Philips? Didn't they used to make good stuff?,
This review is from: Philips QG3332/23 Series 3000 4-in-1 Waterproof Mens Grooming Kit (Beard/Stubble Trimmer/Hair Clipper) (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Philips OH3332 is one of two trimmers I ordered to keep my Mohawk haircut and beard trimmed up when I'm away occasionally.
I ordered it along with another Philips model (The QT 4015) from a recent Vine promotion.
A serious pair of mistakes on my part.
The QT4015 is OK but this thing (the OG3332) is pretty rubbish.
First off the balance is awful as personally speaking I don't like all the weight at the cutting head end.
It has a very poor quality look and feel about it but at least the on/off switch doesn't need the muscles of Charles Atlas to operate it (unlike the QT4015).
The adjustable trimmer attachments slip into a groove on the back and are moved by sliding them up and down. Once adjusted the guide seems to lock in place fairly securely but, as with the other model I got, I don't think it would take anything more than a minor hit or drop to break it.
It comes with two different trimmer guides and an instrument of torture called a nasal hair trimmer.
It is a rechargeable unit but take heed of the instructions as it says this trimmer is not to be used while attached to the charger. This seems odd as it is permissible on the QT4015.
Oh and don't be taken in by the apparent provision of a good stand for the trimmer and it's accessories. All it is is the grey plastic box insert the things supplied in and which would, to my mind, last a whole two weeks of regular use.
Unfortunately, being an old soul and ex-domestic electrical retail trade, I remember when Philips products were cream of the crop. Nowadays the cream seems to have curdled somewhat.
It cuts hair and that's what it's meant to do although I wouldn't want to try any major styling with the thing.
In hindsight I suppose you get what you pay for and at around £20 you get exactly what you pay for - nothing to write home about.
