    This review is coming from an individual who has been using the Norelco G370 before. I absolutely loved the G370. The versatility of that trimmer is nothing short of amazing. It had many attachments - adjustable lengths, nose trimmer, close shave trimmer, fine head, regular head, and I believe I'm missing one, but oh well. All you have to know that it was my favorite trimmer. The biggest downside was the charging time, and the discharge time. It needed 10 HOURS, to charge for 30 minutes of use. Needless to say, it wasn't always there for me. Here comes the Norelco 5100. Right off the bat, what really caught my eye on this product was the 5 YEAR WARRANTY. Yes, you heard that right. It's completely optional, as you have to register for the 5 year warranty. I believe if you don't sign up for it, you get a standard of 2 years. Anyways, back to the actual trimmer. It's much bigger than the G370. However, it has a nice heft, and shape to it. It comes with a regular buzzer, and 3 attachments. One being a very short beard setting, medium beard, and long beard, though there's very little difference between medium and long. It has a knob in the middle that rotates, and each rotation determines what offset the blade is from the attachment. It ranges from 0.4mm to 13mm, with 0.4-7mm going in 0.2 mm increments, then after that it's 1mm. It gives you a decent gap between lengths. The unit itself is actually completely waterproof. You can wash this thing right after you use it to clean it all off. I don't actually turn it on while it's wet or under water, because i still don't want to risk it, but know that i've washed it every time i trimmed myself. This thing also works on hair, too. I've use the medium beard attachment and adjusted with the knob to the setting i like, and start cutting. It cuts really well, for both hair and beard. The battery life on this thing is amazing. 1 hour of charge yields 70 minutes of usage. This is lightyears ahead compared to the G370's 10 hour charge for 30 minutes of use. Overall, I would recommend this unit to anyone who is considering it. Hope this review was helpful.

    Almost a 5 Star Beard trimmer

    This beard trimmer works extremely well, I just feel it is a bulky, hard to reach right under the nose and a little hard to clean. For the past 10yrs I had been buying a cheaper model Norelco for $20 and all of the issues i have with this model didn’t exist. I would have purchased the same cheaper model, but it’s no longer in production. Overall I am satisfied with this beard trimmer and the more I use it, the more I am getting used to the bulkiness.

    A Very Good Trimmer

    I needed to replace my old beard trimmer and the waterproof aspect of this one is what ultimately sold me on it. Clean up is so much easier when you can just run it under the faucet. My only gripe is the length-adjustment: it has a click wheel that you rotate, which makes it easy for bits of hair to get stuck in there. Also you have to turn it all the way down to the lowest level to make sure the length is right every time you swap out the top piece (or take it out to clean). It's not perfect, but it's a solid trimmer with a lot of great features for a good price.

    Honestly, this is my second Norelco trimmer and it never fails. I purchased my first one about 5 years back and the only reason I upgraded is because I lost my charger lol. I also purchased a new one because they are so modestly priced. The fact that it's water resistant make this even better. I use this to buzz cut my hair and it works great in the shower. The dial system to adjust the length is the best thing about this. It's a sturdy metal knob that adjusts the length of the blade, giving you an even trim with each glide. Will definitely recommend to anyone.

    Bought this for my millennial son who has shaved his head and grown a full, bushy beard. He needed a new trimmer for the beard and he has found it to be the perfect balance between trimming ability and size/weight. He uses it once a week to keep things tidy between his visits to the barbershop. There are not too many overly complicated attachments- just the basics for trimming. Good value for the price.

    Weekly use

    I use this maybe once a week for my beard and head, but I have only charged it once so far and it seems to be maintaining the power level. I've only used about a month and a half so far but I do like how close it shaves my head. My wife like a little stubble, but it's still pretty close. it recommends not charging it frequently as it will shorten the life of the battery, so I guess I won't charge it until I notice a change in power. Like the different trimmer accessories so I can trim the beard to the shortness I want.

    Solid trimmer

    I do d a pile of research and this one was on the short list. Despite how many bearded hipsters there are these days, you’d think there’d be more options but they likely trim with fancy scissors or something. Anyway, I’ve only used it for about a month so cannot say much for longevity but so far, so good. Sharp blades, trims smoothly and the attachments are decent. I do find it a tad bulky but only compared to my last trimmer. No major complaints and reasonably priced.

    Not bad but not perfect

    The trimmer does a pretty good job of trimming beard hair. You do need to go over each spot on your face multiple times to make sure all the hairs get trimmed to the same length. The beard trimmer attachment, even at the longest setting, trims hair kind of short. If you're looking to trim and keep a longer beard you need to use the haircut attachment. Overall for the price this is a pretty solid investment as I liked the ability to rinse out the trimmer with water.
