    Excellent Trimmer For What It Is Designed For

    Was anxious to receive this complimentary Panasonic Wet/Dry Beard and Hair Trimmer to see how it performed trimming the hair on the back of my neck, especially, and, my sideburns to include the area around my ears. Have had several cordless hair cutting systems, which claimed to trim eyebrows, nose hair, sideburns, mustache, beard, nape of the neck, around ears, and even goatees. To their collective credit they were great trimming nose hair, eyebrows, and as a 'mini-shaver'. But when it came to my sideburns, and, especially the hair on the back of my neck, and around my ears they all failed.. As a Retiree I spend six to ten hours a day outside most days of the week, all year around. Fortunately for me the mild climate here, in North Florida, has allowed me to be 'active' with my Grand Children, Gardening, and the general upkeep of six acres of heavily treed land. Since I have worked outside for over fifty years there are several areas from my neck up that I have found need special attention concerning hair trimming. The back of my neck has always been an 'issue'. The combination of heat, perspiration and growing hair on the back of my neck has caused me to break out numerous times. My barber has recommended to keep that area trimmed of hair as much as I could 'till the next haircut. The multi-purpose cordless trimmers did trim that area but because they could only trim in a 'dry-environment', they irritated the back of my neck and the situation went from bad to worse. So, my ever-gracious barber offered to trim the hair on the back of my neck once a week for free if he had the time, and, it was convenient for me, but according to his schedule. Very generous offer, but not practical. When I received the Panasonic Wet/Dry Beard and Hair Trimmer the very first thing I did after charging it up was to take into the shower and shave the hair off the back of my neck while it was wet. No razor burn from 'dry-shaving' and it was quick, wet, and painless. WooHoo! Having water on the back of my neck while trimming made an unbelievable difference. My old cordless trimmers averaged about three-quarters of an inch in width – the Panasonic Wet/Dry Trimmer is approximately one and three quarters inches wide with an abundance of settings to satisfy all men's hair trimming requirements. Both features conveniently make it possible to spend less time involved on trimming and grooming, and the results are great. Maintenance is simple and routine. The important thing is to oil the trimmer at the designated areas before and after trimming. Since it is a wet/dry trimmer, water will 'dry-up' any lubrication necessary fir optimum performance. Use the furnished bottle of oil as recommended. After two week of trimming with this Panasonic I have learned how to be more efficient with trimming using the appropriate settings on the trimmer ( 1-10mm). Easy 'Learning-Curve'. The trimmer itself is ruggedly built, light-weight enough to handle easily, and is designed for a 'man's hand'. I am impressed with the hair-trimming efficiency regarding the cutting width of this unit over the much smaller cordless units I have used in the past. Once you get used to the wider width trimming is not only simple, but fast. After using this trimmer for two weeks I am impressed what it can do for what it was designed for. It is not going to trim your nose hair, hair in your ears, or, eyebrows. But it can keep your next haircut looking sharper a lot longer and give you that well-groomed look the ladies like so much. This trimmer is also so uncomplicated to clean and lubricate. After a full-charge, approximately fifteen hours, it will last approximately a full thirty minutes of trimming time. Now, that sounds like something is wrong, however, the trimmer motor is very powerful, the trimmer is extra wide, blades sharp and efficient. After two weeks I am still working on the initial charge, and I have used this trimmer three-times a week. It does not take long to what you have to trim. However, I do not have a full-beard, nor a mustache, or a goatee. Obviously these would require extra trim-time. Please keep in mind that this Panasonic Wet/Dry Beard and Hair Trimmer was NOT designed to trim nose hair, hair inside of your ears, nor eyebrows. I personally recommend this Panasonic Wet/Dry Beard and Hair Trimmer for trimming hair on the back of your neck, especially, around your ears, sideburns, and for beards, mustaches, and goatees. This would make a great 'Fathers' Day' Gift, Graduation, Birthday, Christmas, or, any other occasion you can think of.

