Good and reliable, short of accessories
on 17 October 2013
Remington is pretty much my top choice for this kind of product and I've been using their hair clippers for over a decade now. This one is a replacement for my old ceramic blade no-need-to-oil clippers, but the do worn off over time. It has a smooth action and does the job just as well as the old one, so no problems there.
On the minus side, it comes with just two adjustable combs instead of half a dozen or so individual combs as on the older models. I can see how this can save money on the production line, but since I crop my hair really short, I'm having an issue not having the possibility to chose the length between '0' and '3'. It's pretty much all or nothing. There is an extra comb for 'stubble' setting that provides a bit more flexibility, but old models with fixed combs were, and still are, much more suitable for those who keep their hair really short. Also, in terms of accessories, there are none. Not even a traveling bag.
