    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.

    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.

    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.

    Alright so i've gone through two other trimmers specifically for men. One I purchased because it had the look of sleek and easy, and it was not! The other was just a great deal but the multiple guards that came with it are difficult to manage. Panasonic nailed this trimmer by having one guard but having this neat little gear that you tune to change which length you want to use to trim your hair. The advantages for this little guy are giving me ideas already! I can toss this guy in my gym bag for those times I need to trim after the gym but right before going out in any event I can't head home. Using in the shower was a cinch. The charging base is amazing because as opposed to other products with thin and easy to tear wires, all you do is place the trimmer on the base and plug it in to the outlet. If it isn't obvious I like simplicity and ease of use, and that is what this give you. As a guy maintaining a bunch of pieces of plastic guards, the wire, and the actual trimmer make it hard. This one has three things, the brush, the charging base, and the trimmer w/the guard. Go get it!

    Trimmer provides a nice even cut

    I am forever looking for the best possible option for keeping my facial hair trimmed and well-kept. I like portable options like this one from Panasonic. One of the reasons I like this trimmer so much is because you can use it as a wet or dry trimmer. It’s very lightweight and rechargeable, which are big perks in my opinion. The trimmer comes boxed with a wall charger, a small bottle of oil, and a cleaning brush. The wall charger is a good thought because you don’t have a cord to deal with. The design does have a few issues with it though. First of all it takes up more than one outlet and secondly, it’s a little bit of an odd gripping option when go to grab it from the charger if it’s plugged in. Other than that, the trimmer has an easy to use settings dial and power switch. It’s very quiet when powered on. It only emits a small hum. The trimmer provides a nice even cut no matter what hair you are cutting. I do wish that the charger was designed just a bit differently.

    Compact Trimmer for the Person on the Go

    This precision trimmer feels well built, its simple nothing special just like a grooming tool should be. The quick adjust dial is very convenient because it eliminates the hassle of changing comb attachments. It goes from 1 mm to 10 mm for those who want to do detailing. It also has the option to remove the comb attachment if you want to just trim freestyle. The packaging looks great. It makes the trimmer look more expensive then the price tag suggest. It doesn't come with a cord but you can connect it directly to the power adapter. I hanged the trimmer upside down on a wall outlet when charging, it didn't even fall, left it all night charging. I like this trimmer because its simple and has a lot of trimming sizes. It's not too expensive and it looks well built. This trimmer would be a good one to have for any grooming kit or for travel. It doesn't take up a lot space and its water proof!!

    A great trimmer

    While there are a couple of things that could be better about this trimmer, I still really like it and would recommend it. First, the things I like. It has a nice ergonomic shape that's easy to grip at all the different angles you need to use it. The dial to adjust the height guard is fantastic and makes it so easy to change. I also like the design of the hair guard which works better than the other 3 or 4 trimmers that I've tried over the years. Last, I like that there aren't a lot of parts to keep track off--just the trimmer, a cleaning brush, and a vial of oil for the blade. Now for the couple of things I don't like. I wish it had a lithium ion battery instead of the NiMH one. I think this is what gives it the relatively short 30 minute run time and the extra long time it takes to fully charge it. The other thing I didn't like is the charger doesn't indicate with the light when it's fully charged. Since I use it maybe once per week, I don't want to leave it on the charger all the time and taking up wall plug real estate. However, even with those cons this is still the best trimmer I've used so far. I still need another trimmer with the attachments for ear/nose hair, but for trimming everything else this is by far the best.

    Gets the job done. Very convenient

    I've used a variety of beard trimmers and electric shavers over the years. I refuse to spend too much on the more expensive ones that likely do a "more efficient job" than the less expensive ones. I would rather pay significantly less and have to do a few more strokes during the shave than to have a super expensive one that requires less strokes. I had upgraded to a wet/dry electric razor and saw the benefits of being able to shave wet. I would still utilize my dry electric beard trimmer from time to time, but I didn't use it as much because of the dry limitations. Introduce the Panasonic wet/dry beard trimmer, and now I'm all good. It gets the job done pretty easily, and the wet feature makes it well worth the use. I purchased a fogless shower mirror so now I can do all the wet shaving and beard trimming in the shower vs doing it over the sink (of course you have to be mindful of NOT clogging the drain though). I'm very satisfied with this purchase. Hope this helps. Thanks. Matthew 7:12

    Best trimmers I have used yet!

    I cannot say enough how I enjoy using these trimmers. Panasonic has hit this one out of the park in my eyes. The first design I saw that stuck out to me was the charging station, it plugs into the wall and actually stays there. The weight of the trimmers does not pull the charging station out of the socket, great design, now I know it's always charged, without wires and taking up space on my sink. Next, it works, simple as that, no pulling, tugging and ripping off the hair. These trimmers make quick, easy, and comfortable work of facial and head hair. The quick dial adjustment is a great design. It is definitely not made for long beards or hair, but for most, it will work great. The Panasonic trimmers are also very easy to clean, especially with the brush included and then oil them back up, which a tube o oil is included as well. Great job Panasonic, you hit a home run with these I look clean and trimmed up in minutes and I can touch up before leaving to the office every morning in a minute.

