    Best hair clipper I've owned

    Posted

    I gave it 4 stars because it's not perfect but no doubt I love it. So far the battery life has proven great and lasts much longer than expected. The blade is quiet sharp and cuts my hair easily, even when I let it get longer than usual before a trim. Others have complained about hair clumping in the comb but I haven't experienced anything out of the ordinary compared to trimmers with snap on combs. I can't express how much I love the adjustable comb. It's great to not have to keep swapping out combs to do a fade or keep up with them. The clipper fits great in my hand with the arched neck. What I would like to see are additional combs. It needs a short tined comb to do a better job up close, like the W***, Os***, and An*** trimmers I've owned that used snap on combs. The #0.5, #1, #1.5 combs had tines that were around 0.5cm long which made working up close and around my ears much easier. An adjustable blade would be nice too so you could switch from 0.5mm to a true #0 comb length. I also think it would be great if Norelco made a smaller, detail version on this trimmer with a 1 inch wide cutting blade and scaling the whole thing down to match, although one of their adjustable beard trimmers which I'm eyeing could probably do the job. Other than the comb and making the blade itself adjustable, I can't think of anything I would change.

    I bought this seeing that it was from a reputable brand and it was cordless with a lithium battery. At first I was skeptical because it did not have the weight of my wahl that has survived for 4 years. Anyhow I have now cut my hair four times with this clipper and it cuts sharp every single time! I can always get the cut I need. I charge it full, wait a week and a half and do a clean up on my hair and the battery holds its charge well! Unfortunately the one thing that I love is also the one thing I hate. The third time I cut my hair I noticed in some positions my hand would accidently turn the wheel that dials in the guard length, and so it messed up my hair because some parts were cut uneven because of the slip. Because I notice it is easy to do this now i cut my hair with my hand far away from the dial even though that usually means in some positions I lose my grip on the clipper itself. Doing this I have not had a problem the 4th time cutting my hair but maybe if philips made it less easy to move on accident then it would be a flawless design. Hopefully it lasts in the long run because I really like it. I hate carrying around all these guards when I can just carry around one that is washable!

    Narrow width blade and short life battery

    I purchased this product a year and a half ago and I'm glad I bought the Geek Squad protection for it. The blade guard had one of it's teeth broken off 6 months ago and it still worked, but now the battery doesn't have enough of a charge to trim hair. also the blade width is about 25% narrower than most hair trimmers so it takes longer to complete a haircut.The only thing I really liked about it was not having to switch out guards because the guard size can be adjusted on the trimmer. Oh, and don't forget to double the number on the guard to whatever you used before. For example, most 1/4" guards are a #2 on hair trimmers, but if you put this trimmer on a #2 setting it's closer to 1/8".

    Downgrade vs 3 Years ago

    I bought this model about 3 years ago, that's how long the it lasted. For reference, the one before that lasted about 10 years. When you take off the blade assembly to clean it, it has a plastic eccentric piece to move the blades. This piece broke or at least lost it's fit to the blades after a couple of usages. The old fitting wasn't great and had to be constantly fiddled with, but was at least metal, to last more than a couple of times. It's going back.

    If you cut your hair frequently, this is not it

    I cut my hair twice a month but even at that, it is frustrating to use. I cut my hair with a 0 and my top is about an inch long. A lot of other people who have reviewed this product, complained about the same thing: You have to keep cleaning it after one go and if you're using the adjustable clip, you're going to have to keep going over and over till your arms fall off just to get everything even. Also, the power is not that strong. The positive is that it fades sides really nicely and that it's cordless and cleans easily but if you cut your hair more than twice a month, you should go with something that's more powerful than this one.

    Best Razor in too long

    We unfortunately chose the Pro Wahl first which was always bad (vibrated way too much) and died within 6 months and a complete piece of crap. This was the razor we should have gone with but thought it looked funny. Despite its looks it is incredibly powerful and very sharp (be very careful on those odd spots!). We will never consider another brand again since only Norelco has given us razors that last up to 10 years!

    I was looking to replace my corded Wahl hair clippes and came across the Norelco 7100. I liked the fact that I don't have to change guards and that it cuts very close. The Norelco cuts the hair almost bald just like I like it. You can use it without the guard to get the closest cut. Using it without the guard is perfectly safe. Does not nick or cut. It's very smooth to operate and quite. I would recommend it to everyone.

