Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Fundamental design error renders it useless

 

Very nice in the hand, can feel it's power and eagerness to to a fantastic job but I'm amazed at how rubbish the design of the comb attatchment arms is. They are so fragile, if pressed gently unintentionally in the wrong place they wil snap. Come on...

Excellent Variable Cutter But Hard To Use Without Assistance

 

In my opinion, this is the best variable length cutter that Philips have ever produced but because it does not have a swivel head, it is very hard to use on one's own and requires some considerable hand and arm contortion to obtain an even cut.

excellent variable length cutter.

The guides are far too big and this makes it very difficult to get in close and very awkward to get an even cut as the action pint of the guides is miles away from the blades

Great as a beard trimmer.

 

Bought this to use as a beard trimmer due to it giving options of a longer cut than beard trimmers offer, allowing me to keep my longer beard trimmed and tidy. With its massive cutting range can quickly adjust to trim different areas as required. It...
