Philips Series 5000 8 in 1 Waterproof Men's Grooming Kit UK Review
Phillips is a household name brand with a fine reputation for quality. They are very well known for electric razors, not clippers, but they do make a good quality range of units. I would say this Series 9000 is a solid mid range product that's one of their biggest sellers. It can be used for full body grooming.
This clipper is a cordless model that comes as a full kit and is designed for every area of hair on your body. It comes with 7 different attachments that mean you can get to any area easily with a specifically designed tool for everywhere. It can also be used on the cord if the battery is dead
It has 18 length settings ( 3mm - 20mm ) for hair cutting and sports a high speed cutting action that will go through the thickest hair with relative ease. The beard comb will go down as low as 1mm for an even closer cut.
This model also has a very quick charge and it will get you 50 minutes of use from a one hour, super fast charge. It also has a 5 minute quick charge though this will only get you 5 minutes of use.
Philips Series 5000 Hair Clipper Features
- Battery is quick to charge
- Has a 5 minute quick charge feature
- Faster than standard cut speed
- Various accessories for all body grooming
- Self sharpening, finely ground Chromium blades
This clipper has a very good rating of 4.1 out of 5 which is pretty good given that its priced at around £40 and I believe that is extremely reasonable for such a comprehensive kit.
As you know the blades on clippers come in a variety of materials ranging from stainless steel right up to titanium and Japanese steel and this motorised clipper comes with self sharpening Chromium steel blades which require very little or no maintenance.

What Buyers Say About the 8 in 1 Phillips 5000
This is a really big selling clipper as you might expect of a good product at this price. Buyers all agree that this is a quality product and that its really great for all the body trimming and pretty good for hair. We would say that its not an out and out hair clipper so if you are planning to do a lot of hair cutting then you could easily get something better for the money.
Buyers find that this is a really good value and flexible product and the vast majority think its well worth the price tag.
With over 5 out of 10 users rating this clipper 5 out of 5 and less than 1 in 10 users rating it quite low, we know that these are a very good clipper, especially for all over grooming. This is where they are at their best .
Straightaway we found that over three quarters of actual buyers rated this as well above average product.
If we consider all the ratings and reviews, its very easy to see that this is a very good and flexible clipper kit and you should expect that at £40. For me it does everything very well and we see very few complaints.
