ago. The touch controls looked to be a nice touch and a bit different but these are this Hair Clippers biggest downfall. They are terrible.

Save yourself the aggro & go for an entirely different hair clippers. Remington's warranty is non existent so your better off going for an entirely different make altogether!

The touch controls have a mind of their own & operate automatically. I can have the hair clippers on a flat table & sporadically they will adjust the length of comb, change between the three power modes, alternate between different screens etc. They continued acting this way until the battery finally died. Not a good start!

Within minutes of putting the clippers onto charge, it started working all by itself yet again. I tried to switch them off but they just continued going. I took them back & exchanged them for another one.

The second attempt was more successful. This one didn't have a mind of its own, well only for the first 3-4 weeks. After this, they started to go exactly the same way as the first set & could not be switched off. I had to wait for the battery to die.

They came with a 3 year warranty so I contacted Remington. Being that these were less than a month old & have ended up doing exactly the same things as the first one, there has to be some kind of inherent fault. Remington were not interested & refused to repair or replace them. They claimed the clippers were fine & it was a case of them deteriorating & failing due to normal wear & tear. The Remington warranty looks good on paper but in reality, its non-existent.

Reading other reviews on here & seeing that others are having exactly the same problems led me to believe that this particular model has some pretty major flaws/design faults. A hair clippers that has a mind of its own & cannot be controlled are of no use to anyone. The Remington warranty proved to be as rubbish as the hair clippers themselves. After this farce I'm going to go for an entirely different brand & one that doesn't have these uncontrollable touch controls.
