    I had an old Panasonic trimmer with the same kind of cutting head I loved.After a long time ,10 years maybe,the motor went up.So I decided on giving this model a try.It works well ,just need to clean it out as soon as you hear a different noise from the motor.This is no different than saying you need to clean a vacuum clearer in order to work better.As for a battery instead of rechargeable ,the battery option is much better because I have a rechargeable Panasonic hair trimmer and need to charge it all the time.This cleaner cuts nicely and gets the job done ,worth buying as a single use item.

    Great Battery Operated Trimmer

    I purchased this trimmer as my other one has worn out from age and the battery, That one was a rechargeable unit that was over 10 years old. This new trimmer is powered by a single AA battery which is not rechargeable but operates fairly well. The main difference is the power of the newer model is less because of lower voltage. I like the easy cleaning method of this Panasonic trimmer allowing you to rinse out and air dry by just twisting the top off. It's waterproof and a lot quieter and still will cut fine/coarse hair without a problem. This is a nice item for travel since no power cords or adapters are required.

    No hair pulling so far... but the battery usage?

    I purchased this for my husband after looking at reviews on here. His first experience using it was dry; he had no hair pulling from the trimmer. It does say it's a wet or dry trimmer so hopefully using it wet won't make a difference. He did say it seemed to use quite a bit of battery life to operate but it hasn't been very long since he started using it. We think part of that may have been the cheapo batteries we used to test it out. Time will tell, but so far so good! One last thing: it stands up on its own, which I think I read from a different review it would but I still didn't expect it to... so yay for that. :)

    I bought the ER-GN30 after my previous Panasonic bit the dust after many years of great service. The ER-GN30 does a good job as for trimming nose hairs (only thing I use it for). It doesn't trim quite as close as the old model Panasonic I had did, but as stated it does do a good job. Personally I prefer the round head trimmer over the flat / straight style as some of them will pull the hair pretty hard before cutting it. I have heard that even some of the round head ones will do the same, but I can say neither one of the Panasonics I have had do.

    This trimmer does what it promises to do fairly well. It is well-designed and as far as I have experienced, it works equally well for wet or dry trimming, but it doesn't trim very close and it has left several partially severed hairs clinging to their roots. This is most likely user error, but I do take time and care to be as precise as possible so who knows. On a more positive note, the hypoallergenic blades and smooth protector make this a very comfortable trimmer to use.

    I wasn't actually looking for this exact item. But, it was on sale for $9.00, so I couldn't pass it up. It works exactly as advertised. I had an important meeting with work, and people have joked about the afro in my nostrils. And I had noticed the hair in and on my ears. So I decided to take some action. I went to Best Buys to try and find some kind of trimmer. It worked great in my nose. Someone else handled the hair in my ear.

    I purchased this on a whim because it was on special. I have needed one for a while but really this isn't something we think about. I mean, honestly I don't spend that much time looking at my nose! So when it popped up I decided to grab it. I was a little apprehensive at first I mean come on this thing is supposed to cut the hair out of my nose I didn't want it up there. It was surprisingly pleasant and no pain was involved. It tickled a wee bit.

    I've been very happy with the unit, it is quiet, it cleans easy, its easy to use, and its 99% painless. My one and only complaint is the ergonomic design makes it unstable standing up in the cupboard. I can't tell you how many times it either fell over or was easily knocked over. Would it keep me from buying it again.... no, just be aware that that it falls over easily.

    Got it for my hubby for Xmas. Very handy little thing. I don't know about "facial hair", but it works pretty well for the nose and ears. The only drawback is that after having it for 6 months, the motor seems to be slowing down (when turned on, the buzzing sound is lower and "weaker"). Thought it might be the batteries, changed to fresh ones - same thing. Nevertheless, it's still running and at the price of $12 it's worth it.

    So far this No shaver works really good the only thing is the battery seems to go low on me a little faster than what I would like and I have to put a new battery in maybe I should use a better battery I'm using a generic battery I'm going to try a Duracell or Energizer but other than that the price is good for the quality and if it holds up for a year I will be happy thank you

    This is my second one of these. With the first, I made the mistake of cleaning the unit from the top down w/water, which caused water to get into the battery compartment, rendering the trimmer useless. Make sure when cleaning with water, point the tip/blade down and be careful not to get water anywhere else. Would recommend this trimmer.

    I've tried other trimmers and found this one to be the quietest and most comfortable. I did have to return my first one, after 3 weeks, when the on off switch started acting up. When I got the replacement I also picked up the extended warranty. I love how this product can get into hard to reach places. I've had the replacement exactly one month with no problems.

    Most reliable trimmer I've used to date

    I have used various models of trimmers in the past and this model by far is the most superior. It is powerful enough to keep cutting even with thicker hair and the blades stay sharp and never tug. Really easy to use and the water flow through cleaning system works great. Definitely a must buy if you need a compact, reliable trimmer for a reasonable price.

    This machine is very effective at trimming nose hairs - I like the fact that it does not irritate. My only negative is that the machine does not always go on when the switch is turned to the on position. I have to fidget with the blade a little bit and eventually (after 10 seconds or so) the power comes on.

    It def does the job. I like how you could wash after use. The only issue I have is possibly the blades. There are times that it doesn't seem to cut but actually pulls (since the blades aren't too sharp perhaps)? which cause a tingling sensation. Otherwise it works as expected.

    I personally use this to trim my nose hairs as well as groom my eyebrows (which are pretty thick) and this guy does the trick! No snag on your hairs so your not left in tears of pain after but with how it's set up/built i sometimes miss a few. Overall great.

    This is a great trimmer. I really like the contoured handle and the power it has! My only complaint is the head could be a bit longer to get into those hard to reach places. That is why I took off a star. Otherwise, superior to other trimmers I have used.

    The water pass-through for cleaning is a nice feature. I am in no way a Sasquatch, but a stronger motor that provides more RPMs would be nicer. Although I have not had it bog down on me, it sounds like it is struggling sometimes even on the finest of hairs.

    Love this garbage can. Very sleek looking and easy to use. Everyone who sees it always makes a compliment. Very good conversation piece. Only one thing I would change is that i wish the opening were a little bigger, sometimes have to fold things up to fit it in.
