What customers say about "Key Specs"
Conair GMT8RCS Beard and Mustache Electric Trimmer
  • Blade speed is very good, close trimming works very well.
  • Sharp blades cut properly and overall noise level is ok.
  • Cuts evenly. Blades are not dulling.
  • The blade doesnt cut straight, it pulls a little, and worst of all it irrates my skin.
  • The blades are very gentle and make it hard to nick yourself.
Wahl 9854-600 All in One Men's Grooming Kit
  • The small detailing blade works great for my nose and ears.
  • I haven't used all the clippers and blades yet, but they do feel quite solid.
  • It has sharper blade.
  • It's not water resistant so you can't wash it, only brush it.
  • This thing is not made with staleness steel and got rusted just after the first wash.
  • The attachments can be pretty tricky to put on and take off at first. I sometimes felt as if I could break one at any moment.
  • Unfortunately the blades rust far too easily .

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Conair GMT8RCS Beard and Mustache Electric Trimmer
  • The small unit size lets you handle and maneuver the clipper with ease.
  • This one is just the right size and more than adequately powerful for trimming my beard and mustache.
  • Perfect stainless steel blade size.
  • Light weight.
  • Easy to use ,light weight and cord is long enough.
Wahl 9854-600 All in One Men's Grooming Kit
  • What I like about this trimmer is the compact size.
  • When this arrived and I saw the size (was expecting a full-sized Wahl, this was a little smaller than that) I thought it was going to be a cheaply made, weak rip off. My first impression was way wrong!
  • Good traveling size.
  • It is small and light weight.
  • The main unit is light weight and designed to be very flexible, although it does not feel cheaply made.
  • My only criticism of the shaver is the grip material. Hair sticks to this material like you wouldn't believe!

What customers say about "Features"
Conair GMT8RCS Beard and Mustache Electric Trimmer
  • Good accessory options
  • I was worried that it wouldn't come with enough length accessories, but it has three sizes for shorter facial hair that have worked great.
  • It is pretty precise and very nice quality product now.
  • Precise enough for cleaning up around the edges.
  • There are no accessories provided like a small brush for cleaning, or any lubricant for maintaining the blades.
Wahl 9854-600 All in One Men's Grooming Kit
  • Came with so many pieces and has such a great, ergonomic style and battery life that I rate this a solid 5 from Wahl.
  • Nicely built with plenty of accessories.
  • I love how the accessories just snap on/off quickly.
  • I use the accessories to help get hard to reach places safely, as well as perfect the trimming process.
  • There are too many accessories that don't work or are useless.

What customers say about "Power"
Conair GMT8RCS Beard and Mustache Electric Trimmer
  • This is corded so it works as advertised and power isn't an issue, the problem I have with it is it's not a very close shave.
  • I like this corded trimmer.
  • With a cord this thing seems like it will last forever.
  • No batteries = a lot less headaches! Trims well & very precisely. No more worrying about having a dull shave due to nearly dead batteries.
  • Only weakness is the attached cord which is quite frail and will probably be the first thing to fail.
Wahl 9854-600 All in One Men's Grooming Kit
  • I must say, they have really improved the battery life of these things.
  • The Wahl Lithium Ion shaver is small, and fits even the smallest hand comfortably.
  • Lithium-Ion is the current state of the art for most consumer-level products.
  • This is the most versatile and best cutting set of clippers I have owned. I've always used electric clippers, but this rechargeable set does a better job.
  • It holds a charge for a long time and it trims without missing.
