Rated 1 out of 5 by TJ5573 Poor quality comb
As with all the other reviewers, I cannot fault the clippers. The comb (1-3mm) however is poorly designed. The first one I owned had to be replaced when the adjustment tape snapped. The replacement guard I had to buy has now also broken. This time one of the spring retention clips has snapped rendering the comb, and clippers, useless. Very disappointing.

The tape that connects the comb height adjustment mechanism snapped after a short use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by brusch the clipper combs are too flimsy
after using these clippers around 10 times, both of the combs have broken. this smaller precision one is designed to be adjustable over very small increments, but the mechanism that is supposed to keep it fixed at the chosen length is too flimsy. now it does not stay fixed when you apply a bit of pressure (which one inevitably does when using it) so there is a risk that the hair length will be uneven.
the other, larger comb has a separate problem - it has plastic bits that are again very flimsy and if you drop the comb once, the chances are that one of them will break off. once that has happened, it again becomes very hard to cut the hair an even length

Poor quality comb. First broke within months, the second one also broke a few months later. Phillips products are not what they used to be. Will be moving elsewhere for future needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sloth78 Cuts really well, attachments have broken
The clippers worked well for the first ten or fifteen cuts, but now the piece of plastic that secures the comb has broken so I can't fix the comb to the clippers!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Matsui132 Excellent clippers let down by poor quality attachments
I have been using clippers twice a week for many years now and have found this model very easy to use and it holds very good charge. As others have already mentioned the quality of the clipper attachment does not mirror the build quality of the clipper. My attachment 1-3mm broke from the clips that hold the attachment to the clipper. This caused a gap that gave me a haircut with a bald patch ( not very amusing ) a little more research is required into the quality of the attachments to make an overall excellent product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Leejoe Poor Quality Clipper Attachments
Interesting to read that like all other customers of this particular product, I myself have experienced the same problem. Both the 3-15 and 18-30mm attachments have snapped and as I was half way through a cut I had no other option other than to try and fix the broken attachment with superglue, I have always used Phillips as they have always been quality products however, I am extremely let down by the poor quality of this product, I do hope Philips can resolve this issue for me in a timely manner.
