Works well, and being cordless is very convenient.
on 24 July 2010
I have been cutting my own hair for over 20 years, and have used a range of different brands during that time. This is the first Remington I've ever used and is also the first cordless device I've ever used.
I was a little worried by the possibility of the battery running out halfway through the cut, but I went for it anyway, and in the event found that I had more than ample power to get the job done.
The device is small and light, and seems to charge up quite quickly -I left mine on for the recommended time to be absolutely sure. The combs are an easy and snug fit, though are a little but thinner and more flexible than others I have used, but not so much that it caused a problem. They did seem to cut a little shorter than I am used to, so it might be a good idea to start out with a slightly longer cut to make sure you are happy with the length. It does also have a length adjuster lever to make subtle changes in length as well as the comb size.
My hair is very thick, and it did struggle slightly on the heaviest areas, but I simply raised the blade a little and did it on two or three passes and it was fine.
The blades seem very sharp, and I experienced very little 'tugging' as I cut my hair (and I had allowed it to grow rather longer than usual to test out the cutter) and overall I was happy with the final haircut.
The little battery powered trimmer is also a nice device, and cuts sideburns neatly.
Overall I am very pleased with this device, and would be happy to recommend it.
