2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre... Much Better Alternatives Out There, 25 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Philips Series 3000 11-In-1 Mens Grooming Kit QG3352/23, Beard Trimmer Hair Clippers, Moustache, Stubble, Detail Shaving, Nose Hair and Eyebrow Trimmers (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These trimming kits are becoming a dime a dozen lately and while this Phillips one does the job, there is nothing about it that distinguishes it from any of a million others that are out there.

First thing I will point out is that in the product description it makes mention of a 'storage box'. Don't be fooled though because this storage box is in fact just the rubbish plastic case that it is stored in inside the actual cardboard box and I can't see anyone ever wanting to use that as it's just plain ugly, cheap and takes up a lot of room. It does also come with a drawstring pouch which is much better for storage.

The other big drawback for me is that although it is meant to be a precision trimming kit, the smallest actual shaving attachment for it is almost an inch in width so anyone after well defined goatees or sideburns will be out of luck unless they have the steady hands of a surgeon.

Apart from that it's a so-so trimmer with reasonable charge, shaves as close as can be expected, leaves a terrible rash if you use the foil attachment and seems quite sturdy and well made. In all honest though i'd recommend the Remington PG6050 which is also available on here for almost the same price and has the advantage of coming with a much smaller detail attachment and a much better looking display unit!
