I bought this for my husband (he's bald). I just wanted him to try something different than the typical razor blades (hopefully we'll save some $ with NOT buying the replacement blades). HE LOVES IT. And I have to admit it's just as smooth as a regular razor. Every bald man needs this product.
I love the size and the no-wire capacities.
Balder is very efficient in my opinion, really close to real blade, although i find it not very precise if one wants to cut a neat mowawk. A bit uneasy to shave around the ears too.
Clipper is okay, has the tendency to shift height while in use i found.
I find it not as efficient as traditional electric hair clipper.
All in all i like this product, nicely tucked in a pouch with mirror and brush.
I had it for less than a month, not sure how it will withstand time yet.
Great product at a great price. Takes a little while to learn but once you get the hang of it, you can only get better. I am extremely picky about my haircuts and this helps me take care of that.
I was pleasantly suprised after the first time I used this trimmer/balder. Upon receiving it I had to charge it for 1 hour before first use which is usually normal with most cordless product's. I really liked the fact it wasn't 24 hr's. instead as I really needed a trim.
I am 80% bald so I will probably never use the main large trimming attachment & seldom use the smaller attachment. A shame because it is a good self leveling type of attachment (large one). I keep the hair I have left either as low as I can get it or shaved. It has excellent power and charges in only an hour for 60 min.'s of use. I think the best part about this trimmer is the balder attachment which is basically an electric razor for your head. It beats having to use my Gillete Pro Fusion Power balde to get to bald, less mess, less time and definitely more convenient plus I'll save on purchasing razor blade's.
My expected arrival date was between 9/26/12 & 10/1/12 when ordering on 9/23/12 I was very suprised to get it in only 2 day's!
The only 2 thing's I don't like about it are the sticker's they put on it that shows you the length settings. They have little tab's on the sticker's that upon first look I was under the impression I was to use them to remove the sticker's. I don't think they will last very long and think the "sticker guides" should have been stamped into the product instead. The next is the flimsy bag I feel it should have been made like more of a rigid type bag to give you better control of the contents while holding and using the contents. They tell you not to drop it in the instructions (mainly to keep from damaging the blades if attached) so I feel the flimsy bag contradicts this point.
Other than this I am really glad I chose this particular product. I have had it less than a month and hope I am not jumping the gun on reviewing it but it does have a 2 year warranty so not to worried.
HINT: Register it online and they give you an extra 6 month's warranty for a total of 2 1/2 year's and a coupon on your next purchase at their website. Also the registartion card you mail in the box offers a $20 off next purchase deal. I mailed it in as well but have not yet received the $20 offer back yet. May get it may not.
Clipper i fantastic and an unbelievable good value. Dual voltage, washable, simple.
Walmart.com was flawless. I could not be more pleased
I like to cut my hair "number one all over," and these clippers let me do that.
Great product.It cuts perfect bald,easy to use.
Overall good quality.
No scratches anymore.
Practically razor level.
Thank you Walmart!
It has every thing you need for a perfect shaving.
I found this product to do everything it claims. When it arrived I didn't even read the directions, I just took it out of the box and started shaving my head. I had been using a regular razor but it was a chore and it didn't shave that well. The Balder really mows the stubble down making my head nice and smooth. One note, the instructions say to cut with the grain pattern. This is fine for the first pass but if you come up in the same place going against the grain it reallys gets the stubble shorter. Glad I found this product on line, I didn't even knew it excisted. It should be advertised more and I'm sure it would be a hit.

This is a quality product in comparison to the Remington Shortcut I have been using.
Philips did an excellent job on this shaver. You can shave your entire head by yourself and not even get one little stratch . Walmart is missing out on In-store sales for not stocking it.
The Balder makes shaving your head and being bald a pleasure. Terrific product, very comfortable to use and the charge on the cordless battery seems to last forever.
"Defective" noticed by end of first use, after talking with norelco willing to give a new one a shot .. But really inexcusable fundamental issuses with trimmed to motor ratio // idiosyncrasies
Blades clog up easily. Have to clean them 2-3 times during each use.
Works great. When done just like using a razor.
Right from the beginning I got a professional looking haircut. I keep it in my DOP-KIT while traveling just in case I need a quick trim. Once you use it, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it! It's DEFINITELY a keeper!!!!!
This thing works great. I was skeptical and was prepared that I might be throwing my money away on something useless. However, within minutes after receiving it, I was amazed at how well it worked. It's designed well, built well and does what it's supposed to do. The ability to rotate the shave head is impressive. It seriously feels like I shaved my head with a razor.
For years, I have tried every device on the market to keep my shaved head looking and feeling great. From triple, and up, blades with mutiple brands of foam and gel, to different electric razors. Then I switched and tried Philips Norelco Headgroom. What a difference. This thing is fantastic. The accesories that come with it are worth the price alone. The way this razor is designed, makes it a breeze to use. I just returned from a trip with a bunch of high school buddies and they couldn't believe what a great little package this thing is. None of them have shaved heads, but they all agreed that it would be well worth it if they ever decide to try.
Thanks so much. You all should be very proud of this prodect. You did a great job, and have a customer for life.
the Norelco QC5550 is a nice shaver,it does a very good job of keeping your head bald but the problem is that
after time the cutting foils wear (witch they do with any shaver)
and when you want to replace the cutting foils there are no replacements available.
they need to make sure that parts especially parts that need replacing on a regular basses are available
