Summary: I have used a Norelco BodyGroomer on my husband for many years and it worked great. The old one wore out and I replaced it with this. I have now used it twice and I really dislike it. The shaver on the other end of the trimmer adds a lot of extra weight that makes it tough to maneuver and its long length make it hard to get into tight areas. In addition, the the added weight causes my hand to cramp, which means I am constantly changing hands during trimming.
Pros: cleans easier than the old model
Cons: too heavy, too long, unbalanced, power switch in bad spot
Summary: This product can be used for trimming hair, with or without the length attachment and to trim hair close with the other end. The shaving end does not shave as close as a blade. The trimmer can be used without the attachment to cut hair close, and if done carefully will not pinch the skin. My only complaint is the charging attachment which has a holder that makes contact with the two metal conductors on the side of the trimmer/shaver.
