I bought this by chance for movember...never looked back
I've had this beard trimmer for a couple of years now and it's an indispensable piece of kit for the discerning gent.
The trimmer is very solid and feels weighty but not overly much in your hand.
Adjustment is very simple. Nothing to really go wrong and no pointless "touch" electronic gimmicks like my old trimmer from another competitor brand.
The battery lasts ages. Really ages. I charge this trimmer and I think it gets plugged in again after a couple of months. Unless you shave daily, you will have at least 6-8 weeks worth of charge.
It's quiet which is nice in the morning. It means I can continue listening to my radio without a buzzing in the background.
And this trimmer isn't just for beards. This trimmer can be used anywhere and everywhere all over your body for the ultimate trim.
Cleaning is incredibly easy. Since the unit is waterproof, you just rinse it under the tap. Any stubborn hairs under the blades are easily removed with an old toothbrush and the trimmer can then be left to drip-dry.
The only downside to this trimmer is the flimsiness of the guard. I fear one day it may break and it does flex when you apply too much pressure.

Hard to use
In 2-3 first lengths that are commonly used, even though following the product support for an even trim, the blades inevitably get in touch with the skin causing a uneven cut/trim because you are forced to move with face contours and it is difficult to keep it properly in the right position.

Replacing an old friend
After I would guess, at least 30 years, I replaced my beard trimmer, model HP 2505/A, with the this model. It appears to be OK, doesn't seem as powerful as my original, but does the job. The original was only replaced due to the trimmer guide breaking, which after its length of service, has certainly trimmed some beard.
I looked into the market, and decided upon a Phillips, for both price and loyalty reasons. Will it last as long as my original, that will be something. The original was American made, now of course they are Chinese.

Excellent quality trimmer.
This trimmer is a very capable and well made product.
It cuts with ease and is very comfortable to use and has some very useful features like the zoom wheel and the flip top cutting head.
I highly recommend this product!
