Philips QT4050 Turbovac Rechargeable Vacuum Beard Trimmer Plus With Contour Following Comb,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips QT4050 Turbovac Rechargeable Vacuum Beard Trimmer Plus With Contour Following Comb (Personal Care)Third one I've had, bought for the vacuum facility more than anything else - that's the USP. Each model is both cheaper, smaller and lighter, which you'd think would be a plus, but actually the impression of quality is diminished (although it's marginal and one appreciates that freight cost savings are achieved). The reason this doesn't get a higher score however is the 'contour-following comb' which as a feature fails on two counts: 1) a contour-follower is not required (that's what a wrist is for); 2) the comb is coarse, clumsy and gets in the way. What I personally need (and I'm sure I'm not alone) is a finer comb, which picks up the hairs lying flatter than others to give an even trim, and which enables one to get immediately below the nose. A feature to trim the bottom of the moustache could be a bonus, which I think might be achieved with a finer tooth arrangement on the actual cutter. As it is I have to keep both scissors and a razor for these jobs, thus negating the whole smaller/lighter issue. 6/10 - probably the best on the market still, but could do much better.
