The shaver is about as good as a electric can be I suppose, I've always preferred a blade if I decided to shave my head so I have a slight bias there. It charges quickly, and retains its charge for much longer than I would've guessed; though if you're caught with no charge you can plug it in and use it directly from the outlet which I was relieved to find out one day. And yes, it can even used to trim up other areas to a near bare level if you use some care and take your time.
A decision I'll never regret. For the first time ever in my life, I've been complimented on my haircuts. Or may I'm just surrounded by really polite people.
It is easier to use than you think. My first selfie took about a couple of hours, a little here, a little there. The most difficult part, as was to be expected, was the neckline behind the ears. But I actually managed to do it with a hand held mirror in one hand, this puppy in the other, with the bathroom mirror behind me, for optimal viewing efficient. And voila! The actual time this really spent time touching/cutting my hair was a small fraction of the time I dealt with planning the angle of attack. A few dry landing run attempts, then I just turned it on and went for a smooth kill.
Paid for itself in just a couple of haircuts. The 2nd time was easier, because my confidence had grown by then. The 3rd time, I ran into a bit of a problem, thanks to my overconfidence from my prior success.
But now I can trim just about any time I feel like extras over my ears. Can even take corrective action a little later when people point out the tuft I have sticking out at the back. Zniffrrrrr. Done!
I feel like I missed my calling in sculpting. Yes, that is how brilliantly easy this is to use.
Make sure to prepare for hair all over the place, though. But you knew that. Or are bald.
Hope this helps
(edit: FYI, I got it during some promotion for $49.95 - so, no, I was not a pricey haircut kind of guy)
The swivel blade helps A LOT! It is so much easier to just turn the blade the way you need it to cut whatever side of your hair. It also comes with several accessories for shaving, hair lengths, combs, precision blades, etc. This was honestly a good deal, especially since its rechargeable and the battery last a very long time. Definitely worth at least trying out. Nowadays I give myself a quick cut & shave before I go out to some functions since the swivel blade is a life saver.
I had a Panasonic electric shaver before this and man did it suck. This thing blows that out of the water.
One reviewed commented that it's easy to miss places on the back of your head. True enough but easily remedied by purchasing an inexpensive hand mirror to check the results. That's always a good idea anyway, right?

I'll start by saying, if you don't wear your hair short, this is not for you. I started off on the longest setting, figuring I'd go back and make it shorter after I got used to it. But the longest setting was just right for how I wear my hair; about a #4 on a barber's clippers.
I had planned on doing as suggested, and do varying lengths to give a professional look. But in the end, I just went over my whole head, even the top, with the longest setting, and it came out perfectly! Very easy, and my hair looks great!
I took off one star because, as others have mentioned, the comb can fairly easily be pushed in to a lower setting. But, if you're forewarned about that, as I was, then it's very easy to avoid that mistake. You don't need much pressure to cut your hair, and knowing in advance not to push too hard allowed me to do my hair perfectly on the very first try.
I'm so glad I took the chance on this. Going to the barber was one of my least favourite things to do; it usually meant a long wait, and inane conversation. Now, not only can I do my own hair at home, this will quickly pay for itself and save money after just a few haircuts! Thus far, I'm very pleased.
Article qui répond parfaitement à mes attentes. Très pratique! Tiens bien en main! Recharge rapide!
Bien plus agréable que mon ancien Remington (à fil).
De plus, les "combs" (peignes), sont flexibles tout en me semblant bien plus solides (grâce à la façon dont ils se fixent à la tondeuse) que les peignes classiques (dont plusieurs se sont cassés dans le cas du Remington). Merci!
Aprés 5 ans d'utilisation regulière et de loyaux services, le petit peigne (comb) a decidé de se briser.... RIP 😔 il va me manquer!!! On finit par s'attacher à ces petites affaires 😊 Surtout lorswu'ils ne s'attachent plus! 😁
Une chance! On peut en trouver un neuf sur Amazon pour un petit 21$... Tout est dinc pour le mieux et je continue à recommande vivement cet article. 👍
