    First, let me explain that I like the five o'clock shadow look, which requires daily trimming to be neat and maintained. However, the 'neat and maintained' commitment took too much daily, valuable, time from my fishing addiction, standing in front of a mirror primping and trimming. YUK! I have tried various facial hair and beard trimmers, edgers, and electric shavers without much success. So, I welcomed the opportunity to try a complimentary Phillips OneBlade Pro Wet/Dry Trimmer for review. After receiving the Phillips OneBlade Pro, I immediately plugged it in to charge. The indicator at the center of the shave body told me it was at a 100% after about an hour of charging. Okay, now comes the 'proof-of-the-pudding'. Since this unit was touted as a Wet/Dry shaver I put it to the test. I got into my shower and set the adjustable dial to .8. Having never shaved in the shower before this was a whole new experience for me. I did not use any shaving cream or gel. I followed the instructions and shaved in long even strokes. No 'pull' or 'gotcha' on any facial hairs – smooth and trimmed neatly. My facial skin felt soothing and not the slightest bit irritated after my first shower shave. I even cleaned the OneBlade under the running water of the shower head. How convenient is that? WooHoo! Here are some of the outstanding features of the Phillips OneBlade Pro Wet / Dry Trimmer: * OneBlade lets you trim, edge, and shave any length of facial hair without shaving too close to your skin. * Dial up one of the 14 lock-in length settings to get everything from a stubbly shadow, or trim your beard, mustache, sideburns, and the settings even allow for some hair trimming. * OneBlade allows you to follow the contour of your face without grabbing or nicking. * You can shave WET OR DRY with or without shave cream or gel. * You can use the razor against 'the grain', vertically or horizontally. * OneBlade shaving technology integrates a fast moving cutter (200x per second) with a dual protection system. It is very comfortable on your skin. * The blades are designed for lasting performance. For optimal performance, you will only need to replace the blade every 4 months*. Replacement is easy and hassle free. * OneBlade is easy to clean - just rinse it under the tap / shower. Unit is water resistant. * LED digital display shows status of battery and travel lock. Battery light flashes orange: battery is almost empty. Battery light flashes white or green: battery is charging. Battery light lights up continually: battery is fully charged. * Rechargeable Li-Ion battery delivers 90 minutes of constant styling power after a 1 hour charge. *Full two-year Warranty by Phillips Electronics. What's Included: * OneBlade Pro Handle Unit with LED Display * One Blade, Two-Sided Razor Blade * One Trimming Comb with Fourteen Length Settings * One Charging Stand and Charging Cord * Travel Pouch * User Manual After a week of grooming I am convinced that the OneBlade Pro is the best trimmer / shaver I've ever used. It is simple and easy to learn how to effectively trim the areas you want evenly. Most important to me is after trimming my facial hair and sideburns - it blends in so well that it is not pronounced. Nothing worse then a layered, choppy look on your sideburns that screams, 'rank amateur'. The speed of the two-sided blade makes shaving and trimming fast. This baby is so multi-functional it allowed me to neatly trim the hair on the back of my neck using the adjustable, trimmer comb. How cool is that? YooHoo! Prior to the OneBlade Pro I had both a trimmer and separate shaver. Now, the OneBlade has replaced both of them and is more compact, easier to use, and I love the adjustable trimmer comb, which makes it so versatile. I highly recommend the Phillips OneBlade Pro Wet / Dry Trimmer. It makes a great gift for guys with beards, mustaches, and facial hair of their own personal styles. It can be packed away easily for trips and stores conveniently on its own space-saving, power docking, charging stand. But, the performance of the OneBlade is the most outstanding feature. After my first trim it dawned on me why they call it OneBlade 'PRO'. Consider giving this to a special family member or friend, it will make a great Christmas, Birthday, or any occasion gift.

