Summary: Bought this shaver about 2 weeks ago. Its a bit bulky to handle. But having said that, I am used to a smaller shaver. I love the vacuum part of this shaver. I don't get that "hair itch" as I used to get. Charges quickly and does a good job. Trimming your mustache takes a bit of practice, as the clipper is wider than I'm used to; but does a good job of clipping. It clips exactly where you put it; which now I'm letting my mustache grow back out. LOL Over all I like it.
Summary: This is my third Norelco Turbo Vacuum Trimmer. The older models had sideburn trimmer blades that were great for trimming eyebrows, mustaches and edges of beard. The new product does not have that and feels much lighter and more cheaply made. This product is not worth the money I paid for it and I should have just bought the plug-in model for about half the price. I will not buy a fourth Norelco Turbo Vacuum Trimmer.
Summary: This will be my third purchase of what was once called the Norelco "maverick." I have worn a beard since I was 15. This groomer does it all and lasts a long time. Great value. Just bought one for my scruffy college student son for Christmas. He looks so nice today !
Summary: I was surprised at how small the overall size of the unit is. I hope these comments are constructively taken. My previous model had more turbo power. I was dissappointed with the overall power of this item. The design in the vacuum head design is much better then my previous model that had a moving item subject to breakage. The door to the hair storage area is pretty light, it should be more then two hinges; it should be made of heavyer plastic.
Summary: I absolutely love this product. I am in the military and actually use mine to cut and trim the hair on my head. It works like a charm and keeps me within regulations at all times. I take it everywhere….
Summary: The last time I wore a beard, about 30 years ago - these trimmers were not on the market. I used a comb and a pair of scissors. This trimmer changes everything ! When I first tried this trimmer, I was skeptical because of the negative reviews I read. Some reviewers have said the comb on this trimmer is sharp and will stab you - that did not happen.
Summary: This is a huge step up from my last beard trimmer. The difference in quality is evident with the adjustable trimming length. It's a little confusing the first time trimming and selecting a length as I never actually thought about how long the beard left behind actually was. I usually just thought in a whole number system. It's an easy switch to make after the first experimental shave. The turbo function is a nice addition and the vacuum as well.
Summary: This is the third one of these I have owned over the years. I have a very thick beard and use this at least 2-3 times a week. Even with this hard use, each one lasted over 2 years and stayed sharp. Vaccuum doesn't catch all the clippings but most and saves a major mess. These Norelco trimmers are the best I have found.
