Explanation for the mixed reviews!
on 5 April 2014
I am a support worker and use one of these at work, it is owned by a gentlemen whom I help get a shave in the mornings. I tidy his sideburns and other stray hair up with it. He purchased it a couple of years ago and it's a great little gadget that performs well and has lasted well also, and on this basis I purchased one myself. Bad decision! Visually it looks nigh on identical to the older model, but the quality of the components and functionality is atrocious. Firstly the old version has longer and more splayed out cutting teeth, to easily cut through wiry facial hair, where as the one I purchased has very short & tiny, closely packed cutting teeth, meaning it trims only very thin short hairs. Anything thicker and it snags or refuses to cut.
I believe that the positive reviews are for the older/better quality version, and the bad reviews are for the current, poor quality one.
Can't believe such a great product has been changed so much from the original design and manufacture, it is now just cheap crap. I have mine all boxed up ready for return. Do yourself a favour and avoid this product at all cost.
