Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve10 Stylish trimmer
Easy to use with 4 interchangeable heads. Charges quickly and cordless use increases flexibility. Case keeps everything in one place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ash1747 Could it have been better? Yes.
Looks sharp, time will tell how the battery holds on to the charging in the years to come, but a 5 year warranty is simply Great with a lot of peace of mind, so well done Phillips!
Ease of use
The last one I had was a Phillips QC5339 which died after a few years so bought this one. The first thing I notice is that 41 mm comb is missing hence the maximum length is only 23mm. Is this a step backwards or forward and something which wasn't much difficult to do anyways and would have definitely given more flexibility and a better customer experience?
The rotary anti slip lock in length mechanism certainly is a welcomed improvement in product design.
Personally I prefer the soft travel case packaging which used to come with the older models more than the new moulded plastic packaging which came with this.
Over all rating
I have a Phillips TV, Home Cinema, Iron, Vacuum Cleaner so a big fan of the brand's quality and customer service for the last many years but this product definitely could have been much better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by captainNick No good for beard
The beard trimmers are at set lengths 1.5,3 & 5mm and the attachments are far to chunky to cut hair under nose or evenly around chin etc. DO NOT use the adjustable attachment as it cuts at all different lengths on one setting - taking straight back for a refund and buy something decent !

Rated 5 out of 5 by John50 Excellent Purchase
This item is well balanced and powerful enough to cut through my hair with ease. My hair is quite coarse but it didn't sound laboured at any point. excellent product Glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Antslater Great Product, easy to use
Having always shaved my own head and nephews I've never wanted a cheap hair clippers that pulls. This is the best one to date. I only had to charge for 45 mins and I was able to cut mine and nephews hair with no problem. No pulling, not loud or clunky.
The only negative thing and it's not concerning the hair clippers is the travel container. Everything is nice and shiny including the case, yet the clippers and accessories sit in a brown cardboard holder which spoils the look of it. I have given it 5 stars for performance etc it's just my personal taste. However would not stop me from recommending it to others and gives me faith in Philips in the male grooming department

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigLeggie47 I'm delighted with the flexibility of this product
I required a hair trimmer to deal with three different hair issues: grooming my receding hair to keep it neat but not too short; trimming my short beard and moustache and controlling coarse chest hair.
This product achieves all of these requirements with its choice of guards and the fine tuning control.
The battery life is more than expected and the turbo button makes moustache trimming simple and clean.
I would recommend this model without hesitation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by edward64 Efficient product but box needs some refining
The unit works well however I find the plastic box it is stored in does not easily hold all the separate heads and charging cable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rob444 I'm totally at a loss to know why Phillips thinks this is acceptable.
I've cut my own hair for decades. I've used clippers which are simple and trustworthy. This product is bewilderingly badly designed.
I have medium thickness hair, and plenty of it for my age. I purchased a 5450 because of the name, the claims on the box and specifically the words, HAIR CLIPPER.
Holding hair up between my fingers often found the cutters just pushing the hair sideways. Suddenly, it would cut - often to my detriment.
As another post, the head FILLS with hair and is bizarrely difficult to extract from the mechanisms. I hasten to add, I work with fine mechanical items routinely.
It's going back and I'll buy one with a full sized head and simple design.