    Terrific Trimmer

    Design: Simply put, the Philips OneBlade Pro is an innovative trimmer, and it all starts with the design. Its sleek and straightforward look is appealing to see on my bathroom countertop, and minimal space is taken up. Although it is larger than a razor, the OneBlade is significantly smaller than any other trimmer I have owned. In addition, the included dock is nice to have so that the trimmer can be propped up in a designated spot instead of laying down somewhere, which would take up more space. When you open the box and get your hands on the OneBlade Pro, you will notice that it feels like a premium device due to its durable build and simple (yet elegant) silver with black and green color scheme. The blades themselves also seem durable. Finally, the battery indicator screen is a nice additional feature, which helps you keep track of how much battery is left. Performance: The Philips OneBlade Pro performs exceptionally well. I use it about every other day to trim up stubble, and I am impressed with its ability to provide a smooth shave every time. I have not had any complaints about battery life because one charge can last up to 90 minutes, and I usually have it on the dock charging after each use anyway. The OneBlade is like a hybrid between an electric trimmer and a razor, and it utilizes the best features of both, convenience and performance. No other electric trimmer that I have used has been able to provide a razor-like shave as close and smooth as the OneBlade Pro. As for the convenience, it is very easy to use and versatile, which I elaborate on below. Versatility: After the first charge, which only takes a short amount of time, the OneBlade is ready to use out of the box. I did not initially need to read the directions, but I still recommend glancing through them to have a full understanding of what the OneBlade can do and how to use it correctly. Since the OneBlade Pro is water-resistant, you can shave with a wet face, in the shower, or even with shave cream. My preference is too wet my face or apply a small amount of shave cream before using the OneBlade because it glides much easier and works better than it does if your face is dry. Additionally, the water resistance allows you to simply rinse off the blade when you are done using the trimmer. The blades are dual-sided, so you can shave in either direction and not have to worry about cutting yourself. As for the precision, the included 14-length comb works effectively to provide the exact length desired. In addition, the top or bottom of the blade can be used for edging, so there is honestly nothing more that I wish the OneBlade could do. Verdict: Owning the OneBlade Pro has allowed me to successfully consolidate my electric trimmer and razor into one device without sacrificing features or performance. Although I have not tested the OneBlade out on a thick beard, it works perfectly for my uses (trimming and edging stubble), and it is very versatile. I have absolutely no complaints, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a razor-like shave with the features and convenience of an electric trimmer.

    Great Electric Razor With A Problematic Trimmer

    Posted

    The Philips Norelco OneBlade Pro Wet/Dry Trimmer is an electric razor with a different design than rotary razors (or other razors that trim whiskers using a blade against some kind of screen). It uses a replaceable shaving surface (the OneBlade) that is similar in size and shape to a multi-blade razor. But the Philips razor operates more like a little orbital sander for your whiskers (though you can’t really feel the movement of the shaving surface against your skin). It works wet or dry - with or without shaving cream or gel. You can even use it in the shower. The top and bottom of each surface is designed for edging - the top of each “blade” drives the trimmer. Each OneBlade razor is supposed to last up to four months. For shaving, I got the best results using just a small amount of shaving gel to insure the razor could move smoothly over the contours of my face. It gives nearly as close a shave as a blade razor but gives a better shave than any other electric razor I have ever used (no pulled whiskers and no razor burns from having to grind into difficult areas). It did, however, take me a few tries to figure out the best angle, pressure, and direction to use for the best shave - my first shave left me a little patchy but by the third day, I had things pretty well figured out. The razor needed to be fully charged before its first use but charged very quickly. There is a display on the handle that shows you the remaining charge level when you turn the razor off. After five shaves, I still had a charge of over 90%. The trimmer attachment secures over the OneBlade and clicks into the handle. You can then control the cut using a dial on top of the trimmer - settings allow for trimmed hair lengths between 1/32” and 13/32” (well, technically, between .4mm and 10mm since the settings are marked in metric). The trimmer attachment works just fine but is awkward and clumsy - difficult and unintuitive to hold and use. If someone was facing you to trim your beard, the trimmer would fit naturally in their hand - but the angle you need to use to trim your own beard is cumbersome (and is uncomfortable in my hand). Overall, I’m very impressed with the OneBlade Pro razor but I wish they had thought-through the trimmer attachment a little bit more.

