Summary: the batery is only one hour, and it's not really powerful the epilator hurts the skin, it shouldn't but if your looking for something not too expensive, I think it's not a bad price/quality rate!
Seems like it would have been great if it hadn't broken on the first day

Summary: I purchased this item as a replacement for an older, broken Remington epilator that I really liked. I thought this would be even better, with the cordless option and two speeds. I used it once with no problems. The next time I tried to use it, the battery was almost dead (it had been plugged in and charging all day). When I plugged it in, it would not turn on.
Summary: This is a nice hair removal tool. It hurts less than waxing in my opinion, but I would NOT use it for bikini area or sensitive under arms. For legs it's fantastic. The only problem I had with it is the cheap internal construction. There are several gears (visible when you pop the head off for cleaning) that are made of a brittle plastic. If you (God forbid) jam the spinning epilator head, the plastic teeth on the gears inside will break off.
Works great; less uncomfortable than I had imagined...

Summary: I was getting sick and tired of shaving, so I decided to give this a try. I have to say I am most pleased. I won't lie; there is some stinging, but overall the experience wasn't as uncomfortable as I imagined. I highly recommend doing it after a nice, hot shower. Your hairs will be softer and will come out much easier. I also recommend doing it at night the first few times you do it, so that any redness will be gone by morning.
Did not like this epilator - ended up returning it.

Summary: I have been using a different model epilator for the past 2 years (the Remington 1000), and when it finally broke, bought this one instead, thinking that it was more expensive and had a higher model number, so it must be "better". Wrong! It was slower and did not pull the hairs as well as the Remington 1000. So I returned this one and bought another 1000, and love it! Save some money and buy the 1000 from the start!
Summary: i had an epilady discrette that i used for only about a year before it essentially stopped working. (the cord now has to be held in one precise position for it to run, which is a pain.) while i was generally pleased with how it removed my hair, i didn't like how noisy it was, or how i often had to go over patches repeatedly to get all the hairs. after some comparative shopping, i went out on a limb with the Remington EP-4000 Smooth and Silky Epilator.
