Right from the beginning I got a professional looking haircut. I keep it in my DOP-KIT while traveling just in case I need a quick trim. Once you use it, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it! It's DEFINITELY a keeper!!!!!

I believe the balder attachment provides as close of a head shave as you can with an electric razor. It definitely gets close, but it seems to leave too many spots uncut on my head. I generally end up cutting myself because I have to keep going over the same spot several times (mainly around my ears and the back of my head). Eventually, I end up just using a disposable razor and shaving cream to hit the spots that the Norelco did not cut.
Prior to this, I was using my Norelco rotary shaver that I also use on my face, and it actually did a comparable job; not as close of a shave, but no blood.
Overall, I think it works well, but it just leaves too many ingrown hairs/missed spots on my head. I will continue to compare it to my rotary shaver for head shaving and decide whether or not I want to keep using it.
The balder attachment is also kind of flimsy. One of the springs on it broke within 2 months. Thankfully Philips has a great warranty and great customer service, so I received a replacement attachment quickly.

This thing works great. I was skeptical and was prepared that I might be throwing my money away on something useless. However, within minutes after receiving it, I was amazed at how well it worked. It's designed well, built well and does what it's supposed to do. The ability to rotate the shave head is impressive. It seriously feels like I shaved my head with a razor.

good shaver but......
the Norelco QC5550 is a nice shaver,it does a very good job of keeping your head bald but the problem is that
after time the cutting foils wear (witch they do with any shaver)
and when you want to replace the cutting foils there are no replacements available.
they need to make sure that parts especially parts that need replacing on a regular basses are available