    Surprisingly Well Rounded Compact Trimmer

    The Philips Norelco One Blade Pro is a pretty good compact trimmer. It excels at it's primary job, namely cutting hair with an adjustable comb allowing you to go from a clean shave (sans comb) to a manicured trim. Battery life is excellent and it's safe travel feature, which prevents accidental turn-on during travel, ensures that you'll always have the full life available when you reach your destination. It has some of the same issues as other compact trimmers, namely that the comb can get choked with hair, so one needs to periodically clean that out if working with longer than about half an inch of hair growth. Where this really excels is in battery life, consistency of shave, post shave comfort, and consistent level adjustments with the comb. The One Blade pro is a cordless rechargeable trimmer. It uses disposable trimming blades with a cost around $10 each. However, these blades will last significantly longer than a razor blade while providing just as clean a shave or the ability to trim hair to a custom height. The size and weight are pretty good for one-handed use and fully charged battery is good for weeks of use, assuming regular shaving. Build quality and design are pretty good - definitely stands out from cheap travel trimmers. It comes with a stand that while plastic, is weighted such that with the One Blade Pro attached, it does a good job at resisting tipping over from the random bumps that sometimes occur as you're moving around in front of the bathroom sink. I'll admit, I also have the non-pro version of the One Blade. It comes with a set of fixed height combs. Like other compact trimmers, quality of height always seems to be an issue so I almost never bother with the combs. They either don't stay in place very well, the adjustment mechanism tends to be brittle, and I spend too much time manually correcting for height errors. That's not the case with the Pro. For those who work on manicuring beards or who may task their trimmers for light head duty, this is a significant improvement for trimmers in this class. Hands down, a winning feature. Battery life is pretty good. However, good battery life is almost a requirement at this point. The One Blade Pro takes things a notch further by adding ON/OFF switch protection while traveling. By pressing the ON button for a few seconds, you activate a mode where a simple press will not cause the trimmer to turn ON. This is enough of an issue that I usually travel with either disposable razors or a cheap AAA battery powered trimmer where I can remove the battery. Even then, I tend to only use the razor or trimmer when absolutely necessary as they're typically a pain, too slow, and don't produce a quality shave. With the One Blade Pro, I can travel secure that my luggage won't start buzzing at random times, I'll have weeks of battery power left when I arrive at my destination with a quality trimmer. Even better, the One Blade Pro comes with a nice travel bag! The trimmer does a good job with and without the comb. Sans comb, one can achieve a pretty close shave. A razor will still give a cleaner shave, so if you absolutely need the baby smooth skin that comes from a razor both removing hair and a layer of skin, this is not the trimmer for you. The ability of the comb to be consistent at achieving the set trim height is amazing. I tested this by shaving sections of my face at the 0.8, 2, and 4 levels. At first, I wasn't quite sure there was a difference between 0.8 and 2. Prepared for disappointment, I set the comb back to 0.8, and ran it over the 2mm shaved area. To my surprise, the hair there was visibly trimmed by half. The comb is pretty stable at longer hair lengths as well. While I'm hard pressed to think of a situation where I'd need that fine a granularity between "close shave" and "2mm stubble", it's goes to the quality of the design that I can achieve it. In summary, I'm pretty impressed with the One Blade Pro. It's replacing my existing One Blade as my primary razor and will serve equally well as my travel razor. When this line was first introduced, I admit to thinking it was all hype. But now, after trying out the Pro, I'm a full convert.

    Multi-purpose and Soft on the Skin

    This little buddy is a must have for me. I hope you appreciate the details I provide; but this shaver/trimmer fills an important grooming slot. First of all, it is solid and comes with just enough directions to understand the features and how to use it. However, there are Youtube videos on its predecessor that you might find useful also for this unit. It does have a charging feature where you can plug directly into the device or place it in an included stand – the connector works for both. When traveling you don’t need to take the stand and I found this minor design point as a major plus that you don’t see in other rechargeable units. It has an LCD screen to tell you the charge. In fifteen minutes of shaving it went down 5%. Normally I don’t take that long but this was my initial test. I shaved without the attachment and it does a great job although a razor would shave closer if you need baby- butt smooth. If you have some sensitivity like me, you will like just shaving with this unit with or without water and or shaving cream and throw away ones razor. I am getting older so pardon if this offends but I shave my ears a bit. It is dangerous with a razor but this unit is perfect and I love it. You can also shave your eyebrows and the bridge of your nose and even down your nose and under your nose easily and this avoids danger from a razor in those areas as well. Now the snap on device allows you to use this unit as a beard trimmer. I have a beard that is kept about 3 mm long. You can dial the length of the beard in mm. You will need to find the right setting for you. Worked perfectly at 4 mm for me. I noticed that against my Wahl beard trimmer this unit left the beard more even. So if your beard is a bit curly it does a great job too. I also used it to trim my mustache with the attachment. For the area above your mustache, I simply removed the beard trimmer part and it worked great. I highly recommend this unit – wonderful.

