Rated 3 out of 5 by Razz Works great,but
Loved this unit from day one. It works extremely well. But, after having this a couple of years, the attachments are extremely loose fitting. Im on my second set of attachments, and they are loose once again. I dont get it. They dont last very long. Other than that this thing works really good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dan87 Cannot hold a charge
The plastic attachments feel cheap, but it holds up. The issue is that the battery can't hold a charge - I have to use it plugged in and even then 'Turbo' mode can kill it if it hasn't been charging for some time. Disappointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3DeeBee Good Unit
Not a bad tool. I have used a plug in trimmer for 18+ years and wanted to un-tether myself from the wall and shave over the tub (easier clean up!). Main thing to accept is that battery powered trimmers will be weaker than 120V trimmers. That said, this did cut through my beard and stubble really well and did not bog down at all. And I really like the fine adjustment feature so you can dial in the precise length of beard/goatee you are looking for. I am impressed that it is waterproof and therefore MUCH easier to clean. I am however, unsure this could be used while charging. The last thing I want to have happen is that I needthe shaver but must wait for it to recharge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Letdown PRODUCT DID NOT WORK RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX!!!
Bought the trimmer, plugged it in, did not work at all. Went over the PICTURE instructions that were not very helpful. The package was undamaged so QC failed. This was my first Philips purchase with a very disappointing outcome. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Murk Better than my first multi-groom
I gave it only 4 stars because Norelco no longer provides the charging stand/accessory holder and you can't even buy one separately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gsalem3633 Ease of use
I have had quite a few different beard trimmers in the past and received this model 5100 series and it does the best job yet. The ease of use as well as being able to use in the shower. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jibo Great Trimmer for the Price!
I must say I was a little cautious about the value of this purchase. I have owned several similar devices of a different brand (Remington) and was so frustrated when these would not run after the battery died, even with the cord plugin. I'm not sure if this Norelco 5100 will allow one to use it once the battery no longer will hold a charge? However I am more than happy with the way it cuts--the only use I have made of it is the screen and nose/ear trimmer. I absolutely love the screen attachment and how it works to keep the hair skin close around my mustache and sideburns. The shape and the cutting of this shaver is marvelous!
