Being beardy, but never having used a beard trimmer before (up until now I've just used a hair razor to trim the old facial features) I was interested in giving this bit of kit a try.
Opening the box revealed that this is a well packaged item, without there being an excess of packaging to have to deal with. A good start. The trimmer itself is just the right size to hold and grip and, for it's size, has a good weight and heft to it, always a sign that a good quality motor has been installed, and to be expected from the Remington brand. The cord that comes with it is a decent enough length, although it could have been a bit more generous, and all the detachable parts, including the heads, appear to be well made and sturdy, another good sign pointing to the longevity of this item's usefulness.
Charging or using from the mains was simple enough. I'm not so sure about charging this from a USB socket though. Through a desktop PC wouldn't be a problem, but in that case you might as well use the mains, assuming you're not in a foreign country. I'm certainly not planning on charging this through a laptop though.
Both the trimmer and the micro-setting comb worked extremely well, and I can't fault the result. The shaving head, at least on my face, wasn't quite as good, requiring several goes over the same area to produce a decent result. But the biggest problem lies in the size of the heads, which are too wide to shave or trim in the space between the outer edge of a goatee and the inner strip of hair running under the lip to the point of the chin. Remington could have done with providing a much smaller shaving head, in addition to the other, to allow for that level of precision.
A very good strimmer for the facial topiary, but be aware that you may need to go back afterwards with a wet razor to get to the parts that the beard-trimmer can't reach.
