I have cut my husband and sons hair for years now and this one is the best one ever! My husband has very thick and coarse hair and everything else I had to start at a few numbers up and work my way down to the number I wanted the length at, which ended up taking forever for one haircut. Now with this razor I can start at the number I want for length and it flies right through so smooth!!! Can not believe how nice and easy it is to use!!!! Will use this one forever!!!! Never buying a different brand again.
I purchased this trimmer (HC-5855), choosing corded vs battery-powered so I wouldn't have to replace batteries or risk it not working when I need it. Little did I know it would stop cutting altogether long before any battery would have worn out.
Just months after purchase, the trimmer started making a terribly loud noise when on. After that, I could tell the trimming capabilities were severely reduced. Eventually it stopped cutting at all. The blade no longer moves when the trimmer is engaged; it simply makes a very loud noise.
Unfortunately, I need a trimmer not an electric noisemaker.
Also, the warranty in the accompanying materials was only 90 days, not "lifetime."
If you are looking for a long-lasting, durable trimmer this is definitely not for you. Don't be fooled by this trimmer's claims.

It's good for shaping but it doesn't cut quite close enough. I also didn't realize that they were so small. If you have a product that cuts hair closer I'd like you to reccomend it to me.

Just to trim the hairline in the back. The clipper did nothing. I don't know If I received a faulty pair or what.

A very compact and efficient product sold at a very reasonable price.

I tried the trimmer for the first time a few days after I received it. It works very well, it's lightweight, and it's very easy to use. This is the first time I've ever used a trimmer myself and I am very pleased with it. It's a very good value for the money and I highly recommend this trimmer.

I shave my husbands head once a week and this electric shaver does not work well. I have to tap out hair clippings after every pass. I should have returned it after the first use. It misses hair no matter how slowly or what angle I hold it. Back to the search for a good product.

Excellent trimmer! My old Remington trimmer finally gave out so I bought this one. It is smaller and lighter, much easier to use than my old one. 2 passes over my head and I'm done.

I bought this during quarantine to cut my husbands hair, all of the parts and guards were in the box. The trimmer is also very easy to use especially for a first timer like me. The trimmer cuts hair nicely and leaves it even and clean. The trimmer is kinda bulky so its hard to hold but once I got use to it, its fine.

Trims my beard very well. Hopefully the have some affordable attachments for beard trimming because as it comes it is more for hair. To be considered a beard trimmer it really needs a smaller detail blade as well.

Works very well. Smooth cutting. They are very quiet which is nice.

They don't cut anything definitely not hair on men's head. Very disappointed
Mark from undisclosed
Great little unit for both hair and beard. Very satisfied.
JP Ezra from California
I purchased these trimmers because my son lent me his pair and they cut like a hot knife through butter. That was surprising as my son has coarse hair and has destroyed many pairs of clippers after a single use. His hair is like copper wire and would just leave the blade dull and useless. He has had his pair for six months or so and they were still cutting like new. I knew as soon as I used his set of these clippers I had to have a pair of my own.

It had been out of stock for some time. I called them and they gave me a day it would be back in stock and it was. I ordered online and it shipped immediately. Got it in 2 days and the unit is great. Feels very good in hand with it's rubber sides. Runs quiet and with all the accessories I am very pleased. Nice product and real fair price.

Decided to do a quarantine haircut, and, not knowing how to do a 'proper cut' (my hair was 3-4" layered, and a mess), I decided to just get rid of it. I ordered this having no idea how to use it, except for watching a few videos. But, it was virtually mistake-proof (as long as you use the right size guard!!), and so easy to use. The guard ensures that you can't make a mistake, so it's pretty worry-free. I may grow my hair back out, but, now that I have this in my bathroom cabinet, who knows.
thomas from Ny ny
So far satisfied. Solid trimmers cut evenly.easy to change lengths
Drumgeezer from Upstate NY
I used it mainly on my beard so far. It trims much more smoothly than the miniature trimmer I had been using (a different brand). Easy to maneuver because it is light weight for a full featured trimmer. Plenty of guides. Wish me luck when I try to cut my hair at home!
Rusty B from New York, NY
Amazing! I've used Wahl and Oster in the past and this is by far the best clippers I've ever owned. I cut my own hair myself. This trimmer easily grips in my hand, keeps cool & quiet, and is lightweight. Head easily removes for cleaning. Sorry I didn't buy these long ago.

To cut hair
NICKOLAS from clovis. CA
its basically a barber trimmer style so far works great
Dusti Zoe from Michigan
Really good quality, much better than Wahl. Even the guides are a tougher plastic. And yes, mine has a #2 included.
Colin from NC 27502
I been using this for about 4 years now and it's great. I trim my beard every morning and cut my hair about every week and it's always done a great job.
Chris from Dallas, TX
#2 guard is missing, and it's the main one I need.
Joe1978 from Washington State
I have used this a couple of times. I purchased this trimmer because it has a power cord, plain and simple. The trimmer does seem to get bogged down sometimes. Hopefully we can see some better or more robust hair trimming products from Remington someday, this trimmer seems to be a basic starter kit, and not anything that will perform strongly for years.

Love it. This trimmer has a powerful motor, no bogging down or pulling hairs like other cheap/standard trimmers I've regretfully used over the years. It cuts hair quietly, smoothly and efficiently. After having had to throw out a lesser quality trimmer after 2 months of light use, the Remington trimmer is a breath of fresh air and is my new go-to trimmer for sure. Totally worth the extra few bucks.

I have used many hair cutting tools over the years this Remington unit is the best unit i have used its quiet and give an amazing cut it out performs Whal hands down i am loving it