    Solid Single-Purpose Cordless Trimmer

    If you want a no-frills cordless device that simply trims hair and doesn't have 10,000 different attachments, this may be for you. Initially, I was surprised and disappointed when I opened the box. There was only one attachment, and that is a plastic comb that goes over the blades. These days, I'm used to seeing a variety of attachments that allow a trimmer to perform different functions. But this trimmer has one function: trimming hair. To be fair, it does a very good job trimming hair, particularly for a cordless trimmer. The blades are sharp and consistent. I appreciate the dial that allows you to set the trim height. The trimmer itself feels solid and well-made. It can be used wet or dry. It functioned as well as trimmers I've used with cords, which says something about how strong the battery is. However, the blade head is pretty wide. This is great for trimming hair on your head and cheeks, but not nearly as good for trimming a mustache. You can't do any detail work with this trimmer. If you don't need detail work, that's fine. But if you do, you'll want a different trimmer. I skimmed the description on BB, which indicates you can use the trimmer while charging. Nope, the charging base plugs directly into a power outlet, and then the trimmer has to sit in the charging base to charge. There is no cord, so there is no way to use the trimmer while charging. This entire setup is annoying, actually. The charger is bulky and may block your use of other outlets. It also comes with a packet of lubricating oil and a small cleaning brush. In my tests, it has held a charge well, and it has plenty of power for trimming hair. I was impressed with how it functioned. So, if all you want is to trim hair and don't mind the charging setup, go for it. But if you want any other options, there are products on the market that are more versatile. Due to the limited functionality and the annoyance of the charger setup, the highest I could rate this is a 4-star, but I again note it does a very good job as a basic trimmer, which is its sole function. Unfortunately, due to the charger and the limited functionality, I can't really recommend this product to most people, although it will be good for a specific use if you don't mind the charger setup.

    Great trimmer at a terrific price

    About 4 years ago I purchased the Panasonic ER-GB40 trimmer and was very impressed with it, considering how little I paid for it. With this trimmer, Panasonic has managed to improve the small imperfections of the older model, while keeping the ER-GB370 affordable. Design Even though I am very satisfied with my older trimmer, there were a few design flaws I thought could be improved upon. I thought the older model handle was a little thin to hold, the plastic trimmer height was sometimes not easy to remove, and the trimmer teeth were a little too small to get a good cut without hairs being pulled. Panasonic must’ve listened to their customers, because the ER-GB370 corrected those issues by widening the grip, redesigning the plastic trimmer guard, and spacing out the trimmer teeth, while making them larger to accommodate thicker beards. I was, however, disappointed with the charger for this model. Both models can use the charging base to store the trimmer upright, but I prefer the older base more. It is nice to not have a cord to deal with on the newer model, but this omission requires the outlet to be in the upright direction (see photo). I was able to charge the unit sideways, but noticed the stress it was placing on the outlet. Functionality Panasonic was able to speed the charging from 20 hours (older model) to 15 hours (this model). I never once had a problem with running out of battery, so I cannot compare the battery life since both are great. I love being able to adjust the height of the cut just by a few simple turns on the dial. The trimmer did not pull any hairs and quickly gave my beard a professional-looking trim. I normally trim my beard at the sink, but I want to mention that it can be used in the shower too. Conclusion I recommend purchasing this trimmer if you want to affordably keep your beard nicely trimmed. It does exactly what it is designed to do, and it does it well.

