Possibly the worst trimmer i ever bought,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BaByliss 7235U 10-in-1 Grooming System for Men (Personal Care)
I bought this primarily as a beard trimmer to replace an old Remington trimmer that is wearing out. The performance on my old trimmer even in it's "old age" is far superior to this BaByliss unit. Firstly the BaByliss does not look the same as the picture - the photo was obviously taken with lots of flash to make the main unit and a couple of the attachments look like they are chrome finish - its all actually made of naff looking grey plastic. In use the trimmer heads on their own cut very close with much discomfort but the main problem is the poor quality attachments which basically render the product useless. The foil shaver did nothing on short stubble, the ear/nose trimmer made a noise but that was all. The clip on attachments for the trimmer heads do not fit well at all and actually prevented the blades from cutting. The "alleged" precision attachments are the worst, on the shortest setting BaByliss claim it cuts hair to a 3mm length, in use it cut nothing off hair that was approx 1cm long. I had some minor success with the jaw blending attachments but even these didn't cut as close as stated in the manual - the 3mm attachment cut to about 6mm. All in all a bad experience with this product and as the title says possibly the worst trimmer i ever bought and has put me off the brand for good, which is ironic really as the best trimmer i ever owned was also made by BaByliss.

I totally agree, absoluted rubbish, wouldn't trim a grizzly bear. I had a well past it's date remington and it wipes the floor with it!
I might give this to my 14yr old nephew who got his 1st hair on his chin 2 weeks ago.
