BaByliss For Men 7545U Easy Cut Clipper Set
For the last 20 years or so I have used clippers to cut my hair and have had no problems.
I have recently been using this product, and I would say its average at best.
As others have said, you are left with patches that are missed by the trimmer, which is rather annoying. I often end up with an uneven haircut.
For me, having grade 1 and 2, its difficult with this to get the same level of control as I get using clippers, the 'circular' design means that it can be difficult to get a nice straight line.
This device does not hold a charge very well, and as a result means I use it with the cable, which gets in the way, defeating the object of this being 'wireless.'
Its very difficult to clean too!
Having used clippers and this device, I would choose clippers everyday. This is lucky to get three stars from me, it only just gets the third star.
Having thought about it, I would say its disappointing to average.

Just returned it
It just did not do the job. Spent a good while going over my head in all directions and still it left clumps of hair. I am in my 70s so don't have a lot left to cut but it could not even do that. The sissors were of poor quality and 'pulled' when cutting. The one acceptable part of the package was the trimmer, worked really well.
John Lewis were very understanding and gave me a refund. Great service-poor product.

This product is a total shambles! I saw this product on tele and it looked promising, I thought I'd buy this and save a bit of money not going to the barbers and getting a haircut all the time. After giving the product the recommended amount of time for it to charge I used it, it's very time consuming, I'd rather use clippers! The product left patches on my head everywhere I had to go barbers after to save myself the embarrassment however i still have slight patches and I've cut my hair really short. Not only does it take long just to cut hair however because you get left behind with so many patches you constantly have to go over the same place and it still don't cut. Blades are not ever sharp. surely this is the second generation of the easy cut range and they still haven't got it right. I'm left very unhappy and with uneven hair and patches everywhere. Waste of my money!! I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

Hving decided that my hair was thinning too much, I went for the plunge and had it cut short. This cost me £16 at my hairdressers! This clipper set was excellent value, cuts my hair brilliantly and has paid for itself already :-)
Very happy and John Lewis was half the price than Boots so double joy :-D

My husband bought this looking forward to the advertised promise of being easy to cut his own hair, including the back of his head. However, the product did not live up to this claim, but cut his hair incredibly unevenly, leaving tufts and at one point it even cut his head at the back leaving a sore graze. Luckily his old clippers still worked a bit, otherwise he would not have been able to go into work the next day! JL offered fantastic service - with a freepost service and no quibble refund, so that was the only upside to this episode.

Quick and Easy Haircut
This clipper set was a birthday gift, and I found it really easy to use. The design makes it easy to grasp and use because it's easy to hold, and it's quick to use for actually cutting your hair. Doesn't take up a lot of space, and a decent price. I'd recommend it based on my experiences.

It's a snip
A great piece of kit, easy to use and a great price.

This is the most badly designed product I have ever bought. If you like your hair to be a number 1 or 2 this product will not do it. The settings achievable are bald or long with nothing in between. However, the worst feature of this product is that it is impossible to get an even cut with it. It leaves patches no matter how many times you go over it. I gave it 2 tries and both times I had to use another clipper to shave off my hair due to the state it left me in. Don't buy one.