    A really good cordless hair and beard trimmer

    This is a really good hair and beard trimmer, but does not come with multiple attachments for other things. I believe this is the right decision, because too often when trying to do too many things, it becomes not very good any of the things. Panasonic did a good job designing and building this cordless hair and beard trimmer. Why do I say this? There are quite a few things about it that I like, and only a couple of things I had wished were different. The unit is easy to hold and work through your hair. That is important because it isn't a tiny little machine but rather a unit that you can hold while you do your hair/beard (I used it to do my hair, I don't have a beard). The height adapter is firmly attached the unit feels sturdy and not like it is going to fall apart. The dial to adjust the height of the cut is sturdy and feels solid as you dial up and down the height selector. The on/off switch also feels very solid. And it cuts through hair like a hot knife through butter - this works really well. The charger base is without a cord, you sit the unit into the charger cradle, it sort of snaps in, and then sits there while it charges, without any cord to get tangled. The things I don't like? There is no charging indicator or remaining battery life indicator on the tool itself. There is a charging light on the charging base (that plugs into an outlet). You won't know you that you don't have enough battery left to do your hair, until it runs out part way through. So it will require more frequent charging to ensure you don't run out. I wish it had a cord that ran between the charger and the unit, because as we have so many things to plug in and charge, having a free outlet that allows for this thing to stand up and charge is a bit of a challenge. In particular in a bathroom where I will keep this, those outlets are always charging a razor, tooth brushes, or even a nightlight. Would I recommend this? Absolutely - it is the best cordless hair trimmer I've used in a number of years. I gave up trying to do my own hair, which I did for years, because I could not find a decent cordless trimmer that was easy to hold, sturdy, and with a wide enough head to keep this task to a minimum as far as going back through over and over again. There is a small brush and oil that comes with the unit, which is great. I only wish it came with a little bag to keep everything in, especially since I don't want little pieces of hair all over the place and would rather than end up in the little bag.

    I gifted my guy this beard trimmer; but, my expectations were that he would be able to eliminate shaving with a blade. Instead, when he cuts his hair, he will be able to use the trimmer for very specific tasks such as trimming his mustache, his sideburns and the nape of his neck. He tried both the wet/dry option and prefers the wet with the tool set at the lowest setting to get the closest cut for his beard. The settings panel is on the face of the handle and is graded to offer the user a wide range of hair lengths, 19 total settings (0.5 mm gaps from 1mm to 10mm)! The tool also has a really balanced and rugged feel in the hand with an easily removed comb to afford the user the option to put the metal trimmer directly on the skin. He was really pleased with the refined five o’clock shadow look as a casual fashion statement; but, will opt for a blade cut when trying to get silky smooth ‘aqua velva’ results. He has that super thick hair shaft that is really hard to lift even when wet and softened with shaving cream. Mos’ def is that this device is cordless and designed to sit in its charger for direct mounting into an outlet. More fun is the water proof body that allows shaving in the shower. There is maintenance.: Was a bit difficult trying to remove the shaver head. Instructions are not super clear for head removal; but, he was finally able to figure it out. You are provided a small brush to clean the teeth of the shaver after each use; and, a small bottle of oil is provided for oiling the teeth, before and after use. Haven’t yet found the type of oil in the instructions; so, maybe I will have to call corporate when the oil bottle needs to be refilled. Best battery protocol is to let the tool run down to zero power before recharging. A full charge allows 30 minutes of use. Pay attention to the battery management in the instructions to get the most life out of the battery. Thankfully, the battery won’t get hurt by overcharging; but, we will both monitor charging to remove the tool from the outlet after a day’s worth of charging. So, for those good at micro-management of your grooming tools and protocols ...and, you know who you are (characteristic of Blood Type A's...this item can up your styling game if you can juggle the tool management.

