  • It is easy to use and the blades cut easily without being too sharp for comfort.
  • Ultimate precision with lifetime lasting sharp blades.
  • As for the quality of the shaves, they were very smooth and I never felt the hairs being pulled and I did not experience any skin irritation.

What customers say about "Features"
Braun MGK3020 Men's Beard Trimmer for Hair / Head Trimming
  • This product only lasted 2 months. It's no longer accepting a charge and the motor has gradually gotten slower I started using it.
  • Worked for awhile and then stopped working altogether. Battery wouldn't hold its charge and then motor died out completely.
  • Pathetic little motor that simply doesn't cut.
  • I returned mine due to the poor performance of the units motor.
  • Battery wouldn't hold its charge and then motor died out completely.
Philips Norelco Series 7200 BT7215/49 Vacuum Beard trimmer
  • The motor and battery life are great.
  • The blades and motor seem much better than the Panasonic, I have to make only one or two passes instead of 5.
  • It was easy to use and the ergonomics of the trimmer was well designed.
  • Excellent blade quality and tons of adjustable settings with a nice, responsive control wheel.
  • The adjustable trim setting makes it easy to set your own style.
  • Motor doesn't seem powerful.
  • The motor is so weak it simply rips the hair out and the plastic depth guide so flimsy it bends and completely messes up any hopes of beard evenness.

What customers say about "Power"
Braun MGK3020 Men's Beard Trimmer for Hair / Head Trimming
  • For a rechargeable trimmer, it lasts a long time.
  • It also comes with a rechargeable battery with enough power for a 40 minute shave in a 10 hour charging time.
  • Have been using it for about 3 weeks on the first charge, and have not had to recharge.
  • Lost initial charge quickly and would never fully recharge.
  • At around two years the rechargeable batteries simply stop holding a charge before the blades become dull.
