Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 (BG2040/49) body trimmer and shaver
  • I was afraid that the flat head might be a little too large for use, but its not and it has never hurt any skin down under ever.
  • I like the sharpness and cutting of the blades. I would prefer a longer handle, maybe 2 inches longer The linger handle would make shaving my back much easier.
  • The Foil replacement head started to rust after few months. Otherwise it was a Very good product.
  • wish the length of trimming guard was a tad greater what is available on the trimmer shaver is a bit short for my beard... other then that works great!!!!!
  • However my only complaint with it is that you must go slow or you will easily cut yourself with the blades on the trimmer side but other than that the razor is great.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7200 (BG2039/42) beard and body trimmer and shaver
  • It has 5 different length settings so you can trim the hair in different places to different lengths.
  • This product exceeded my expectations. Grooming my beard to specific length was easy and comfortable. Shaving smooth my chest hair using the foil end was a little scary at first, but I became very comfortable after a few strokes.
  • It's great, it has "length" settings to go from longer to shorter trims. I basically went from long to short since I was a little nervous cutting it with this shaver. No pain at all.
  • The clipper guards are pretty wide between settings, so if you're looking for a closer trim or more specific beard length, you're not going to get it with this trimmer. Also the blade is very sharp and the teeth are wide-set, so they will bite/cut you if you are not gentle.
  • Compared to other trimmers, the length settings seem a bit different. The 1 seemed to trim more like a 2 compared to other trimmers. But since the quality of the trim is good, the simple adjustment isn't a huge inconvenience.

Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 (BG2040/49) body trimmer and shaver
  • Design of the product makes it easy to handle on the body.
  • Is very easy to use like the older models but this one got a firm touch but also gentle enough to use every 3 to 4 days.
  • IT is probably the best down under shaver you are going to find, its light, safe, effective and very very maneuverable.
  • Its not heavy and does an absolute awesome job. I was amazed at how close it shaved.
  • Higher quality construction than the mangroomer line of products which are made of cheap plastic and don't work well. Easy to use.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7200 (BG2039/42) beard and body trimmer and shaver
  • It's weight is light enough that it makes it very easy to move around, but it has enough power that it doesn't pull your hair.
  • The Body Groom Pro is a solid trimmer, the weight and solid feel are just right for long trimming and grooming sessions.
  • I also liked the weight, seemed sturdy (go figure). I also liked the design which in my opinion helped me to 'reach' (at this point let me re-iterate, make sure you clean yourself properly).
  • This item feels like it is built very well. It has a little weight to it but i think that can be a good thing. At least its not all plastic. personally i think the item is a little over priced but i still love the item itself. works great.
  • There isn't much to say about this product. It's stylish, it's light-weight, it gets the job done. The Philips Norelco Bodygroom Pro is definitely a great product based on the price alone.

What customers say about "Features"
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 (BG2040/49) body trimmer and shaver
  • he trimmer settings and cut do a good job of getting the right cut and length. The shaver head provide a close comfortable shave. The unit is easy to clean and charge.
  • i was so impressed with the trimmer with the preset hair combs, that though i had no intention of using it, i ended up trimming an arm and then the rest of me.
  • As advertised it works very well with lather either trimming or saving in the shower and cleans up very well.
  • There are no attachments to keep track of, yet it allows you to shave and trim anything in any way you want.
  • It's very convenient being able to flip the groomer over to shave or groom without having to change or remove parts. Battery lasts a long time for me but I'd prefer it wasn't nickel metal hydride since you need to wait until it completely discharges before recharging it.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7200 (BG2039/42) beard and body trimmer and shaver
  • Oh, and I tried using it wet & dry, with & without shaving cream. Best results by far is when it's used wet with shaving cream. No cuts or nicks here!
  • And most importantly, it works great as a trimmer and shaver, wet or dry -- good enough I bought the same one again despite the battery experience.
  • This machine is excellent for effective personal grooming in all the right places! Works better dry for me, though you could use it wet too. You don't even need to go over your work with a regular manual razor...
  • I've found that trimming/shaving dry hair is more efficient for this Norelco. When I tried in the shower, the hair were matter and it didn't work as well.
  • With this little tool, I have yet to have a problem. Wet, which I feel does not get as close. As well as Dry, much closer shave.

What customers say about "Power"
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100 (BG2040/49) body trimmer and shaver
  • Charges fast, easy to put in and out of charging stand.
  • This has everything a guy needs which is a close shave with minimal irritation. The charge lasts a long time - hours and hours. I use it all the time, satisfactory all the way.
  • It charged up quickly, and the cradle that comes with it is practical. The trimmer does last as long as advertised.
  • The battery charges quick and lasts a long time. It's easy to clean and convenient to store.
  • Only 1 gripe is the battery charging and alert mechanism could use an update, i don't like how you don't know what charge level its at before you get into a session, and how they recommend you don't charge until its significantly discharged.
  • Battery stops charging after about a year and then you are forced to toss the thing since you can't replace the battery.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7200 (BG2039/42) beard and body trimmer and shaver
  • Holds a charge for a really long time.Allows more frequent trims which take much lest time than the semi-annual hair fest you are staging in your bathroom now.
  • Holds a charge reasonably well and one charge will get you through 2-3 trimmings. Will NOT leave you razor blade smooth... nor razor blade bleeding!
  • The battery life after a year is not so great. I find that after about 2 uses (probably about 15-20 minutes of total time), I need to recharge it. The battery does, however, charge quickly.
  • The performance and battery life are really good. I usually give it a full charge every few weeks, letting the battery run pretty low before charging.
  • The battery is my only real complaint. Coincidentally, it stopped performing right after the warranty expired. Sometimes when I take it off the charging stand it won’t turn on, while other times it will have enough energy to take care of a few select areas.