    This shaver is so amazing you will shave way more often and you might shave whole face/head in a happy frenzy! I got this shaver to replace an old $400 shaver I still have and starting off with the unboxing experience it's pretty straight forward. You get the shaver, one blade piece, one trimmer attachment, a nice charging stand to make life easier and a nice enough shaving case/bag to carry it in. Once you get past that you grab your unit and shave. The blade gets really close without cutting myself like crazy or what my old shaver would do is YANK my hair out as it tries to cut. Thank you for that Phillips! The unit is a close shave and even after shaving my entire face it only lost 5% of it's battery. Looking forward to a long battery life with this unit. I have nothing bad to say about this shaver and some might say but yeah you are now hooked on their blades for life but my response to that would be. If I think of it like this I saved over $300 getting this one over another one my old clunky ones so I can afford the blades. Also, I had an old shaver that wanted to replace the blades after 9 months so it can't be helped plus they are pretty cheap. I hope my review helped you in your decision and seriously buy this I would be seriously surprised if you returned it.

    A hybrid experience

    Posted

    One thing right off the bat - this product is not meant to replace a regular shaver (electric or blade). It mentions this right in the booklet. So, if you are wanting a baby smooth shave - this product is probably not for you. If, however, you are like me and have a beard - or even just like to sport a "stubbly" look - this product definitely IS for you! The oneblade pro is a hybrid between a regular blade and an electric trimmer. The battery goes from empty to fully charged in about 45 mins. Though, the booklet states it takes closer to an hour. On a full charge, you get roughly an hour and a half of run time, which imo is very generous. The only attachment you need (and the only one included, FYI) is an adjustable length guard. The one thing that struck me right away when trimming my beard was how precise it was on the first pass - no more "variable length beard" for me! Nor does the product tug and cause irritation. Taking the length guard off - you can use the product as a "shaver" to shave down to stubble. Again, very precise and no irritation whatsoever. Where there is a bit of a learning curve - you must shave against the grain. Otherwise, the hairs will not properly engage in the blade. I found this to be awkward at first - but quickly got the hang of it. Where this product truly excels, IMO, is its very precise ability to "edge" your beard (or mustache, etc). The product creates very clean lines and the unit felt good enough in my hand that I was confident that I wouldn't slip and cause a beard-astrophe. The only minor negative I can come up with is that the blade itself is disposable. You must replace it every 3 to 4 months. This however is a small process to pay to ensure a quality shaving experience. Definitely a quality product - and one that will be in my daily routine from now on.

    Replaceable blades make this a winner

    They call this a "hybrid", but it's not really a shaver. Well, maybe. The claim is that it will shave to a "5 o'clock shadow", but after skipping a couple of days, it's really more of a 5 o'clock tomorrow. To be used a shaver, it's meant for someone who keeps a closely trimmed beard. That aside, this is an excellent trimmer. The almost infinitely adjustable head makes it easy to give a uniform look to your beard & sideburns. I also like the slenderness of it - you're working a smaller part of your face, and that gives a nicer cut. I've owned a huge amount of these things, and for about $25 each, once it gives me the first "pinch", i know it's time to trash it for a new one. So i welcome the idea of the replaceable blade (yes, blade, not head.) I haven't had it long enough to test the claim of 4 month replacement cycle; however i generally take these claims with a grain of salt and my expectation is to get half that time. I see a 2 pack of blades goes for about $24. The other thing you get by going with the Pro model is a lithium battery instead of a nicad. That's nice not only for longer life, but lithiums will give you the rated voltage over the length of the charge, whereas the voltage on nicads lower as the battery drains. And that means more pinches & jammed blades. I also like the compact setup of it. The bath vanity & shelves are always competing with a hundred different products, so a space saver is always welcome. I do really like the operation of this unit, the reason i didn't give it the 5th star is well within 2 years you're going to double the price of the trimmer in replacement blades. Either the price of the trimmer or the blades needs to come down somewhat to make it an outstanding buy.
