Reading the online reviews I can confirm that most consumers are happy with their purchase of the HC5450/83. It is a simple clipper, reliable, sturdy and also priced quite competitively.

The price that you need to pay for the Philips HC5450/83 is £30. The suggested retail price from Philips is £55 which is way too much for many. At eBay and Amazon you can easily find clippers from the 5000 series for under £30. I think it is well worth paying up to £35 but not more.

Similar hair clippers and trimmers I can recommend (including some alternatives of the Philips HC5450/83):

  2. Rowenta TN1600 hair clipper