    After using this fine piece of equipment, I can't believe it was priced so affordably. The design is elegant and natural in the hand. I use it to buzz cut my balding head and it gives me a a tight, super close and even cut every time. Everybody asks me what barber I went to, for real. The battery is amazing and it almost seems like I never have to charge it. The adjustable blade guard does a great even job on my beard. And what a money saver! This is the one to get!

    Best Hair trimmer I ever bought.

    I have been trimming my own hair for a number of years with fair success using different brands. My hairstyle is just an old fashioned crew cut with high cut above the ears. Nothing fancy but it is nice to have the convenience of one tool that does it all with very convenient settings. I am 72 and can't really afford to go to the barber shop regularly, and now I can do a decent job with these clippers and the ease of use is a real bonus.

    Philips Norelco - Hairclipper 7100 - Black/Silver- Is one of the best hair clippers I have ever bought. I normally cut my own hair because of my busy schedule I don't have time to stop by a barber shop. When I first used it my hair must have been a good 4 inches long and I had a full head of hear. Using the TURBO feature it cut down my hair like nothing. After I was done I just ran it under water and it was all clean.

    I am used to the normal hair clippers that are heavy, have to be plugged in, and come with too many pieces. I got this and I was blown away by how light it is. I cut my hair and had to do a double take to make sure it actually cut. It was so smooth! I don't think I have enjoyed cutting my hair so much. s/n probably not the best for thick beards. it probably took me and extra 5 minutes to trim my beard.

    Philips Norelco Hair clipper 7100 is a great product. With smooth curves. the product works perfectly fine as good as it can get. After shaving, no hair is apparent any place that it passes through. Also, the reach well inside the nostril is deep with a clean shave afterwards. It suits different men's need and is easy to use. Essentially, a plug-and-play shaver that delivers best results.

    Love the adjustable guide! My biggest issue with trimmers in the past was that the guide didn't allow you to cut low enough. This trimmer has built in guide that is excellent for low cut hair. The cordless aspect really helps to save time. I can reach every area of my head without the cord restricting my movements. Brought one for my Dad just a few days after my purchase! Highly recommend.

    Good for hair trimming but not cutting

    I bought this item to take advantage of its cordless feature and the Lithium battery. Charged it one time and used it a few and till has charge. When trimming my hair this trimmer struggles sometimes but I still get the job done. I have a professional hair cutter and the issue with the cordless one is really not a big deal.

    Not a bad clipper. Seems to do ok, but I still need to get used to it as I've been using an old style clipper the longest time. The only thing that I'm not thrilled about, is the comb attachment. It has a tendency to clog up with hair and doesn't like to clean itself from it. But, don't let that deter you from buying it. Like all things, takes a little ttime to master it.

    I have been cutting my own hair for more than twenty years and I have to have a cordless. During the winter I let my hair grow a little longer but it gets very thick and this clipper does a great job without bogging down. You do have to hold it more level with your head to get a clean, even cut but just takes a little time to adjust to it. I always love a fast hair cut.

    Does a good not great job at cutting hair. Not really useful for tapers or fades. The description is slightly deceiving about how you adjust for different lengths. There's a dial but that dial doesn't adjust the actual razor. It adjusts the clip on guard which is very bulky and awkward. Other than that, it's actually pretty good for the price.

    Bought this to replace an older clipper of same brand. My older one is rechargeable and water proof. And, it costs 20 dollars less than this one, at Target. The performance is low, you have to turn on the silly turbo mode for acceptable performance. The ONLY neat thing is the adjustable dial, which lets you set the clip height.

    Has one adjustable guard instead of 10 one size guards. Works just as well in getting the length you want except you don't have all the clutter. So if you like having a bunch of plastic stabby clutter, then this isn't the right razor for you. The turbo on it is also fantastic! Has been working well for me for 3 months good as new.

    These are a great set of clippers. Li-ion battery so it should last. My last one was Nickel and only lasted a year. Rotary size adjust is a little difficult to operate. My previous one had a vertical slide instead. Still love it. Even if I have to replace it every year I'm saving money as I'm also cutting my sons hair.
