Good, Easy and Simple

I received the HC5090 Clipper free from Braun for a review. The product's arrived allot quicker then expected. The packaging was well put together and easy to open, as it should be. The packaging involves Braun Hair Clipper, Beard trimming attachment, Long hair trimming attachment, AC charger, Charging base station, Blade lubricating oil, and a Small brush. The battier life is really good and the trimming attachments are ok but could be better with an upgrade. The height adjustment is a brilliant feature, with the push tab slider mechanism to adjust the height, and it won't budge as long as you keep your thumb off the button. The cut was very clean, found that out after i used it on my beard and also for shape up. The only big complain i have would be that the clipper can be hard to clean with hair getting inside the device. overall it was a good product, with great packaging, and very simple and easy to use. If you need something to got the job done and don't mind the extra cleaning then this is the Clipper for you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Almost perfect...

PROS: First off, the product is great. Slick design, easy to use, simple charging options with a nice sleek charging base that barely takes up any room. The clipper itself is very lightweight and easy to hold and control. The blades are indeed sharp, just as advertised on the box. The machine also works while it is plugged into the wire, which is a plus, especially if you're in a hurry and forgot to charge it. Major pro: battery comes fully charged and ready to use.CONS: Hair gets caught under the blade. When you open it up to clean, you'll find a large majority of hair in the blade pocket. The blade cap is also easily opened (could be good or bad, your preference). My main disappointment came from the battery. Although better than most clippers I have tried, this one says that it lasts for 50 minutes of non-stop usage...false. The battery weakened after 20 minutes of use and starting blinking red. 30 minutes into using it, it died completely. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Close cuts

I absolutely love the Braun HC5090 clippers. I was already in the market to buy a new better pair of clippers than what i already had, i wanted a closer cut when i shave my head. The Braun clippers did just that, they cut really close to the scalp without scratches and cuts. I love it, thank you Braun for letting me try this product for free.

Braun hairclipper HC5090

Easily one of the best clippers out there and the price is amazing. Easy to clean and cuts perfect and precise. I have had numerous clippers from competitive brands but these wireless, rechargeable hair clippers are a must for any man that desires a well kept head and/or beard.

Good Cordless Hair Trimmer

For years I have been using an electric hair trimmer to shave my chest hair, armpits, and the small of my back. My old trimmer was corded, heavy, and made your hand shake while using it. This was not the case with the Braun Hair Clipper HC5090. The Braun Hair Clipper HC5090 is a lightweight, cordless hair trimmer. When I was using it it glided smoothly against my skin and did not get "caught" like my old trimmer tended to do sometimes. This caused a quicker shave and one with fewer irritations of my skin. Two negatives about the product though. First, the lowest setting with the guard is 3mm. My prior trimmer allowed for a closer shave. 3mm is still very close, but I would like to be able to get a closer shave without having to take the guard off. The other negative is that the bag is small, flimsy, and looks cheap. The bag is basically a thin plastic and really is not big enough to put everything in it (I have everything shoved in there and it doesn't really fit). All and all, the the Braun Hair Clipper HC5090 is a nice trimmer and I would recommend it to others. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun hairclipper

The Braun company made me a believer in their products after receiving this hairclipper. I have owned several clipper's in the past and never as useful and well thought out as this one! First off the smart trimming attachments are awesome, 2 that's it just 2 of them they easily slide to adjust height. My previous clippers have 12 attachments and are a pain. The plugin / charger is also a great idea! It can be cordless or use the cord. Way nice hairclipper I was super impressed with the functionality and look of the Braun hc5090 HairClipper! I did recive this free from Braun. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great product, love it.

Love this set of clippers, the adjustability of the guards is really nice. Used it last night on my beard and it worked really Nicely. The 10 minute charger for the battery work pretty well too. I killed it intentionally to test it out and it was ready to use and charged in less then 10 minutes. Was a very easy clean too! Just rinsed and let it dry on a towel. I usually don't like the way the cordless ones work and only buy, corded units but, so far this one is working really well. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a trimmer or hair clippers.

Easy as it gets!

I think these clipped are great! If you don't like keeping up with different sizes of guards, thenjoy these are the clippers for you. Great quality and extra precise. I used these to trim my beard and it did not dissapoint. Totally worth the purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Simple, easy and gets the job done without the hassle...

I received the HC5090 free from Braun in exchange for an honest review. Having 3 males in the house, a decent hair clipper is almost a requirement or you'll be spending a lot of money at the barber shop. The timing of this product's arrival was great as my two boys and I were sorely in need of a trim. The unit comes with a convenient charging stand so it stores upright as not to take up too much room in the corner of the bathroom sink area. Included are two comb attachments (3-24mm and 14-35mm), a cleaning brush, oil bottle and a travel bag. Right off the bat I liked the idea of having to work with just two adjustable comb attachments instead of fumbling through a big box of ten like I had using an old product made by a different company. The combs hold secure with their memory SafetyLock system. It remembers the last length setting used and there's no risk of the accidental pop-off leaving you with the infamous bald patch.My youngest wears his hair short. I started with the longer comb till I had an idea of how the length system worked. The HC5090 worked just as it's supposed to. After a few passes, the hair was trimmed down to the length we wanted. The unit did struggle a bit more with my older son as he has some very thick hair. I found that a slower hand remedied this but the extra work did cut into the advertised charge holding time of 50 minutes. I found actual working time was closer to the rage of 35-40 minutes which is still not bad considering what I put it through. As far as my own usage, the HC5090 was fast and easy. No need for switching back and forth between my old size 4, 6, 8 and sideburn combs. This unit did it all with just a slide of my thumb.I think the best feature of all about this product is it's ability to get razor close. The areas such as the front hairline, sideburns and especially along the back of the neck were so easy to manage because the HC5090 cuts extremely close and accurate without the combs. There are no renegade hairs hanging in the back, no peach fuzz on the neck and the front of my boy's haircut was so straight that it looks like I did it with a ruler.Overall, this is a solid unit. I'd recommend the Braun HC5090 to anyone who cuts their own hair, has kids or is simply looking to save a little money by cutting out the trip to the barber. You can do it all yourself with this clipper and it works great. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Pretty good overall

When using this hair trimmer I noticed the sharpness of the blades right away. It glide through your hair like no other trimmer I've used. I received the product free from Braun, the manufacturer of the product. I had showed my mom(a cosmetologist) as she works in great clips. She had said Braun is a very good company to get hair products from. I would for sure buy any Braun product in the future and tell me friends and people about how great their products are.
