Summary: Pros Holds charge for a long time Can use it while its plugged in Decent vacuum but doesn't get everything Easy adjustment of trim length Cons Doesn't work well for hair that lays flat on the face, like the hairs on cheeks and neck Can't trim the moustache well with the guard on Can't rinse the head...
Summary: Bought this beard trimmer as it had a good write up. After about a couple of months use the adjuster broke through no fault of my own. I used a piece of blue tack to stop it moving which has done the trick. Other than that, I have no problems with the unit.
Summary: The three stars are for the vacuum feature that works pretty decent and collects enough things, not everything though! As a trimmer it didn't do its job. I had better trimmers bought in lower price
Summary: This product is adequate but due to design does not trim moustache very well. Whilst most cut bristles fall into the container some miss and go into sink. Although not critical there is no power lead connection to a shaver plug, just one to the mains.
Philips QT4050 Turbovac Rechargeable Vacuum Beard Trimmer Plus With Contour Following Comb

Summary: Third one I've had, bought for the vacuum facility more than anything else - that's the USP. Each model is both cheaper, smaller and lighter, which you'd think would be a plus, but actually the impression of quality is diminished (although it's marginal and one appreciates that freight cost savings...
Summary: I own about 6 different beard / stubble trimmers, however I never really go past long stubble (1-2 weeks). The reason I don't trim more often is simply because the hairs get everywhere and it's a paint to clear up, so since this was on offer I purchased it.
Summary: My only complaint is the length control. I personally found that the thing trims a few millimetres longer than you want. However, this is a good product, moves nicely over the face, doesn't tug, and fits nicely in the hand.
Summary: I like a very short stubble, which my old Remington PG-410 did perfectly, however with or without the comb this has difficulty doing the same. When using without the comb, the vacuum tube gets in the way.
Summary: An ok trimmer which does its job reasonably well. Bought as a replacement for an old Remington; which had the bad habit of spraying hair all over my bathroom. This performs significantly better from that point of view. I was afraid the vacuum system would be a gimmick, and to a large extent it is.