    Nice cut but slow charge

    This trimmer has a solid feel and is comfortable to hold. The motor is quiet and powerful enough to cut through my beard and hair without pulling. The guard is adjustable with the ring on the trimmer. The selection clicks are solid and sturdy. The guard pulls off the trimmer allowing close and detailed trimming. The head with the guard seems a bit wide and clunky but worked just fine. Cleaning up the unit is as simple as rinsing it off and letting it dry. The only downside to this trimmer is the charging block/plug. It is a one-piece unit that the trimmer snaps into and then the whole unit plugs into the wall. This is one of those ideas that sounds great on paper and in discussion but in execution is horrible. It takes both hands to snap the trimmer into the block. Then it takes up the whole plug. This setup also prohibits using the trimmer while it's charging/dead. It does snap in solid enough that it would charge upside down if your wall plug allows it. It is also small enough that it will travel easily. The instructions say it takes 15 hours to charge the trimmer, which in the age of quick charges is just excessive, especially when you have no other options. Additionally, this will only get you about 30 minutes of use, almost requiring it be kept on the charger, taking up valuable bathroom plug real estate. There is no indication on the trimmer of the level of charge and the red light on the charger glows anytime the unit is connected and plugged in so there is no way to know when it's fully charged. Pros: Strong quiet motor Adjustable guard ring and removable comb Wet/dry use Cons: Charger 15-hour charging time 30-minute run time No charge level/full charge indicator I love the way this trims and cuts but hate the charger and it is for this reason, I would have a difficult time recommending this unit to a friend. Update the charger to give 70 minutes run time with a one hour charge like some others and this trimmer would be hard to beat.

    Amazing Clipper!

    First of all, I'd like to say that I consider myself a bit of a clipper connoisseur. I'm a very hairy man, I wear my head shaved, and do my best to keep my beard cropped down to a shadow length. But, even at shadow length I want it to be contoured, beveled, blended and faded. I'm a mature man with a round head and face, so I depend on my scruff to contour my jowls a bit, sculpt my jawline, lend a bit of prominence to my modest chin, and even obscure the beginnings of a turkey waddle. I employ a collection of clippers and outliners to achieve some semblance of symmetry , but as often as not, I fall short in my skills, causing me to appear like a Picasso portrait of his Cubist period. I then either shave it all off, or attempt to even it out over the next few days. I dread travel because I need to carry a minimum of two types of clippers, as well as my regular shaving gear. I recently received the Panasonic Precision Trimmer. My expectations were modest at best, being no strangers to the latest entries into the home grooming tools. Well, I have been proven wrong. This thing is a gift from the clipper gods. The ability to adjust bead length by DIALING in such precise increments is AMAZING! I'm truly blown away. It has totally taken the hassle out of trimming my facial hair. I'm able to fade my beard a millimeter at a time, and no worry about the attachments slipping. Also, the width of the blade allows for a more even overall outcome. The narrower shaving heads can cause high and low spots when going over the chin area, as well as the under the nose when trimming my mustache. I truly was skeptical, but in all honesty, I'm ready to throw this thing in my bag and travel. It's nice to see an innovation that actually functions as intended. I’m satisfied beyond any reasonable expectation.

    Good Trimmer, but a bit bulky for me.

    Its blade is very sharp and a replacement blade is available from the Panasonic website. Its one comb/guard is operated and adjusted by an adjustment wheel so hunting up the right one and stowing the others away is not a factor. You just rotate the dial to the desired setting and change as desired. (Length approximations as related to the numbers on the dial are given in the owners manual.) It can be used wet or dry, however cutting longer hairs/whiskers with it is not advised by Panasonic. You can easily clean it up under running water which is a nice feature. What I dont like: 1. Despite the item description on Bestbuy.com you CANNOT use the trimmer while its plugged in as the charging base plugs directly into the outlet and has no cord at all. 2. The battery is old technology, Ni-MH. Why not a lithium ion? With its 30 minute battery charge life its going to need charged a few times a week, at least for myself. 3. Really dislike the charging base plugging directly into the wall. (It prevents both outlets in a duplex from being used while its plugged in) Mine will end up on a short extension cord as soon as I can go buy one for it 4. Its bulky with a much larger trimming head than I am accustomed to using. Not upper lip friendly at all with the comb attached. 5. Weighing in at just a penny under 50 bucks throws it up into the bottom end of professional equipment prices and many of those pro models have a lithium ion battery and a much longer battery life to go with it. But if your looking for an all in one trimmer thats easy to use and clean and my dislikes are not your dislikes, this trimmer just may be what your looking for.
