It sort of does the job...
on 18 February 2016
Many people have outlined why the product is good. There are some things that make it not so good, however.
The first is that the cutting length is adjusted by twisting a large knob on the device. That's fine as far as it goes, but often I have started cutting my hair at 5mm or 7mm length only to find at the "end" of the cut that the cutting length has shifted to 3mm. I am not pressing particularly hard with it.
The second gripe is that the device uses a non-standard charging plug. If something goes wrong with your charger, an aftermarket charger would be difficult to find. This happened to me with an earlier version of this.
The fact that you can rotate the cutting head is a gimmick. I have cut my own hair with standard trimmers many times before owning this one. I rarely even bother to rotate the cutting head.
I won't say it's a bad product; far from it; but I think I would save some money and go for a cheaper trimmer in the future, which would likely work just as well. (In fact, have had cheaper trimmers in the past and they have worked just as well. This seemed like it would be better, but not really.)
