Summary: I bought this for my son and he initially liked it, but the plastic attachment broke within the first few months and Panasonic replaced it. It broke again, this time outside of the warranty, and Panasonic refused to replace it. The unit is now useless. I would strongly recommend against purchasing it.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor quality, defective design
Summary: The hair/beard lenght adjuster is made of cheap plastic. The adjuster broken even after a few careful uses. Glued it together then it broke at the other place rendering it unrepairable. Don't bother to buy the replacement as it would be the same issue due to the material used and flaw design. What a pity for such a good product is ruined by using cheap material. Definitely NOT recommend !
Pros: Easy to use, Convenient, it is no longer inexpensive with broken adjuster
Cons: Expensive, Did not meet expectations, Poor quality, it becomes very expensive with broken adjuster !
Summary: I have to agree with all the others who said that the plastc quard is cheap and easily breaks. Since there are so many complaints about the same thing, you would think that a reputable company like Panasonic would address the issue and produce a better quality guard. With today's technology and incredible alloys, how difficult would it be to make a guard that doesn'tbreak?
Summary: Exactly what I was looking for. It can cut your hair at different lengths and can handle the details. Best of all it is water proof so it's easy to clean. A total guy gadget! Does the jobs and its low maintenance. Even came already charged.
Summary: Like many other reviewers of this product, I had the trimmer guard break after just several uses. Then, like many other reviewers, I tried to glue it together, and it broke again. Then I called Panasonic Parts Dept and paid for 3 more guards, and even with the utmost care and recommended process for removing and re-attaching the guard, ended up breaking all 3 of them. A nice product with a ridiculously cheap and worthless attachment that renders the product unusuable.
Summary: The next best thing to a professional instrument and good for the price. We'll see how long it stands up. So far I'm very pleased with this product and delivery was much faster than anticipated.
