Philips BEARDTRIMMER Series 7000 Vacuum beard trimmer QT4050/32 1mm precision settings Self-sharpening blades 50mins cordless use/8h charge Integrated vacuum system
Great product except for one critical flaw
The trimmer is convenient, since it's cordless, and the battery lasts extremely long. I had a Wahl vacuum trimmer before this, and I was constantly replacing the batteries, so the rechargable nature of this is much appreciated. The vacuum on this trimmer also works much better than that of the Wahl trimmer, leaving much less mess on my counter top. And it's quiter, too.
BUT, I have to agree with EvM13. I have already had the vacuum compartment break on one trimmer, and I fear that the second trimmer is about to suffer the same fate. Why there is such a tiny, weak clip on the vacuum compartment door, I will never understand.

Great concept and ergonomics,ruined due to simple defect
I've got to open with the negative,as there's no way around it -- QT4050/32 is unfortunately a lemon product in the end,ruined because of inadequate clasp mechanism for its hinged vacuum chamber hatch. I have now owned two of these units, and while neither one has been dropped on the floor or against any other hard surface, the vacuum chamber hatch clasp has snapped on each one.This means that the vacuum chamber hatch can and does open whenever gravity dictates,spilling the hair cuttings unto you and your floor,sink,countertop....
As for the positives, this product looks sleek and elegant,feels comfortable due to its contours and exterior finishing,and is featherlight.It boasts a quality performance from its cutting blades and easy to adjust one-guard selection system for fixed length hair-trimming.

It does it's job well.
It does it's job well. I replaced an older unit with Philips' more expensive unit. That one doesn't work well in keeping hair/whiskers uniformly cut to length. This one does.

Good for haircuts for those very thin on top
I use this for both beard and Haircuts. No reason to pay someone to cut only 50% of normal hair every two weeks.

I would pay twice the price if it came to it.
Have used this type of model and will continue to use it and tell those that care about buying one to buy this one.

I would definitely recommend it.
Prior to using this beard trimmer I used a scissor to trim my beard. The beard trimmer gives me a much more uniform look. And it actually takes me less time.
