Rated 2 out of 5 by Banditgolfer Good if you don't want smooth
I'm a bit disappointed with this product.
1. The clip on trimmers are completely useless. My clippers and beard trimmer does a far better job for trimming down. I tried for 10 minutes for any hair to be removed. Absolutely nothing come off on fairly long hair even with the shortest. I won't use them again. First pass with my other clippers or the beard trimmer gave me the results I wanted in a couple of minutes.
I then proceeded to use this without the clip on guides on my back on shortish hair that had not been trimmed. This gave mixed results but it depends on what finish you expect. If you expect smooth you will be terribly disappointed. I tried for ages to try and get a smooth finish on a patch of hair I had selected that was accessible. I tried another with the same results. Short trimmed hair but not smooth.
If you want to just trim the hair down very short it's excellent but I can't see anyone getting smooth with it.
The back reach attachment is a marvel. I trimmed my back quite easily without any assistance. This should be provided with the series 7000 one as well. If it had come with the series 7000 I would have got that.
So in short. The guides are useless. It won't give smooth results but it does excel at self trimming and getting hair very short quickly and easily.

I highly recommend this shaver as it does what it should fantastically well. And the foil stays in unlike an earlier version of this shaver I have used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yorkielad good quality product
having had a philips bodygroom before i was looking for an updated one i had been using a mangroom much cheaper but not as good. this is a good groomer but i have only used it with an attachment on the blades and even using the no 1 clip you have to be a bit careful around the groin area and dont think i would like to risk using without the clip on the 'delicate/sensitive' areas like groin as i get the impression it might cause some 'razer burn' but otherwise im happy with it and think the philips is the best of the limited bunch of mangroomers on the uk market

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tazzdev Best trimmer I've ever used for my back
The simple inclusion of a long handle makes this a great trimmer for your back, all you need is a mirror.
The detachable combs don't seem to work very well but with a little practice the clipper & foil head gives good results. It didn't scratch or hurt (at least compared to a normal hair trimmer.... ouch!) and was quicker than waxing, after the initial 'deforestation', ..... and with less pain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Baboon Good little trimmer
I have had this for a good 6 month and has saved me a fortune in waxing my back.
i would say the razor could be a bit better though as if you have thick longish hair it takes ages to get it down to smooth skin i suppose if i did it weekly it would be better!
Also it can be quiet uncomfortable whilst doing the back as the trimmer blade(the sticky out bits on the edge) scratches my back as you go back n forth and can leave red marks!
Having said all that, its far less painful than a waxing!
The handle is brilliant btw!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Refund Worst product ever
When I bout this product a week ago I didn't open it I thought that will buy a better one but then the staff in boots told be this one is better.
Therefore, yesterday I opened and used it
IT WAS TERRIBLE .......... REALLY
The shaving head feel
Doesn't remove hair easily
HURTS a lot
I then used my old shaver because my leg and some parts of my body had a lot of hair in places and in other it didn't have
I want my money back this is unexceptable

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Good body shaver, let down by attachments though
I agree with previous comments, the trim attachments are'nt very effective. The main shaver is very good though.
