Have had this trimmer for 3 months and the plastic comb broke. The trimmer is now useless for a beard.
Will not purchse another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lebondocteur Great beard trimmer!
I like to keep my beard of varying lengths and find it hard to find a good adjustable trimmer. I bought this a year or so ago and it has been fantastic! Good sharp blades, lots of settings for length, holds a charge forever (it has never died on me even when on the road for a few weeks and not charging), and is lightweight for travel.
The plastic guard on the top did crack after a year or so of use, but Philips was super helpful online and sent me a courtesy replacement part! Really happy with the product and service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobFJ Comfortable and functional. Easy to use.
At 56, I've just grown my first beard and was having a difficult time getting used to grooming it properly. This unit worked well with simple instructions right out of the box. I had been warned not to get a cordless as they slow down and pull when the battery dies so I really like that this trimmer is designed for use with or without the cord plugged in. I didn't see anything else out there at this price point that looked this good and had the same no nonsense functionality I was looking for.
Very happy with the results of my first attempt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TBone It trims hair...
If you are just looking for a product that will trim your beard, this will probably work for you. If you are looking for any level of detail, you may want to look elsewhere.
With the guard completely removed the clipper doesn't work that well. Trying to draw in a line is useless and I end up having to use my Mach 3 with the detail blade. I had my beard professionally sculpted and the trimmer he used drew the line in nicely and I just had to finish cleaning up with a mach 3, to get it very smooth. This trimmer doesn't do that at all. It just doesn't cut hair shorter than .5 mm or whatever the length is. It only seems to cut when you go against the grain, which makes it impossible to draw.
It does do a good job of simply trimming hair and you can use it while it's plugged in. However I need a trimmer that cuts closer to the skin. I'm probably going to try out the Philips 5000 next, however not sure what I'm going to do with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shipwreck very easy to use, clean and keep charged
A great value for the quality and price line. Easy to clean which is very important. The multiple length settings is a wonderful feature that allows you to easily change cut length at the push of a thumb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doug46 Does the job...
Beard comb works well, ability to use with the charger / adapter and the NiMH battery upgrade is a BIG plus, when trimming with the comb removed it is easy to cut your lip so be careful in that mode, cleaning inside the drive is awkward and the blade assembly is easy to drop and the alignment when reinserting is a balancing act to say the least.....