    Really good trimmer with comfort features

    So I want to get straight to what makes this electric trimmer so good. It's that at its price point it has every single comfort feature that I would want. It has an adjustable head on it so that you can trim to your desired length. It is rechargeable and the recharge speed works really well. It's also really neat that the charger isn't just a cable that you can plug into it, but it's an actual base. I don't personally keep it out that way because I have cats, but it is a nice thought similar to my toothbrush where it's really convenient. My only complaint is that while it can get the bulk of my thick beard off, it struggles to get the finer parts of my beard which really takes away the "precision" side of it for me, but overall it's a great part to a shaving set and it is easily recommended.

    Powerful Cordless Trimmer Packs a Lot of Pecision

    My favorite feature of the Panasonic Precision Cutting System is the quick adjust dial. Maintaining a beard can be a lot of work if you want it to look nice and groomed (I often just let it run wild). The quick adjust dial easily shaved 15 minutes off of the time it used to take me to properly groom my beard. With so many settings on the dial, a nice fade can be achieved at home. The blades cut through my dense beard surprisingly easy, especially for a cordless trimmer. A single charge on this trimmer lasts for about 30 minutes, meaning that a single charge should be able to get you through our typical business trip or weekend getaway. For some, being able to use this in the shower will be a big plus, as it is waterproof, but I rarely shave in the shower, as I am not capable of grooming myself well without a mirror.

    Great Wet and Dry Trimmer

    This Panasonic Hair Trimmer is great for personal needs. It has both wet and dry operations and therefore provides much variety. Its easy to clean with the drain function. It works for about 50 minutes on a full charge is OK with me - trimming my beard usually takes 5 minutes or less. I like the charging stand (as opposed to the more usual pluf-in charging cord) and have found that cleaning and rinsing it after use only takes a minute or so - and I have ALWAYS cleaned trimmers after each use - so I did not find this suggestion unreasonable or problematic. Also it is cordless which gives you the freedom of movement and frankly these days should be a standard anyways. Overall a good product and a fair price. Recharging time is slightly long

    This is one of the best hair trimmers I've had in a long time. First off I love the fact that it fits nicely in the hand. Upon unboxing it I notice that there was no cord, just an adapter that plugs easily into a bathroom socket and the trimmer sits nicely on the top of the adapter. #NoCords. Also I like that I can use it with my regular shaving cream without it clogging up the blades. I don't shave/trim in the shower, but this trimmer can handle that if you like to do so while in the shower. I've not had to use a lot of the settings, but I did get to use the trimmer on my roommate to trim up his hair and sideburns and it worked out pretty well. Another great quality is that it doesn't take too long for it to charge up which is a plus.

    The Panasonic beard and hair trimmer is practically designed and cuts very well. Some of the best features include the comb attachment and the adjustable blade length (height adjustment control), which makes trimming beards foolproof (no more bald spots by an oops moment). With the comb off, the trimmer can be used for finer cuts and detailing (works great on eyebrow hairs). The charging unit which plugs directly into the wall, and acts as a stand when not charging, is brilliant - eliminating unruly and unsightly cords in the bathroom!

    The box it comes in sets it off initially, but taking it out of the package says it all. Panasonic has gone above and beyond with this thing. It's very easy to clean and use in or out of the shower when trying to get a quick trim. The on the fly dial in for changes hair cut height is easy using the dial. The battery seems to last for a while, let alone the size of the charger makes it easy for travel and lose by attaching it to the razor as it clicks into place.

    Panasonic is the only brand I trust when it comes to beard and hair trimmers. It also lasts a long time. I had mine for 12 years and the only reason I’m replacing it is because I left it in a hotel. So for me it was a no-brainer to buy the same brand. This new model wet/dry trimmer from Panasonic is even better than my old one. Charges quickly, very quiet when in operation, easy to clean, and trims precisely.

    These work very well. Advance features are the adjustable closeness just by turning a dial, the ability to use in the shower, and the cleverly design charging base. The base plugs directly into an outlet and the the trimmers sit on top of it. You can leave the trimmers on the base instead of them taking up drawer space. The adjustable head can be removed for completely close and precise trimming. These trimmers have everything I could want and all in a very well thought out design.

    Such a nice hair trimmer. The adjustable settings allow you to change according to how you would like your cut. The included charger stand needs to be plugged into the wall so you will need to find a good area to charge, but it's compact so it won't take up a lot of space. It is very easy to use, got a nice even cut all around. This is a great gift for the guy in your life that likes to keep up their beards.

    I've been using this to trim my face and hair. It has plenty of power, and I haven't yet had to charge it since I got it about a week ago. I use it every other day to trim my face and I trimmed the sides and back of my hair, and neck, and it's still going strong. It works great. I was getting my hair cut every two weeks, but now I'll use this to trim my sides, and won't have to go that often to get it cut.
