looks good but poorly designed
The trimmer itself is fine but the stand is very light and the action of putting the trimmer in or out often dislodges the other parts of the kit.
The trimmer height adjuster slides on to the trimmer and is pushed up or down to the required nuber. Unfortunately, in use, this can actually be moved by the user to the wrong setting.
The cutting action is a bit hit or miss and is poor on shortish hair.

This is a great product for keeping a clean cut look for hair and face. It's easily charged and the storage stand is excellent for keeping all the attachments in the same place. The guards are all easily adjustable for varying trimming length and the additional heads also come in handy. The fact that it can be used wet is also a great feature.
As with all trimmers keeping them clean is important to performance and this doesn't disappoint. All the heads are easily cleaned and can be taken apart for more thorough cleaning.
All in all this is an affordable, reliable and high performance trimmer that's just as good for use in the home as well as for when you're on the move.

This product does exactly what it says on the box
This is a great little kit from Phillips, it has a well built quality about it and once charged lasts for about 6 hours without the need for recharging. The attachments are easy to change and all work well, especially good are that the trimmer attachment has an adjustable setting with the different grade numbers clearly printed on the back. The only two drawbacks are that there is no carry case available as the stand is a little bulky however it fits easily enough in most washbags and it would be good if there was the option of battery power as well although the charge will last for the duration of most trips away.

Excellent trimmer but cutter guides fragile.
Excellent light-weight trimmer that works well, but the cutter guides should have been constructed from a more flexible material. The guides snap off easily and a replacement guide is half the price of a new trimmer. The beard length switch is easily moved to the wrong position during cutting and does need to be checked frequently. Perhaps these two items could be addressed in future models.
