The blades are connected to a motor by a cam, which slips off the motorised spindle at regular intervals - anything from two minutes use to ten seconds - requiring the blades to be removed and the cam replaced. The fact that this has happened is indicated by the motor noise changing to a high-pitched whizzing sound and the blades stop cutting. If you're using the guard this has to be taken off too before you can remove the blades, reseat the cam and put the whole thing together again. Imagine having to do that 20+ times while trimming your hair and beard. You'll be ready to put the bloody thing through the nearest window.
Yes, it's a lovely design to look at. The battery holds a good charge and the blades are sharp. But the attachments are flimsy, and the engineering is extremely poor. Looking to replace it and I won't be buying Philips again.
The blades cut cleanly and the clipper itself is pretty lightweight compared to most. Even at full charge, the motor seems to be significantly quieter too. This model does not come with a comb and scissors, which seems to be the default accessories you get with most hair clipper products.
There is a rotating dial from 1 to 23 which allows you to flick through 23 different length settings with the hair trimming attachment. Using this dial on the three beard attachments has no effect. When I initially got it, I didn't understand how they could claim 24 hair lengths, yet offer 23. Apparently, they consider the clipper without any attachment to be the 24th (and closest) cut. Personally I would have liked an additional hair clipper attachment for lengths greater than the current 24 settings, but it's not too big of an issue.
The power on/off button is located right beneath the dial, and a turbo button underneath that. To enable the turbo feature you have to press the power on button first, you cannot just press the turbo button from a cold start.
Now what I really like about this clipper is the charging speed and process. It does charge fully really quickly and retains it's charge for a long time. A lot longer than my experience with the others, which would range from immaediately have a depleted battery after disconnecting the power plug, to a few days of intermittent usage. I've managed to get it to retain it's charge over two months with just one complete hair cut, and an occasional trim on the tasche every two/three days on a single charge and it hasn't died down totally yet.
During charging a green light will slowly blink, and remain on when fully charged. After a certain time of it still being connected, this light will turn itself off. When it needs charging, a yellow blinking light will appear when it's turned on. I find these indicators a real useful feature. Some of philips older models just use a single red light when it's being charged with not way to determine how fully charged they are, and no way of telling you that it's about to run out of steam just as you are about to begin the tedious chore of cutting.
The attachments are a little fragile, but the protective case should prevent any damage to them if you store them away after use. It's a shame the organisation of the attachments in the case is a little haphazard.
Will update this review when and if I encounter anything worth adding or editing.
The case is hard plastic with a cardboard tray inside that fits most of it, although once you take out the charger and its cable forget to put it all back perfectly as before... the combs, the little brush and the clipper all will fit.
The plastic combs do not feel as cheap as other models I have used and they are perfect if you need something for beard and hair and you are not planning to go to a moustache competition. Simple to use and accurate.
The blades at the beginning were smooth and you didn't need to pass twice the same spot; now they are still cutting although I start to feel that not as smooth as the beginning but hey I have used it every week for 3 years. The loss of smoothness can be related to the lack of self lubricating oil that the clipper had at the beginning, after so much time and use I see that nothing else is coming out from the small point behind the blades which was dropping a bit of lubricant from time to time. I have tried to drop some oil from another whal clipper on the same spot but it is not really the same and you need to do it practically after every shave and clean.
In terms of heat, I feel that it gets hot but not to the point of burning, although I usually do not leave it on during the whole process y switch on and off and it doe snot stay functioning for more than 5 minutes.
Overall, this Philips is excellent, the best I have bought so far and I am considering in buying it again.
