For the past 2 years I've had a beard that is kept dead-short, (ever so slightly longer than stubble).
I'm blond, so I can get away with shaving twice a week, but it got to a point of not bothering to shave, so I bought a Babyliss trimmer to keep the hair short.
The babyliss was fine, I bought it from Amazon and after 18 months it started to give up. Whether that was because I rarely cleaned it or because the blades wore down.
Anyway, I've replaced it with this Philips trimmer. It cost me a couple of rounds in the pub.
I've had it for two weeks. It's a light lump of plastic, to be honest. The tray it comes with is literally the packing tray, which was an instant turn-off.
However, the actual shave has been decent, and as I said, I keep my beard dead short, so it's good to know it doesn't rip my face apart.
I'm only using the adjustable beard trimmer adapter. But it comes with a goatee-beard trimer, nose-hair trimmer, a comb, and a cleaning brush.
I will admit that i used the goatee trimmer by mistake at first (because I didn't read the instructions) but i can't really get my hair any shorter anyway!
Upkeep and cleaning should be simple - you can run the plastic body under the tap and wipe it off. The head can be brushed clean.
The charging time seems ridiculous: 18hrs for 35mins. So if you must use it everyday, get a better trimmer.
For the light-user, like me, it's totally fine.
So, I'd recommend it for those fair-haired types, not you dark hairy mammoths.
